Multnomah is a Christian based bible college that features a variety of majoring opportunities, campus activities, and a diverse student base. Class sizes are smaller, paving the way for one on one time with professors. Stimulating personal relationships is easy and campus life is involved and exciting on a daily basis. They give opportunities for scholarships for simply visiting campus, and attending certain events. All in all, MU is a slice of Portland that is all it's own. It's a place in which one can develop their relationship with Christ, and enjoy fellowship regularly with quality people.
Review Multnomah University
I have enjoyed all of my counseling classes at Multnomah University! I feel as if each one has pushed me to improve my knowledge and worldviews. However, Multnomah requires students to take four bible classes, I must be honest these classes are extremely difficult and time consuming! They are more rigorous then my counseling classes to say the least. I wish they would incorporate the bible classes into the counseling material. I would suggest for them to drop them or modify the workload. 540 per credit is no joke.
My overall experience at Multnomah University has so far met all my expectations. All of the professors I have had the privilege of learning from have been incredible. They sincerely care about their students and make themselves available for counseling. The campus itself is beautiful and well taken care of. My only criticism is that the campus is in a part of town that is seeing some decay. Safety on campus has never been a concern, but as in any city, crime surrounds us.
