The professors and faculty really know their stuff when it comes to teaching their subject and challenge their students well. If you're looking for a solid faith based school to attend for college or a solid seminary program I highly recommend it. It is still a very conservatively Bible believing Christian based campus and culture, so be thinking about that when making your decision, but they are starting to develop more of their sports departments and start up some exciting developments in their music and the arts, and worship ministry degree programs in the coming years as well.

multnomah univeristy is a great college to get your bible degree! It also offers other degrees, but it focuses a lot on the bible! Teachers, staff, alumni, etc. are very supportive with everything! A small school, so small classes to get a relationship with your professors. A great, safe, warming environment. Everyone at the school, all the way down to the students are very supportive! The dorm rooms are very nice and welcoming! A good dorm room size. Diversity lacks a little, but as a community, we are all working together to make a diverse community! A small school, so you will know pretty much everyone on campus!
If you are looking for a home with the perfect mixture of life and relationship with Christ, well look no more for Multnomah is the place for you! With a wide variety of classes and majors to choose from no matter what classroom you find yourself seated in you will always feel like you are getting the perfect balance of education and Christ in your life while still enjoying the daily pleasures of college life. Never will you feel out of place or as if you do not belong for Multnomah staff and students are always willing to talk or hang out. The campus has many events to offer from Swing Dancing to Worship nights were students are encouraged to lead these events or even sit back and enjoy the discussion. Wherever you find yourself on campus, it'll be having a blast while praising the Lord.
