I love Newman, and I would recommend it to just about anyone! The instructors are caring, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. The campus is clean and well-maintained. The other students in my concentration are all focused and helpful, as well. The only problem that I have run into was that the Office of Disability Services is not as knowledgeable as perhaps would be preferred or expected for a university.

Overall, Newman University is an excellent school. Since the university is so small, Professors are able help each student outside of class. People are friendly for the most part, there are plenty of events on campus to stay engaged, and the faculty and staff (for the most part) seem to care about each individual student. No university is perfect. There will be issues wherever one chooses to attend. For example, it is, in my opinion, extremely expensive to attend Newman University. There are numerous other issues, but it is a great school and I would recommend others to go here.
I really enjoy the teachers I have, they’re very knowledgeable and do a great job of teaching their subject. The only thing I would change is making the program a semester longer because they have way too much packed into one semester. But otherwise it’s great!
