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!

I am a high school student, however I believe that I am able to comment on Newman University, as I have been taking college courses from Newman. In my high school career, I have thoroughly enjoyed taking my college grade classes from Newman University. The professors have been helpful in every class, and their educating styles are easy to follow. I have not seen the campus, so I have no authority to judge on any on-campus facilities or activities. However, as I stated previously, the education has been helpful within my career path, and it has set me up for the types of courses that I will be taking in college.
Newman is a wonderful place to obtain a college degree. So far in my education, it has been nothing but great. The professors truly care about students' education; they hold review sessions before test and put in a lot of extra hours outside of class. Newman has a very strong science program, so if you're looking at going to graduate school to become a physician, dentist, physical therapist, etc. I would strongly recommend Newman. In addition to its science program, Newman also has a very strong Nursing program, school of education, and Criminal Justice program. If you're looking for a big college environment Newman probably isn't the school for you; it's pretty small.
