The staff is great and incredibly helpful. I have yet to have a bad experience with a professor there. They're always friendly, and more than willing to help students with plenty of one-on-one time. The student body is also great with plenty of different clubs and activities, as well as good accommodations to help students succeed. It's a small campus, but it's great!
Review Newman University
My adviser knows my name, and what I want out of life. This is what has made my experience at Newman a good one. Having a relationship with my professors instilled in me a sense of personal accountability. My instructors never fail to encourage me to keep getting better. The faculty wants success for their students and they do their part to ensure that success. Life outside of the classroom is not as impressive. However, Newman does not make it impossible to have a great college experience, but that has to be an active choice by each student. Getting a great education without much entertainment outside of the classroom seems like an okay compromise to me. After all, It is not the responsibility of my university to entertain me. I went to college wanting a intense four years of personal growth, Newman made that possible.
My favorite experience would be heading down to the coffee lounge and singing karaoke with a stranger and becoming best-friends with her after. What makes my school unique is the fact that it is a catholic school, but they are not strict and want people to be who they are and believe in what they want, mainly what Newman wants is for students to become a better people by helping the community and in helping the community we make ourselves feel better. If I could go back in time when I was a Senior in high school I would choose Newman every-time. Newman University is very challenging and I like a challenge. There are always activities to do and everybody just wants to make you feel welcomed. All the teachers want you to be is the best you can be and help you reach your goals and level of potential they can see, but you can't.
