I received my bachelor's degree in Business Administration from Park University. I took all of my classes online or at a satellite campus so I have no experience with the brick and mortar campus. The classes are not easy so if you are looking for a degree mill, keep looking. Classes are challenging and Park has a good solid reputation. I recommend!
I love this school. Everyone is so friendly, the campus is beautiful, and the class sizes are small enough for professors to be able to help you 1 on 1. Close to downtown, always stuff to do! Not a very social/late night school, which is one downside. The dorms are beautiful! There are events on campus every once and awhile, great way to meet people. It's small so meeting people is not easy, but everyone is so friendly!
Park is very unique because of the variety of students on and off campus. Each sports team represents a different country, the men's soccer team is Brazilian and Chillein, the women's soccer team is English, the Women's Volleyball team is Brazilian while the men's is Russian. There is also a large population of middle Easter students in the engendering and science programs. This school is one of a kind. Our president is heavily involved in the student life, from attending the sporting events to hosting student faculty meals. A school I would recommend others attend.
