    Recent Alumnus: I enjoyed my time here for the most part. The instructors were nice and knew their students by first name basis. The school is small and personable. I transferred here from Northern Michigan University and I do not regret it one bit. The biggest thing I would change about this school is the administration and other higher position holders who refuse to embrace change or modernization in anyway. Nobody wants the school to get with the times or do anything new. Everyone is stuck in their old ways and refuse to listen to fresh ideas, therefore nothing gets down and the school remains the same and enrollment continues to plummet. I do however praise the new president of the University, Thomas Pleger. He is certainly open to new ideas. He is easily relatable and makes has a presence around campus. The first time I met him, (his first week moving to this school during the summer), I had no idea he was even the new president. He was a much younger man than one would typically associate with a university president. He was in the gym working out like any other student or staff member. I spoke to him for nearly 15 minutes before he introduced whom he was. I had attended the university for 3 years previous and couldnt tell you what the former president looked like. I applaud Tom for all of his hard work during his first year on campus. He definitely seems to have the universities best interest in his goals and is willing to consider new ideas and embrace change. Also, not sure why it seems to be a reoccurring theme at this school, and off topic but the Track and Field coaches are always arrogant assholes who are extremely passive aggressive like to cause trouble.

    College Sophomore: I enjoy being apart of the campus life and having a school family. I went through so much during fall 2014 semester. I went to three funerals in three weeks during finals in December. The first funeral was my god-brother, who was shoot and killed at gunpoint in the back of the head. He was only twenty-one years old. Then, my god-uncle past away naturally, but suddenly. He saw his family one last time before passing in the living room of his home. He gave the best advice and had the most in depth conversation a great mind could imagine. Lastly, my fellow classmate that I would see everyday in English class, or during work study in the science department was killed in a car accident. After we had finished finals for that week in December, he was going to a party to celebrate. The car rolled over on his side splitting his skull. The whole English class and Marygrove student body was devastated. Through all the darkness that was surrounding my life, Marygrove was there. They supported me when I thought all was lost and wanted to give up completely. My academic advisor Dr. Page, my success coach Diane Clark, and many more helped me when I thought I was helpless. I was able to pass that semester with all B's. I will never forget that kind of support because it was so personal. They took the time out to go the extra mile, beyond caring. I am proud to be a Marygrove Mustang. Go green and gold!!!!!!!!!
