Shorter University Reviews
Review Shorter University
Shorter University is an amazing college! The main college campus is amazing because it is all together "up on the hill". They call it "Shorter on the hill." Everything is all together and the classes are the perfect size. The classes are not too big and it allows the students to create a good relationship with their professors. All the students are able to connect to each other and maintain healthy relationships. This school truly is a place where people can go to make lifelong relationships and start an amazing journey in their life.
The professors are mostly good and want you to succeed. Also, there are some great people at Shorter, if you look for them. On the other hand, the facilites at Shorter are sub-par, the administration is terrible, the security is scary, and the classrooms are outdated. In addition, the cafeteria food is bland with little selection to choose from. The athletic program is cheap and does not support their athletes. Most students at Shorter that I talk with are transferring to another school. There are far better schools one can attend at the steep-price Shorter charges. ~Michael Carew
I love that my school is small. It makes it easier to know and keep up relationships with people, not to mention walking to class on time! The music and theatre department are small, but all the professors know their stuff and are more than willingly to work with students one-on-one. The small classroom settings for me as a performer means more stage/working time ad I love that.
