Shorter University Reviews
Shorter University is a very great school for anyone who wants to learn! The school is located in Rome, Ga, which is a small town in the north western part of Georgia. The school is a Christian based school and does not allow any parties on campus, which is great because you can focus on your education more! The sports teams aren’t really all that great but the Hawks spirit is felt through the campus! The school has newer building and some building a that have been there since the school was first built, which is pretty cool! I would highly recommend Shorter University to any student who is wanting to grow in their education and their faith!
When I went to my official visit the administrators and staff were very helpful and accommodating. I was traveling from Florida. I had to be there before 3:00 P.M. I got caught in the Atlanta traffic, on a Friday afternoon . All, were very friendly and informative. They brought me to more areas around campus and I was able to see the football field and the locker room. After we all went out to eat with some of the team members and other athletes who came on the visit. I was able to get to know more about the coaches and how they were on a personal level. This is a huge commitment, making that decision knowing that this will be my home for 4 years of college and playing football. I made the commitment to go to Shorter to continue my education and play football. I know in my heart this would be the best decision for me. I'm forever grateful for the Lord who lead me to Shorter.
Shorter University is a great private christian university. I love the close knit community, the christian environment, and classrooms. When you walk around campus, you recognize every face even if you don't know their name. There are many christ-centered events to attend or be a part of around campus. The classrooms are small and the teacher knows all the students by name and can help you out individually whenever.
