Shorter University Reviews
The atmosphere! The university has an amazing staff! The President, Admissions Advisors, Financial Advisors, and even the cafeteria staff are so special! They roll out the red carpet! Shorter University has beautiful facilities and grounds. It has a southern charm that cannot be surpassed by any other establishment.
In the online degree studies, professors are great at providing comments and input to each week's assignments and reaching out to students with announcements and messages each week. I love that even though not being in the traditional classroom setting, I still feel involved with other classmates through weekly discussions and that the professors make an effort to connect with students.
My experience with Shorter is great so far. I am glad that I am able to attend through dual-enrollment. It is a great program with lots of benefits and the fact that Shorter works with this program is amazing! I love the campus. It is fully stocked with necessary tools needed from the library to coffee shops that help the student keep working. I like the benefits it provides for its students. I hope to attend there in the fall of 2019.
