Southern Nazarene University Reviews
Southern Nazarene University is a great school. I love the small class setting, the caring professors and the overall environment of SNU. I am a psychology major and love the psychology department. They try to not only help us learn, but focus on helping us to become better individuals and foster important virtues. Some say SNU is restrictive, but they care about values and they care about their students. The only issue I've had is getting things figured out in the business office and financial aid office, but besides that, I love it. Southern Nazarene University was the best choice for me.
Southern Nazarene University is an amazing university that has the best professors and staff that I have ever seen! The professors truely care about their students and the classes are small so you get the attention you need to succeed in every course. I would have chosen my university differently the first time around if I had know the difference between a regular university and a Christian university.
I have to say the campus is gorgeous! All the professors I had we're very knowledgeable. Overall I had a really good experience. Being a religious school, part of your requirement is to attend chappel twice for credit to be able to come back the next semester. This was really the only thing I did not really like
