The students are VERY diverse, especially when it comes to sexuality. Everyone, including the faculty, are friendly and willing to help in any way they can. The unique 6 week scheduling make classes and homework assignments easier to manage. As for improvements, I believe more art-related programs should be added, like theater!

I just transferred from the University of Louisville to join the Nursing program at Spalding University. I chose Spalding because it is a small private school. I knew I was going to get a better learning experience. I didn't know much about the school but as soon as I came in contact with the faculty and staff I couldn't have been more impressed. They were extremely helpful when it came to getting everything transferred and in on time. They worked with me and most importantly made me extremely important. You can tell that the staff really does care about you and your education. I feel excited to be there and I know the staff and faculty are cheering me on!
Spalding University is the best school around. The staff is amazing and dedicated to our success. I am a non traditional student and they couldn't have made things easier for me. Applying was easy, getting an appointment with an adviser was easy, and so was getting a hold of my professors. They have received an award for being a compassionate college. I am know in the OT masters program and feel like I made the very best choice I could in picking Spalding as my school.
