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!
Review Spalding University
It has a really great environment for it's students with great teachers who really get to know the students and build a relationship with them. I love it here! It is pretty pricey but the education received is top notch! It has majors that some schools in the area does not, so that makes it unique. Also, our schedules are on a 6 week session schedule year round instead of full semesters. I really enjoy the way the classes are set up! I would not choose to do it over again, I'm very happy with the education I am receiving!
I have liked most of my professors. They all made class engaging and learning fun. Some of the classes I thought I would hate going to, actually turned out to be great experiences. I actually liked one of my professors so much, that I decided to take another course by her. All of my classes have been pretty small, compared to what other colleges are used to. But that is good for me because the professors actually know you by name and actually help when you ask. Some of my classes have just been the professor lecturing and asking a few questions, but the classes I have enjoyed the most are the ones that are completely discussion. At first, I did not like that I had to participate to make a good grade, but by the end of my first class like that, it was easy for me to be apart of the discussion.
