Spring Arbor University Reviews
I LOVED my four years at Spring Arbor University! I met my best friends for life. I love the concentration of academics and strong encouragement from all the faculty. I was planning to go to grad school after college and I felt very prepared and so did all of my friends. Honestly, I wish I used more of their resources, but I do not regret anything else.
I have loved getting know the campus and everyone at Spring Arbor. Everyone on the campus is incredibly kind and helpful! The professors are always there to answer a question or guide you in what to do next. The students are amazing and the amount of activities offered on campus allow you to meet all kinds of different people. This university generally cares for its students and I am so happy that I will be attending here.
If you are interested in getting an education from a smaller, faith-affiliated school, then I would recommend attending Spring Arbor University. The professors are great and being at a smaller school allows you to get to know them better. Getting a liberal arts education was valuable, as I found myself learning about a variety of topics. That along with the cross cultural requirement broadened my perspective and encouraged me to think critically.
