Spring Arbor University Reviews
Spring Arbor University has the most caring and compassionate professors I have ever experienced or ever thought I could experience. This is the primary reason I choose to to this college. Every single professor you have will be nothing short of wonderful. You will love going to every class- if you love to learn! Your academic adviser will be very hands on, get to know you extremely well, and work with you through every step of your college experience the very best they can. I was a member of the women's cross country team and experienced a true family among the athletes here, as well. This is a beautiful campus, full of beautiful hearts. There is no party life, the town is quite boring. There is a pizza place and a Mcdonalds (With a 24 hour drive thru that you can walk through!) Most of the kids there are white and raised in cute little christian upbringings. If you're not from this lifestyle it can make you a little uncomfortable.
Spring Arbor University is the perfect small school. The people here are awesome. If you want a place where you can walk across campus and know 10 out of the 20 people that you just walked past, this is the place for you. The professors care about you and your education, and about what you are doing as a student to further your experience in the classroom. Campus is small, and the closest 'big town' is about ten minutes away, but you can always find things to do and people to do them with if you try hard enough. If you don't think a big school is for you, then SAU might be a good option! Our CORE program does a really good job of getting new students hooked up with a student mentor and a group of fellow classmates from the first day on campus. You get to grow with this group and you might find that some of those people will be your good friends.
I am entering my second year with Spring Arbor University which has been less than satisfactory. I attend Spring Arbor's School of Education courses through North Central Michigan College's Cohort, the community college in the small city where I live and work full time. Like many others, I am going to school while juggling many other responsibilities. North Central's administration has made this educational journey as easy as they could, but Spring Arbor's administration has failed me over and over. They're impossible to contact, unorganized, and down right unprofessional. If it were'nt for the local adjunct professors they assign to our courses being so amazing I would've switched to a different university long ago.
