Spring Arbor University Reviews
I am very grateful for the people and community of Spring Arbor. While nothing and no where will ever be perfect, I can most certainly say my spiritual and personal life was challenged in amazing ways. I greatly appreciate the amazing student development team that so lovingly listened and invested in me all four years. Upon reflection on my time so for at SAU, I would have to consider almost every class and professor I had to have been top-notch and while I didn't always agree with everything (which is in my opinion a good thing because it is dangerous if we are seeking 100% agreement), it was coming from a place of openness, authenticity, and a passion for Christ-like love. Thanks SAU for all you did and do and for the prayer you pour into the community. I wish I could do a personal shout out to everyone that God used to impact my life at SAU but the list would be far too long! Blessings!
Spring Arbor University is a wonderful four year, liberal arts, Christian, private university in Michigan. It offers a wide range of majors with a wonderful faculty. The best part about this school is that it really focuses on cultivating community between students and between students and faculty. The professors here genuinely care about your well being. The class sizes are small so you receive one-on-one attention quite often. My favorite part about SAU thus far has been COR100, which is a required course your first semester of freshmen year. In this course, you are paired with roughly twenty other freshmen. I met my two best friends through COR100, and am so thankful at how important community is to my school. We have fun student events constantly happening and a booming athletic department, so there's always some sport to be watching.Overall, I would highly recommend Spring Arbor University to anyone looking to get a liberal arts degree from a small school.
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.
