I am currently enrolled at Taylor University and I love it! This place is my home and the friends I have made there will last a lifetime. Attending Taylor has helped me grow so much in my faith, and it has helped me become a more independent, well-rounded individual. The one complaint that I have heard a lot about Taylor is its location. Yes, it is in the middle of a cornfield, but I have never been bored and I have attended this school for a year and a half now. There is so much to do on campus and there are several smaller cities within 30 minutes of campus and two large cities within 1 hour if you really need to find something to do.
I live in Breuninger and absolutely love it! The floor is always extremely clean thanks to the maintenance and housekeeping, and the close proximity to the dining hall is really great. Most of the friends I have made are from my dorm. While there isn't Greek life at Taylor, each dorm kind of serves as a fraternity or sorority because of how tight knit each one is. I applied early for housing too, so I had no issues getting into Breu (which was my first choice).

Concerning the quality of courses offered, there will always be an integration of Faith and Learning. This is more visible in some classes than others, and some disciplines make it hard for this to happen. The quality of education at Taylor University, I would consider to be above average for a college. Each teacher cares about individuals, and are more than willing to help students who seek help. Each professor is also more than willing to form first-name relationships with students, should they seek to know them better.

Concerning class styles, Taylor mixes group work, lecture, and student teaching into their curriculum. Depending on the class, each professor will vary how, where, and when these styles are used. In Psychology, group discussion is heavily used in classrooms, especially one classroom designed like a courtroom, specifically for the purpose of group discussion.
