Trevecca Nazarene University Reviews

Trevecca has a fantastic faculty with amazing programs of study. Professors take the time even in larger classes to really get to know all of their students and encourage them with their studies. The Student Government is very active and there are always ways to get involved on campus! They do a wonderful job of trying to make everyone feel included.

Rated four stars because many of the buildings are not wheelchair friendly and difficult to access. This is not the best accessible campus. Also, the food leaves a lot to be desired. Everyone who lives on campus is required to be on a meal plan, and there are limited options other than a full meal plan. Overall it's overpriced for the quality.

I have attended Trevecca in the past and lived on campus, but now I am attending online as a graduate student. The classes are both challenging and interactive. I have learned so much about myself as well as approaches and logic that apply to life and work. Along the way I have also enjoyed getting to know my classmates. Glad to be a part of TNU!
Most professors are very willing to help you succeed. They're qualified and always available. On the other hand, apart from the professors, most faculty works here through Nepotism (meaning they only hire family members or people close to that category, e.g., people who go to their church). So, faculty usually treats students like mere numbers. They get really upset when they have to move a finger and try their hardest to pass their job along to student workers, since they're too lazy to get up and do their own jobs. Another point worth mentioning is that they are very hardcore in their religion. You will most certainly get annoyed if you're not very religious here. You're forced to take 3 religion classes covering stuff that no non-religion major should ever have to worry about. But hey, it's knowledge, so I'll take it! They will, however, try their best to always suck more and more money out of you, so be aware.
