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.
I'm working on my MBA and I have to admit, I'm really happy with my learning experience. The classes are small and done in a cohort fashion. Professors are usually quick to respond or contact students when something happens. I've kept most of my books from my classes to reference when I graduate and I've already been able to "publish" some of the materials I've written for my classes after making some recommended tweaks. I feel good about my education. Trevecca's campus is small and feels safe at night even though it's located in a semi-questionable part of Nashville. The only complaint I have is our academic advisor has switched out a couple times which has made it confusing to get a hold of my class schedule or to ask questions about it.
The overall experience is great! However, I would not recommend non-Christians to attend this school. You will definitely feel left out since the school has a strong and solid Christian base.

It's a small school and professors care and follow up on your achievements. They're there for you and will do whatever they can to make sure you know their subject once the semester is over.
