University of Findlay Reviews
When Covid-19 hit, the University of Findlay went complete remotely administered classes. Me, being an animal science/pre-vet emphasis major, was devastated by this decision because my classes consisted of animal handling, which is one main reason students come to Findlay. Although that was heartbreaking, my science and core classes went great! The teachers were able to still connect with us through Zoom and were always willing to Zoom individually if you had extra questions. The switch to online classes was not only hard on the students but on the professors also. But luckily my professors were more lenient on online assignments, given the circumstances, which was very helpful. The exam were to the same degree of difficulty and were monitored online so no cheating could occur.
The University of Findlay is a great school for students who prefer a smaller scale education. The class sizes are perfect! You are able to form friendships with other students and professors easily but do not feel as if the school is too small. I would see a new face everyday and it really surprised me! The overall atmosphere is light, inviting and cheerful and its always easy to find a smiling face! The professors truly care about each student and put in hours upon hours just to see each student succeed. They are always a text or phone call away and most are understanding. There is always something going on at campus. Whether it's a basketball game or a club putting an event together, there's always something to do. Findlay, Ohio is a great place to call your second home!
Since coming to Findlay I have met a lot of fantastic people. I've made really good friends, I consider school now more of home than when I go back to my parents. I definitely think if you are interested in pharmacy or animal related fields this is the school for you. Chemistry and Biology classes are hard, but they are mostly taught be phenomenal professors. The only major thing I'd like changed, is the dining hall to expand, but that's what happens when you go to a smaller school, not as many food options! But off-campus food options are abundant and mostly reasonably priced.
