Review University of the Cumberlands
I loved my time at Cumberlands. I stayed for all four years, and It was very calm and peaceful, since the mountains are really the only thing to do besides study around there. If you're serious about education, it works well. However, the administration had ignored me when I asked for help on several occasions in several different departments. The staff here do not care and are not as polite as they appear to be, apart from the professors, who have only treated me with great kindness and genuine interest in me as a person. This place as a whole only cares about your money, and they largely misuse it on campus as well. It was a mixed experience for me.
This school is the perfect small town university in this nation. It is defiantly a great fit for anyone who doesn't want a lot of attention placed on them but wants to improve themselves quietly or by their own standards then this is the best place possible. I have been at this particular university for two years now, and i have worked my way past my first failed class to making a 3.0 GPA. All has been because of my teachers and friends I've made here since leaving my comfort zone in my other little town school Jellico High school. I would recommend this school to anyone in this world.
What I experienced at Cumberlands was once in a lifetime opportunity. The school itself is just amazing. The faculty always try to help the college students. From the highest level of the faculty to the lowest level. They just want the best for their fellow students. I liked how they tried to make the diverted students for an example the Mexican students feel comfortable and make them feel like they were at home. To make them comfortable and feel as if they were at home they celebrated Cinco de Mayo. I would like to change the way they do their testing at the end of the year. I would like for them to give out the test around the middle of the school year. I also liked how students helped each other out and how they interacted with one another.
