I love the close knit community feel of the campus. The campus itself is beautiful and you can walk to all your classes! The professors there really care about their students. I have been able to ask professors about future career decisions and get helpful answers! The campus atmosphere is warm and friendly and that welcoming feel has made it like my second home. If you choose University of the Cumberlands, you will not be disappointed.

The University of the Cumberlands is a very small college in which you can form a real, quality relationship with your professors and peers. They care about your education, but also make you realize that your future is in your hands. Most of my classes were entertaining and kept me engaged.

My only problem was how small it was. I've always longed for the big city life, and there's not many activities around town without having to drive for a little while.
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.
