Most Helpful Review for Shorter University

It depends on what you are studying. If it is Journalism, no it is no different than my high school experience. If it is Musical Theater, well that's a horse of a different color! If you don't mind a very small school environment, their MT program is great. Packed full of great teachers. However, just like at most high schools, they place priority on sports, and definitely NOT Musical Theater as their facilities for Performing Arts, for example, are way below par. They only have one tiny black box theater on campus, in the basement of a really old building!

    Just moved in. Dorm not impressive. Dirty walls need painting. Some electric outlets do not work. Floor tiles are broken and chipped. The mold bleeding thru the ceiling paint in the bathroom is scared. YIKES! Definitely not the room they showed on my visitation.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    This is a perfectly mediocre Christian school. The food is ok(ish), and the campus is tiny, but secluded. The mood on campus is a little gloomy.

    Shorter has the nicest student body and faculty that I have ever witnessed. The students are so fun and beyond welcoming; it's impossible not to make friends by the end of your first day. The teachers all have an open door policy, so it's very easy to get help on your assignments.

    Small personal campus with warm welcomes. Class sizes are small and easy to talk to and know your professors. Easy to get involved in activities on campus and connect with other students.

    Tight community. Small classes and one on one professor time. Great tutoring opportunities.

    The best thing about Shorter is their community. The teachers and students are all very helpful and respectful. College is a place to make lasting relationships, and Shorter makes that a possibility.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    Its a small private school where everyone knows you. Its an old school with the oldest indoor pool. You will have the feeling of right once you walk around.
