What Students Are Saying

3.74 Average Rating
Central Methodist University is a 9 out of 10 school in my opinion. I love how small it is, how close you are to your professors and how clean things are becoming. Organization could be a little better, but I love it all in all.
Kaylee from Wentzville, MO
If you are looking for a small college, then this is the place to be. Everyone is always willing to help and friendly.
