What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
MacMurray College has a small campus and student body along with a low student to teacher ratio. The professors are very involved with their classes and will help you upon request. The courses to pick from vary and are very interesting to take.
Ashley from Springfield, IL
This is my first year at MacMurray I am a transfer student. I just finished my first semester and so far I like the school a lot compared to my previous school. The class rooms are a very comfortable environment and you can receive all the help you need.
