Will learn a lot
I have researched this college and have gotten to know many faculty. I believe I will learn a lot because of the support I will get.
Will enjoy being here
Being part of smaller College that should be easier to navigate is something I look forward to. I believe I will enjoy it at MacMurray because I look forward to making life long friends.
I give MacMurray College *****
Bang for the buck
The registrar's office has been most helpful and working with the financial aid department I find MacMurray very affordable.
Tips for prospective students
Give them a call. Anyone will be very helpful and go out of their way to help you through the process and let you know of many special interest that await you at MacMurray College.
Great for these types of students
This College is great for new student who come from mostly private, charter or small high schools. You will feel right at home I'm sure I will coming from a small private school. I have tried the larger College and it was too overwhelming and if you don't have alot of initiative your first year you can get lost.

In three sentences
everything considered, macmurray is a great college with small class sizes, personal interaction from your professors, and genuine care about your education from everyone here. they have a free tutoring center which employs your peers to help you pass your toughest classes. you'll be hard pressed to find a better deal.
Tips for prospective students
use the center for learning excellence, it will save your life on more then one occasion if you do.
Academic Rigor
the courses can feel a bit minimal at times, but the interactions you get with your professors more then make up for it.
Dorm Life
the only down side to the dorms are the sometimes glitch rendered heating systems. this is much better in the upper class dorms due to personal heaters however.
Food and Dining
whats not to love about all you can eat buffet style food and an on campus restaurant included in your room and board?
What to do for fun
down town springfield is only a half hour away if you want to get away from the quiet life of jacksonville, else-wise your fellow college mates are usually more then willing to do just about anything.
Bang for the buck
as one of the cheapest private schools in illinois, macmurray is definately the best spent dollar you'll ever make.
