What Students Are Saying

3.97 Average Rating
Mckendree is small which means better student-teacher relationships. Its is a great school to do net working at. The value of the teachers are great.
Diandra from Lebanon, IL
McKendree offers a huge state university education in a small town, close knit package. Tuition isn't fantastic, but there are a ton of scholarship opportunities, and all of McK's scholarships stack, so you can build upon what you've earned. Come and be a Bearcat!
