Am learning a lot
methodist university is small but powerful. each teacher gived you office hours to go and see them and if you can't make it in those few hours you can send them an email and request an appointment to talk to them. by the end of the semester they know who you and will even talk to you as you pass them in the halways later on even when your not in their class. your a million in one at this school instead of one in a million!
Am enjoying being here
you beging to know everyone and get tons of friends in the process
Tips for prospective students
don't slack although its a friendly environment, college is not like high school where you can pass a test even if you didn't study. you have to do the work in college of you fail. there's no getting around it. when they say zero tollerance policy they really mean it.

Methodist University is a diverse school that offers a quality education for people from all aspects of life. At Methodist you can expect to receive personal attention from your professors because of the smaller class sizes. Methodist offers a great learning and social atmosphere, and is dedicated to academic excellence.
Tips for prospective students
Stay focused. One of the hardest things to do as a Freshman is to stay focused.

Food and Dining
The food and dining on campus is great. Starting 2013/2014 school semester their will be opportunities for even better food and dining experiences.
What to do for fun
There are lots of activities you can get involved with on campus at Methodist University. Clubs are always fun to join. There are also other opportunities to do fun stuff close to campus. One example would be bowling. There is a bowling ally directly across from the University.

Because Methodist is such a great school, the education you receive exceeds the cost of tuition.

Methodist University class sizes give each student the opportunity to learn from the professors and not become lost in the system. The professors are dedicated and passionate about their subjects. Each student is given the opportunity to excel.
Tips for prospective students
Grades are not handed to you at Methodist. It requires studying and asking questions. Two hours of studying a week in Biology, for example, is not going to cut it. The material is in depth and if you do your part you can learn a lot.
Academic Rigor
The classes are challenging and the professors expect you to try.
Dorm Life
I am a commuting student so I know virtually nothing about dorm life.
Food and Dining
The food options on campus are great and inexpensive. There are several small set ups in some of the building if you need to grab a quick snack.
What to do for fun
There is always something going on. Sporting events, volunteer opportunities, and other typical college events such as pep rallies are constantly happening.
Bang for the buck
Methodist is a private school so it is a tad expensive. However, the location and small class sizes make it worth it for me.
Great for these types of students
Nursing, Physicians Assistants, Education, Biology, English, and Religion
Campus Safety
The campus has controlled access points to enter by car. There are also patrols and phones in case someone needs to be walked to their car after a late class.

Every professor here at Methodist is a pro in there subject. They instruct every class with so that you are engaged and wanting to come to class. The professors are caring, they even willing to hear your questions whether it is during office hours, during class, before or after class.
Am enjoying being here
The library staff is laid back compared to other libraries I have been too. Everyone is nice courteous to everyone.
Bang for the buck
Get involved, most clubs are free due to the student activity fee. Very little items get a cost added, like free printing in the library or events in the Reeves are most free with a student identification card.
Tips for prospective students
Get involved.

It has a beautiful campus, and is easily accessible. Very progressive in its future endeavours. All around a fun, and worth while University to attend.
Tips for prospective students
Live on campus. That will help kick start your social life. Then, join a Fraternity or Sorority. Those will help you tremendously with finding work, with school work, and a social life.
Academic Rigor
The classes are difficult, but with difficulty, comes learning. The teachers are always ready to help as well.
Dorm Life
I give it a three because the dorms are a bit outdated, but they are planning a remodel to bring them up to par.
Food and Dining
Always a good meal at MU. Whether it's in the Cafe, or in the Lion's Den. Good variety, and cater's to all the different cultures.
What to do for fun
Go out with friends! Join the Greek life! The student union is always buzzing with activity. The basketball courts usually always have a game. The gym is readily available to all who need a run, workout, or just want to play an indoor sport.
Bang for the buck
It's expensive, but with the progress the school is going through, it's understandable. All the different activities held by the Campus life Group on site make the stay well worth it. Trips to Key West, ski-ing, the beach; all are great activities that the Campus has to offer.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Right before exams, the library is buzzing with the sounds of papers rustling, book pages turning, pencils etching. That would be your go to place for help, and or study time.
Great for these types of students
Students who enjoy smaller classes, one on one help with professor's who know you by name, and don't mind walking to classes.
Clubs and Activities
Greek life especially. They have things going on every day, and every month. The schools campus activities organization, CRIMP, always has fun stuff right around the corner for students. Not just the watermelon smashing events, but things like tournaments for sports, games, foam parties, water activities, cookouts, and so much more!
Greek Life
Its recently been revived on campus and is going strong. They are a tight knit community and are always eager to talk to anyone they cross. They accept everyone and anyone who is deemed worthy to cross those hallowed steps into brotherhood, or sisterhood, and all are welcome to join. The Greek life also hosts events such as Lip Sync Band Competitions, Inter-murals, Rock Climbing, Bowling, and Paintball games.
Campus Safety
MU holds Safety in its highest regards. They have campus security always on guard and watch. Its not state of the art technology, but you are safe once you are inside.

Methodist University is a very friendly college. The professors are very helpful and they're really easy to talk to. The small class sizes is excellent which means more one on one time with the professors.

The dorm life is great. The RA's are students and they help you alot especially for students who are entering their first year.
Food and Dining
The food on campus is very good. Methodist has a lot of international students so somedays the cafe will serve international food. The workers are very nice and friendly.
What to do for fun
Methodist has a lot of activites to do. There are so times when they will show movies on the softball field or even take trips. One year we took a trip to Key West, Florida and it was only 30 dollars. It was worthwhile.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
After a long day of studying my friends and I would take a trip to the fountain and relax. There were also days we would eat ice cream under the gazebo by the basketball courts. It gave us a chance to unwind and relax.
Clubs and Activities
There are many clubs and activities on campus. The most popular club is the Student Activites Commitee (SAC). SAC is who host most of the activites on campus. We've also recently formed a step team on campus.

Methodist has 2 sorrorities and 5 fraternies. The greek life is always hosting events on campus like cookouts that the students can attend.

The campus safety is very upscale at Methodist. We have our campus police riding around on campus all day. We even have booths set up around campus that you can use to alert campus police if anything happens.

Am learning a lot
I absolutely love the student to professor ratio. Other than the general Biology classes, none of my classes have more than 30 students which makes a world of difference when it comes to academics. My professors know me on a first name basis and if I need extra help, they are more than happy to set up a time for me to come see them in their office hours that they have set. We also are expanding our buildings and updating the technology in our classrooms. Our simulation lab is top notch for the criminology students and there is a brand new science building for all Biology and Chemistry students. There is also a brand new Art building for the more creative students.
Am enjoying being here
I absolutely LOVE it! Yes, it is a small campus, but I know almost everybody! A small campus does not have to be a bad thing! I also am very heavily involved in Greek Life which brings a large university aspect to our small campus. There are also a ton of clubs and organizations to get involved with that make it easier for a transition from high school to college. Methodist University has a very friendly environment that makes everyone feel welcome! We also have a very diverse student population with a high number of International students. This adds a great cultural enrichment for all American students and many opportunities to learn about other countries and lifestyles! I love having friends from all over the world!
Bang for the buck
Methodist University is expensive tuition wise. On the bright side, I don't know many people who actually have to pay the full tuition and scholarships are very promising for most students! Our tuition money goes to maintaining the campus. We are currently expanding so most of the money is going towards modernizing some of the older buildings as well and breaking ground on new houses and on campus living.
Tips for prospective students
Come and visit!!!!! I never thought I'd actually want to go to Methodist until I went and visited! It is a beautiful campus fully equipped with a golf course, fountain, and beautiful landscaping. The best advice I can offer is to simply go and take a tour of the school and see first hand what it is like. I loved the school as soon as I set foot on campus!
Great for these types of students
Professional Golf Management students. We are the top PGM school in the Nation. Also, Biology students. We have brand new facilities as well as the Physician Assistant school that has just expanded and the Nursing Program opened this year.
