Midland University has a small-town friendliness combined with big-city academics that gives its students the best of both worlds. The campus is beautiful and conducive to walking or biking to classes; it also has plenty of parking for commuting students and those who live in the dorms. Midland University is a vibrant centerpiece of its community and deserves to be investigated by students around the world.
Tips for prospective students
Be aggressive and diligent in pursuing scholarships, ask questions if something is not clear. Do not be afraid to ask a professor or advisor for help, I have yet to meet an unhelpful faculty or staff member! Midland University wants to make YOUR dreams come true; if they don't have the exact major you are looking for, ask about designing your own or creating a customized combination of majors.
Academic Rigor
All of my professors have been clear in their expectations, are willing to help with difficult concepts, and open to new ideas.
Food and Dining
The times I have eaten at the cafeteria the food was good, and with an all-you-can eat policy every meal is worth every penny you pay for it.
What to do for fun
There is always something interesting happening on campus. From sports events to art shows to guest speakers to talent shows, contests, and intramural sports there is something for everyone to do. Fremont has plenty of good restaurants, lakes, bowling alleys, a water park, and one of the largest YMCA's around. All this and Fremont is only about 30 minutes from downtown Omaha as well!
Bang for the buck
While Midland University may have the typically more expensive tuition, MU is really good about providing financial support. The academics, not to mention the networking opportunities, give you 101 pennies for every dollar you spend!
Campus Safety
I have an evening class that doesn't end until 9pm or later, and I feel perfectly safe walking half-way across campus to my car. Fremont in general is a safe town, and the campus is even more so.

I really enjoy that it is a small campus. All the professors are kind and understanding. It feels like we're one big, happy family.
Tips for prospective students
Make friends in the apartments so you can do your laundry for free. Take advantage of the free membership to the YMCA.
Academic Rigor
Professors are always pushing you to do your best and they expect a lot from you. I enjoy that classes are small and most professors know you by your first name.
Dorm Life
The dorms could use some updating like air conditioning and a little modernization.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria is alright. I love the dessert options, they never let me down.
What to do for fun
Fremont has a small mall that has a movie theater. You can go bowling. I really just enjoy hanging out with my friends in the dorms or apartments.
Great for these types of students
Anyone who enjoys knowing almost everyone. A small campus means you see the same people everyday. Fremont itself is not a huge city, but could be considered large to anyone from a small town.
Clubs and Activities
Midland University is doing a great job of updating a lot of the athletic teams. We are now sponsored by Adidas, which is great.
Greek Life
I don't know a lot about this. I know there are a few sororities and fraternities. They do not have houses though.
Campus Safety
I always see campus security around.

I have found Midland University to be a very welcoming campus. Midland offers great opportunities, the class sizes are small, and the teachers are willing to assist students on a one on one basis. With hard work I will be able to receive my BSN in their 4 year Nursing program, and the campus life, professors, admissions, etc are all very much involved in with me achieving success in both academics and athletics.
Tips for prospective students
Look into playing a sport at Midland. I play Womens Lacrosse and love every minute of it. Athletics is huge on campus, so is academics, and being involved in the community. Stay involved on and off campus in a positive manner. Set a goal for your GPA, and use all your resources available. Such as the library, study groups, teachers, tutors etc.
Academic Rigor
Academics is a key factor to your success.
Dorm Life
Dorm life at Midland has created numerous friendships for me, and I enjoy being in the dorms. We have computers, kitchen area, ice machines, laundry etc.
Food and Dining
There is a wide variety of meals offered. We also have daily salad bars, sandwich bars, etc.
What to do for fun
Midland offers Greek Life, outdoor sand volleyball courts, and basketball courts. They hold events on the campus green, and have free bowling nights, you get a free membership at the local YMCA, and are offered student discounts at some local businesses.
Bang for the buck
They offer a wide variety of majors, and minors. Once again the staff here at Midland strives to help you with your success, and are very supportive. Midland is a Lutheran school, and the history behind Midland is unique.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Recently Dana College in Blair, NE closed and Midland took in a lot of their students and staff, and made them feel welcomed. Dana @ Midland.
Great for these types of students
Athletes
Choir
Drama
Religious
Nursing
Criminal Justice
etc.
Greek Life
There are sororities and Fraternities, but they are all involved in the community and campus. The Greek life at Midland is looked up upon.

Security is easy to get ahold of and are always willing to help. Campus is very safe.
