Am learning a lot
Reinhardt University is home to those who seek knowledge. The classes, well most of the classes, challenge one to obtain such an understanding and challenge all to do well in life. I have yet to have a terrible experience in any of my classes. Really all I can say is: If you wish to have a higher education, to learn from those who care about your learning experience, then please look at Reinhardt. If you want to be invisible, this is not the school for you.
Am enjoying being here
I love this school. There are so many opportunities to get involved with student life. During the beginning week, each semester, there are multiple student activities such as: Paint wrestling, building bird houses, mechanical bull rides, etc. A personal favourite would be the Big Red Chair Pictures. So, if you're looking for a school that will challenge you, but allow you to be yourself, look no further.
Bang for the buck
Although I wish I could give Reinhardt five stars for having more bang for its buck, the statement would be false. There are plenty of activities that go on around campus, but the schools Financial Aid department tends to lose information. This basically comes down to you either:
A. Re-doing your financial aid or
B. Sitting down with the Business office to figure out what went wrong.

Other than those small factors, the school has everything and is AMAZING!
Tips for prospective students
A tip for the incoming students would be DO NOT be fooled by the cafeteria food. Your orientation food will be okay. The food will get progressively worse throughout the semester, but you eventually get used to it and it becomes less of an issue. You actually come to miss it over the long breaks i.e. Christmas and Summer break.

Another tip would be to ask the upperclassmen for their textbooks. It generally won't happen your first semester in because, hey, you're new. But, generally by the second semester you know more people and can receive their books. Sometimes you even get to keep them.

Oh, and if you're a Music Major, don't freak. You'll get used to the load within the second semester. I'll see you often.
Great for these types of students
As the logo for my incoming year states Reinhardt College: The way college should be, Reinhardt holds its students with the utmost of care and undivided attention. As a student you should dedicate yourself to your studies, but at the same time take it easy and relax a little.

All of the professors are willing to assist their students in any way possible. They are also very friendly, and since this is a small school the class sizes allow the professors the chance to help out students individually while allowing them to get to know them as well making it much easier to understand difficult subjects.
Am enjoying being here
Everyone I have met at Reinhardt is really nice and you get a chance to get to know everyone because of the small town feel where everyone seems to know everyone as well as the various clubs you have the chance to join to help round out your college experience. Though the campus is located in a small town there are several shopping centers that are only ten minutes down the road for anything you need including, a Target and Wal Mart.
Bang for the buck
I have yet to have a negative experience at Reinhardt. The campus is really beautiful and the staff are really friendly.
Tips for prospective students
It would be a great idea to tour the campus before deciding if this is the right college for you, everyone is different and wants different things from their college experience. It can make the world of difference if you get an idea of what to expect if you were to attend Reinhardt in the future. I would also suggest making sure the school has any degree programs you may be interested in.
Great for these types of students
Reinhardt is a great choice for students who wish to be known by their professors and have chances to ask them questions about the classes. This college is also a good choice for people who want to be on a beautiful campus that is away from busy city-life and Reinhardt is known for its picturesque campus which looks especially nice in the spring and fall.

You will get out of Reinhardt University exactly what you put into it. There are plenty of sports, clubs, and campus activities to keep you entertained. The class sizes are generally small, about 20 people on average, which provides a much better learning experience.
Tips for prospective students
Apply for as many scholarships as you possibly can. This school is definitely on the expensive side, but very well worth it.
Academic Rigor
As long as you stay on top of reading your textbooks and completing assigned tasks, you will be fine; however, like any college experience, things can get overwhelming. I have never had a teacher say they would not give me help outside of class. Teachers will tell you their office hours, during which you can stop by to get help or schedule for a different time. The Center for Student Success (CSS) is another wonderful tool to help out a struggling student.
Dorm Life
While I do not personally live on campus, I have visited many of my friends' dorms. The cheapest dorms have a communal bathroom, so if that's not your thing, you'll want to pay a little extra for your own private bathroom.
Food and Dining
The food is very above average.
Great for these types of students
Students who love small classes will love RU.

Am learning a lot
At Reinhardt College I am learning a lot because my classes are small. The class sizes are about 25 people for general core classes. I am also making many friends because of the small campus.
Am enjoying being here
I like Reinhardt because it is very pretty, I have small classes, and I am on the soccer team. The campus is very pretty year round. The small classes make it so that the teachers know your name and you get the help that you need. Being on the soccer team makes it so that I have many friends and everyone on all the sports teams get along and support each other, including the rest of the student body.
Bang for the buck
Reinhardt is the school for you if you like to be involved, know everyone, or want a small student body. There are many clubs for you to join and sporting event to go to. Also there are stores such as Walmart, Khols, Target, GameShop, Dicks, Tjmax, Ross, and many other places to shop just 10 minutes away. Also, there is a large mall about 30 minutes away along with Kenessaw University.
Tips for prospective students
Come and check out the campus before you make your final decision. You also need to make sure you want to go to a small school.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for those students who like small classes, those who like for their teacher to know them, for those athletes who want to stand out, and for those who want to be involved with different clubs and organizations.
