shorter university is an amazing school. the class sizes are small, and the professors are very dedicated to your success.
Tips for prospective students
do not feel weary about attending. shorter has a course for the first year so that you are well prepared for your classes, and know how to utilize your time management skills.
Academic Rigor
the courses are challenging, but never too much for a good student to handle. also, be aware that there are other students in the class with you that can provide assistance.
Dorm Life
the dorm which i am in now is amazing. very spacious, and the environment is clean. there is a common area on the second floor, study rooms on every floor, and also a elevator for those who tend to be lazy like me.
Food and Dining
the food is very diverse, and the workers inside the cafeteria are friendly. the workers are of various ethnicities which allow for proper communication with those who don't necessarily speak english.
What to do for fun
they are sports events along with a plethora of events that occur on and off campus to keep students interactive. for instance, we have grocery bingo, midnight breakfast, raffles, aqua massage, bowling, blow up slides,class battles, food trucks with free food, and much more.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
there is myth of a place called the catacombs on campus. with being involved in sos you are given the opportunity to go to the catacombs. this is located under the campus, and are supposedly creepy.
Clubs and Activities
i am currently involved with track and field. i love the team, and the family-like ties which we have. i show up to almost every other sporting event to support the teams, and every event which i have shown up to are very competitive and exciting.
Campus Safety
campus safety is always available for your benefit. i am always locking my keys inside my room, and they are always there to let me in. from personal experience they are all very nice, and always willing to help you.

Shorter Unicersity provides a superb Christian atmosphere which I absolutely love. It is also the perfect size; not too big to where you would get lost, and not too small to where you are constantly meeting new people. At Shorter I feel like I am being challenged both academically and spiritually which will make me a stronger student as well as a stronger Christian.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to attend a school where God is put first, then this is the school for you. You will definitely see yourself grow in faith while fellowshipping with other Christians.
Academic Rigor
The Shorter professors will challenge you, but they are never too busy to help you better understand the areas with which you might be struggling.
Dorm Life
The dorms are not the biggest or the nicest, but I found that if you are truly involved in a sport, club, or any extra curricular activity, you will not be spending much time in your dorm room.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria food is like any school: sometimes you will enjoy what they are serving, and sometimes you won't. They do, however, always have a variety of choices.
What to do for fun
There are so many different activities going on around campus. Whether sports, clubs, and even the occasional concert and play there is always something fun to do.
Clubs and Activities
We have sports, music, theater, sororities and fraternities, and ongoing campus fun.
Greek Life
I am not a part of greek life, but they always have events going on, such as big/little week, crush parties, etc...
Campus Safety
If there are any problems on campus, those who ensure campus are quick to take action.
