Am learning a lot
I am learning so very much at Tabor and the best part is that it is all so very applicable. The things I learn in communication classes teach me how to interact better with those who cross my path and the things I learn in Bible class strengthen my relationship with God and teach me how to better study His word. It seems that no matter what class I am in I am interested and have a better understanding of how these topics are at work in my own life. However, Tabor is also teaching me a great deal about non-academic things. For instance, for the first time in my life I am truly seeing community at work. It is amazing to be a functional part of the Body of Christ in an environment like Tabor. Although I learn so much in my classes, it is the time spend with friends or time dedicated to extra-curricular activities that are truly educating me about real-life issues.
Am enjoying being here
I absolutely love being at Tabor. Everywhere I go on campus I feel like I am where I am supposed to be. The professors genuinely care about the students, it seems that all students are friendly, and the food is really great as well! The relationships I have build so far at Tabor sharpen me, encourage me, and grow me more than any others I have been in throughout my life. The opportunities offered by Tabor are absolutely enjoyable while giving me a chance to stretch myself and be involved in Ministry.
Bang for the buck
Because Tabor is a small private college, it is quite a bit more pricey than some colleges or universities. Finances have been a struggle for me, but I don't believe that I could pay enough money for the opportunities I have at Tabor and those I will have in the future. Because I believe Tabor is above and beyond the majority of schools, I am willing to do whatever it takes to overcome the financial hurdle and remain where I am.
Tips for prospective students
I think it is really important to visit the campus. By spending a day seeing what you have heard about, you can really know for sure whether Tabor is where you want to attend. Ask any questions you may have. The admissions staff is incredibly friendly and are more than willing to clarify anything for you. Make sure you are well informed so that you can feel more confident about your decisions.
Great for these types of students
Tabor is the place for students who want to have their lives changed and mind's blown. If you are willing to come and be changed, you will be. The power and presence of God is so evident on campus and Tabor is a wonderful place to get real about your relationship with God, friendships, the present, and definitely the future. Although Hillsboro is a small town, it can be a great place for city folk to have a more rural experience.

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot at Tabor College, but while I am learning in the class I'm also learning about life outside of college and how to be a better person when i leave Tabor. College definitely is a time to mature and grow in your thinking as well as responsibility. And while you can learn that at any college I think that Tabor, being a small school, the professors are more invested in there students. So they not only pass on what you need to know for the class they also pass on there life lessons and lessons learned from mistakes. With the small class sizes its easier for them to be invested not only in your education but your life as well and you form bonds with your professors spanning more than teacher student relations but also more mentor roles. And while it is a decidedly Christian college I am also learning to be a better christian and a better person overall.
Am enjoying being here
I am enjoying Tabor College very much. I have made many friends here and many that will carry on from Tabor. I like the small town and small college. You get to know more people at a small college i think. And even though the town is small and there are less attractions, you get to be more creative and find fun and cheap ways to have a good time. Overall its a fun place to go to college.
Bang for the buck
Tabor is a little bit pricier than most colleges. Being a private Christian college its prices are a little higher. But because its a Christian college not only am i learning about the subjects Im taking but I'm also learning how to better my walk with Christ and learning from strong Philosophy and Theological professors. And if that is something that is important to you than i would say that even though its pricier it is still worth it.
Tips for prospective students
Reading is one thing and visiting is another. You can read and read and read about a college but to get a real feel for whether it is a college that would fit you, you should visit. The atmosphere and size and look of a campus can mean a lot when making a decision on a college. So if you're deciding between a few colleges definately visit them and then decide which one seems right for you.

Will learn a lot
Tabor would be a very different environment for me being that I am a city person. I plan to adapt to this new surrounding and learn a lot that I never knew.
Will enjoy being here
When I visited Tabor College everyone treated me like family. I'm sure I will have the time of my life at Tabor.
Bang for the buck
Tabor seems to be a great school. I know Tabor and I both will benefit in great things with me attending.
