their are the best.
OLUWATOSIN EMMANUEL from VINCENNES, IN
I personally would rate Vincennes an eight out of a ten on a ten point scale. It is a very small school so it allows you to get to know a lot of people. The professors are also pretty awesome.
Bailey Petty from Alexandria, IN
vincennes is a very friendly challenging university. the teachers are very helpful. you can find a lot to do around campus.
Nathaniel from Rossville, IN
i give them five stars for their teachers, advisers, and councilors, but only four stars with there financial aid office. they are positive and accommodating towards people that have difference goals and live different life styles. the only quarrel i have had is how the financial aid office isn't as up front with disbursements dates (unless you specifically ask or a week or two before they will have fliers in their office about it) and problems so you have to seek them out a lot to just get a question answered or to fix a problem.
Jessica from Newberry, IN
They are a great school, with one on one teacher assistance. I love it being local and to have classes that work around my busy life. The smaller classes make it easier to interact with the professor and other students. All questions I have had, were answered professionally from the administration staff. I just love it.
