Great School and Great Staff. I have gained lifelong experiences by learning how to be on my own and networking with friends and other business owners. This is not for everyone though, if you need more guidance then this will appear tough at first. Plus professors are more open to your own ideas than what they would normally believe in.
This school was a huge disappointment. First, their mission statement states Christian values and beliefs; however, the material and worldview is extremely secular with a negative view towards Christianity in the three classes that I took. I am in my fourth class now. The professors are very unorganized. The quizzes for 3 of my classes had questions on them that weren't even in the material that was being tested. I contacted the professor and he admitted that they were questions from other chapters and asked me to look through the book to see if I could find them. I ended up going on the internet for some. Also, in one class, I would be graded differently for different assignments. It seemed that an assistant may have been helping grade and didn't have the same grading criteria as the professor. I received A's in all my classes, but the time spent was not beneficial to learning and very inconsistent. Because I want a faith based education and want to attend a professional university, I plan to transfer to Liberty University after this class. I do not recommend this school!
This is not a good school to attend...they are very slow about getting things done. When you ask them too, they want something from you. They expect you to get it done right then. In the financial department, they only have one person working on things that need to be done right away and when she decides to take a vacation, she leave for 2 weeks and no one else is there to help. The attitude of the staff is also terrible...I thought it was an Christian school but it is really not....If you can help please decide to look at other schools before you go there.
I had a wonderful educational experience during my time as a student with the University of the Southwest. My professors prepared me quite well for my career.
They are pretty close to just being a diploma mill.
Nothing is learned, little is taught, they will bait and switch courses and costs on you and the staff is completely unprofessional.
