"Madonna is a quaint campus nestled in Livonia, Michigan. Their small class sizes and wide variety of course offerings was a huge bonus for me as I pursued my teaching degree. It was wonderful to have professors who actually knew me and worked with me to improve my skills and abilities. I highly, highly recommend Madonna University to others."

"The social work program is fabulous. Madonna has great instructors that are highly educated and can teach you the knowledge one needs for social work. There will be presentations in every class you take. You will have to carry fifteen credits including your Intern, so the work is heavy. The Majority of students in the program are females. This is a Catholic school, very high on tuition. Social Work program usually has 12 to 15 students per class. Majority of the social work classes are in the even time, from 7-10 at night. Late hours for the library The majority of the instructors are fair graders Overall the program prepared me for a higher paid career by offering classes such as Mental Assessment, Aging, and many electives to choose from. I think Madonna needs a part two for Mental Assessment or an advanced class in Mental Assessment, Instead of an advanced class in aging, which is not necessary. THE CAMPUS IS NICE AND SAFE."

"The thing I love about Madonna university is it's seamless and shameless infusion of Christian humanist philosophy and principals. The campus and class sizes are small enough so you will never feel overwhelmed by being just another cog in the wheel. All of the faculty and staff share the same heart for education and students. I was my experience one semester that one janitor whom I happened to pass on a certain day of the week would always asks about the class I was going to and what I was learning. For a private University, Madonna is relatively competitive and the course options are fantastic. because of the community outreach the University ahs been so long involved in, many disadvantaged and handicapped groups find their way on campus and students are taught whom they must truly serve outside of their education, a lesson I cherish deeply. Overall Madonna is concerned about your education, but more than any other higher institution I have attended, they are concerned about your character."

"Small, private, Catholic University. Smaller class sizes made for better relationships with instructors and fellow students. While it is a Catholic university, there is a very inclusive atmosphere, and I didn't feel like an outsider as a non-Catholic. There were a lot of students and instructors from different faith and ethnic backgrounds. Very good supplemental instruction and tutoring programs for math and science classes. It would have been nice to see more student groups and activities."

"The Clinical Psychology graduate program is challenging and has been a great learning experience. There is a heavy workload that involves commitment, critical thinking, and problem solving. This is a very competitive program taking only 13 students a year. The pro is that there is more interaction between students and teachers offering a better learning experience. This program also included a 1-year Practicum experience which helps accumulate the clinical hours needed to get a temporary limited license in the state of Michigan."

"The Hospice and Palliative Studies program was vital to the development of an individual who, prior to stating the course, was not ready to help people in the most professional way. The courses offered multiple examples and case studies of the death and dying process as well as grief and bereavement. The only criticism I have for this program is that it is thesis based and not clinical."

"At first glance, most students see Madonna University as being strictly Catholic, but this couldn't be further from the truth. While the courses are based in Franciscan values, there is no attempt by faculty or students to force their faith on you. In fact, Madonna University has many students enrolled that are not Catholic. While you will see a crucifix in the classroom, the environment is very open and friendly and the professors are very approachable. The courses are challenging, but in a good way. Each course builds off the last to make you a well rounded professional in your field. Also, the courses can be on campus, online, or a hybrid of the two. I had one class that was a hybrid that met every other week! This greatly helped with the expenses in traveling from my home to campus."

"Pros: I'm learning many valuable skills as well as gaining hands-on experience so I'll be properly prepared for my future career. The faculty and staff are always there to lend support and extra time. Cons: Sometimes I wish I had more control of my schedule."
