"Overall, I was satisfied with my time at Newman University. I met a wide variety of people and most of them will be life long friends. The professors are outstanding especially in the science department. If you were not able to meet with a professor during their office hours, they were always an email away. The class sizes are an added bonus because everyone knows who you are including your professors. The small, intimate class sizes meant for a better learning experience for everyone. If I had a chance to go back and do it all over again, I would always choose Newman, The memories made along with the experiences are ones I will never forget. Newman is a great place to get an education."

"I obtained my degree from Newman University. Specifically, a Masters in Social Work. Newman University is located in Wichita, Kansas and they offered a distance program in Colorado Springs, where I live. In Colorado Springs, there are not many options to obtain a Social Work degree. One school was 2 hour drive away while another school was only available every 2 years. Newman definitely is friendly to the working student and made it possible to get a Masters in the field that I love. In addition, the teachers were excellent as well as the staff. Because the distance program is relatively small, the classroom and school feels incredibly comfortable and some of my classmates have turned out to be lifelong friends! In addition, the program was very clinical which in turn, prepared me in passing my licensure exam!"

"Newman University is based in Wichita, Kansas, but I am currently attending their outreach Masters in Social work program in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The school is very small with about 100 MSW students. It has great professors who are encouraging and supportive, and with small class sizes the program feels more like a family than a school. I am enrolled in the part-time program which will take 4 years in total to complete. The classes are on evenings and weekends to help accommodate those like myself who are working full time. Newman University continues to help me feel motivated to realize my goal of becoming a social worker."

"I came to Newman due to the medical school and graduate medical professional school acceptance rates. I was unbelievably impressed with the staff and faculty. Not even just the science faculty but the faculty as a whole. The teachers treat you as peers and I built relationships that will last well beyond my time at Newman. The quality of my education I believe truly helped my success in Physical Therapy school, not only in the classroom but in building relationships with my teachers while here. I think the Newman studies program can be a huge component of creating the well-rounded human that the school offers, however it is still in it's early phases. 2 of my 4 classes I still use material from daily. The other 2 I did not get much out of and do not use in my daily life. I think as they continue to improve the Newman Studies Program, they will continue to exceed expectations in academic success. However, when I started at Newman, students had the opportunity to stack scholarships which is now not allowed. This is forcing some students to go elsewhere as they cannot afford the private school education prices when they are not allowed to maximize their scholarship opportunities."

"This graduate program is focused around providing opportunities for non-traditional students who are unable to attend class mid day or for long periods of time. Classes are at night after work allowing me to work full time and still attend classes. Staff are incredibly easy to contact and receive assistance. Support staff at the school are also very friendly and knowledgeable."
