"Could not recommend Taylor University more! The quality of education and quality of discipleship and Christian community was off the charts! I was so well prepared for my career both theoretically and practically, and more importantly, my life as a healthy adult able to think independently and be a positive part of our world. The social work department in particular offers an outstanding academic program. I was much more prepared for graduate school than many of my peers, but I was also prepared for the realities of social work practice. I still think often of things my professors there taught me, moreso than I do my professors from graduate school. My professors also really helped me grow and develop personally and spiritually. The campus life at Taylor is great! You'd think that, being in a small town with little around but corn fields, things would be boring. But they are anything but boring! I had such a great time participating in dorm and campus activities, and had such great relationships with the women on my floor. Furthermore, beyond having lots of fun together, we had (and still have, 20 years later) such deep spiritual relationships. Those are the women who still speak truth into my life and who will walk through anything with me, and I am SO grateful that God led me to Taylor!"

"I absolutely loved my Taylor University undergraduate experience from 2014-2018. I grew in every area of my life--Spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially. I also played baseball at TU, which was a transformational experience. I learned time management, discipline, and leadership qualities that I will carry with me for the rest of my life. Academically, I loved having small classes (less than 25) and valued having professors who truly cared about my educational experience. Physically, Taylor University has top-notch athletic programs that compete on a high level every year. In Baseball, we went to the NAIA National Championships two out of my four years as a player. My Junior year, we were granted the prestigious opportunity to host the National Tournament for the first time in program history. Spiritually, I valued having non-mandatory chapel three times per week. Although it was not mandatory, a significant portion of students went every week, showing that students were really intentional about growing in their faith. The chapel speakers were top notch and Jon Kavanaugh, the campus pastor, does a great job bringing in speakers from all avenues that both challenged and motivated our personal faith walk. Ultimately, I would not change a thing about my undergraduate experience at Taylor University and truly hope my kids decide to go there a long time from now."

"Taylor University is a school with a quality community of support, a deep passion for the sharing the word of the Lord and ensuring that students are able to connect high-quality professionalism with their faith in whichever program they go through. In the education program in specific, the staff are incredibly supportive. Classes are intensely practical and having taught for 6 years, I still refer back to things I learned in my undergraduate degree. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity I had to go through this program at Taylor University."

"I loved attending Taylor University Fort Wayne. My professors were professionals in their field who were dedicated to helping students reach their potential and achieve their goals. There was a wonderful sense of camaraderie on campus, and most students were actively involved in giving back to the community. The classes I took were insightful and prepared me for ministry work."

"The small student body paired with very capable professors made for a growing experience that, in retrospect, was worth more than the tuition. Taylor ranks high among baccalaureate colleges for good reason."

"Taylor is an excellent academic school nestled in rural East Central Indiana. Taylor has about 2,000 enrollment so the class size is small and very personal. The small student to teacher ratio allows the classes to be hands-on with cutting edge technology. Taylor has a tight knit community that feels like family. However, if corn field make you anxious, you might have a panic attack. Overall, I am very happy with my experience."

"I feel very prepared for exactly what I am suppose to be, student development. The guaranteed assistantship plus rigorous academic workload is proving to be a tough challenge. However the support of my assistantship supervisors and accessibility of my professors has proved to be extremely helpful. It is also great to see that the professors in my department are very well connected through Christian higher education (where I aim to work) where Taylor U. also has an excellent reputation. Unfortunately the program provides no financial assistance. Is not reputable within public higher education."
