"My years at Southern were transformative. The education that I received, I feel, prepared me for what was to come. The only drawback was that I commuted there and so did not get to partake in all that living on campus would have offered. Fantastic and knowledgeable instructors, very challenging, great education."

"This is an excellent school, with an excellent vision, excellent faculty, and excellent programs. This is why there are so many international students like myself who move their families to Louisville just to have the opportunity to study here. Too many pros to name, the only cons are the minimal and delayed feedback on much of the work that is submitted (papers, assignments, etc...). Not for all classes and not from all professors, but certainly by many."

"I do not have many cons about my graduate program. However, there are a couple and they all are centered around affordability. My school is located in the wealthier part of the city in which the apartment complexes that it owns must be able to compete with those owned by people not affiliated with the school. However, for someone who must pay for school and a place to live that can become burdensome and difficult to pay for. My school does offer a 50% discount to those affiliated with its religious convention, however aside from maybe one or two scholarships available to all students, financial aid is lacking. However, those two things concerning money, which are huge for many people, are the only two cons that I have with my school. The pros that I have could be listed for days. My school is academically and unapologetically rigorous but they do a phenomenal job of preparing men and women to go into their desired field. Not only that but the professors are helpful and supportive. They understand that their classes are hard but are willing to meet with students to help them succeed and pass. They are also approachable, often meeting with students for a meal in order to learn more about their students."

"I enjoy the well rounded and theologically sound coursework at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. If, by diversity, someone is looking for people from all different backgrounds, Southern does have a diversity of students and faculty. However, if, by diversity, a person is seeking a plurality of views and convictions, Southern may not be considered diverse. Southern has nurtured and attracted a highly unified faculty and student body."

"The university is very focused on producing theological adept students and thus the work load for the programs is somewhat difficult. However, there been a book that I have been required by a professor that has not been a benefit to read. Overall, the university is the best university of theological education."
