"Most of the coursework for the Ed.D program is laughable at best. The professors are mixed, with some being decent and some being terrible. The expectations of the program are uneven and unfair. I know some people from my cohort who paid other cohort members to write their dissertations, cheated and were allowed to finish the program, fail a class and not dropped from the program, defend with no comments from their readers or advisers on anything past chapter one of their dissertation. Some people had almost no oversight over their dissertation process, while others had to go through rigorous revisions and oversight process. The issue is that a lot of the students and professors know the program is bad, but it is in everyone's best interest to go with the flow. No student wants to admit the program they got their doctorate from is a joke. No professors wants to fess up to teaching in a degree mill. The school has removed all of the requirements for entrance into the program as well. What kind of graduate program does not require GRE or MAT scores? The bottom line is that the school has gotten greedy. The graduate programs are a huge source of income, and so it is in their best interest to keep as many students enrolled in the program as possible."

"I have recently completed a bachelor degree at TNU. It is indeed a great university where everyone cares about every students success. However, there is only one professor who is very arrogant, and it seems that he has some mental issues. Dr. B. will never answer a question when he is asked and instead he will ask for a volunteer in the class to answer the question asked by another student. I did a google search on him and I was unable to find a single article ever published by him. He claims to have written a book on leadership, but I could not find that book. I asked the librarian at the university if she could find me the book and even she could not find it at the library. I did want to continue with my graduate studies at TNU but once I found out that Dr. B. will teach a couple of classes on leadership and organizational behavior, I decided not to continue with my graduate studies at TNU. When I discussed my concerns about Dr. B. with a senior administrative staff, the reply I got was that I was not the first person complaining about Dr. B.. I was told that almost every term there are students complaining about him and according to that person a few years ago one entire class petitioned the dean to remove him from their class and the dean had no choice but to remove B. from teaching that particular class."

"One of the main reason I chose to go into the Psychology field is to help others with mental health issues. I grew up in a rough place were often we were told that we don't cry or tough up. I know now that holding in emotions is not healthy and can do more harm than good. At Trevecca I learn value lessons in and out of the classroom. My professors challenge me to to think outside of the box and knowing the world isn't about you but, how can you help your community around you? We know what hate looks like but,what about love? I currently work a drug rehab for teens I love because I can see the impact that I'm making on a daily basis."

"Trevecca Nazarene University's Masters Program in Counseling is the best program that I know. The staff are caring, professional and knowledgeable of the material that is being taught through the program. This program prepared me to take the National Counselor's exam, which is one of the tests required to become a licensed professional counselor. I would recommend this program to anyone who is interested in becoming a counseling professional."

"Trevecca was an amazing school to learn more about counseling and to get connections within the field. The professors were nothing but helpful and wanted to see me exceed. They were available to help and were very flexible with their hours. I was able to work full time and attend class."

"The MBA program at Trevecca is very strenuous, however valuable. I know that what I am learning will help me become more valuable and competitive in the business world. The professors are very knowledgeable, and always willing to help. There is large diversity within the program. Several different races, backgrounds, and age groups are represented, which adds to the uniqueness of the program. A large benefit of the program is having night classes to accommodate students that also work full time such as myself. The only downside to the program would be that being a private university, the grad school tuition is quite expensive."

"I enjoyed my graduate program. The instructors are all former teachers who were more than happy to share their teaching experiences both good and bad. I love that they provided realistic expectations for new teachers. All the administrative staff are hands on and attempt to know you personally. They are a small school and that is also a plus. A small school can provide more individual attention. Trevecca provided access to all the latest technology such as SMART boards and ELMO's. They also provided resources for teachers who may not have the privilege of working in a school system that can provide the updated technology and tools for teaching. I love my program and I would recommend it to anyone who works a full time job and are not able to take classes during the weekdays. The only con I have is that I had to take Saturday classes that run 8 am to 4 pm. We were given several breaks during that time period including a lunch break."

"Trevecca Nazarene's MAT program has been perfect for a working professional like myself. It is built to accommodate a full-time work schedule while still accomplishing the INTASC standards. Even better has been their lineup of professors -- a cadre of prinicpals and district administrators currently working in private and public school systems across the Middle Tennessee area. And with a condensed schedule, the workload is laser focused into meaningful papers and projects."

"A positive aspect of the MBA program at Trevecca is the school's small size, which allows for professors to be available when extra help is needed. Another pro is the schedule. The program consists of Tuesday night classes from 6-10 so it doesn't interfere with my work schedule. Negatives include the high tuition of a private institution, heavy work load and additional group meetings and projects outside of class - things that should be expected in a graduate program, however!"
