Overall.. Wish I transferred out.Quite BrightBiology
Overall.. Wish I transferred out. Professors are cool and caring, but the administration in charge of Study Service Term (SST) are extremely apathetic to student concerns. Tom Meyers.. where do I begin, I have no idea what his job is. I guess he travels around the world to find new places for SST. He is associate academic dean, I came to talk to him twice, after the first time I filled out two applications to transfer. After the second I decided he is a complete dick! I hope you read this review Tom Meyers!!! I only stayed due to financial reasons. This is a typical liberal/mennonite school that loves diversity and encourages free speech only if they agree with what you have to say. Students bring up political issues and suggest no solutions. TL/DR: Profs are awesome, administration sucks.

Question
If you are not Mennonite and/or come fromQuite BrightNursing
If you are not Mennonite and/or come from a family of alumni you are of little value on this campus. While there are a few great profs, there are also a few very arrogant profs that somehow have a great deal of power over the department and director. There is clearly an image that they want to keep, fresh out of high school, living on campus, Mennonite, and obedient without question. If you fall outside of those parameters you will be very easily targeted and dismissed. Targeted individuals then go on to be very successful at rival colleges...its ridiculous.

Question
I was never sure what the purpose ofBrightNursing
I was never sure what the purpose of the nursing department was. It didn't seem to be to prepare us to become nurses, because many failed their NCLEX exams on the first and second tries. It felt like they just wanted to keep us in the program to keep the enrollment up at the school. Goshen is a dying school, but the nursing department has a large enrollment. Our tuition probably keeps the rest of the school alive. I am not mennonite and that is a problem for anyone on the campus who is not mennonite.There are so many good nursing schools in Indiana that I would not recommend that anyone come to Goshen and waste their time and money on a school where you are not really valued or where you cannot learn enough to pass the NCLEX exam.
