SAU can be a great place to learnQuite BrightCommunications
SAU can be a great place to learn and to grow both academically and spiritually. Unfortunately, the students are very cliquey so if you feel the need to conform and fit in perfectly than you might have a little trouble. The rules really are not that bad considering that when you sign up you sign a contract agreeing to abide by their rules. The cool thing is you don't have to be Christian to go here but you do have to respect the people who are. The faculty are the best and I have only encountered a few who do not agree with me. Overall, it is a personal choice. If I had to choose again this wouldnt be my choice but that is because of the students. The education is worth it, but the hypocritical ways of a lot of the students give SAU a bad rep.

Pros: no hipsters, ghetto kids, or frat boysBrightEducation
Pros: no hipsters, ghetto kids, or frat boys to be seen,
Cons: if you want to see what it would be like had the ori won in stargate go here. Segregation of guys and girls was harsh.Suggestions: dont follow ur love interest here. Also petition to add "grey warden" to ROTC programs cause it would bee cool

I would suggest not going to this school.AverageSocial Work
I would suggest not going to this school.
Spring Arbor University is located in a very small town. The nearest city, Jackson, is about 10 miles away. Jackson is a poverty-stricken city which means there are very few jobs available; so if you plan on working while attending this school, you wont be too happy. This school is just like a community college, the classes are no more difficult, but it costs waaaay more!

Last: Spring Arbor University is a very small campus, it feels like a high school; there are a lot of rumors and gossip around. It also has a lot of ridiculous rules & regulations & people get fined for almost anything. I understand this is a Christian campus, but we are adults, we should be allowed to be responsible for ourselves without being told what to do, like we're in jr.high.

If you are fine with: a small campus, nothing to do, very conservative & sheltered people, and ridiculous regulations; this is the school for you! =] There are some very friendly people & professors. The lunch ladies are also very nice; always having something encouraging to say.
