I attended SAU for completion of my BSN

Oct 04 2008Nursing
I attended SAU for completion of my BSN degree (bachelors in nursing). I was already an RN for many years and finally took the plunge and went back to school. I cannot say enough good things about the program. The faculty were behind the students 100%. I grew as a nurse and a person through this program. Going to Spring Arbor University was one of the best decisions I ever made.

Over priced, over rated

Jun 10 2014History/Histories (art history/etc.)
Over priced, over rated. The faculty an administration have the idea that if you don't tow the line and make them and their "school" look good, then you don't deserve to succeed. Everything you get here you can get elsewhere for half the cost or less. Their financial aid is a joke. Their support system for low to middle income families sending their students to this "school" is non existent. You are highly likely to either drop out or graduate with a massive amount of debt, all because they want a few extra dollars in their pocket. They could care less about your success or the values they claim to uphold. There is nothing good about what they do to their students financially. I graduated unprepared and unqualified for a working world but with such a massive debt that I had no other choice then to take available work and with the experience best described by saying "if you can make a buck off someone, use their faith to get every penny you can, while you can."

Spring Arbor University is a academically strong school

May 10 2008Religion/Religious
Spring Arbor University is a academically strong school. You learn a lot in one semester of course this means papers and reading.

The campus student body and staff is growing rapidly. Several new buildings have been built in the last few years.

Conservitive school but more flexible that most. There are open hours in which the opposite sex can be in eachothers rooms. It is a Weslyan/Free Methodist school and Wesleyanism is dominant but teachers dont shoot down differring ideas they welcome and encourage them in the class room.

Spring Arbor is a really small town with not much in it. The largest city is Jackson which is about 10 mins away. It is a pretty depressed area because of Michigans poor economy but it still offers, theaters, bowling, indoor golf, down town shopping, malls, resturaunts, etc. It is also 30 mins away from Lansiing, Ann Arbor, and Battle

Creek.
Campus safety is rather pathetic- Students with flashlights but we dont have too much to worry about eihter.

Teachers know student personally. They take the time to mentor them, eat lunch with them and answer any questions.

Student life is great. Bands kutless, sanctus real, starfield, bethany dillon have all performed on campus.

SAU is growing more popular all the time and has the potential to become a major player in Christian schools.
