I highly advice anyone reading this to notBrightBiology
I highly advice anyone reading this to not come to this school. I have never had problems with being bullied or making friends in high school but when I came here I have been bullied, talked about, and been treated like dirt. This school is not worth $31,000+ because unless you are interested in ministry, the coursework will not help you at all and it does not prepare you for the real world.One more thing; they have very strict rules here and they do not give a person the opportunity to set your own boundaries and have limits. I highly advise people not to attend here or at least do not stay on campus.

I transferred in as a sophmore.Quite BrightSocial Work
I transferred in as a sophmore. I want to first give some advice on being a transfer. Be very careful about what major and minor you are picking for example. Several people I know personally had to drop their minor because the admission rep did not tell them the classes would be offered at the same time for their major and minor. I ended up having to drop my minor because of this. Also as a transfer they do not tell you about many activities you can be involved in on campus and that there are certain requirements for it. All transfers I know got their classes messed up due to poor advising.

The social work program is one of the largest programs on campus. Yet there are only 3 professors, which are all great. But three professors leaves you with limited resources there will be a certain class for social work that will only be offered in the fall at one time with no other options. Some may like this but others who want to be able to have a minor may not.The school is overall good. The problem is they have limited resources. I wanted to go to a small christian schhol, but once I got here I realized I had limited resources. Its hard to join groups and to get on campus jobs, and overall going to a big school would be a better choice, because they can offer you more resources and have a better education.

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.
