4 College Freshman

Diversity: As a private university, there are not as much diversity as one probably sees at other schools. However, there are a handful of international students that are thriving and loving Corban. I have many friends that have different beliefs, political views, and economic backgrounds than I do. They are no less accepted than I am, and visa versa.

Off-Campus Housing: I have many friends that live off campus, and are able to save money while still being very involved with the Corban community.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. I am able to leave my laptop sitting out in a study room, grab coffee/food/go to the bathroom, and it will still be there. I never lock my dorm room. Campus safety is also present and there to help with anything. Although Corban is near a prison, it has never created a problem or made me feel unsafe.

Drug Safety: Athletes experience the most pressure. I know people that drink, but I do not know of people doing drugs on campus. Because of the tight-knit community, I think it would be very difficult to get away with.

Off-Campus Dining: It is average. Nothing special about it.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I personally have not experienced the "nightlife", so I am unable to answer.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school genuinely cares for its students and works hard to give as much aid as they can.

Local Atmosphere: Salem as a city lacks its own character or identity, but there are plenty of programs, shopping and recreation to keep students busy.

4 College Freshman

Academics: As a Health Science major, I have one of the harder workloads compared to students in other majors. It is a young program, so facilities are not the best. However, the science department is working to change that. The unique aspect of the department i am in is the care that the professors have for the students. Every professor is willing to answer questions, and help make us successful when applying to graduate programs.

3 College Freshman

Computers: This year I haven't experienced problems with the computers or printing in the labs.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had internship experience yet, although I plan to do so. The professors help students find internships, and are very successful. I do not have any concerns.

5 College Freshman

Majors: My career goal is to be a nurse. In order to pursue this, I need to transfer to a different school. However, I am so thankful that I have had two years at Corban University. The professors in the science department are excellent and I feel prepared as I move into a nursing program.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Most students take the school's standings seriously. I have never been around drinking in the dorms, partying, drugs, or even males being in girl halls after hours. I appreciate that students are responsible and respectful of the school's rules. This promotes a great environment to focus on our studies and have healthy friendships.

Campus Housing: I have loved living on campus. What I appreciate most is the community and friendships I have built. People are respectful, kind, and genuinely enjoy each other. When there is conflict, the RA's do an excellent job resolving those situations. The dorm I live in is very new and kept very clean.

Campus Dining: This year, dining has been much better. I appreciate there has been a larger variety of food choices, and an effort to provide healthy food. Meal dollars can be spent at the coffee shop or pod, which is great when working in the library or meeting friends for coffee.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off-campus living is good and allows for freedom. The only problem is the hassle of finding roommates. We do have a board with off-campus options and requests for roommates, but something more accessible would be preferred.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into both the music and business programs at Corban was a smooth process. There are no irregularities about the admissions process. One thing I wish the music program would have done would be to send out some kind of reminder about the audition deadline. I almost missed the audition deadline, but I happened to look at the website before it closed. Applying for college consists of endless applications and deadlines, so a reminder about a very important one would be helpful for potential music students.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I love many things about the music program at Corban. I have learned a lot, and there are usually enough practice rooms for students. I do not like some of the faculty though. Unfortunately they make the experience less enjoyable than it otherwise could have been.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a music major is very unique from all the other majors because in a sense we are like a big family. Everyone knows each other and we encourage one another to keep on keeping on when things get hard, as the process of acquiring a music degree will always be a challenge. The reason I did not give this 5 stars is because some of the music faculty are not very helpful or encouraging.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I really like the quality of the education offered at Corban. The professors know what they are talking about, and the workload is okay.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Corban is good at having a non-tolerant alcohol and drug policy. I am nervous however as this will probably change next year because more power is being given to students who may or may not know what's best for them.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Safety is taken seriously by Campus Safety. However Corban is a big campus and there are many places that are unlit and where one could feel unsafe. Perhaps two security officers instead of one at night would be a good idea.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off-campus dining options are good. There are many places around Salem to eat out with friends and not completely empty one's pocket book.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I loved living in the dorms. The community is like none other one will ever experience in their lifetime. However, I was forced to move off campus soon after because it is so expensive to stay in the dorms. This was a big inconvenience for me and was sad because I really liked living in the dorms. I still wished I lived there...

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Salem is a rather small city, but if students want to go shopping or out to eat there are always new places to try. There are usually not very many area attractions or recreation available, however.
