3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: I'm not going to say much because my roommate's mum is in charge of the cafeteria~

3 College Freshman

Majors: Workloads of most/all majors is very high and the amount of time the school thinks you should spend doing schoolwork is horrid.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I personally don't think the school offers any form of internships, and if they do it's extremely hard to get information.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The selection of majors is very limited but some of them are fairly decent.

3 College Freshman

Parking: My roommate and I have made it a point to take pictures of the cars that are parked horribly and post them online. There are that many of them.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most students dress very plainly, because of the irritating dress code. But some students manage to dress nicely despite the code.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's Nebraska, you can get all four seasons in the span of 24 hours.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: They do not allow openly gay/bisexual/other students to enroll in the school and if you're not white they'll try to get you to leave, especially if you're Hispanic and from public school and not of Catholic background.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The majority of the school just focuses on sports and throws everything else aside. Most of the money has gone towards sports. Even $1 million was spent on a poorly designed gym and the work out room is small and mainly taken over by by the baseball players. Their "athletics" classes offer very few choices and most are easy to cheat at, especially if it's an online course.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: If you want your freedom back after classes, definitely get a place off campus, save yourself from the trouble of having your rights stripped from you 24/7.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at the school. There is even a rule against fraternities and soroities.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: If there is any drug safety at the school it's being used to pick on students that have actual prescriptions and not crack down on those using recreational drugs.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I can honestly say that I will never again attend this institution for its actions that don't condone Christian life. It does not prepare students for the outside world nor does it even expose students to the real world. It tries to shelter students and students that came from public schools that have an idea on real life are tearing our hair out with how protective the administration is of the students. The school has some small gems but none worth staying for, maybe for a visit yes but not staying. You could honestly get a good Christian education at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix, Arizona that has said, to me, it prepares its students for the real world. It's more liberal and appears to be with this century and not the Dark Ages.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I gave my review on some rules earlier but one rule I didn't discuss was their "No Dancing" rule. That's right, if you love to dance better go do it somewhere that's not on campus and it's not a campus event. There is no legitimate reason for this rule and there probably never will be. The only time you can really dance on campus is if you're in the musical, but that's pretty much it.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dad had to come into my dorm sometime during the first few months of school to clean mold from my AC/heating unit that the school would not clean and claimed it was dirt and dust. As far as amenities there are small communal showers, one washer and dryer per floor (they are free to use but trying to get it is a pain), one kitchen for the entire student body, one small theatre, a chapel, a cafe/lounge?, and several "hangout" spots. Some of the rules are absolutely ridiculous. One being the infamous No Dancing rule. Another being a dress code that if you're not pretty you can't get away with anything, my roommate got in trouble for a shirt that had a lace back and was told it showed "too much back."

One rule that is really weird is their opposite sex in the hall rule. This rule states that you must ask for permission to have a male/female on your hall and if you do get permission it can only be for 15 minutes, if you need a computer fixed be sure to go to their house. This rule was the bane of my existence. I had my dad on my hall numerous times without permission and no one said a thing. Everyone was cool with it. Now suddenly he comes to clean my sink after a plumbing fiasco that got me sick, twice, someone has their panties in a bunch and I have a letter from the dean of women for that one incident.

Keep this in mind, I'm a Hispanic female.

Another student (a white male that's the son of the dean of men) was caught with marijuana in his dorm room. Wanna know what happened to him? Nothing, no right up, no getting kicked out, not even an arrest. They let that slide.

My previous roommate is also getting harassed by the school for no reason and had her car illegally impounded by the dean of women. Her parents are paying out of pocket to send their daughter here and even donated money to the school (that got used for sports and not bettering the school).

2 College Freshman

Facilities: We don't really have a student center, it's more of an office in which the person in charge of Student Development is hard to find unless you email her. If there is a student center I have not been told about it or its location.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: While Omaha is a nice city with plenty to offer, along with much better schools/universities, I would not be living in the city after I graduate from Metro. I intend to live in Bellevue and the Papillion after graduating.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The school is rather bad when it comes to looking at a student's financial aid history when they claimed they didn't know I got a grant from Metro over the summer, just the summer, until the middle of second semester in which they decided to take my grant away, that pays for a lot of the stuff (granted it's not much) I get. The school also doesn't have a bookstore which you could get your books with financial aid, you have to pay out of pocket for your textbooks that the professors find at a rather steep price, and you may not even use the book!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Omaha is well-known for it's many restaurants but some of them can be pricey. Though, the ones that aren't pricey you are bound to walk away with a stuffed belly. My boyfriend, some friends, and I take to frequenting Spaghetti Works and usually order the endless pasta bowl for it's low price an the fact it has free refills which you can change the pasta, sauce, or both upon your waiter/waitress asking if you'd like a refill! My boyfriend and I have made it a point to eat at Rock Bottom so we can take pictures of us hitting it to say we've "hit rock bottom."

Not that far away is an authentic Spanish restaurant (EspaƱa) and it can get pricey but the food is wonderful and the portions are great! You really will enjoy the experience there!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security around campus, while occasionally visible, doesn't seem to do much. They just seem to be there to pick on a poor soul that has parked in the wrong area. The area of the school is known for crime and a murder happened not that long ago, just seconds away from the school.

The (only) nurse on campus is the most friendly and fun person you'll meet! She can be hard to find at times but when you find her you can ensure you'll feel like your own mother is caring for you when she treats you and gets your prescription filled! (Along with snacks, she has snacks.)

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Being located near/around downtown Omaha it really isn't necessary to have a car to get to the Old Market to hit up a restaurant or one of the many awesome shops the area has, especially in the warmer months, it's just great to go take a nice walk with some friends either to Old Market or the Henry Doorly Zoo, just a couple miles away from the school. If you work off campus it'll be hard to gauge if you need a car or not (I know I do, because it's about 20 minutes away), and in the colder months I'd highly suggest having a car, with snow tires, otherwise you'll freeze your bum off!

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am currently in the Teacher Education program but will change it to Animation/Graphic Design once I transfer back to Metro. The school has all students do a double major, even if you don't want it. The second, not optional, major is Bible and if you follow their "recommended path" then you're in for a ton of work. It's been said that for each class you take you must spend at least one or two hours doing homework or studying. For four classes (or five) you're going to roughly spend eight hours doing schoolwork, if you have homework or studying to do for that class.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors for the most part are wonderful people! I actually do like the majority of the professors I've had. I only really dislike two of them because one of them failed me with no reason and the other is unreliable to ask for missed work or notes. But other than that the professors genuinely do care about your success and are really fun to talk to, some are pretty nerdy but I personally like nerdy people so I feel comfortable in their classes. One of them is even an artist like myself so I feel at home in his class. Registration is very intense because students do have favourite professors and want to get them, it's also a bit tedious because some departments want students in that program to register when all the advisers are available for students. It's slightly convenient but also a bit annoying because some classes you want/need are long filled up by the time you get to register.

3 College Freshman

Computers: If you bring your own computer to campus be sure that it has Windows Vista or above (unless it's a Mac). Because the network supposedly does not support Windows XP. If you want to learn a thing or two about networking be sure to ask one of the students instead of the IT department.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: I'll write it later when I can shorten it.
