4 College Freshman

Academics: The college offers a night and weekend program for nursing students. This option is great for considering I work full time, and have a one year old. I don't think I would be able to become a nurse with out the option. Having to support my family I have to work full time.

4 College Freshman

Academics: They are in the process of building a new health science building which looks fantastic. I have not yet made it into the program, but they are highly rated in the country.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The courses offered are fantastic. However I am dissatisfied with the availability of times offered, but is expected as it is a small school.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a nursing major is tough but rewarding. There is always a learning opportunity taking place. There seems to always be an assignment, test, or project due.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The registration process is easy. There is always someone willing to help with questions and concerns.

Maryville prides itself on its academics. Rest assured—if you need a challenge, you’ll get the extra motivation at Maryville University. The workload is solely dependent on the teachers; students won't really have an idea until they start classes and become familiar with a teacher's requirements. A few teachers may give a ton of reading assignments or assign a lot of essays and others only grade by tests. Any student in a college environment should expect and prepare for anything. At the beginning of your college career, the workload may not be as much because you're just starting out with your general education classes. However, if you enroll in one of the harder majors such as nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, etc., your workload is going to be on the heavier side.

Maryville offers many resources, such as the Academic Success Center, located in the University Library, to make sure students are keeping with their academics. The center has tutoring, a writing center, and a number of other services. The teachers are very friendly and adamant about helping you exceed your goals and take the time to get to know you and your needs. The students who tutor are very skilled in their subjects and carefully strategize an easier method for their students to understand topics better. If you ever need any extra help on a subject, they will be more than willing to help you.
