I immediately felt at home there. Making friends and becoming close to the professors and staff was very easy. The student body is very supportive and encouraging when it comes to academics. I always know that I can go to another student or professor, etc whenever I have an issue or question about anything. I am greatly enjoying my experience.

I love that my professors understand my athletic responsibilities and take the time to accommodate my schedule when my sport is in season.

Cumberland University has been wonderful to me so far. I enjoy the small class sizes and access to tutors and professors. I believe that Cumberland is the best school that will help me achieve my dream of becoming a nurse, and I plan to continue with my Masters there after I graduate.
