Friends University is fantastic! I transferred to this University and have not regretted it. The student body and professors are so friendly and welcoming. I am truly blessed to be receiving my undergraduate at such a spectacular place!

What makes my school unique is that it makes it possible for others that can not live on campus, they help organize a program with a college near to home to so that they are available to anyone interested in a certain field. Also, they do not charge the same tuition and fees to those that are outreach students, such as a person like myself.
