4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Teachers are very helpful and are committed to my education.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is very easy to get an A in almost every course. Teachers frequently give out lots of extra credit and they are mostly lenient with their grading and their deadlines. They are eager to see the student succeed, even if that means making the class so easy it is hard to get a bad grade.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most students are encouraged to attend grad school after attending Graceland. They only offer 2 Bachelors of Sciences degrees and even then most people choose to go on to another school after graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is good for someone who is very social and doesn't mind someone constantly coming into their room. There is an open door policy, so whenever you are in your room your door is supposed to be open to encourage "community and interaction". This is fine for when you aren't doing anything important, but it makes it hard to study and get things done. There are supposed to be quiet hours from 11:30pm to 9:00am but they are rarely enforced and it is not unusual to have people making tons of noise at 3:00am.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: 98% of the students enrolled at this school are involved with some sort of extracurricular activity, and the bulk of that is sports. Sporting events are well-attended, however the facilities could use an upgrade.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes at this school are too easy. Very little studying is needed to pass these classes, which I feel is unhealthy when looking for a school that will prepare you for your future career. The school classifies itself as a Liberal Arts school, and they definitely live up to that label. It felt to me like the school put having fun ahead of doing well in your classes. Extracurriculars are strongly suggested to the point where you feel peer pressured to participate, even if it means that you won't get your homework/studying done. This school felt more like a continuous party than a college.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Our courses here are challenging but help you really learn the material that is needed within the course. The professors are always trying to help if something is not easily understanding for a student. We can easily schedule one on one time with professors to get our work done or even to get help studying for an upcoming exam or test. There are a pretty good variety of courses offered wishing our school for its size. Our class sizes are about 30 students per class on average.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Our school will hold internship fairs at our school once a semester to help students find the right internships for them to enable getting a job faster and easier out of college. Our school does its best to get students out and working in the field that they have been striving for.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our school rarely has any type of safety issues. Our school is in a very small town where everyone knows everyone so we all feel pretty safe here and there are rarely even fights between people. I feel very safe on campus in the day time and even at night.

2 College Junior

Campus Housing: There aren't many dorm options. The boys dorms is only one building and 4 floors while the girls have 2 separate dorm buildings each having 4 floors. Our boys dorms are pretty run down such as the heating or AC and also the carpets in the halls are stained really bad and the halls usually smell too.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love our campus and our small student classes. It helps to give you more one on one time with professors and extra help when needed. The professors are always there to help when needed during hours and even after hours. They strive to so the best of their abilities in helping us pass our classes. Our school is unique because its not too big of a campus so were like a big family. All Graceland University students get along very well and are very helpful with anything that is needed. I honestly wouldn't choose this school again though because I would have rather went and played for a division 1 football team.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our athletics are what makes our school. I am a football player and our program is the biggest program at our school. Our facilities aren't the best but they are reliable enough to use. Our fan support is always good even when the weather isn't quite the best but we still have our fans in the stands ready to cheer us on.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I'm never worried about anything happening to me when I walk alone on campus. It's always well lit and semi-busy whenever I'm out and about. The only things I've had stolen are clothes from the laundry rooms.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I chose Graceland because it was exactly what I was looking for in a school. The major is exactly what I want to do with my life and the people here are absolutely great. They're so friendly and helpful it makes me never want to leave.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Graceland Enactus program, something I am involved in, just started a program to help students connect with alumni to help them along their path toward finding a career outside of school. The faculty also helps a student when they are trying to find an internship/career. Since the town is so small, there aren't that many employers that come to Graceland, but we make up for it through Enactus when we put on events and get speakers to come in and provide students with valuable life information to help them. Also, Des Moines is only an hour away and Kansas City is two hours, so we're not completely in the middle of nowhere!

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's okay to live on campus. In this town it'd be way cheaper to live off campus unless you have your housing paid for. But being on campus makes it easier to get to classes.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: We don't have greek life, but you're a part of a house. Examples of house names would be Aponivi (mine), Sariah, Orion, Solah, Timona. This system is unique to Graceland Uviversity. Houses do activities together and compete against other houses throughout the schoolyear during Homecoming week and also intramurals.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Since this is a small school, the majority of the students are involved in a sport. Athletic events are well attended and supported.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never heard of any assaults taking place on our campus. I feel this is one of the safest campus' in the country.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone I have come across I think have had my success in mind. I think the quality of the courses and the knowledge of the professors are top notch.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I honestly have not experienced this yet but from what I have discussed with others this is a great campus for your future with employers or continuing your education.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think an update to the rooms would be nice, better heating and cooling.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: NA We do not participate in this at my school
