4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Maryville is a really wonderful academic school. It is growing, expanding, and developing into a more well-rounded university. We are adding new buildings and new athletic teams. This school is a great place for students to meet new people, get involved with campus life, and also get involved with the community. Maryville emphasizes service work and cancels classes for a day so students can go out in the surrounding area and do service work for those in need. If students are looking for a medium sized university that is constantly evolving and growing to become better and stay ahead of the game, Maryville is definitely a contender in their college search.

My experience at Maryville has been both incredible and sometimes awful. Maryville has helped me grow as a person and given me opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to have had elsewhere. I have made incredible friends who I can't see myself without. I have become ingrained in the university and taken on roles that I never saw myself in.

I would choose Maryville again, not only for their freshman direct entry physical therapy program, but for the "homey" feel and welcoming atmosphere that is apparent as soon as one steps foot on campus. Maryville was a good fit for me. It's an isolated campus which is nice sometimes when I want to feel like I'm not in the middle of a big city, but it's close enough to all the action that it's not hard to find something to do.

Maryville does have its drawbacks. The campus is small, and as we grow, I'm a little leery as to how the size will impact what we need to do to expand. It's also sometimes unfortunate that the campus is so isolated. We are landlocked by highways and unable to walk to a grocery store or gas station without getting in a vehicle. I wish that we would be able to walk to nearby restaurants or grocery stores for ease and convenience. The speed bumps around the campus are also a major downer.

Overall Experience: I transferred to Maryville from a state university where my lectures had 500 students in them, and my teachers didn't notice when I skipped 7 lectures in a row, nor did they care. That quickly became what I thought a college was like. But then I transferred to Maryville because I wanted to get serious about my education. It didn't take long before I realized that Maryville is extremely concerned about each one of their students and both their academic and mental well being. Each one of my teachers genuinely cared about my success and will work as tirelessly as I am willing to work in order to ensure my future. I am not exaggerating about how much Maryville has changed my life. I'm not the biggest social butterfly so I cannot attest to all the wonderful clubs, but from what my friends say those are all close-knit and useful as well. I feel that I am excelling both academically (compared to my peers at other colleges) and as a person. I would highly suggest that anyone who cares about being a well-rounded student and exceeding in their careers (especially medical) should look into Maryville. Great and very safe location as well.

Overall Experience: My school is unique because it is extremely academic. This may sound silly because, after all, it is a school. However, my university prides itself on the great academic successes of its students. I would say most students at my school are very driven to be successful during their four years at the university which, in turn, creates that very important academic feel I am describing.

Guys & Girls: Mostly girls on campus. They are attractive. Not too stuck up though. I've seen worse on Mizzou's campus.

1 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: It's in an expensive area and anything cheap enough is at LEAST 15 miles out. I'd look at UMSL or something for a cheaper alternative to off-campus housing.

2 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: It's been improving a lot, especially with the NCAA Division change.

1 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: What the heck. Schools have a nightlife? Campus is quieter than a dead mouse in cotton at night.

3 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The professors are excellent and the teaches are very great.
