Academics: Best study area is probably the library most days. There's a Kaldi's Coffee next it and it's as good as Starbucks.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I was legitimately the only Computer Engineer going through the school. (Not at my new school though.)

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
