Overall Experience: Mckendree offers and wide variety of interships, in all iys majrs even though we reside in a small community. While career services a the school are always on the look out to help students in any way they can from picking a career to working on your resume. Making getting a degree from McKendree like getting a degree from an ivey league school like harverd.

Health & Safety: For the most part I definatly feel 100% safe on campus. But I have heard of cases on campis of assalt, sexual assalt, robbery, and etc at McKendree.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I personally enjoyed the housing at McKendree, while most of the housing is definatly not perfect. The living arrangments still come though and meet my housing needs including spaciosness, cleanliness, independence, driendliness, and utilities. Over all I cannot complain.

Greek Life: From my perspective, the McKendree greek scene is not a huge part of campus living unless your in a soriety or fraternity. Due to regulations by the city of soriety and fraternity housing, even though McKendree offers a wide variety of traditional and unisex fraternitys and sorietys to join, they virtually go unnoticed, except for thier more popular event, in the community.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: From my perspective, even though McKendree is not division one ranked, athletics are still a part of the school. Half the studnets at McKendre are on an athletic scholarship for one sport or another. The events, esspecially americas two pass times are always fairly attended. The work out rooms and gyms are always clean, organized, and up to date with the latest work out equipment, and the Campus activities board are always planning an event for one sporting event or the other.

Overall Experience: While McKendree University is a small university in an even smaller town, deciding to go to McKendree was one of the best decisions I ever made. Unlike other universitys I visited my senior year which were large, overwhelming, and stressful. I find that McKendree was totally diffrent, its mid sized campus allows me to have the full college expieience with out feeling over or under whelmed. The passion the proffesors have combined with the small class sizes makes me feel extremly more comfotable in class because it makes it easier to have ask questions and have free discussions on the topics in class amonst the proffesor and fellow classmates. Also I never feel neevous about asking my proffesors questions about the topics and assignmenys before and after class, I know they will always make time for thier students. Lastly unlike other campus, the people I meet at McKendree are some of the kindest, honest, and most loyalest I have ever met. Have the time when I leave my door I can often leave it unlocked because I know no one will steal from me. In conclusion from my perspective, what McKendree lacks in size it definatly makes up for in edjucation and a sense of community, which I think it simply the bee's knee's.

Health & Safety: Mckendree has a very safe campus. Walking alone at night is no issue at all and most people leave their doors open so others can say hi.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Living on campus is what made me come out of my shell. The resident assistant really made the community whole, and the food was always ready when I was hungry. I loved it.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Very good experience! Professors are happy to be helpful, there are a lot of different courses offered, and administration is always helpful when thinking about registering for classes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Administration is happy to be a reference for students when it comes to looking for careers. There are also affiliations with other schools that allow students to find a program that works for them.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Small school, hardly any crime or issues with assault.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I like the housing. The rooms in the traditional dorms are bigger at this school than at many others, even though they are still relatively small. It is easy to feel like the floor you live on is a family, and everyone in the traditional halls seems to grow close enough to consider themselves a family.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not really into sports, but the games always bring a lot of people and if you go with a group it is pretty fun. School spirit is always high, what with everyone having clothes bought from the book store, and there are lots of ways to get involved on campus with or without sports.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What makes my school unique is that it is small. This allows classes to be tiny and the professors to know their students by name. Professors are always happy to lend a helping hand in learning the material, or even helping the students out with personal issues if needed. The school is like a family, and a home away from home.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Sexual assault isn't a problem at our university.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Very roomy and looks very clean.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletic director and athletes are the best.

5 College Freshman

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

McKendree University is a lovely, small, close-knit school that students enjoy very much. Everyone gets along as a family would. Not only are students challenged by the academics, but they also experience a fun learning adventure. Students receive very positive reinforcement from other students, faculty, and staff at McKendree, to assist them with all of their ambitions and to help them pursue a (hopefully) successful career in the future. Professors are willing to go above and beyond to help students reach their fullest potential by making improvements in their teaching methods and taking any suggestions along the way. In addition, the commitment of students to learn and always strive to do their best serves as great motivation and determination for the teachers.

While there's not much to do in the way of nightlife in Lebanon, students have to learn how to be independent and seek entertainment on their own. St. Louis is not too far away, so that's always a good option. Also, there are plenty of activities and clubs on campus with which to get involved. All in all, a student's McKendree experience is what he or she makes of it.
