3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I'm not really into sports it the sports that I have seen like the games are pretty good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall at my school so far has been great, it is a bit expensive due to the fact that it's a private school but with the help of my financial aid and all the scholarships they offer for other activities on campus I'm only paying $400.00 out of pocket! It's a great environment a safe one and you can tell the teachers are dedicated and want you to succeed, it's also challenging but what's life without a challenge !

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: There have been a lot of break ins on campus and out of McKendree West. There have been multiple recently which really worries me. I have been very uneasy about break ins. This has scared me quite a lot, actually. There are also numerous parties that occur on a daily basis that are not busted. Being a student who does not drink or party, this is very aggravating to me. I wish there were more measures being taken towards these two topics.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The job outlook is pretty great. All of the faculty, staff, and teachers are always finding ways to help their students find internships and job opportunities. There are always recruiters on campus passing out information on probable careers. There is a variety of resources on campus available to students to better their chances of finding amazing careers for their futures.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the professors here really care about their students and teach their courses really well. You can tell they want their students to succeed, and it is easy to get to know them. They are open and honest, and they provide students with proper information to prepare them for their futures. They know a lot about their subjects and you can tell they are passionate about them. The class sizes are very small and I love this! They are also styled perfectly with lectures on powerpoints and such. There are a ton of classes offered also. They are very difficult, though, and are a great challenge.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live out at West, and there have been a lot of problems such as: our patio door as been leaking, the ceiling above one of our showers is leaking and caving in, our fridge handle is broken, and there are a lot of nasty stains around the apartment. They are pretty gross when you really look at them. They are decent, though, and have a lot of room in them. The freshmen dorms are awfully small, and I am thankful that I have not had to live in them.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Honestly, I do not know very much about Greek Life. There are a lot of students involved in Greek Life on campus, but it is not talked about very much. There is no distinction between those in sororities and fraternities and those who are not. I have friends who are in a sorority and they like the programs a lot.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are obviously a big part of the McKendree experience. Most of the students at McKendree are involved in sports. It is definitely a sports school. Our teams are very good and draw much attention from fans. I feel that we have a lot of school spirit here. I absolutely love our athletic facilities! I love to work out in the gyms. They are very nice, clean, and have a lot of equipment to offer.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the small town feeling that McKendree brings. I love the small campus and how the classes are small and more personal. I have gotten to know my professors very well, and this is important to me. I am able to have adequate one on one time with my teachers. However, McKendree is very expensive, and I feel that with my academic record being what it is I deserved a better scholarship than what I was given. There are many athletes paying an immense amount less than me to attend here while I put triple the effort into my schooling than they do and my grades show this. It makes me feel like I should have looked into more schools who were willing to pay me more for my hard work throughout my academic history and current studies.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at this school are phenomenal. This school is one that will make it possible to get a job right out of college.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: On campus during the day I feel very safe, but at night the campus is very dark and you do not see Public Safety out that much and I don't feel as safe as I do during the day. Over all the campus is relatively safe and you don't need to worry too much about anything happening to you.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a wide variety of classes to choose. The professors are very nice and respectful of you. If you are having trouble they will have one on ones with you and help you individually if you need it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Having a degree from this school will help me on getting a job. This school is so well respected and I am confident that I will find a job once I get out of college because of the school I went too.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Everything is close to campus and even if you live off campus it is still in walking distance to the campus. Very social and get to meet new people. I made some of my best friends from where I lived at.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There aren't very many choices to pick from, and they are relatively small but they have a big impact on our campus.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Most people on campus go to support the sports teams when they can. Everything is very nice when it comes to the facilities and the trainers know what they are doing and are very helpful.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Everybody makes you feel like you matter. Feels like a home away from home. There are so many things on campus to get involved with. Your teachers know your name and encourage you to text or call them if you need help. Attending this school was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I will be starting this school in January.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the atmosphere here at McKendree. This college is fairly small and you get know everyone very well. This establish better friendships and real friends. Also the education here is great. It is challenging but the reward will by far succumb the countless nights of studying and doing homework.

Overall Experience: McKendree University is a D2 private university in a small town. It has the laid back and family like atmosphere with bigger cities nearby - Fairview Heights, O'Fallon, St. Louis. Small class sizes allows you to get to know your professors and your classmates. D2 athletics means both academic and athletic scholarships are available. The faculty really does seem to care about your future and want you to get the most out of your McKendree experience. There are a lot of opportunities to get involved and stand out on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: At McKendree University, the professors and staff make it a part of their mission not only to know you on a personal level, but also to interact with you on a personal level. They know when something is wrong with you. Our President, Dr. Dennis, hands out FREE ice cream on hot days to help students beat the heat! McKendree has helped me decide my future, the staff is dedicated to helping students gain the knowledge necessary for a future occupation. I would definitely choose McKendree University again because the level of compassion that every single professor holds for his or her job is absolutely beautiful. I cannot imagine a school in which the professors are as dedicated in helping the student on every aspect of his or her life.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am becoming a teacher. I will end up student teaching. For this, there is no pay. The school is very helpful to students by helping them find schools to student teach at. As a student teacher I realize I will have all the responsibilities of a teacher. Being a teacher or student teacher in this case is very time consuming

Party Scene: Depending on what you call a party scene. I find it fun to hangout at the apartment with a group of friends playing cards and watching tv

Campus Housing: I live at West apartments this year. The apartment is great. Parking is not good, we need more dumpsters evenly distributed, and i wish we could have washers and dryers in the areas that they were built for inside the apartment. Social atmosphere is nice because you can have many people over at a time. The traditional dorms were good for this because having your door open, anyone could stop by.

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.
