5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I don't think I have ever felt unsafe on campus. Public Safety is always patrolling and there are procedures in place for any issues that may arise.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are great. They expect the students to give their all and are always willing to help if needed. There are lots of different courses offered and encouraged at McKendree. The class sizes are nice and classes are engaging.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Career Services is a great office that McKendree has available for its students, but I feel that it is highly underutilized.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus seemed to have a better sense of community, but the off campus "on campus" housing doesn't have a real sense of community. The dorm rooms were decent when I stayed in them. The lounges are great amenities as well as the cardio room. They do seem to be a bit pricey, but they're necessary for attending the university.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have seen a lot of school spirit on campus, but it could improve.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed my time at McKendree. The professors are very passionate about what they are teaching and helpful if you ask for it. There are many activities available for students to participate in for fun and also for academics. I love the location of the school and the campus itself. The only reason I gave it 4/5 is because of the price. It may not be the most expensive, but for someone who is there on an academic scholarship and works four jobs, it is a bit steep.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Public safety walking/drives around campus every fifteen minutes.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are really helpful and will take the time to help you even if you are not in their class. If they notice that you have dedication they would go out of their way to make sure you get the help and classes that you want.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school have job/internship programs often for the students.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is great with some minor problems, for example the noise of the athletes and music being too loud, but otherwise it is peaceful.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I honestly do not know anything about the greek life at this school because I focus on my work instead of greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I honestly do not attend any sports games, but news travel fast in my school and my school has won most of all the games they played. My school is mainly athletes so my school has a lot of team spirit because we all support each other in our own way.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: If their is a problem on campus Public Safety will come right away and get to the bottom of any situation needed at that time. I've seen them come late at night and in the early mornings because its what their supposed to do and they care about the students because they have children of their own they don't want to see go through anything.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since I've been here at McKendree I've only had one bad experience with a professor because of the lack of communication between us. I made a B in the class but it could've been better. I took advantage of our Writing Center and a tutor to help me throughout the way. Being active with your professor helps them to help you even more and makes the class easier for you. They are always their to help me when I need it and even their just to talk.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I currently have two jobs, one here on campus and one off of campus. It is very difficult to get a job here on campus only because we are a small campus. Our career services program helps me as well because they found multiple internships that fit what I want to do in my future career as well as a permanent job.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living here on campus is really good for me because I live a few hours away from home but I am close to the city and close to other relatives of mine. I currently live in the new dorms that were recently built and they are great. I have my own room and bathroom which is very convenient for me and I have quite a few friends that come over because my room is bigger. Even though it costs more I was happy to live here because it was what I wanted. My social life is good because I talk to people in my class and most of them live in the same building as me and that gives me a chance to have study groups with them and even go places with them outside of school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: We have more sororities here on campus thank fraternities but all show us how to be apart of the community and help one another. The Greeks treat everyone the same no matter if they are apart of their group or not because it is a very small campus that is starting to build on social issues.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a big part of McKendree because over half of the campus is involved in some type of sport and we are like one big family and we pack the building in any condition to support one another. Since our teachers are very close to us they are always their for support as well to each of their students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being here at McKendree University has taught me to be more open with others and understandable of others feelings. Being that our student to teacher ratio is very good, all my teachers know me by name and so does my president. I will be here for my Master's program because faculty members are already encouraging me to pursue my dream and they are helping me along the way.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This is a really great school but not for me

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: most people get job apparently

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: As long as you live on campus and not in West, Perryman, or Hunter Street you're golden

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: This is a D3 school under the name of D2 trying to be D1

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I currently attend McKendree, however, my freshman year I attended Lewis University and had a much better experience there and the only aspect that made me transfer was because McKendree was much more affordable.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall, I love McKendree University. The class sizes are small and there are many types of courses available online.

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.
