4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus not matter if I'm with a group or by myself. The people are kind and respectful so I don't have any worries of someone committing a crime on campus.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in my dorm. Compared to the other dorms on campus, the "Morrison" dorm is the nicest all boys dorm, and there is another similar all girls dorm called "Bittinger." This dorm has the biggest floor plan of all the dorms and is the freshest smelling and nicest looking.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I think sports is a big part of campus and the students try and get others to come to the games, no matter what the sport is. Coming to sporting events shows campus participation, which is a really big deal.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Even though the school is small, it has a great atmosphere. The teachers as well as most of the students are friendly and willing to help.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the classes are pretty small. The professors are very interested in each student and their success in the class.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: From what I have heard from past students and professors, it is pretty easy to get a job with a degree from my college. In my field one can get a job as little as 3 months out of college

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Every year there is a safety surgery for students to fill out and anything that needs fixed, the staff does what they can to adjust.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty great. There's plenty of room and places to be social. It is however difficult to get alone time when you have to share a bedroom

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not a sports person. I did however photograph shorts for a semester. The facilities are great. They are always clean and up to date. The whole campus supports the teams and everyone is encouraged to go to the games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: All of the teachers and staff are so nice and helpful. Everyone is interested in seeing each student succeed. The college also had plenty of activities and shorts to choose from to keep students active in the college experience. The schools biggest focus is Scholarship. Participation. Service. They want all students to be active in college life and in helping others as well as doing well in Class. Their goal is to create whole persons by the time everyone graduates.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Class sizes are usually 15 or less, the professors all really do care. I have no real complaints.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have no further comments, to my knowledge not a single security problem got out of hand in my 2 years here.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I personally enjoy it, having that separation from home has been terrific and I've loved it. Meeting new people a lot more than just in class. Though the prices (as it is a private school) are a bit ridiculous.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: We have a very small Greek life on campus, the only common one is Alpha Psi Omega, and common is a relative term. Next year we're going to have 6 students in the fraternity.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have greek life

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have learned to love and enjoy college

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: McPherson College is a small campus which is nice with a lot of diversity. I have had the opportunity to meet all sorts of people and learn about different cultures at the same time as my roommate is from London, England. I have made so many new friends and while there are times where I miss home, I wouldn't change my college decision because of the people I have got to know.

Athletics: Just like every other campus or institution, if your winning you have a crowd but if your loosing you only have your team cheering you on. Campus life is pretty big, the town is at every game win or lose. The school can use a lot more spirit and involvement. Team performances are about average just depending on who is recruited and who is coach-able. The city also donates a bunch to the college, while many of the college teams do community service hours to help the town grow.

Every student on campur or off-campus is allowed to use facilities including the basketball gym and the weight room.

Off-Campus Housing: The city is mall so all off campus living is right around each corner. This makes transportation to school and parts of the city much more easier then those on bigger campuses.

Off-Campus Dining: The city is very small so you cant expect for companies to expand in such a small area. The places are great and also cheap. You have your cheap burgers like Wendy's and McDonald's. There is a few Chinese restaurants, a Freddy's custards, 3 Mexican restaurants, 2 Subways, a few BBQ spots, Pizza Hut, Little Ceasers, and a few small personal owned restaurants.

Some of these places also give student discounts or student meals

You can get a good amount of food for about $6 , also plenty of your friends will find jobs at these places where you might get lucky and receive free food at times.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Its really strict, the RA's do a great job making sure there is no drug or alcohol use on campus. All violations are also very expensive and can lead to being expelled quickly.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Personally the school is very expensive. We never know where the tuition money goes because the halls and cafeteria need a bunch of upgrading. The best part of the school is the size, you can actually focus on academics and get the help from professors who also guide you to be successful.

Tuition is more expensive then bigger state schools

Party Scene: There are no parties here at the college. Off- campus parties hardly ever happen also. Maybe two or three parties and these parties are really small.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Food: If you do the math, a meal a day at the college is about $9. The food is uncooked at times and has no flavor or taste. Breakfast is the same thing on the menu every day. Sometimes you can even taste the re-use flavor of the food. For example, one day they will make chicken strips then the next day you will have chicken strips with marinara sauce. You then know the food is re used. I would rate the food here a 4.5 out of 10.

Campus Housing: Campus life is below average, there is not much to do here other then be a part of a club. The school size is really small whioch gives a student a better chance to focus on academics and finish school. Classroom sizes are smaller then those compared to bigger colleges which makes everything a lot more easier. Dorm life at McPherson is not as spacious, Metzler Hall is the all male hall. Consists of 3 floors, 1 kitchen on the first floor that we must all share and keep clean, each floor has there own restroom hall that is also shared by that floor. Morrison is the Auto Hall for the majors in Auto restoration usually, the most comfortable and newest hall, Bittinger is the all female hall. Dotzour is the co-ed men and female hall.

The cafeteria is a little crammed at times, the food is good maybe twice a week. You can taste the re-use food the best part of it would be the staff. The cafeteria staff is really friendly. Depending o what you decide to eat dictates if it is good or not. It includes a Pizza bar, salad bar, fruit bar, dessert area, ice cream machine, and your hot food table.

McPherson also includes a very friendly community that supports there high school and college sports. The staff here at the college as a whole is large. They are very helpful and respectful. Every problem or question I've had has been answered by one of the school representatives. The president of the school is also very friendly and helpful.

McPherson College also has a great span in sports. Each year you meet people from different states and countries who come here chasing the same dream as most of us. The coaches and staff are really friendly and helpful. I enjoy the help of the coaches after hours this includes wanting to get in the gym after hours a staff member will open it for you and allow you to work out.
