Shorter University is an amazing college! The main college campus is amazing because it is all together "up on the hill". They call it "Shorter on the hill." Everything is all together and the classes are the perfect size. The classes are not too big and it allows the students to create a good relationship with their professors. All the students are able to connect to each other and maintain healthy relationships. This school truly is a place where people can go to make lifelong relationships and start an amazing journey in their life.

I love that my school is small. It makes it easier to know and keep up relationships with people, not to mention walking to class on time! The music and theatre department are small, but all the professors know their stuff and are more than willingly to work with students one-on-one. The small classroom settings for me as a performer means more stage/working time ad I love that.

Shorter University has been a very good fit for me. Their academics are thorough and the professors really take time to meet with you and help you on an academic level as well as a personal level. Their sports program is a huge emphasis there, and I love sports so it fits perfectly with me. However, it is not the sports or the academics that make Shorter perfect for me, but instead it is the people. I joined the fraternity Delta Sigma Phi, and it has been one of the best decisions of my life. Growing so close to a group of guys I call my brothers has been a privilege and an honor. I have made so many lifetime friends and connections at Shorter that I would not trade for anything.
