I just transferred from the University of Louisville to join the Nursing program at Spalding University. I chose Spalding because it is a small private school. I knew I was going to get a better learning experience. I didn't know much about the school but as soon as I came in contact with the faculty and staff I couldn't have been more impressed. They were extremely helpful when it came to getting everything transferred and in on time. They worked with me and most importantly made me extremely important. You can tell that the staff really does care about you and your education. I feel excited to be there and I know the staff and faculty are cheering me on!

For the Mature Student – I entered Spalding University via the Adult Accelerated Program. This is an excellent avenue for persons who are returning to school after many years of working, marraige, parenting ect. The professors are the greatest and they provide a quality education to any student willign to learn. Kudos to AAP!

Spalding University offers to it's students many perks. Their is a writing/math center for those students who may need help in those areas. Their is also student lounges, coffee on campus, a bookstore and other amenities that make student life comfortable. I grade Spalding as an A because they work for student success not at student success. Their are always workshops available for students to succeed. Every student has one on one time with an advisor who advocates for each student. I believe the caring environment of Spalding University earns them respect and is seen in Spalding graduates.
