I have yet to experience the courses since I am an incoming freshman for the fall semester of 2016 but I have already seen my schedule and talked with numerous of my professors and I can say that I am very excited to dig into the courses and learn all I can from what my advisors and professors have prepared for me and my learning abilities. I do know that the class sizes are evenly decided and the student to teacher ratio is 15:1 so we are able to have an easier time and get a closer connection with fellow students and with our teachers/professors.

The environment is very welcoming and Christ-centered. Everyone on campus is very kind and helpful, no matter the situations. On my first visit to Spring Arbor University I was warmly welcomed by students, faculty, and other fellow incoming freshmen. I was given a chance to meet and talk with professors and engaged in useful and memorable conversations with them, the atmosphere while in contact with the professors was especially unique. They helped with my questions, concerns, and planning my future at SAU. When I was choosing colleges, Spring Arbor University was not even on my radar, I had heard about it but had my eye on other colleges that are similar but when I visited the Spring Arbor website, I immediately felt a connecting and knew that I was meant to attend and earn my degree from there. The admissions team and advisors went beyond lengths to help me and get everything in order fro me to attend and join the Spring Arbor University community this coming fall. What I think makes Spring Arbor University unique is their eagerness to help students gain confidence and encourage them in they're journey to becoming apart of society and growing in their spiritual faith and walk with God. They have a servant's heart and a Christ-centered mindset that is very different and amazing when compared to other colleges. I am very eager to become a member of the Spring Arbor community and begin my journey towards growing in my walk with the Lord and gaining my degree in the medical field.
