Where do I even begin with this review? Asbury on the outside looks like an amazing school. If you take a campus tour, you will be completely convinced and persuaded to attend. However, I advise that you take a step back and rethink other options before attending this school. There are no words to describe how bad and overpriced the on campus housing is. Glide-Crawford is falling apart. Paint is peeling off the walls, there are holes in the walls, the windows are dirty and dusty. The mattresses are very old with urine, period blood, and other mysterious stains. The community kitchen, aka the commons, has a weird smell and always dirty because the girls don't know how to clean up after themselves. The shower curtains have mold on them and there is mold in the corners of the showers. As well as, the occasional sewer bugs. You have to pay extra to live in a single dorm, and you don't even get a closet if you live in a single. The rooms are already tiny, but the single is extremely small but costs more than a double. I\'m also very disappointed that Asbury did NOTHING for the 2020 graduates during the COVID-19 pandemic. They had an online graduation, but that was it. The school did absolutely NOTHING else for these students who spent well over $120,000 for their degree and spending 4 years at this school. Smh. Even the University of Kentucky had an in person ceremony for their 2020 graduates. Also, the classroom buildings are old and falling apart. The desks are old and the classrooms feel like a high school. The professors don\'t know how to use the technology, especially if they want to use a powerpoint. Chapel is mandatory for 3x a week, which is fine. However, the songs are repetitive, and boring and the chapel speakers are a hit or miss. The only nice thing about Asbury are the professors and the financial staff, which is really sad. Don\'t get me started on the caf food. 2020-2021 food was horrible and such a waste of Styrofoam and money in general. They upped the meal plan cost, yet their lettuce was always brown, always served fries, fried chicken, burgers, and pizza. The healthy choice options sucked, and looked like someone either threw up or regurgitated the food. Overall, the school is overpriced and overrated. They only care about students who\'s parents have lots of money or have connections. You\'re honestly better off at a state school, and it\'s cheaper!
In my opinion they do not actually operate as a christian university. Christianity is about helping and forgiving. Not condemning. However, here if you are struggling with a problem it almost feel as if there is no one to actually help because you're afraid of being suspended or expelled. The mold caused me to become horridly sick which affected my grades. There is next to no affordable stores within walking distance. they have a locally owned grocery store that in my opinion is over priced. While i felt safe walking alone in the dark, i would not suggest walking around during the winter in the dark because they do not properly clear leaves and salt for ice. I fell down a set of cement stairs and nobody ever came to ask me what the problem was. There were icy leaves all over the stairs which could have helped me if they had been cleared.
I love Asbury University. Great staff and peers. This is an awesome school to attend. You will not regret your decision to be apart of a family away from home. This is a big decision in your life so choosing wisely is a must. They stand on the their morals and standards as a whole. College should be taken seriously and Asbury as put an imprint on myself and my family heart. I will recommend Asbury to anyone. They believe God first and then education!!!!
I love Asbury. I could not have gone anywhere else. Asbury has a variety of people and trips to attend. The largest class I’ve been in is around 40 students and that was a Gen-Ed. I’ve had a class of five people for multiple classes. As you get into your major your class size gets really small.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Asbury University is 69%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would advise that I connect more with other classmates and study together. I relied too much on my own to complete assignments or take tests. I think learning from others and working together is a necessary component to education.
The best thing about Asbury College is that I am an Education Major and it is considered to be the top college in the state with regard to students who obtain teaching jobs after graduation. Graduates in Education from Asbury College are heavily sought which makes my future look bright.
Asbury College is a school in wilmore ky that tries to portray a christian academic environment, but really suggests a place where hoverparents can send their child who has no maturity, no willpower, and no means of disconnecting themselves from their overly-controlling parents.
Almost all of my peers are conservative, white, christian "do-good'ers" who have high standards for friends, who are offended by the media, and who look down on those who are not like them.
I feel like someone who is into the party scene should not attend Asbury. Asbury is a school based on a Free Methodist background so the school is very stron in its beliefs and set of rules and values. You do not have to be Methodist to feel welcome at Asbury though, I'm not and I feel great about being here.
Asbury is known academically media com department and Education department. Our school sends 40+ people to work for the Olympics every two years, and our teachers are nationally ranked. However, Asbury is known for its religious standing, its conservative style and its strict rules.
Asbury College is a great school for persons who want to attend a faith based institution. Chapel is required 3 times per week and is very focused on Christ centered gatherings, ballgames and functions.
I like to express to others how at home i feel here. All the students, staff, and alumni are friendly and welcoming. I know that I always have someone to talk to when needed. The professors are very good about their office hours and being available. Most professors even give you their home phone numbers. It feels as if everyone is one big family. The school is just perfect in size.
This is a school that is dedicated to christian values. It has a strong foundation in community and and helping everyone around the world. The school is supportive to everyone who attends and will allow you to recieve the best education and have the best resources.
The only thing I would consider inconveint about Asbury, is the reqirement to attend chapel three times a week. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we are to attend chapel from 10- 10:50. The whole campus attends this and is required to sit in assigned seating. There are "chapel checkers" who spend the time checking to see if you are there that day or not. If your absent, sleeping, eating, etc you get marked absent. The only good part is we recieve .25 credit each semester for attending.
There are some rules that I don't agree with like our curfew and the no dancing rule. There are also some people on campus who seem to think that they are better than other people just what group they belong to and that bothers me.
The quality of community at the college, is low, but the academics are high. I wish I'd know before I attended any school that the school I'm at now has great support for students with learning disabilities.
