10 Students rated Cumberland University
Cumberland is a small school with several positives. The professors are very accessible and are always willing to help. There is academic rigor and many academic conversations around campus. It is a growing school with several majors to choose from despite its small size.
The food is decent as is the housing.
Cumberland University is an outstanding school. It is a very small campus that is easy to get around. The academic work is easily understandable, and it is easy to make friends. I am currently enrolled as a freshman and I absolutely love it. I got offered to play baseball here with Coach Woody Hunt, and that was the best decision because Cumberland has an amazing athletic program. The environment is very safe and warm, and I am more than happy to be here at Cumberland and look forward to furthering my career here.
My time at Cumberland University so far has, in all honesty, been good. Like every college or school you attend, it has its ups and downs. It is a fairly small school and you can get from one end to the other in about 5 minutes. Most of the rooms in Memorial Hall are cold in the winter and warm in the summer unfortunately. But overall the school is great and the Nursing program is wonderful.
I have loved being here at this university for the past 3 and a half years. I have made some of my best friends while here at this school. The professors really care about you not just academically as a student but also personally as a person. They help you from beginning to end and are always there when you need them. Go Phoenix!

I have a profound bilateral hearing loss. At the time I lost my hearing I did not quite understand my condition, but as the time went on, I grew to know that she meant I would never be able to hear like a regular person again. I felt so alone and unaware of my surroundings. People would laugh, and I would not know what the joke was; people would cry, and I would not even know why they were crying; it was complete and utter silence. The only sound I was able to hear was the ringing in my very own ears that gave me such a headache almost every day.
I have heard great things about their Nursing Program.
There awesome, some of the best people you will ever meet is here at Cumberland.
i wish that i would have known that the administration was a joke. The common word around campus is for students to just hurry up and get away from there as fast as they can.
Somone who likes small shcools and likes to have a good teacher to sudent ratio.
Over priced, over rated, and understaffed, they are non coropperative with veterens and the head of their registar dosen't even have a high school diploma. the entire place is an overpriced joke.
The nursing program has the reputation of being the best nursing school around the area. I wanted to be a part of this upstanding program and university.
Itssmall. People talk. If you aren't wise about the decisions you make, you might become unhappy, people here love gosip! It's not fun to be the talk of the town. Unless you are making great decisions and doing awesome, that sort of thing will be talked about too! I think if you use this small town to your advantage and stay on a positive track you will get a positive outcome and visa versa.
most fustrating thing at this campus is that it for one is too small, the male to female ratio "on the main campus" is almost 6 to 1. And, the school is not ethnicly diverse at all.
this school is best known for business, nursing, law, and baseball.
I brag about the relationships you gain while learning on campus. Normally when you attend a large college you don't really get to know the other students on campus while spending a lot of time studying. At Cumberlad University you grow personally with others while you study.
