What is your overall opinion of this school?

There was a decline in enrollment and thus a decrease in acceptable standards in regards to admissions. Take note of the other student reviews. Academics have taken a turn for the worse. What was not acceptable as undergrads years ago is now common practice in their graduate program. Classes are eight weeks with meetings once per week. There is little to takeaway and apply to the real world. As one reviewer put it. This school today is at best comparable to a junior college. The staff consist of students that are unable to get a job in the real world. There is little help after college and the career services center is a joke. The overwhelming majority of students who graduate from this University do not return for obvious reasons. (Just under 70%) Potential employers and admission counselors doing research on prospective employees and students should set the cut off mark at 2016 when the previous president left the university along with most of the tenured faculty. Aviation anc transportation majors should look into Southern Illinois University Business majors should look into Loyola, DePaul or Western Illinois University Nursing majors should look into Loyola University or St. Xaviar Psychology, Sociology and Education majors should look into Northern Illinois University. It is unfortunate what has progressed in recent years. It is important to note that all Universities change and evolve over time. What is true now may not be how it is in a few years. The arch dioceses needs to replace the current president. Us Alumni from years ago received notice that he would accept meetings only if an alumni made a $400 payment to him in person. This does not reflect the Lasallian Heritage and core mission values.

Great school, but wonderful professors! They genuinely care for you and want you to succeed! They will help you if you need extra help and they will always give real life examples that they have experienced. Classes seem to go by quickly and I always look forward to gather as a community

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lewis University is, overall, a good institution. It is quiet on the weekends. Housing is adequate, but the food usually below average. There is a good mean every once in a while. Professors are usually easy to approach and meet with after classes. Almost all of them have office hours in between classes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice, laid back university that is not extremely vocal of extracurricular activities unless you go out looking for them. The classes are what you would expect from a private college, the roster is usually very small, there is a lot of homework they give you, and it is challenging.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lewis used to be a cool school with a lot of cool people from diverse backgrounds. Your friends were from around the country and even the world. It was diversity without the politics and the professors were knowledgeable in the subjects they taught. When you went to class you learned something. The campus was always busy. The green looked like a typical campus. That being said it’s disgraceful what they’ve turned it into. They’ve misinterpreted Lewis’s mission to mean inclusion no matter the cost rather than Inclusion without sacrificing quality. The classes are joke. The staff is 95% women. Not that it’s a bad thing; they just swung to be that type of campus...You get industry professionals who’ve never taught a class in their life or you get third rate professors like those from UTI, Robert Morris, and dare I say it University of Phoenix. Yes it’s that bad. I’ll go on further to say that their mba program is even worse. 8 week semesters which is really 7 and a lot of the students in those classes do not get the basics of business. You need ten minimum though I honestly feel it should be longer as it’s a masters. Everyone gets an A. If you have to try for a B. If theirs any board of education members reading this I beg you to pull the accreditation. This isn’t what it should be or used to be. They need to up their game and hire full time professors. The new president hasn’t got a clue. If you work for the arch diocese fire this guy. Whats the point of “raising up the rest” if provide them with a below average education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Originally, I was not excited about going to Lewis because I only knew of one other student who would be attending the same college as me and that made me nervous. Soon after beginning school, I fell in love with the campus and everything about it. The students and faculty are very welcoming and friendly. I found it especially nice that the campus had a chapel, as I was worried that I would become too busy to be as engaged in my religion. I would probably say that the downside of Lewis would be the campus food. Since my freshman year of college, they have been improving in the quality and diversity of the foods so I do not have much to complain about now. Overall, I love Lewis, I would recommend it to others, in fact I do any chance I get, and I am glad that I chose to complete my undergraduate education at Lewis University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

To me when I first visited Lewis I was enthralled and captured by the beautiful campus. I knew, when visiting the website and the campus itself this was the place for me. Now I have only visited it twice but I am committed and so ready and excited to not only learn and achieve academic goals but to live here as well. Shorter than a month and I am ready.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Lewis University is a great school to attend. Unlike many, Lewis makes it a priority in a way to help students find employment right after college. Apparently Lewis is one of the best private institutions in the Midwest and it isn't hard to believe.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Lewis may not be like other colleges, but it is home to me. Lewis is smaller and not in a common area but there are still things to do on the weekends. I love the classes and activities that Lewis provides. I am always excited for the weekends whether it be spending time with my friends, supporting our sports teams or by playing a game in my sport that I am a part of there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My opinion of Lewis University is I love it. The campus gives a big campus feel even though it is not that big. The class sizes are small and the professors are amazing. The professors will also try to help you out as much as they can if you need extra help on what's going on in class.
