Marantha Baptist University is a school that offers an excellent education. The professors are some of the most caring people I know. All of my professors have open door policies, and will meet to help you if you are struggling. They care about your learning and want to see you succeed. Nowhere is perfect, but I appreciate the education I am receiving, and the teachers that are helping me grow as a person.
