Midway is a wonderful place for traditional and non traditional students. As a non-traditional student I was leery to return to the classroom and be able to keep up with the course work since I had been out of school for a while. From the very beginning I have been guided and encouraged by staff to push forward. Midway offers a variety of online courses along with in set courses to be able to cater to all students.

I do really enjoy Midway. It is a good environment and I love the people here. The one thing that I am at Midway University to get is an education, and Midway undoubtedly gives me that. My professors challenge me to be the best I can, and my coach and teammates hold me accountable for my academic success. The only reason why I give Midway University four stars instead of five stars is that there are little things here and there that I would change, such as the food in the cafeteria, the accessibility of stores and restaurants around the university, and the availability of parking on campus. However, overall I love this school and I am glad I chose it for my home away from home for four years.

IT is fantastic. There are multiple opportunities to be the best person you can be on this campus. The faculty and staff are great and I love the relationships I have with all my professors. This school provides a very safe campus and all the students here extremely friendly. Come to this school is like having a second family.

Brielle

I really enjoy attending Midway University. You really get the chance to know the other students in your major and your professors. I love the feeling of being kind of hidden away seeing as Midway itself is a small town, and the college is on a hill just outside. It's a wonderful place to be, and it's really nice to know that if you have any questions about the course material, your professors are available almost all the time.
