I just completed my first semester at Moody Bible Institute and it exceeded my expectations in several ways. I love the integrity of the school and the community on campus. The Student Dining Room is home to many great academic and uplifting conversations and the professors are approachable and caring.

Nicole

Moody has solid Biblical teaching with a great community that has implementations to help Christians in their walk with Christ. Although the food at Moody Bible Institute is not that great, it is located in the heart of down town Chicago. There are a lot of different things to explore like the bean or Maggie Daley Park.

I really enjoy attending Moody Bible Institute. My time here has grown me in ways I could have never imagined. I came in as a naïve freshman girl, thinking I was "mature" and already knew a lot about the Bible and Christian Ministry. But my educational experience here has shown me how little I know, how much I can grow, and how many people are lovingly willing to help me get there. One of my favorite aspects of my education was the Church History courses I took. I realized how much more my present reality made sense if I looked at it through the lens of church and (consequently) world history. I learned why certain aspects of our present condition in society are "messed-up" in my opinion, because there is history to explain how we got here. This lead to a world of discovery for me. Another integral part of my educational career occurred when I went on Moody's Study Abroad Program in Israel. I spent eleven weeks living in Jerusalem and seeing the stories of the Bible come alive as I walked in the very same places that biblical characters walked. This helped me grow in my faith. The opportunity for close relationships with professors also developed here as I realized how much of an impact class size can have on the learning experience. I also learned how to live in a very tight community with my classmates. We often experienced each other's flaws, conflicts arose and deflated, but in the end we all remained friends. It was incredible to grow with my peers in such an intimate setting. This time at Moody I will always look back on fondly. This school has given me so much more than I could have asked of it!

My overall opinion is that, while the school has its downfalls and issues, so does every other school. The education and experience you gain are quite helpful, even if it's not quite what you expect. There's a strong sense of community on campus. With a couple exceptions, the professors want to help you and have a heart not only for teaching their subject, but also for the Lord.
