This school is amazing. I wouldn’t change my choice ever. Things are always happening and people are always involved. Student life plans multiple events every month and keeps students on their toes. There are plenty of ways to stay active and stay busy after you finish studying.
Shorter University is an amazing school! They care very rigorously about their students' education, but care even more so for their spiritual growth, which is my favorite thing about this school. The professors are the best of the best and are always available. It is a small school which means everyone knows each other and is very friendly.
Shorter University is overall a great school with an inviting community. I've always felt at home here, my professors have all been wonderful and helped to lead me. My only complaint would be that campus life can get a bit dull sometimes. However, Rome is a great little town and there's usually something fun happening downtown! Shorter is a school that will give you great academics, great leadership skills, wonderful opportunities to be involved in the community, and most importantly, a place to call home.
It is a blessing sent from Heaven! I have visited many schools but this one was different. Right when I stepped on campus this feeling came over me, it was home. Moreover, academics are amazing, the christian faith is true and the opportunities offered to students are outstanding! I will be a freshman in the fall and I cannot tell you how excited I am to begin this new chapter of my life of the grounds of SU. What truly stood out was the environment and how everyone is like a family. I want to experience that and everything else it has to offer even if I have to commute, this school is worth it.

I would have told myself to stay focused and do not procrastinate and get your education. I should have started my degree when I first came to this country and my brain was young and fresh.
I am proud to say that I am an Alumni from Shorter who recently returned to finish my Bachelors in Nursing. I have enjoyed my time at this University and have had some of the best Professors! The campus is beautiful, and the Nursing School offers awesome SImulation Labs to enhance my Nursing skills.
Any one who wants to better themselves and improve their life.
Shorter College is school filled with good people who care about education in a healthy and comfortable manner.
very focused, very well time managed, light hearted, witty
How Much fun i have working with my class mates and teacher , and how much i have learned
The school is a very stong Christain focus in all the events. This can become a little overwhelming for a new student.
The best thing about Shorter is the excellent community of learners and educators that exist there. Students and teachers maintain an excellent rapport. Students are encouraged to try new things. Students are challenged to push themselves in order to grow academically. Teachers never expect less than their students' best. The campus maintains the high quality of a much larger school, while located in a small town community. Programs are designed to allow students to take part in community outreach activities, which will further prepare them for being positive contributors to society in life. Shorter is the best university around, period!
Shorter is a Christian established school and I believe that anyone is allowed to attend this school. Religion is for everyone and the Christian thing to do is to accept anyone who wants to become part of this establishment.
This school does not academically prepare you for graduate school at any institution other than their own. This school is highly conservative and strongly emphasizes Southern Baptist principles. This school is willing to sacrifice the quality of its education and support due to the religious beliefes of the faculty and staff. This school is more for students who are not quite ready to attend college. This school does not help you find a job or graduate school effectively. This school is not supportive of scientific or technological fields due to their religious position.
The faculty turnover rate is high and thus sometimes you will have too big a variety of teachers.
