I love this school so much! The academics are rigorous and challenging, the professors attentive and knowledgeable, and the community life-giving and fun. I adore all of the professors in my major and I know they will always be there to help me through papers and research projects. Also, a shout out to the honors program! I love the set up of the EP Hart Honors program, what with the extensive reading and insightful classroom discussions. I have only been at SAU for one year, but I can feel myself growing leaps and bounds!
They do a GREAT job of cashing your checks!
I love the community at Spring Arbor. As an athlete, I really appreciate the support from my student body. The professors here are generally super helpful. I've only just transferred into the Gainey school of Business but the whole department has been nothing but welcoming. Almost everyone person is rooting for your success here and wants to help you get there. I've had many sit down meetings with a career advisor who has helped me create a resume and look for internship/job opportunities. Another amazing tool that I've been able to utilize is the alumni network. Spring Arbor sets up relationships between current students and past students who are already successful in the field. The only complaints I have with the school are related to its outdatedness. The facilities and the rules are outdated. First, the facilities, our science facility could use a facelift. We don't have the most up to date equipment HOWEVER we do graduate some of the top science related majors in the country. Another is the rules, there are very few places that students of all genders can be at the same time. This a very small, extremely inconvenient problem. Our "open hours" are one day during the week and then a few hours each day on the weekend. Especially because campus is small and in the middle of nowhere, I think that the open hours should be changed to a more reasonable amount.
Spring Arbor University is an incredibly welcoming school. I am a non-trad student who works full-time and have a toddler at home and the teachers understand how difficult school is for students in my position and they really try to accommodate for challenges that students face. Being a transfer student from a local community college I can attest to how truly great and understanding the teachers are compared to other colleges. Even though SAU is a Christian college, I have never felt out of place for not believing in the faith. I am extremely thankful to have been accepted into SAU.

It is going to be fine. It is a lot more work and you will sleep a lot loss but you will be able to do it.
Save money and get ready for a good time.
I think that this school puts more importance on getting incoming students and not on the ones currently attending, this shows in our low retention rates.
Spring Arbor is a Christian Liberal Arts university with a strong spiritual and academic focus, but more than that, it is a place of community, a place to make life-long friends, and a place to call home.
The experience that I have had at Spring Arbor is unique. Many students go to school to forget the lies they have been taught and thus lose the morals they were brought up with. Here though, its more about finding your morals than loosing them. Just because Spring Arbor is a Christian environment doesn?t mean that the students live in a stereotypical bubble. I feel like a lot of the students here have already lived lives that they aren't proud of and therefore they are driven to change. They are here because they haven?t given up hope.
I wish I would have known the little availability of work. Spring Arbor is not a busy town whatsoever and there are only so many jobs on campus. Even then, you do not get a lot of hours to work, so it's hard to make money.
The greatest issue that I see are the few people who we aren't reaching. I have started to notice the few quiet people out there, who aren't exactly on the same page as everybody else. I myself am naturally introverted and its a constant struggle for me. What I?m saying is that I understand how these people feel. I wish they could have more friends and that people would go out of their way to include them in things. I feel inferior because I can see this and yet I too am afraid to talk to them.
Community based, we have lots of group projects and study groups and we all try to help each other out.

I would have to say for me the only thing that I find frustrating is the commute to school it takes me an hour to get to my school. I have to drive for a while and when I get done with my class it's late so when I get home I have no time to do anything other than go to bed. I also have no time at nite to spend with my family because I get home so late.
Spring Arbor Univeristy is unique compared to the other schools I had considered because of it faith perspective. Spring Arbor University integrates a leberal arts curriculum within the broader scope of Christian faith and has a high commitment to learning and the base all foundations of wisdom and knowledge from the Bible.
I think Spring Arbor University is best known for their Mission Statement. "Our Christ-centered mission is to develop and empower dedicated professional educators committed to student learning in a global society." SAU offered a perfect solution to my academic woes. The 2 year degree completion program, and attending class one evening a week fit nicely into my schedule. I enjoy the small class size and easy access to every resource I could possibly need to graduate. The SAU staff and professors have supported me through the program every step of the way. I am looking forward to graduation!
