They will fine you if you have alcohol on campus starting at $100. And if they find that you have any kind of drugs, they will make a big deal out of it and fine you on top of calling the residence director and the police. The RA's tell you to not be stupid about it and try to help you out if you do get caught, but don't bring it on campus. Not worth the $100.

I received enough financial aid to cover my tuition, but the rest of the costs that were added onto my school bill were ridiculous. They have generous scholarships but not a lot of opportunity. Dealing with the people at the financial aid office is an alright experience, but they're just after the money you can pay then and there even if you opt to pay the remainder over the course of 10 months.

Health & Safety:
I've not felt unsafe on the campus yet. They always keep the dorms locked so you have to have a key to get in. And with it being a small campus, it is well monitored by security. Just respect the hours they give you to get into your dorms and you'll be in good shape.

MAC requires that everyone lives off campus unless they are 23, married or have a dependent.

I love that there is free parking. My old school wanted me to pay $100 for a parking pass that was a 20 minute walk away from all of my classes. Fair amount of parking so even if you're spot is taken, you'll find another.

There are plenty of computer labs at MAC, one or two in each building and the library has stations with computers for if you have lots of papers to go through. The library and computer labs have free printing! To use the copy machine, however, there is a small fee. WiFi is good in the library and sometimes on and off in the dorms, but good for the most part. Having your own computer is nice but it is absolutely possible to not have one. There are even computers in the lobby areas of all dorms that can be used 24/7

The main rules that McPherson are strict about is cheating and alcohol/drug abuse. If you drink in dorms you will be caught and there is a no tolerance cheating policy. If you cheat, you fail, and a second time, you're out!

chain restaurants and fast food, good non-chain restaurants

I know it's a private school but they are bad about helping students find outside scholarships to help and they are not the best in describing the financial aid processes and billing and etc.

If you want money from McPherson College you better hope you have a long line of relatives that went to school here. Otherwise you aren't going to get very much money at all!
College Sophomore 2013-05-21T21:06:15Z
Campus is small and homelike here at McPherson. Anywhere you need to go you can get there by walking!

I truly enjoy and am glad that I chose my program of study at McPherson, if it weren't for this specific program, classic auto restoration, I would not be attending McPherson College. I enjoy the shop setting and hands on nature of the program. Because I like what I am doing, it does not seem to be a significant work load. The facilities are top notch and there are many jobs/internships available.

It is cold and windy in the winter with lots of snow. Classes were canceled for several days this winter because of the very large volume of snow.
College Sophomore 2013-04-01T20:29:26Z
Although I have not yet had any internship experiences, there are plenty paid summer internships available in classic auto restoration. Because the school has an exclusive bachelor's program in auto restoration, shops around the country and worldwide are interested in giving students from this program opportunity.
College Sophomore 2013-04-01T20:26:04Z
Thus far, the courses that i have taken in the classic auto restoration program have been relevant, interesting, informative, and hands on--the best part. I thoroughly enjoy the professors and learning from their expert shop knowledge.
College Sophomore 2013-04-01T20:23:31Z
Because it is a very small campus with a small student population, parking is never an issue.
College Sophomore 2013-04-01T20:22:31Z
To get into Classic Auto Restoration, I had to submit a separate application form the college admissions application. It was a fairly easy process, you just need to make sure that you include as much about prior automotive repair experience as possible and turn in a strong, researched essay about the craft.

The off campus apartment are nice. Not to fancy or anything. They are stil close and easy to everything on campus. The are located right behind the far end of campus.
College Sophomore 2013-02-18T01:25:37Z
The computers are easy and usually assessable to use. The only down part is the internet connection go in and out a lot. Also the printers usually do not work in the dorms
College Sophomore 2013-02-18T01:18:18Z
Parking on campus is easy and close to were you want to go. Due to the fat that it is a small school there enough to go around.

After everything that has happened at Mac the last couple of weeks, I am proud to say I am a bulldog. This school, despite all the tragedies and anger and blame that has been cast on others, has united in more ways. I am proud to call this my home. There are so many places here I can go to chill out. The people here are nice and they will let you live with them if you need some help. I mean, it's like a drive thru town, but every one is actually nice. There's christian bookstore/coffee shop The Well, and they have all these nifty little craft shops down Main street. On Euclid they have the parks and the lake which is beautiful. They a Walmart and a Dillon's and about twenty-seven Cinex's. It's kind of cool that the high school and college share the football field. We get to hear the band play and see the high school students play football and soccer. Every one here has a mutual respect for the students. We get discounts most places we go. I think that's pretty cool.

I don't party. What I have heard about the 18 and older bars is that they are pretty sketch. I would probably never go to one because that is not my scene. The college has a lot of stuff going on at night, such as: ultimate frisbee, sporting events, fourth meal, bingo, things of that nature.

The food is good and I love the kitchen staff. The only downfall is that there are not many kosher choices or gluten free choices. Every morning there is some variation of pork. I have been given the option to eat eggs, some form of potato and biscuits and gravy, if the gravy is cream gravy. Most of the time, people who are allergic to dairy, or gluten, or certain spices are left to the salad bar. What food I have had is good. Some times, the style of food runs into each other, but either way, I get to eat and I have to be thankful for that.

The town is not very big, so most of the kids can walk to whether they need to. However, in cases of snow or cold weather the challenge is greater. I know for a fact, that McPherson has a meetup page that helps kids get to church on Sundays. The only inconvenience is that if no one goes to a specific church, no one can take someone who goes to that specific church. That is really the only inconvenience. Otherwise, most of the kids make friends with people who have cars and are never in panic when they need to be taken to work or whatever have you.

It Was Not Too Hard, It Was Not Too Easy Either – As I look back on financial aid I find myself shuddering and laughing at the same time. Yes, to an extent financial was stressful, however I was blessed with money that I truly needed to get an education. All the forms and different websites made the whole process overwhelming. Filling everything out could have been simplified better, however, I understand the restrictions. I think it is truly a matter of finding a financial aid counselor at whatever college attending and going through it step by step no matter how long it takes. I can say that doing it on my own tested patience at times, but I never had too much trouble.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
