The school is absolutely amazing, there are courses that are questionable and seem pointless. Yet the school is absolutely amazing at helping students form meaningful connections.
The food is pretty questionable; along with having odd dining hours available. They also are extremely strict on what students can and can not do.
Coming in as a new college student, it was very helpful to have a student mentor walk alongside you as you were navigating a new experience. We were able to receive help from our mentor who had previously taken the core classes. Now, I get the experience to walk alongside new incoming freshmen and help them navigate college life. This position allows me to work with students and professors. As an education major, I love our education department. They are super helpful in what is expected and help us get in the classroom our first year of school. We also have a wonderful disability services coordinator who provides students with accommodations for their quizzes and exams. We also have a Dean of diversity who helps diverse students in their college experience.
Prospective students attending Grace College should be aware of adapting to roommate conflict and experiencing interactions with students with different beliefs. Students should understand how to navigate Moodle, which is where assignments are submitted. Students should also be aware that we have heated igloos for studying and a Starbucks on campus.
Grace College has an amazing community with smaller classes and great places right around to visit. There are so many little places that are a lot of fun to visit, and the programs are challenging and so educational. The counseling program in particular has amazing professors that tell personal stories to help you relate and learn better. It is truly an amazing place.
This is an expensive school that you need to apply for scholarships to attend. The educational programs are challenging, and you have to make sure that you are setting time to the side to get work done as well as to relax your mind.
Grace College has a great sense of community that will help any prospective student feel welcomed and ready for the college journey. Each major will certainly come with its challenges but the staff at Grace are ready to help all the students succeed in their future path.
Being an Elementary Education major can be tough at times and the workload can be stressful, but, in the end, these things learned in the classroom will help you be prepared to make a difference out in the community.
