One thing I have really appreciated about Maranatha Baptist University is that my teachers care about me as a person. Because it is a somewhat smaller school (and also because they are such great people), they often have time to talk about not only your academics but also your life in general whenever you come up to them, and if they don't have time right then, they will find a time that works for both of you. I have had an amazing experience at Maranatha and would recommend it highly. I have learned so many things during the two years I have already been there, and had a lot of fun experiences as well. One disclaimer is that it is a Baptist university, so they do teach Baptist values and expect students to behave in a manner consistent with Baptist values. If you are a Christian, and especially if you hold to most or all Baptist beliefs, you will find Maranatha a great fit. I personally have loved my time at Maranatha so far and am looking forward to loving the rest of the time I spend there.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

This is a Baptist school, so it will be easier for you to fit in if you are Baptist. Not that you will be thrown out of the school if you are from some other denomination, but they do emphasize Baptist values. However, if you do hold to Baptist beliefs, there aren't a lot of negative things I can associate with this school.
