Overall Rating

The Short Version Great Pre-Med program. Professors are fantastic lecturers who want you to succeed. There is plenty of financial aid for gifted students and those who need it. The school is quite liberal for a religious institution. The students are mostly normal people who are a little more wholesome than most. Though Spokane is not exactly a tourist destination of the West, there’s a lot to do on campus. The campus is breathtakingly beautiful and there are tons of new facilities.
