College of Health Sciences, 2022

The education here is fast-paced and it’s very good. But, it’s a very positive atmosphere here as well. We all help each other.

Allison Rushing, D.P.T.

College of Health Sciences, 2012

Being a student at Midwestern University was definitely hard work and fast-paced, but it was not competitive here. Everyone just wanted to help each other and in that aspect it was just really welcoming. People studied together and shared ideas.
