Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2015

Asbury University was a great place to study. I came to Asbury in 2012 as an international student from Liberia and I loved the community environment. My professors were very helpful with my transition. The school has a very active student congress (Student government) and give students several opportunities to be a part of the growth and learning experience. I was a member of the school's Institutional Review Committee as well as member of the growing international student group. I graduated in 2015.

The graduate online program for Special Education focuses on both the academic portion of becoming a teacher and the spiritual component in being a person.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoy being able to take my classes online! Asbury has been helpful to me in my pursuit of my degrees in Spanish K-12 and ESL K-12. I do feel, however, that the faculty needs to embrace the "online community" idea a little more and realize that online students cannot come to campus to meet, nor utilize the library on campus, nor drop by to drop off papers. This has been my biggest struggle so far! However, overall, my first year has been a good experience!

Asbury's MSW program is small, so you get individualized attention and contact with the very experienced and helpful professors. It is priced competitively with MSW programs at public universities, although it is a private school. They place you at high quality internship sites so you get hands-on learning. The classes are mostly discussion based and are very interesting. They have a very high pass rate for their graduates who take the LCSW exam. You do not have to take the GRE to get in to their program. The cost of living is low in the small town of Wilmore, but the city environment and resources are easily accessible in Lexington, half an hour away. They do not offer scholarships from within the program, which is typical, as there is much less funding available for most graduate programs. Asbury does connect you to outside scholarship opportunities. They offer both part time and full time programs. I am loving Asbury's MSW program, and I highly recommend it.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2015

The graduate program that I chose at Asbury is the only one of it's kind. The best thing about it is that it is offered online so I can easily continue to teach and take classes. The only problem that I have is the availability of scholarships to graduate students. I couldn't find any that were available to me.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

It's small classes. I have 10 people in my class. Something that is good and sometimes now. The MSW program is fairly new. Which is good and bad. The college is in the country with nothing around it. The nearest restaurant is 10 minute away drive time. It's 45 minutes from LExington KY.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

Asbruy University's Principalship program has proven to be effective in preparing me for my future responsibilities as a school administrator. The program allows me to work closely with my current principal to see the inner workings of the profession I have chosen. I am consistantly made aware of the responsibilites and duties I will command as a principal. The staff at Asbury is willing to assist me in any way to ensure I have a high quality education and to prepare me for my future position as a school administrator. I would reccomend this program to anyone intrested in a principalship program.
