Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

I have been a student as Lewis University throughout my Bachelors and Masters Degree and am currently working toward my Doctor of Nursing Degree. The majority of my classes now are online and I am able to continue to attend this university even though I live out of state. I stay connected with my instructors on a regular basis. The University provides flexibility for students to continue with their education through busy life situations such as full time work, parenting and so on. The institution has available staff who respond to questions and needs within a reasonable time frame and are very helpful in assisting with needed resources. They have work study programs which I was able to participate in during my undergraduate years which helped me financially. They are a Catholic and Lasallian University who's mission is faith based and their student population is diverse and they have associations and peer connection to fulfill ethnic and social needs. The College of Nursing and Health Professions have excellent programs and classes flexible in hours to meet most anyone's needs. They also offer satellite campuses around the Chicago land area to accommodate students further. The DNP program is offered online. They have IT support that go above and beyond to meet any technical needs in order to successfully review and complete the online assignments. I would recommend this University because of the reasons described above, in addition to the desire the instructors have to ensure each students' success. Not to mention, the campus is beautiful with many areas available for socialization and learning.

Being a student is hard so much hard work but it the same time, it's fun especially in the time you accomplished your degree

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

I was a part of a cohort group which were all students who I worked with. It was really awesome because we were all in the healthcare field of management so the material was related to our field. I learned so much from the comments and projects of the students I worked with from throughout the organization. Great environment for learning on the job so to speak.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2018

Lewis University's Organizational Leadership has really stretched my ability to learn and expand my knowledge on leading others. I have been able to bring the information I've learned into my everyday job and have seen a change in the way I work with others since I've started the program. I highly recommend this program and school if you're looking to advance as a leader.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

In Illinois, BSN school nurses do not get a teacher salary. We have to go back and get a school nurse certificate. Lewis University combines the school nurse certificate program toward the MSN. For a just 20 more credits I could earn my masters which is what my long term goal was anyway. This school has allowed me to speed up this process and save money. The degree is directly correlated with my work, which is so helpful.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2017

The faculty support and accessibility, as well as the quality of education at Lewis University is excellent. The student diversity and surrounding area leave a little to be desired.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros are that the program is all online and is wonderful for students pursuing a masters and balancing a full time job. Cons are that it is hard sometimes to really connect with students and teachers in the online environment but Lewis does a good job with discussion boards.
