Student Reviews and Ratings for Shorter College

Overall Rating:

A complete and total disaster. I spent two years at this place and with the exception of the friends I made, it was a terrible experience from day one. Do not send your children here, do not come here yourself, do not even consider visiting. It’s ruled by a president who acts and rules like a dictator who uses threats and retaliation to get his way...every time on everything. The depleted and sad staff are either tied to the Rome area, working as a ministry, or too poor quality to work anywhere else. I came here with certain expectations of excellentence, I was disappointed at every possible area imaginable at this place. The school has no funding for anything. Not for sports, not for academics, not for student life. No staff get paid enough to care and they accept whoever they can as students so the academic rigor is non-existent. The facilities are dated and remind students that they live in a second class place. Everything is wrong with this place, God is not blessing this university. Soon the Rome area will have about 100 acres of land and empty buildings for sale on shorter avenue. What a waste.

Ok we had to come here for my daughter's testing and all I can say it's a mess we could not find the building she had to be in so we ask staff we were told to ask our teacher. What? Told her why we were here and then she told us to ask some one else so we did that lead to another finally found where we needed to be. Then latter my wife fell down some steps that are busted (note most steps out side are busted) it was 5 yes 5 people latter for us to get a med kit to clean the lose gravel out of her hand we had to go to the presidents office to get any thing to help.This is a university I laugh more like an out of date unkempt, dirty, nursing home. I would NOT send my kids even if they paid me.Even to the point the grounds are not kept up this place really is this bad.

The school is extremely expensive and the teachers are terrible. The student money you’re suppose to get back they will take most of it and give b.s reasons why you aren’t getting your full refund. They also, charged me for a semester I wasn’t even signed up for. They “sent” my loan money back and said I have to pay them $3000. I have talked to several ppl who would not help or fix the issue even when I have emails showing I wasn’t signed up for any classes and was told everything would be fine. They don’t even deserve one star honestly!!
