High Level of Satisfaction in College Choice at MNU

Results of the just released College Student Report, produced by the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE), show students are glad they chose MidAmerica Nazarene University. Of first year students, 91% reported a favorable image of the institution and 89% of seniors would choose MNU again if they could start their college careers over.

NSSE is a part of the Center for Postsecondary Research in the Indiana University School of Education. NSSE annually collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about student participation in programs and activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college.

According to the NSSE web site, “Survey items on The College Student Report  represent empirically confirmed ‘good practices’ in undergraduate education. That is, they reflect behaviors by students and institutions that are associated with desired outcomes of college."

Other important measurements may show why MNU students are happy with their choice of a university.

  • 86% of first year students feel MNU places substantial emphasis on academics.
  • 81% of first year students felt MNU had a substantial commitment to their academic success.
  • 81% of first year students and 83% of seniors have a positive relationship with administrative personnel and offices.

Additionally, well over half of the students surveyed have participated in service learning at 57% for first year students and 67% for seniors. This percentage is significantly higher than like institutions in the survey.
