What do others say about Midway U?
Hear from some of our students.
“I’m Phillipa Asherwood, most people call me Pippa though. I’m from Chisamba, Zambia, it’s just a small little farming community. I’m double majoring in Biology and Equine Science, minoring in Chemistry.”
“Academics-wise, I think Midway has helped me so much, just the small class sizes, that interaction that you have with your teachers is so personal and they’re always there for you if you need anything,”
I think that it’s just the feel of the place in general, it’s just so homey and I think that’s a big thing for international students. There are so many universities that are huge and you go there and you feel lost like you have to walk miles just to get to your classroom Whereas here everything is so small and it just feels like you’re part of a big family and it sounds cliche but that honestly is what it’s like. You know everyone here and everyone’s willing to help and so I think that’s an important part from an international side, is just having that home away from home, and you definitely get that feel at Midway.
“My name is Maxime Noel. I’m from France and I came to Midway because I’ve been recruited by Tim Wolz, who is the coach of the men’s soccer team.”
“I’ve been learning a lot and meeting a lot of new people - learning how to know the different cultures and everything. So I think that’s a really good thing to step out of your comfort zone and meet new people and go to a new place like that.
It’s like home for me now because I’ve been spending two years here. I’ve spent every day with my teammates and my classmates, so every time I go back home, I’m like, ‘I kind of miss that place’. And the campus is I think the right size, you know? Not too many students and people are really friendly and welcoming
