Bolivia Immersion Lets Maddie See Another Side of Healthcare

Posted on Tue, Nov 08, 2016

At Nebraska Methodist College, it’s not enough for our students to just learn about healthcare. So that they get an experience that truly embraces the core tenets of our school’s philosophy, students immerse themselves in the healthcare field.

Choosing a Dorm: Why It Matters For College Selection

Posted on Tue, Aug 23, 2016

It’s shocking to think that most students approach choosing a dorm as an afterthought. When you add it all up, you’re actually going to spend far more time in your residence hall than you are any other place on campus.

Your living situation can and will have an impact on your capacity to succeed while in college. Persons who are forced to reside in substandard conditions that aren’t conducive to good study habits may find themselves struggling to keep up with assignments and maintain exceptional grades. Or, they simply won’t have as much fun (or they’ll have too much fun).
