Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Megan from Woodstock, GA
  • I am a past student here

    I enjoyed the how close I became with all the students at Shorter. It's a pretty small school so your around the same all the time. I also played a sport which really helped with getting to know people. Everyone at Shorter that enjoys it is involved in the school someway somehow. If you go here and aren't involved you probably won't enjoy it.

    If you don't mind a small campus, it is nice. I prefer a larger student population.
