Malone Aces Student & Parent Satisfaction
A recent survey shows that Malone University scores high across the board in student and parent satisfaction.
According to the Student and Parent Satisfaction Inventories by Noel-Levitz:
Malone is Becoming an Institution of First Choice among Students
The survey showed a steady increase in students naming Malone University as their first choice, and a steady decline in naming Malone as a third choice.
"I felt so much support from my professors," says Richelle (Milburn) Richardson '08, '11. "They pray for you, and they are really committed to helping you succeed."
Malone is Able to Meet Student Expectations
The importance students placed on campus services increased at all levels from 2009 to 2013. According to the study, Malone University students are satisfied with all aspects of these campus services they consider highly important.
Malone University is Strong Compared to Peer Groups
Compared with Council of Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU) and National Four-Year Private Universities (N4YPU), Malone is strong in both parent and student satisfaction.
Malone Chooses Path of Continuous Improvement
In comparing results from 2009 and 2013, Malone University shows steady growth in all levels of student satisfaction. In addition, compared with the Institution's peers, Malone is strong in critical areas of student and parent satisfaction.
University officials say, "While it is appropriate to celebrate these strengths, it is also our commitment to work diligently toward continuous improvement in satisfaction levels of our students and their parents."
For families such as the Milburn family, this news is no surprise. They claim that Malone University is in their blood.
John Milburn '07, '13 is perhaps Malone's only alumnus who can say that he attended college with his wife...and his daughter... and his son. In that timespan, he earned both his bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing science - while completing three tours of duty as a medic sergeant in Iraq.
John's wife, Christine '07 and '09, a nurse practitioner at Dover-Phila Family Medicine, fought cancer during her master's program. His daughter, Richelle Richardson '08 and '11, had a daughter while completing each of her degrees. John II '11 and '13, celebrated the birth of his son, John III while finishing his MSN.
"You might say Malone is in our blood," says John I with a chuckle. "We've been through a lot, but we've really enjoyed going through the programs together."
