3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Again, I don't know enough about this to discuss it.

5 College Junior

Majors: It was not difficult to get into the Biblical studies program. I expressed interest, and they let me into the program.

4 College Junior

Majors: I haven't been in the program long enough to fully reap the benefits unique to the Biblical Studies department.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The campus and the students are protected by the policies imposed by Belhaven. They are not overbearing or unfair, but rather are implemented and enforced for the good of the university at large.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Typical students attend Belhaven. There is nothing particularly different about Belhaven students than there is at any other school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I cannot express how much I love the academics at Belhaven. The quality of the courses are out-standing, one of the best in the nation in fact. The professors are well versed in their respective fields and are genuinely concerned with the success of all of their students. The majority of professors at Belhaven do anything and everything they can to help students in the learning careers as well as their spiritual walk with the Lord. Class sizes are relatively small. At most they there may be forty students in a class room for one of the general education classes. Other classes for more specialized subjects are much smaller. They run about ten to fifteen students per class. I love Belhaven for its academics!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't know too much about the job or internship prospects offered at Belhaven, but I can say that the career center/services provided are top of the line. All of the professionals in the career services group are extremely helpful and friendly to all students who are serious about their education and their future careers!

4 College Junior

Athletics: The students at Belhaven are very proud of our sports teams and do make a solid effort to support them at games and on campus. The facilities provided to the teams are excellent and the gym used by the rest of us is also well maintained.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Students from all over the world come to Belhaven for our business program as well as our arts program. A large portion of Korean, Chinese, English, Scottish, Spanish, etc come for our business program. Also, the Belhaven soccer team alone attracts a lot English players.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life at Belhaven. As I mentioned a couple of pages back, Belhaven is not a party school, so fraternities and sororities are not a part of our life.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The student life is wonderful at Belhaven. This is not a party school, though, so those looking for a wild party would feel bored at Belhaven. Students are more engaged with having a good time of community and fellowship would enjoy Belhaven because there are games and events hosted by the athletic departments, concerts from the music department, plays from the theater department, and so on. Belhaven also has a well-equipped auxiliary gym for all full-time students. The services offered at the library are also practical, helpful, and encouraging to all kinds of students. The art gallery is beautiful and intriguing year round, and there are tons of clubs or groups one can join at any time of the semester.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: Belhaven is lacking with regards to food options on campus. Unless it is a Discover Day, the food is not that tasty or even warm. Often times breakfast is served cold although it is supposed to be hot. On another note, the hours kept by the dining hall aren't very flexible on the weekends. For example, the kitchen doesn't even serve breakfast on Saturday mornings. Also on Sunday nights they only serve dinner from five P.M. to six P.M. It is not surprising to be hungry on the weekends, but one can always keep food in your room.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Because tuition is so expensive, it is very difficult to find all the help you need. It is also difficult for athletes because they are switching to Division III from NAIA next year and will not be offering athletic scholarships anymore. A high ACT score is definitely necessary to get good scholarships. Tuition and housing costs so much, but that's why you have you work hard with outside scholarships for help!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports play a huge part at Belhaven. Students really get involved with all of the sports that are played there.

Intramurals and varsity sports are both a huge part of the social aspect of the school. Everyone is encouraged to participate in a sport, whether it's playing it, cheering the team on, or just supporting it in general! Our men's soccer team wins the national championship almost every year. So you can imagine how crazy the fans get at soccer games!

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The cafeteria is my favorite place on campus. The only problem is the hours on the weekends, but besides that it's great. They have a wide variety of different foods to choose from, and it changes daily. The quality of the meat could be better, but then again where is actually good? There is no meal plan required, it is all covered in room and board fees. This makes it so easy for students. They could just eat every meal on campus!

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The only rule that i can think of that is super strict is No guys in the girls dorm (lobbies only) and vice versa. Drug use is low, and very little drinking on campus.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone accepts each other. Because of sports, there are a lot of different races and many international students. But we were all made in God's image so I think by the time someone graduates, they have learned that.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The campus is GORGEOUS. It seems very small if you just look at it, but there is so much free space that allows you to breathe. The school facilities are so nice. One of the halls was just renovated and looks very new and nice. The cafeteria is the best spot on campus. You can sit inside or sit on the patio that overlooks the tennis courts. You always see students just sitting in the grass studying in the most random places. On campus there is a gym, fitness room, tennis courts (soon to be covered with a new on-campus apartment building), and soccer field. The baseball and football fields are right down the road from campus. The performance arts building is so pretty and filled with lovely art. Down the road is the Center for the Arts, which holds theater shows, musical performances and Chapel. The student center is where all of the admission offices are and also where the cafeteria is! It also houses the bookstore, campus mail room, and more study spots. The BAC (Belhaven Activities Committee) plans great campus activities and fun dances. There are also intramural sports. The Belhaven campus is seriously too gorgeous to describe.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I love Jackson, Mississippi. I have always wanted to move there. Everyone seems so sweet and they have GREAT eating and shopping. The country clubs are so nice, and there are lots of gorgeous houses.

1 College Freshman

Nightlife: Belhaven is a Christian school with no Greek Life, so parties are rare. We do have homecoming dance, spring formal, several little party things, but no big nightlife in Jackson, MS.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is one of my favorite parts about Belhaven. I am staying in Gillespie residential Hall, which is the newest of all the residential halls. It has good sized rooms, great resident staff, a kitchen on the top floor, and gorgeous view of the lake and easy to get to the Cafeteria from! They gave four stories and one bathroom per two bedrooms. Caldwell Hall is another of the women's Halls. It is a little older, but still pretty nice. It is close to the soccer field and the Arts center. The rooms are a little bit smaller but still a good size. They have community bathrooms, three stories and the more artistic students stay there. Helen White hall is for upperclassmen (Ladies only though) and I haven't actually seen that one. There are two guys Halls: Robertson hall and Wells hall. I haven't seen those either, but I have heard they are very nice. Of all the women's dorms, I would say Gillespie is the best. I just love the look of it, the spaciousness, the social aspect, everything is just so nice. There is free laundry, a kitchen, and every room has their own sink, whereas at Caldwell they have to walk down the hall just to wash their hands! All of the dorms cost the same, so you have to really know where you want to stay. The housing process is so easy, if of course you get in your application early.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I wish we had Greek Life at Belhaven, but we don't. Being a part of a sorority would be so much fun! Having "sisters" that you can do everything with just sounds so amazing. Belhaven is a smaller school and also a Christian school, so I don't know if we will ever get Greek Life, but I would definitely suggest it!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love all of the professors that I have met so far. And from what I have heard, they are wonderful. They help you if you need it, and they love the Lord. They are great at what they do and they really do care about you. The course selection at Belhaven is actually quite large, considering it's such a small school. Several classes are extremely small (twenty people at the most), but other are rather large.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I know that they work well with students to get internships and work-study jobs. I'm not quite sure about how well people are recruited on campus, but I'm sure it's not hard to get a job.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: It was the most easiest than any other colleges I attended.
