5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I absolutely LOVE living in the Highlands. It is a wonderful city full of great shopping, great food, and allows you to diverge into other cultures. There are many different shops and restaurants from other cultures, such as Indian, Thai, Mexican, etc. Bardstown Road is a great place to go walking, sight seeing, and hang out with friends. You will meet all sorts of friendly and interesting people in the Highlands. It is a great place to live!

Transportation: A shuttle runs practically all day at Bellarmine University. The shuttle picks up and transports students all over campus- even to parts of our campus that are five minutes away and across the street. It is not necessary to have a car on campus; however, it is very handy to have your car on campus that way you can drive outside the city of Highlands and into or away from Louisville. All students are allowed to have their cars on campus and can get a parking pass if they choose.

Drug Safety: Not very many students at Bellarmine partake is drug use. It is hardly noticeable because the groups of student that use drugs is extremely small. Alcohol use is much more visible than any type of drug use. On the weekends, you will see many students carrying concealed drinks in their hands, leaving campus to go to the nearest party. This is not to say that EVERY student goes to parties or drinks alcohol; however, a large portion of students do. Alcohol use in the dorms is strictly against policy, and students are fined and forced to complete an alcohol/drug education class online if caught breaking the rules. When students leave campus and go to off-campus parties, mostly everyone is drinking, and it can be somewhat awkward if you are not drinking and are not good friends with the people at the party. I do not believe that peer pressure is a huge problem. Some students may feel pressured to drink alcohol, but as a whole, I do not see it as an issue.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: At Bellarmine University, the strictness of policies is very beneficial in keeping students safe. However, there are some policies, such as the parking policy, where the consequences of breaking the policy result in an outrageous citation. Overall, I do not feel that Bellarmine's policies negatively affect student's academic lives or social lives.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Bards town road is always fun.

2 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Lots and lots of pot smokers, but I guess that's all colleges?

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There are a lot more girls than guys and the guys that are here aren't that great so girls tend to look at U of L's campus for possible suitors

4 College Freshman

Academics: A lot of people in the major and really good curriculum and improving with each passing year

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not too bad but need a car to get there

4 College Freshman

Majors: If I could do it over again I would go to the University of Pittsburgh but if I stay at Bellarmine for PT school I am guaranteed a job in Louisville.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Should not be as hard as the nursing program

3 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is becoming more diverse

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Everything is great but a bigger athletic and student center would be great! The campus is beautifully and has many green spaces and the activities are normally really fun.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: All the tshirts and free stuff that we get from activities and sporting events

2 College Freshman

Weather: When it snows, the whole world stops and everything is closed except dining and the workout facility.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It's okay but they seem to never be at the dorms when you need them.

College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life doesn't have much of a presence.

4 College Junior

Majors: It is straightforward to get into the program. There are simple criteria and it is clearly communicated on the school web site. The Accelerated Nursing program caters to students seeking a second degree. In which case, financial aide can become a challenge. There are limited scholarships for the program through the university.

4 College Junior

Majors: Despite financial aide challenges and the stresses of the Accelerated Nursing program, you are prepared well for the career you are being education for. You will be competitive in the job market.

3 College Junior

Diversity: Bellarmine is a catholic university in a southern state. Looking at the glass half-full there is tolerance of people of other political and religious beliefs and sexual orientation in most cases if there isn't acceptance.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Biking is doable but it is not common and there are very few bike paths if any. Zip cars aren't as prevalent as you would find in the Northwest. Public transportation is dismally unavailable outside of the downtown area/ major areas of Louisville. You would end up walking a few miles before using public transportation in most cases.

College Junior

Athletics: Bellarmine isn't a big athletics school. There are good facilities for what little concentration there is on athletics.

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather is more temperate than many other places. Louisville winters aren't as extreme as some places to the north-even as close as Chicago. Summers aren't as extreme as you would find in many other southern states. It is not a part of Tornado Alley but there are tornadoes in Kentucky with the biggest month in April.

College Junior

Campus Housing: On campus housing appears updated and comfortable. I will be living off campus as that is the only option for continuing education students.

4 College Junior

Nightlife: There is usually something to do. There are regular clubs and events. Late night transportation is limited to cars. Taxis are rarely used.
