Off-Campus Housing: I wouldnt know. I stay on campus but my friends have really nice housing off campus and they seem to enjoy it.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are alot of computers available and the wifi is always working.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few options however everything is far up the street and they close early.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I really am unfamiliar with this topic.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: My first tip would be to arrive early as possible. My second tip is do your research on FASA. For years I had to go under my parents income but they don't help me financially nor have they been any support. They make too much so my financial aid was based off that

Academics: There is very few biology education majors. With this major/degree anything is possible, you have so many different opportunities to add to your certificate. You have to roads to take which will never leave you jobless, education and or medical field. You are required to take the basic classes needed for medical school as well as a few educational classes to prepare you for the classroom and your students. Faculty is wonder and they are truly there for us and want us to succeed in every way possible. On the educational side of this, an internship is required every semester as for the science side internships are optional and only offered during the summer.

Off-Campus Housing: There isn't any off campus housing available for full time students, only part time students.

4 College Junior

Majors: In order to be accepted as an education major, you have to become certified to teach in Florida. Once you take the general knowledge test($150), you will be admitted into upper division. In upper division you are required to take the professional test(200) and the subject area test(200). You also have to have an internship each semester and you are required to complete a desired amount of hours. Since I have no support system, I struggle with studying for the three test so that I can be admitted to upper division. Also the price of the test are expensive so, I struggle with finding the money to take the test.

5 College Junior

Majors: I am majoring in Biology education. I will graduate from Bethune Cookman University in hopes of attending Meharry Medical school, where I will get my Masters degree in Microbiology and Immunology then get my PH.D in Pathology. If I have difficulty getting into Meharry I will be teaching at my local high school until the chance to reapply to Meharry crosses me again.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: It's the average college campus.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's really below the average campus.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: I hope for change in all the categories listed above.

3 College Junior

Diversity: I like the diversity. Our intake on international students is increasing.

3 College Junior

Computers: We have at least 2 computer labs in each academic building. We also have a 25 page printing quote which is daily but does not roll over to the next day. The network is poor. The Internet is always down and it's slow. Having a personal computer is optional and not necessary. We have a computer lab, which is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.

College Junior

Nightlife: I am not familiar with the nightlife. I have no support system so I work and study in my spare time. Even if I had the time I would be able to afford it.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The cost of off campus dining is what the average middle class family would pay at any fast food restaurant. The convenience is really poor. There is not any restaurant in the area, which offers student discounts and we don't have a variety to choose from. It's nothing healthy. Just all fats and oily foods.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Here at Bethune Cookman University we do not have any Greek housing. Greek life is considered very hard to get into. On a social level the Greeks are weak and only advertise events when scouting for new members, which is very seldom. Non Greeks see them as important but not active on campus or the community.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Make sure you always are up to date on your financial aid. If you have any questions about aid talk to your financial aid counselor ASAP! The longer you wait, the less likely they will help you.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: BCU does not give any sort of transportation, however Daytona does have an airport and shuttles that go to Orlando airport. Buses around town? better off getting a car to do anything.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The greek life is not all that at BCU. Every year a lot are getting suspended for periods of time and are not that affecting to the campus. They do serve doing community servie on some weekends, but besides that they don't do anything. The greek life is watered down. If you think you're gonna get good amounts of greek parties you're mistaken. Events on campus are very limited as well.

Local Atmosphere: majority of the time you see a lot of tourist. The students also tend to stay away from locals around campus but Daytona is a tourist town, not college town.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Being that its an HBCU, blacks are the majority, the other races are very limited and they often stick with each other and separate themselves from the main crowd

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Besides Daytona being bipolar, the weather is great

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Just make sure you're taking all the right courses! BCU is good for letting you fall behind and not graduating on time.
