4 College Freshman

Majors: Engineering. One of the hardest majors in BJU.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Students are supposed to live on campus unless they live with a relative. Housing is being improved each year.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: BJU seems very strict--which isn't that big of a switch for me because my parents rules are almost exactly the same. Sometimes, however, it would be nice to be allowed to wear pants to classes (especially in the winter time!!!!!) and it would be nice if we could be allowed (at least during some specified hours--like Grove City allows) to visit opposite gender dorm rooms, because it would be so much more comfortable and easy to hang out with your boyfriend/girlfriend if they were tired and just wanted to relax in their dorm room instead of having to go to the library to be with you or the snack shop or student center.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I love the artsyness of my major--teachers encourage freedom of expression, divergent thinking, and free spiritedness. Nothing is too outlandish for them because what seems outlandish to adults may be perfectly logical to a 5 year old. I also love that teachers encourage you to do your best work within the constraints of class projects and presentation. Artsy + Outside the Box + Well defined rules = a splendid project!

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: I love that you can meet anyone from anywhere at any time, and become friends with them no matter what. No matter who you are, you will find friends, because the teachers and students really try to reach out and include not just the individual but your personal life and accept and love you no matter what.

5 College Sophomore

Weather: Greenville weather is ridiculously sporadic, from 80 degrees one day to 55 the next day in spring, but it helps to keep life interesting, unpredictable, and spontaneous.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have never had an internship at BJ, but I have enjoyed working at the CDC with the children. I learn so much, not just from working with the kids, but from observing the teachers. Pay is fairly average, but it's sometimes difficult because people get sick so quickly that you don't always have much flexibility with work hours.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love the education major! It gives you so many opportunities to be in real-life classroom settings working with the kids and it pushes you outside your comfort zone and challenges you to make mistakes, learn from those mistakes, and really get involved with the kids and the teachers and helping out.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I loved Gold Rush Daze-and I love the caring atmosphere of BJU.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: I love the mac lab downstairs in the art building. Also the network tends to be almost immediate connection, and fairly reliable 99 % of the time.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love the number of apartment houses right next to campus. They also have a lot of rental houses in the area that would be convenient for people wanting to split cost and room 4 or 5 students in one larger house.

1 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Since we have a 10:30 curfew, we're not allowed to be out past 10:30 without prior permission

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Nobody really cares what your ethnicity is. Everyone is kind of like a big family together and they treat you just the same no matter what race you are.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I love the variety of coffee shops/study hangouts like starbucks and Atlanta Bread near school.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: I can find a parking spot close by 9 days out of 10.

4 College Freshman

Computers: they are available, but I am thankful to have my own - it is much more convenient

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: i have more closet and drawer space here than at home and I am thankful to have clean roommates!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: it is expensive to go here, so more opportunities for assistance would be good.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i dont get off much, but there are great fast food and dining options

3 College Freshman

Transportation: we have a bus to walmart and the mall every saturday

3 College Freshman

Diversity: we have students from all over the world. at lunch you can hear conversations in 3-4 languages at tables around you!

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: It is great because there is no "nightlife". we are studying here and take education seriously

5 College Freshman

Majors: you are given an excellent education, but you get out of it what you put in. You will have to work hard and want it!

5 College Freshman

Majors: we are given incredible opportunities and the professors love what they do and really invest in us as students.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: they take all precautions to secure campus and are very helpful

BJU is known as the world's most unusual school, and it appeals to driven young Christian students from all over the place. BJU challenges students in many ways, fostering academic, spiritual, and personal growth. A student’s first challenge starts on the first day of school. Enormous amounts of syllabi overwhelm the students, but semesters fly by because of all the hard work. Classes at BJU demand students’ best efforts, and the motto of every class is "to become more like Christ." Students appreciate BJU’s Christian atmosphere, and soon realize that the University’s challenges will only help them grow as people.

Students love and respect the University for not only academic excellence, but also for its caring and loving faculty. The faculty helps students proceed and graduate from college successfully. Overall, BJU alumni tend to find a job right out of the nest and adjust to the real world quickly since BJU prepared them through tactics like a strict dress code. Attending school makes the students feel like they are a part of BJU history. When entering BJU as a student, the journey of life has begun.
