3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I know little about this, but BjU has important accreditations and students who want succeed. Some majors require interships, and the career services are willing to help.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: BJU parties are very unique.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Greenville is absolutely beautiful, with many great restaurants and shopping. The mall in town is also very nice. In regard to parks, the park downtown is the perfect place to hang out with friends or do homework; it even has a gorgeous waterfall.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Bob Jones is a very conservative Christian school, so the religious diversity is extremely low. However, BJ is very racially/ethnically diverse; in fact, during second semester, one of my roommates was half-German and the other was from South Korea. The students also come from varying economic backgrounds.

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Greenville is full of great restaurants that aren't too far from the school if you have time and transportation. In regard to fast food, there are a few great places right across the street from school, including a Starbucks.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm life at BJ is overall an awesome experience. The rooms are extremely small, with as many as four girls in one room, but the community is fantastic. The girls in my room were super sweet, and so were the resident staff. The dorms are also very, very clean; a complete white glove is done each semester and room check occurs every day. If you don't mind living in a small space, you will absolutely love dorm life.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere in Greenville varies from the very beautiful and refreshing, to some of the lower end districts. The downtown area is beautiful, with plenty of restaurants, shopping areas, museums, and Falls Park. Greenville also has an excellent library downtown with lots of branches throughout the city. Greenville has a lot of art galleries, including local artists and BJU's M&G. If you like hiking, you can go to Parris Mountain for the weekend.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There's a lot of off-campus dining options near my school. Within walking distance are a couple of Asian restaurants as well as your typical pizza place. There's also some good restaurants within a short driving distance near the mall and on Pelham road. Downtown there are a lot more nicer places to choose from with Italian, Indian, Greek, Chinese, and American cuisine. All of these places are relatively close to the campus and very in pricing.

College Senior

Nightlife: I wouldn't know what clubs or bars are near BJU because I'm not the partying type. I'm not interested in clubs or drinking simply because that just isn't my thing. I'm sure there are things available, but I don't go for that type of thing. I prefer going to icecream or coffee shoppes with my girlfriends. I rarely have time for outings though since I work on campus and have a heavy course load.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I have a hard time saying "it's great" or just "okay" at my school with the guys and girls. The girls I know here are super friendly and kind, and are always there for me when I'm in a bind. Most of the girls I would say are very mature and dedicated, while a few are not so focused on their studies. The guys here are kind of a mixed bag. There are plenty of nice, smarty, attractive and athletic guys, but those seem to be overshadowed by the awkward type -- the kind of guys who don't know how to read social cues, and are unfortunately the more vocal ones on campus.

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.
