3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's not terrible but it's not great either. My biggest complaint is the room size. Five beds set up in tripe bunk and double bunk bed form take up most up the room. All of the remaining wall space has been covered in closets, desks, and cabinetry. This makes storage easy but if you want to add furniture it get cramped very fast. And if you get stuck in one of the triple bunks don't plan to study in your bed, ever. The space between the mattress and top is so narrow I have hit my head many times just trying to get out of the bed in the morning.

Health & Safety: Our campus is extremely safe. We are a gated campus and after dusk all gates are locked aside from the main entrance which has a guard on duty 24/7. We also have a student employed public safety division that patrols day and night to ensure that all buildings are properly secured when not in use. They are quick to respond and very friendly. With the small student body most of the students know at least one officer personally and this makes it much easier to call in and not feel embarrassed. They are willing to help with anything and I mean anything. They have been known to give rides across campus at night jsut to ensure those students are warm and feel safe.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Outside of race and ethnicity there isn't much diversity. This is a private Christian college we are talking about. Because of this most everyone is of similar religious and political backgrounds. The ones that aren't however, are by no means shunned. In fact anyone that seems a bit out is actually that much more accepted and integrated into groups to make sure that they have a strong group of friends that they can go to if anyone does try to say or do something negatively towards them.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: BJU is very tight on the party scene. The zero tolerance for illegal substance abuse is no joke. They will not hesitate to kick students out that are willing to break the rules or laws for the sake of fun.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The atmosphere on campus is so welcoming on campus that it makes it possible to study or hangout practically wherever you want. The only rule is that we stay off of the grass so that it can grow and stay healthy. I have seen students studying in the music halls simply because they love the sounds of rehearsal and even seen other students taking advantage of the comfortable furniture in the library to catch a nap between classes. Everywhere you go students and staff are willing to help and make sure you are comfortable where you are.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although I tend to struggle academically my teachers are always more than willing to help or find ways to make the studying easier for me. They make sure that they are always available during their office hours and are very good about emailing their students about any conflicts or schedule changes to these hours beforehand. The teachers care so much about student success and making sure that we enjoy the classes that even after failing one of my courses I was more than happy to retake the class.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have not heard much from the alumni outside of the ones that work at the school itself.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived in or visited the interior of any of the housing options.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's the same food nearly everyday. We can choose between pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads, "american", or stir-fry. This wouldn't be nearly as bad if the options had more options but when the stir-fry is only meat and four other ingredients it starts to taste bland. If you don't have time for lunch you are not allowed to take from the commons themselves. You must go to the gym and pay for a brown bag lunch that for some reason costs the same amount as the commons buffet. And since we pay with "swipes" instead of money we don't have the off campus dining option that other schools have nor can we use these swipes in the campus snack shop.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The university has only recently reinstated varsity sports but the teams are doing wonderfully. We now have soccer, basketball, golf and track teams and the intramural sports seem to be doing better with this new addition. More people are going to watch their brothers and sister compete against each other and some people are finding the gym to be a great place for homework with all of the action going on.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a nice diversity right across the road from campus. A short walk will allow you to choose between Southern barbeque, pizza, mexican, fast food, or if you have a car you can travel to a dew ethnic cuisine restaurants down the road.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload of major never overwhelmed me. The professors were so helpful, and very understanding. They were willing to help you in what ever way they could. I cannot say enough good about them. Registration was a little tricky and confusing, but my advisor helped me every step of the way and really helped relieve the stress from me. There was a study group for pretty much anything, and students really enjoy getting together and studying.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I think what makes my program so unique is the people in the program. It truly felt like a family away from family. I can say without hesitation that the Journalism and Mass Communication majors are the best!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms on campus allow for making great friendships. The atmosphere in the dorms is different for every dorm. Each one is great in its own way. Housing requests are usually honored, with the exception of some cases.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The ethnic and racial backgrounds of the students are very diverse. However the backgrounds of the students don't affect relationships or friendships among the students. Overall, there is a very united feeling among the student body.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Downtown Greenville is amazing. I went there many times for walking or just hanging out. There is a cute little park not too far from the school that offers a quiet reprieve for homework. Downtown Greenville is culturally diverse and often has exhibits of every kind. You won't be bored going down there. The attitude of the locals towards students is mostly good. Some of the locals have preconceived ideas about the students, but if they actually got to know us they would see that we are not as bad as they might think.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is literally every kind of thing to eat off campus. There is an awesome organic store off campus called "Trader Joes" that offers a massive variety of healthy, organic foods. With the variety of dining options comes variety of prices. There is a place for everyone's budget.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food there is very good. The negative about it is that it repeats. However at the start of every semester the school gives each student food money, they call it "Bruins Bucks." You can use this in the snack shop and store for any food product.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have not really been in this program at this school long enough to offer an applicable review.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program! The other students, the teachers, the faculty in this major are so amazing. They really push you to do your best. They see you potential and push you to get there. They become friends and mentors along the way. The further into the program you get the more one on one it becomes, and the teachers have time to really help you fine-tune your skills and abilities.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: School spirit is second to none! Especially when playing particular teams. Our girls soccer team won nationals. Our boys/girls basketball teams are not the best, but they definitely are pushing to be, so watch out!

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: The school, while not having the most to offer students on campus, is trying to improve and make the students campus life a lot more enjoyable. This last semester they had a GlowRun on campus, and that experience was huge among the students. They will be opening, hopefully this fall, The Den, which will be a coffee and studying hangout place! The academic program there is very competitive and the teachers really push you to do your best. Everyone is willing to help you in whatever area you need help with. The teachers are friendly, and the majority of them make an attempt to remember their students names-no matter how big the class is.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I worked out every Monday-Wednesday-Friday after my classes were done for the day. The workout room was great! It was packed with lots of great equipment. The library is HUGE, and it is where I did a lot of studying. The gym where are the Bruin's basketball games are held is top-notch.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The relationships made here are some of the best!

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have had an intership, but I have heard some students that were able to get one and really enjoyed it.

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.
