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

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 Freshman

Athletics: I love being able to go to Bruins games as well as society games! It gives students something to do and it's a great way to fellowship and have fun with friends!

3 College Junior

Athletics: They try their best to make the DFH a nice place with keeping everything updated.

BJU does not have an intercollegiate sports team. However, sports are very competitive within the Greek societies. The disadvantage of this is that students get into having spirit for their society rather than for the school. The advantage is that all students can get involved with sports. In other words, they do not have to be a phenom to play sports. Sports programs include badminton, basketball, flag football, pingpong, racquetball, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and water polo. Once a year, BJU has a soccer match with Furman University. Another example of school spirit is Gold Rush Daze. Once every four years, BJU hosts this school sports event. All students and faculty participate and compete as red and blue teams, respectively. The event brings the student body together and boosts school spirit.

Athletic facilities are kept up-to-date and clean, with a swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tracks, fitness centers, spa, tennis court, and an aerobic room available to students. However, a lot of facilities run by female and male hours. Some female students complain that the men’s fitness center is bigger and better. Overall, BJU offers a lot of fitness equipment to keep their students healthy.

School Spirit
Every four years, BJU has Gold Rush Daze, which ignites school spirit within the community. Another event that gets spirit going is when BJU plays soccer against Furman University.
Getting Tickets
BJU does not charge for sports games. Usually, there are reserved spots for alumni.
Best Place to Take a Walk
BJU does not have trails on the campus, and it is very dangerous to take a walk right off of campus. However, downtown Greenville, which is only three miles away from campus, offers the most romantic walking route with delicious dessert places.
