4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The people in my dorm were very nice and encouraging.

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.

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.

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.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I really like that there are so many girls around to just fellowship with and enjoy life with.

The word "crowded" best describes the campus housing at BJU. New students should prepare to be open-minded and patient with others upon arrival. Usually, three or four people are going to be sharing a room for a year, so packing less is considerate to your roommates. Even though the dorms are maintained by facility crews, in the South, bugs are unavoidable; they get into the residence halls and rooms. Ants, spiders, and cockroaches are the main bugs that visit students. Most residents complain about their roommates, crowded rooms, and noisy neighbors. However, after living a year together, the students wish they could be roommates again.

There is a prayer group meeting every night at 10:30 p.m., and it lasts for 15 minutes. There are three to four rooms on a hall that make up a prayer group. Depending on the prayer captain and the assistant prayer captain, each prayer group differs. Some nights are spiritually lifting, and other nights are tiring, especially after studying. A lot of students get to know each other through prayer groups and think it helps them survive at BJU. The prayer room rotates rooms every week. Students close the night with sharing a lesson for the day, funny stories, and prayer requests. Dorm life is just another phase of a student’s life. He or she learns how to cope with different types of people and become a more patient person.
