5 College Junior

Facilities: It feels like I'm in the Victorian era (that's the good one, right?).

3 College Senior

Facilities: The campus is very nice and well kept, but some of the buildings and facilities are very outdated. A lot of renovations are being made, but it's a slow process. Housing is not the best, and rooms are cramped. But the school has a very nice performing arts department, and plays and musical performances are put in throughout the year for the students. Samson and Deliah rated above the college bracket in a national competition.

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.

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.

BJU was originally established in 1927 near Panama City, Fla. and then moved to Cleveland, Tenn. in 1933 before finally settling in Greenville, S.C. in 1947. Most of the buildings were built during the 1940s, and they are still well maintained at present. BJU renovates buildings frequently. The school provides facility jobs for students to maintain the buildings' cleanliness and longevity. The newest building that's been renovated is Rodeheaver Auditorium. This facility is used frequently for the artist series events, Vespers, and concerts. BJU’s latest project is the Dixon McKenzie Dining Common renovation. The fundraising is ongoing, with a lot of money collected during the Bible Conference.

Students appreciate BJU’s gracious academic labs. There are labs available for every major. Most students think of a lab as "home." The library provides general amenities, but it seems to be lacking contemporary resources. Most students hang out at the Snack Shop, Social Parlor, library, and Cuppa Jones areas, sipping coffee, studying, and playing games with friends.

Clubs and Organizations on Campus
Student organizations thrive at BJU, with groups run by enthusiastic students from different academic fields and cultural backgrounds. Many of the organizations are easy to join and do not have any requirements for membership. However, there are some organizations that require certain criteria, such as a minimum GPA, low demerit count, specific skills, and past experience. Students can also form new organizations. To create a new club, students must acquire approval from the Dean of Students. Though sometimes complicated, this approval process ensures quality. BJU's student-run organizations are an excellent opportunity to network, serve the community, develop professional skills, and grow personally.
