Scholarships: I am an athlete, so I get money for that and academics. Would be nice to get some for cost of dorm and food too and the left over difference of tuition.

Off-Campus Dining: Small town with an ok selection

3 College Senior

Parking: Needs more parking closer to classes

4 College Freshman

Majors: My only concern is having to take more classes than I have to compared to some other college towards my degree

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Campus is pretty safe. The freshman dorm is strict on alcohol use because it's a dry dorm

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Lots of areas of attraction including multiple water falls

4 College Junior

Parking: Our ticketing and fines has become more strict within the past year. The permit cost each semester is really low compared to other schools. I have gone two years without a car with no problem. Since BC is a small school there are parking spaces just not in the exact place they need to be. It is a process that the school is still looking at.

Off-Campus Dining: Brevard is located in Transylvania County. As part of a class each Brevard College student has to take, as a class the students get to see how a locate organic farmer runs his business of organic crops and such. There are a lot of local farms and organic options.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: With Brevard College being such a small school the financial aid office is perfect. They have a great system. Also, the financial aid team sends emails to the students who are not clear and works with them on either payment plans, work-study opportunities and so much more.

Local Atmosphere: Brevard, North Carolina is known for being the cycling capital of the United States. BC is not even a two minute walk from town so going into town to eat, shop or watch a movie is not bad and there is no need of public transportation.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Alcohol visibility is not noticeable because many people consume alcohol off campus where it be at an off campus house, a bar in town or restaurant in town. We have a no tolerance policy when it comes to drugs. It is one time you are found with drugs you are done.

5 College Junior

Campus Strictness: As an RA (resident advisor) I am able to uphold what each and every student signs at the beginning of the year. As a housing staff we hold each resident up to the same standard. I am not afraid to ask for help from either campus security or my fellow RA'S.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I seriously could not see myself anywhere else. I know I was made to be at this school. I have been given opportunities that other students will never receive in their entire life. I have been shown what it is like to be truly accepted into a school and community. I love being here at BC. I love the fact that Brevard College is a small school because every single one of my professors knows who I am, what sport I play, and how they can help me learn and grow. I can not reiterate how much I LOVE being here at BC!

Weather: Brevard, North Carolina is known for its amazing outdoors being close to Dupont State Forest and Pisgah National Forest. The rainfall is extremely high for this region but Brevard wouldn't be the same without the rain.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is Business and Organizational Leadership. I have to take ORG 209 which is a class designated to taking one big field trip. This semester our field trip went to Arcadia Farms (Arden, NC), The Beacon (Spartanburg, SC), the Amazon Warehouse (Spartanburg, SC), and then our final stop was the Adidas Warehouse (Spartanburg, SC). This trip was real world experience to see how these types of companies work and being able to see how these companies work out their global logistics.

5 College Junior

Academics: Brevard College has roughly around 700 students. With the school being so small the professors are constantly able to work one on one with each student. My academic advisor is AMAZING! She helps me with the registration process, study options and helping me graduate on time by making sure I take the right classes.

5 College Junior

Computers: Each semester you get more money added to your account to print off papers. We have a super lab which is open 24/7. We got wifi installed in all of our residence halls this year and it has done wonders for our college.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: As an RA (resident advisor) I love building community within my hallway and dorm.

3 College Junior

Weather: very cold in the mountain I stay in main during winter months
