4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Strict for the glory of God

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Some places are too pricey for students

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Some places aren't in safe neighborhoods.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are no drugs on campus.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Workload is rigorous but rewarding.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great theologians who take the time to know you.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I mostly spend my time in the dorms, dining hall, classroom, gym and library. In my opinion, all the facilities seem to be well kept in general. Some of the dorms seem older but still in fairly good condition, the gym doesn't have the latest and greatest equipment I'm used to but it is sufficient and the library is definitely a great atmosphere for focused study.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Being that I attend a seminary, it is already set apart from mostly every other university across the country. The academic program has mostly to do with the in depth study of the Bible and issues surrounding Christianity. Campus life is entertaining and encourages bonding, especially between those who stay on campus

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Typical interests are sports, fitness, music and religion. Dress is anywhere from athletic to professional, while social life is typically centered around church events, concerts, sports and local attractions. Relationships include a large population of single people with a great many married couples.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It is bad in the fall, you can walk to class in the morning and it will be cold and mid-day it start snowing. Or it may be cold one day and hot the next, making it difficult to truly be prepared at times

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few late night dining options which mostly consist of fast food restaurants. While these are close by, the chain restaurants are further out and being that I am a new student, I'm also still in the process of learning where they are.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The level of strictness measures up to the standard of life that every student claims to adhere to when they apply to this particular school. For those who are already striving to live a certain kind of lifestyle, campus strictness is not an issue.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Great school Cafeteria with manny options and good service.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: If you are going to Southern Seminary for the Bar/club scene and secular parties you are an idiot and you must be handicapped. Plenty of fun things to do though that do not include drinking and clubs.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Great Atmosphere with nice people who desire to learn and understand the bible.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Walking is good. Most everything is within a mile or two from campus. Car travel(parking) can be difficult especially if you are a new driver. I have not seen any form of oncampus transportation but it could exist. I prefer to walk everywhere, keeps me from getting fat.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: My career goal is to serve as a pastor in a church plant model upon graduation. This school is a great way to be equipped for ministry so long as you use your church elders in a mentor ship role alongside your education.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is a Bible college/seminary. You get what you put in. In order to get the most from your classes you need to:
1. interact with your instructors. Learn about them and allow them to mentor you.
2. interact with peers, build relationships that will impact your ministry.
3. (most important) Get the elders of your church involved in your training.
If you do these things you will have a great experience and a wonderful base of friends to begin your ministry with.

1 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: I say the worst not because people are ugly but because it is irrelevant. If you are looking to pickup a guy or gal than this school may not be the best fit for you. Men and women dress modestly and are concerned with glorifying God. Not finding a date.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: If you like city life then you will like louisville. Parking is almost none existent so plan on parking and walking to get anywhere you want to go. There are always events(sporting or festive) going on.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: If you plan on living on campus you need to put your application in as early as possible. The wait list was 6 months long hen we were looking for an apartment. If you have a small family on campus is the way to go.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are alot of good apartments in the area immediately surrounding the seminary. It would be a good idea to find a good church first and ask the people there about apartments and landlords, because alot of apartment complexes only advertise through word-of-mouth.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Always something new, if you have money. The best rated pizza place in Louisville is just a few minutes from campus.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer lab is awesome in the library. The Wifi is reliable and always available.

4 College Student

Weather: It's December 1 and 51 degrees outside. I will take it.
