After Bellarmine University
- Very Good230
Bellarmine holds a housing fair that brings in different apartment companies/landlords/etc. for students considering living off-campus. However, some of these tend to be a little expensive. If you're just looking for a basic apartment with a few friends, there are also little books laid out around campus that advertise apartments and houses. The Highlands where Bellarmine is situated is a pretty safe area. Most apartments and houses have street parking. Sharing an apartment 5 minutes away from the campus with three other people, I'm paying about 230 a month in rent, not including internet, electric, and food. This is much cheaper than living on-campus!

I am in the accelerated 2nd degree nursing program at Bellarmine University. The workload is demanding and very intense based on the nature of the program. However, the prefessors and staff are the most helpful that I have ever seen or worked with at any school. This has been the case from the application process to the actual program. Questions are answered in a timely manner and the very best effort is put forth to ensure that you get the highest quality education and assistance in financial aid, job support and classroom time. Bellarmine's campus and facilities are absolutely wonderful! I would highly recommend this University to anyone who is looking at nursing programs.

There is a wide range of opportunities available on campus. Freshman are often aided in making their first schedule and from there on out students make their own schedule. They organize which classes they'll take each semester; advisors are there to help make sure students stay on track and take the courses they need to. The registration process is easy and flows smoothly, it's computer generated. Each student gets a lottery number for a time slot, then they can go online at that time and click the classes they want. Opportunities exist to study abroad, which I highly recommend to checking in to early! There are extensive opportunities to volunteer off campus as well and learn more about the community you'll be living in, and involvement fairs are held early in each semester to let you know about them.
