My favorite experiences thus far have been freshman oriented events to help incoming students solidify our choice to attend. The events allowed us to connect to other freshman and returning students and get a taste of life at Bellarmine.

When living off campus it can be difficult to fit into social life. The classes are challenging, and most of the teachers are excellent. Bellarmine has a lot of clubs and ways to get involved. I would choose this school again because of the quality of education. The school is extremely organized. The education students receive is one of a kind.

I without a doubt would choose my school all over again if I had the opportunity. I believe that through the challenges that this school has put me through has grown me both spiritually and mentally. The school's atmosphere is one like no other, being both friendly and outgoing while also being one of strict academic performance. Although every day is a challenge there always seems to be an activity or two to help you relax just a bit. For example one of my favorite memories was when I and a few friends signed up for a mud volleyball tournament and got all muddy as we played. Although we lost in the first round it was a very fun and memorable experience. One that alike this school will never forget and without a thought would choose again.
