4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: While it can be kind of hard to find, the places are generally pretty nice and spacious and there seem to be enough options close to campus.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Louisville is a great town with LOTS of dining options around the city. There is something for everyone. There is also a growing local food movement happening and several restaurants are dedicated to strict local sourcing while many others source at least some of their products locally.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: I didn't live on campus for long and therefore never had too serious of a run-in with campus security, plus my RA was very lenient and not around too much. I lived in the Siena Secondo which doesn't have a front desk so that makes it a more lenient environment.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: You just have to find the right group of people. Some Bellarmine parties are more like get togethers which are more my scene. Others are wall to wall people. Both are good for making connections with people in the BU community and getting to know new people.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Apply for it early! Bellarmine grants a lot of scholarships

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: UDH works to source local food. The menu isn't always the best but there's generally a nice variety and lots of vegetarian options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The living space is nice but the community was hard to connect to for me.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I personally have lived at home with my aunt while in school. I do not have the resources to live on my own in off-campus housing. I have heard wonderful things from fellow classmates who do live off-campus within walking distance of school. They love the area and have had nothing but positive things to say regarding their experience.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: My university lives within the best area for restaurants and night life. The street I am referring to is within walking distant and has a variety of everything. I do not know of anything that Bardstown Road does not have to offer.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Personally I have not had a problem with the campus strictness. I think the rules are set in place for a reason. More than likely if there is a rule prohibiting a certain act, you should not be doing that anyways.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Throughout undergrad it was easier to seek help and guidance from financial aid. However, now as a graduate student I feel stuck. The only options presented to me are loans. There is a restriction on the amount of loans I can seek from school, which leaves me with a large sum of money I am struggling to pay. I am in a program where it is almost impossible to work while in school. Therefore, I have no income and am living off of what little I have in savings. It would be nice to present graduate students with additional options and guidance as is done with undergraduate students.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: A lot of students over 21 go to bars not students' houses.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: As with everything there is room for improvement. Being a commuter I do not eat a lot on campus. When I do eat at UDH or in the Palio it seems to be the same thing. So the only complaint I have would is to add more choices for students.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I can not adequately rate campus housing at my university. I have never nor currently lived on campus. I have commuted to school throughout my college experience.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not like the dorms. There is no enforcement to quite hours. The dorm rooms in Kennedy are small. The heating is hardly turned on. There is hardly any lighting. The community bathrooms are okay, but people are gross. Some like to gather into the hallways and talk as loud as possible, which can be disturbing for mostly everyone. It is not worth the cost. There are newer and better dorms, but i do not live there. It is very convenient to live on campus. The furthest you would have to walk to class is about 10 minutes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Bellarmine always takes pride in how employers look for Bellarmine graduates. The school is number one or two in the state of Kentucky, so the value of the degree is good. The alumni network is very much alive at Bellarmine with their own office in order to keep up with the alumni. The career center is there for anyone looking to know about a certain career.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no greek life. We have one frat, one sorority and one mixture. Greek life does nothing to the social atmosphere of campus life. Nobody really cares about the Greek life and no special housing for those in Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Faculty always are willing to help find internships. The study abroad program is also helpful in order to find internships abroad. I do plan to have an internship, but I am only a freshman so i am not sure exactly how hard it is to find an internships.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The security is friendly and always willing to help. The administration is helpful when needed, but also strict when needed.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not many parties are located around Bellarmine. More parties can be found around the University of Louisville. Most parties get busted around Bellarmine because the school is literally located in the middle of a neighborhood.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is not very encouraged here. You have to write an appeal just to live off campus, if they even allow it. There aren't very many university apartments near the school. Off campus housing is easier to find near the University of Louisville, which is located 20 minutes away.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I received a lot of financial aid and scholarships in order to make attending the school affordable for me.

College Freshman

Athletics: Our school is based mostly on academics. Sports are encouraged and students are expected to attend events, but they are not a big part of campus life.

4 College Junior

Administration: I'm a big fan of the administration. It's also very easy to create student groups on campus, as long as you go through the SGA and their RSO approval person.

Local Area: I love Louisville. Living in the Highlands provides several opportunities off-campus activities.
