I was given the opportunity to continue my education at Bennett College and for this I am truly grateful. Bennett College has not only provided a safe learning environment for students, but has opened doors for students who wanted to expand their horizon to study abroad, wonderful internships and Methodist Church exposure to help young girls be mentally and spiritually ready for the world. Bennett College also provides a Big sister & little sister mentoring program for every freshwoman. These big sister and little sister program creates lifelong relationships with their sisters. When its all said and done, there is no place like Bennett College.

My classes have been great, I sat in front of all my classes. I think it's important that the professors are aware that some students are here to be attentive and respectful. However sittibg in the front can be annoying when others are talking out of turn, but overall professors are equally respectful. The class sizes are great, makes class very engaging & brings in more effort from the students. Courses offered could be better because I know many students that have to go else where for something Bennett doesn't offer.

Being in such a small school, the students don't get many scholarships from within the school. We have to look for some ourselves. The financial aid process is like hell. Long lines and frustration is only the start of what many students have to go through. Everything's last minute!
