Almost all of the professors and staff I have encountered have been extremely helpful and very dedicated to seeing their students both learn and succeed. BJU is committed to delivering quality education with a Christ-centered focus. The student body is diverse and I have made a lot of friends and met some very unique, driven individuals; though campus does have its share of people you want to avoid. However, every school has that to some degree.

I've only been here for a little but I love it! Great people and good education. I look forward to many more semesters.

I love my school. One of the highest focus there is to lead me to Christ and to strangthen my faith. This is one reason why I chose it. I needed a place that was going to help my faith grow. Not a place that was going to tempt me a lot with sinful things. The students and teachers are so friendly and really do want what's best for you. I would definitely choose this school again
