4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Plenty of intramural sports to play and the gym has a large variety of equipment.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: I'm actually not too familiar with the athletic side of campus life.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Although we do have varsity sports, the college does not revolve around these students or their sports. Included in regular sports are many more intramural sports, which the majority of students participate in. Additionally, the facilities open to students are beautiful (having recently been renovated) and include plenty of options for students to get involved.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: While athletics are a part of the BJU atmosphere they will never be the focal point of the university. At BJU sports wisely always take a backseat to the Word of God.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports and the Athletics have a great system and are great to have it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

BJU does not have an intercollegiate sports team. However, sports are very competitive within the Greek societies. The disadvantage of this is that students get into having spirit for their society rather than for the school. The advantage is that all students can get involved with sports. In other words, they do not have to be a phenom to play sports. Sports programs include badminton, basketball, flag football, pingpong, racquetball, soccer, softball, tennis, volleyball, and water polo. Once a year, BJU has a soccer match with Furman University. Another example of school spirit is Gold Rush Daze. Once every four years, BJU hosts this school sports event. All students and faculty participate and compete as red and blue teams, respectively. The event brings the student body together and boosts school spirit.

Athletic facilities are kept up-to-date and clean, with a swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tracks, fitness centers, spa, tennis court, and an aerobic room available to students. However, a lot of facilities run by female and male hours. Some female students complain that the men’s fitness center is bigger and better. Overall, BJU offers a lot of fitness equipment to keep their students healthy.

Getting Tickets
BJU does not charge for sports games. Usually, there are reserved spots for alumni.
Best Place to Take a Walk
BJU does not have trails on the campus, and it is very dangerous to take a walk right off of campus. However, downtown Greenville, which is only three miles away from campus, offers the most romantic walking route with delicious dessert places.
