4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus, although I'm not a great test for that since I'm a man and don't know how the girls feel about it.

Health & Safety: Safety is always top priority.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Every student is required to take a course on Title Nine, the South Carolina state law about sexual abuse. Additionally, the campus provides a safety service staffed by both students and faculty that ensures the safety of campus. No alcohol or drugs are allowed on campus, and that policy is strictly enforced. This helps to ensure that each student feels safe on campus at all times. Also, a regularly enforced curfew helps campus authorities to know if a student is missing.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: BJU is the safest campus in the world and partially due to the moral standards of Christians and because of the moral nature of the rules there has NEVER been a sexual assault of any kind on the BJU campus.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: As a Christian university I would say BJU is among the safest places to attend college. Everyone is treated with love and respect, and exceptions are dealt with with adequate gravity.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There is no safer place than BJU! But some students complain about the University's overprotective atmosphere, with the campus police (Public Safety) on call 24 hours a day. Before midnight, Public Safety patrols both on and off campus to make sure that all buildings are locked and safe. Ironically, right off campus is a dangerous place to walk around after the sun goes down. Robbery, rape, and prostitution do happen once in a while. Female students are not allowed to walk off campus by themselves after 7 p.m. For students’ safety, Public Safety locks campus gates at 7 p.m., and students must use their University IDs to open campus gates, which prevents strangers from accessing campus property. According to some students, they feel protected since they know that all of the gates are locked. Parents of BJU students can take comfort in the fact that their child is well protected while away from home.

The sole health service on campus is Barge Memorial Hospital. Barge provides limited services, as well as rides to a local hospital if needed. The Campus Store carries cold medications, as well as first aid, but at expensive rates. Current students encourage incoming freshmen to come with their own medications and first aid kits.
