Mostly a good experience. Campus life was what made me not love my time there. But my education was excellent.

My experience with Brevard College has been wonderful. The professors and other students create a nice environment for a new student or a returning student.

I seriously could not see myself anywhere else. I know I was made to be at this school. I have been given opportunities that other students will never receive in their entire life. I have been shown what it is like to be truly accepted into a school and community. I love being here at BC. I love the fact that Brevard College is a small school because every single one of my professors knows who I am, what sport I play, and how they can help me learn and grow. I can not reiterate how much I LOVE being here at BC!
