4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school are a big part of student life because everyone gets together to go the games. Also I am a cheerleader and I have met some of my best friends during sports. Whenever we get bored on campus, we get a group together and go play sand volleyball or play a game of flag football.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is different from big schools because the professors get to know you personally and I know everyone at the school.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe but do wish halls were cleaner

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

4 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great family atmosphere but need work inside dorms... Educationally worth it

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I didn't expect much, because no college seems to have great housing but as I visit friends at other colleges, I realize I've never seen any forms that are as bad as mine. They are old and outdated and although I hate to say it because they have to work cruddy hours and deal with lazy, gross students, the custodial staff don't do a very good job. Showers in my community bathroom have mold, only one of them is warm the most, but usually they're all cold. The sinks were installed poorly, I leaned on one once and it actually tore itself from the wall. It was not found to be my fault after the hall director assessed the problem. Garbage is an issue. I pick up after myself but I cannot say that for others. Custodial staff will sometimes leave things in the halls or stairwells for days as if to say, "pick up after your own selves." But the thing is, aren't they paid to do this job that they willingly applied for? I also hate the lack of air flow during the summer and how hot it is during the winter. My heater is always off and window is always open and for some reason the room is nearly unbearable to sleep in.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: We have a ton of talented athletes at this school, but our weightlifting facilities aren't in the best condition and don't have ample size for the large number of athletes BCU houses. The weight room for all students, including non-athletes, has barely any free weights or lifting machines and a lot of cardio machines. The cardio machines don't all work though, which easily puts a damper on the work out. I believe coaches do their best to design a program around our small facilities, but as our athlete population grows, I believe the program should grow with it. Speaking of coaches, many of the coaches for football are hot-headed, which leaves many of my friends discouraged and causes them to lose their love for the sport.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I thought I wasn't going to easily make friends and that I wouldn't be able to be as involved in activities at BCU like I was in HighSchool. With the dissolution of the theatre program, I don't have as much fun with extra curriculars, but writing club and honors and just little events the school holds are a good way to get students like me out there.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I enjoy the convenience of online classes. I am able to get help when needed. Very flexible with my busy schedule.

Administration: Sometimes the noise gets way out of hand on a school night.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Don't be afraid to ask questions.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It tastes like home cooking most of the time.

3 College Junior

Athletics: About half of our sports teams do well and the other and starting to get good.

3 College Junior

Local Area: There are enough things to do such as shopping, sports teams, indoor and outdoor recreation things. It's not a bad place.

4 College Student

Athletics: athletics are big it lets the students let off some steam but the school looks at the classes are more important than the sports. Everything is new and upto date as far as the athletics goes and there are lots of opportunities for competing and having a good time. The school as a good handle on whats important and know how to distinguish that to the students

4 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: the housing around campus is just like anywhere else. The prices are not extremely high when you think of what you pay to live on campus compared to off campus it is about the same price or a little cheaper. The landlords are like anywhere else you have the good ones and the ones that dont care as long as you are giving them money. shopping and dining out is a walk away and to get any where in town it can take 10 minutes driving.

4 College Student

Weather: The campus is built on a hill so in the winter the students and families can go sleding. When it isnt snowing but cold all the classes are inside and in one area so you dont have to so too much walking out doors and freeze. The town the college is in isnt small but not too large either there is plenty of things to do and see.

3 College Senior

Transportation: There is a city bus available as well as Taxis.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The safety at BCU is what concerns most people. Security does not create a sense of being watched but more of a babysitter. There are no cameras in the parking lot so if something were to happen you would have very limited options in finding a solution.
