4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The quality of my courses are very good, however, it was very hard for me to get along with some of my professors because I didn't like their teaching styles.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: BV helps students find internships that would later help them in their careers and they can also help us get into a graduate school.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living in the dorms. It is close to everything and I can even take tunnels to most of my classes.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: From what I notice, most of the students here are involved in at least one sport. In my opinion, the teams perform fairly well, but they are not the best in the state or anything like that. However, no matter what sport it is, there is always plenty of fans there and a lot of school spirit.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would definitely choose Buena Vista University again if I could everything over. I love the campus because it is easy to get around and it makes me feel at home. I feel that our career center makes Buena Vista unique. My favorite experiences were making new friends and stepping outside of my comfort zone and BV has really helped me do that.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Being at a GPS site it make it convenient for me to attend classes.The course are educational and what I feel are well suited to the different degree offered. The instructor are great. t\They are passionate about the courses they teach and are helpful to the students both in and outside of classes. They make themselves available to the students when necessary.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Because Buena Vista University offers classes at the local community college for Graduate and professional sites (GPS) it has made it possible for me to continue my education beyond a 2 year degree. I am a non-traditional student (age 52) and so I am not as mobile for being able to move in order to attend classes on campus. The classes for the most part have been face-to-face which is what I prefer. I am more old school and therefor really don't care for the online classes. I have had to take a couple of online courses and it is difficult for me to grasp some of the material without the normal class discussion. Overall I have had a really great experience attending college classes with Buena Vista University. The instructors are knowledgeable and make the classes interesting as they are also very passionate about the subjects that they teach.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: If I could do it over again I would not choose this school or would have transferred when I still had time. The professors are mediocre, the only programs that the school cares about are business, science, and education. The coaching staff and athletic administration have high turn over rates and don't care about their athletes as much as they should. The food is bad and not being able to live off campus for four years is absurd.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school is a small close-knit community where everybody supports each other. Professors are very helpful in achieving your goals. Class sizes are small which means more professor-student interaction.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My is very good. I enjoy the teachings and everything so far. I am not disappointed I made this choice.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: During our freshman orientation, the currents members really took their time to get to know us and also helped us interact with our future classmates. An example of this is when we did the "Beaver Games", we got into teams, played games, and competed against the others. Overall, it was a great experience and I can't wait for many more to come.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Sometimes the food is awesome other days there seems not to be anything enjoyable.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty close to everything. Living in Pierce/White makes you close to all the academic buildings.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Great diversity in the town, so lots of Hispanic and Asian influenced food. Prices are good for someone on a budget.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've never been to a party, but I hear about them mostly in the suites. People talk about them a lot, and also take the drunk bus to the local bar downtown a lot.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Very culturally diverse town for it's size. There are not a whole lot of places to shop, other than Walmart, but a few great authentic restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel adequately safe on campus.
