    Baptist Bible College & Seminary
    • Clarks Summit, PA
    • 180 reviews
    College Sophomore:I enjoy the community aspect of my school- the dorm life is wonderful and I absolutely love it. The academics are somewhat mediocre when it comes to my major (physical therapy) because the program is new and not very developed. I view the academics as a set back but would not trade the community experience for anything.

    Huntington University
    • Huntington, IN
    • 339 reviews
    College Sophomore:I love Huntington because of the small campus and friendly faculty that are always there to help you. I'm not a huge fan of the actual meal plans (required; food is not bad) or the chapel requirement per semester or the Community Life Agreement (no drinking anytime off campus during time here, no R-rated movies on campus). However, I feel as if I've grown as a person and I think Huntington is a great school to be at.

    Roberts Wesleyan College

    • 387 reviews
    College Freshman:Some of the professors are really smart, they just have no idea how to teach, it doesn't matter how smart you are if you cannot teach it we are all lost

    Wheaton College - Illinois
    • Wheaton, IL
    • 544 reviews
    College Sophomore:Even though it's considered a conservative Christian college, there is a lot of diversity among the student culture, in both ethnicity and ideas. It is a great place to expand your knowledge through dorm room conversations alone, yet the classroom is even greater for learning. The professors are great at being available for help, but their classes are also challenging enough to allow for growth. Yet academics are not the only good thing about Wheaton. It's close proximity to Chicago allows students some very unique and informative experiences. The student life on campus is also great at developing the community as a whole.

    Menlo College
    • Atherton, CA
    • 202 reviews
    College Sophomore:I adore my college for various reasons, the main one being that because it is so small the teacher to student ratio gives us students more one-on-one time with professors. The facilities are all well kept by our janitors that come every morning. Our dinning hall has options for everyone, including a vegan entree at every meal time. The quality of our clubs are wonderful and you are able to form a second family within these clubs.

    Brigham Young University - Idaho
    • Rexburg, ID
    • 5,060 reviews
    College Sophomore:My experience with courses and professors has been amazing. Because the classes here are fairy small in size, I was able to get to know quite a few of my professors. They all care for our success and are always willing to help us. The courses have also been really great and I've been able to learn a lot in each of them. I love how they tie in the academic subjects with the doctrine of our religion, because that has helped me learn more about both and also see how I can apply those academic topics to every day life.

    Molloy College
    • Rockville Centre, NY
    • 497 reviews
    College Junior:Molloy College has yet to disappoint thus far in my experience. I have attended two other colleges and have struggled to understand course requirements, the registration process and have also been disappointed with advisors with academic as well as financial advisement. Molloy College has been wonderful and extremely helpful guiding me down the right path in my academic journey. I am confident that I am in good hands!

    • 366 reviews
    College Junior:My school is a small, private, liberal arts institution. While I'm studying education and thus don't have as much time as I would like to explore the variety of classes, I love the emphasis that my school puts on developing the whole person rather than just the future professional.

    Bethel University - Minnesota
    • Saint Paul, MN
    • 638 reviews
    Recent Alumnus:Bethel is a wonderful school because it has rigorous academics, more so than students are led to believe. People at Bethel also care about each other a great deal. It is a small school and it feels that way; everyone knows everyone it seems. It is located 10 minutes from downtown if you take the highway, which allows for career opportunities while still in school and gives you great variety in any entertainment or activities you would like to participate in while you're in a big city. Bethel is in it's own quiet suburb though, which makes it quiet and seems to create a bubble like atmosphere where you don't realize much of what goes on outside the school. This is conservative compared to all universities. While there is not mandatory chapel like Northwestern down the road, there is an atmosphere that is very focused on Christ. However, your experience is what you make it. You can get very involved in campus life or not at all. You will still find people that get out and go to typical college parties, but the majority of the campus does not. I met lifelong friends here and it will be a time in my life I will never forget. All in all, I would certainly recommend Bethel University, but I realize it is not the college that everyone is looking for.

    College Senior:Most of the professors are amazing and the classes are interesting. I just wish there was more clubs to join, but since it's a commuter campus, it's hard to get people involved.

    The Baptist College of Florida
    • Graceville, FL
    • 101 reviews
    College Junior:So far, my college experience has been great! BCF is a unique place to be and I am grateful for the privilege of being a student here. At BCF, your professors do not merely teach the required material because it is their job; the professors go above and beyond to make sure that you are receiving the highest quality of education possible because they truly care for each individual student. The faculty here puts God first in educating young Christians to "Change the world through the unchanging Word". That is why I love being a student here.

    Milligan College
    • Milligan College, TN
    • 265 reviews
    College Senior:I cannot say enough good things about Milligan. Every staff member is friendly and helpful. All the professors take an active role in each students' success. If you are struggling they want to know how they can help. The whole atmosphere on campus is different. It's a loving community. The ONLY negative is the price however 1) it's a private college and 2) it's actually lower in price than comparable schools. I LOVE Milligan!
