Belhaven University has a wonderful, family-like atmosphere. The class sizes are small enough to where the teacher actually know your name and face, and you're not simply a number. The best teacher that you should take is Mrs. Tracy Ford. The only thing I would like to see different about Belhaven is the cafeteria choices!
Review Belhaven University
Belhaven University is a private 4 year Christian College in Jackson, Mississippi. The professor are great and connect very well to students and the advisors are beyond heros. The campus is small and the class sizes are small as well giving more one on one with each professor. There are very good resources such as the think center that give free tutoring and planning help to all students. The campus is beautiful and the new stadium bowl is awesome. Belhaven needs to connect more with the community that surrounds the school. This will help in support of the sports teams and the overall spirit of the school.
I am currently enrolled at Belhaven's online management program. I am a senior and I have been enrolled at Belhaven for three years now. After trying different online schools, I can honestly say that Belhaven has been the best one. The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and truly care for their students. Managing for a Fortune 500 company already; the curriculum for Belhaven's management program is in line with what is encountered in the real world. It effectively prepares students to excel in the challenging business world environment. I have learned a lot from this program, and it has helped me grow tremendously as a professional and a servant of Christ.
