Bethune-Cookman University Reviews
I would like to say that Bethune Cookman University provides its inhabitants with an experience unlike any other. Being started by an African American woman it holds a legacy that remains unmatched. Strong, resilient and proud Wildcats continue to roar! I will say that; although the surrounding areas are deemed undesirable the community finds B-CU to be the glue that brings everyone together. I will be coming in as a freshman during the fall of 2020 session and I've made friends that not only can relate on a cultural level but also share the same pride and passion for achieving their goals. Thank you!
Bethune cook-man is an extremely incredible school. They ensure your scholastics is dependably put first regardless of what . Likewise the athletic division is wonderful we have some incredible games that will drive you to a success! In general everything is extraordinary other than educational cost which is absurdly high, which is for what reason I'm applying for this grant.
I Love my HBCU! This school is phenomenal! Not only the professors, but faculty and staff are there for you to help you through. Especially with me being miles away from home I feel like this is my second home. The surrounding areas are pretty rough but the campus is as if I’m in my own learning world. I like that I can relate and see my dreams are possible which is why I push myself to excel. Despite my shortcomings of being a miracle baby weighing only 1 pound 10 oz and being told I will never do this and that and will not live past 3. I’m here and doing what they said wasn’t possible and for that reason I’m great full to be a student a Bethune Cookman University.
