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 came in as a freshman during the Summer 2017 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!
I just don’t like my university but adore every nick and cranny of my HBCU. Other than being an HBCU my experience at Bethune Cookman University was personal knowing my dad attended the university. The greatest asset BCU provides is the connection between everyone. We are definitely a family! From our café having an expanded menu, our love for musicality, school spirit, great hospitality from our RA’s, exceptional professors, accessible clubs and organizations, and the importance of serving others has not only made my experience remarkable but confirmed my decision on being a part of wildcat nation.
I cannot express enough how much I regret attending this university! Faculty and staff are almost ALWAYS unorganized. This university is private so transferring will turn into a complete start over with barely any credits to follow you, so in reality it’s a trap on top of being super expensive. 85% of the buildings including dorm halls are in poor condition if not also containing mold growth on walls. The goal of this university is to enroll as many students in hopes of taking care of massive it’s debt in addition to probably having it’s credentials revoke.... let’s just say I will highly suggest someone NOT to attend this university
