This Institution is embedded with rich African American history. Our founder, Dr. Mary Mcledod Bethune, was a woman with great faith which applies to everything the school believes in. It is a beautiful and historic campus with a friendly staff and outstanding students. My experience here has been wonderful!

Here at Bethune-Cookman University, I like the school a lot so far. My class schedule is pretty good, no complaints. The food here is really good to me, the staff And faulty are really nice and helpful. However, it's not always a party scene here. Some days are more duller then others. The admissions and financial aid office is very disorganized and slow. So far overall out of 10, I give Bethune Cookman University an 8!
Bethune-Cookman University is an awesome campus! You learn a lot about yourself here. The classes are small so the learning environment is relaxed and I feel like I actually get the attention I need. I would like to see more diversity here, even though this is an HBCU. Therefore, I honestly don't have any other complaints. I love my HBCU!
