Bethune Cookman is an amazing campus with a great staff and student body. The professors here are some of the best people I have ever met they engage everyone in the classroom activities and classes are small enough for one on one time. Bethune Cookman has a lot of rich history on its campus which is very interesting to me , There is nothing I would change about this wonderful university, I truly enjoy being a Wildcat!
Review Bethune-Cookman University
My name is Kaytonya Jennings and I am a junior transfer student from the British Virgin Islands. I am currently pursuing my bachelor's degree in hospitality management at the university.
There are great opportunities on campus as it relates to getting experience in your career field, developing yourself as an individual, being apart of the different organizations. There is an organization for everyone to participate in that ensures you get the full experience of the "college life". I do not live on campus so I can't really give my opinion on that aspect. However, I would say that I think that activities on campus should be better advertised to ensure a successful turn out because i honestly do not be aware of some of the activities. I am excited to see what the upcoming semesters has to offer as i continue to learn and prepare myself to depart and serve.
My experience at Bethune Cook-man University as a freshman has been a great experience. The atmosphere on campus is lovely, i have learned more about my black history and there is still more to learn. The staff members and professors are very helpful by encouraging and pointing you to the right direction. The new dorms are comfortable and refreshing, also if there is maintenance problem that needs to be fixed, the Residential Assistants will get the problem fixed as soon as possible. Furthermore, i think the food in the cafeteria needs to have more variety and better flavors. Other then those things, Bethune Cook-man is a great school to attend.
