Bluffton University Reviews
Bluffton University is an excellent institution in the services it provides to its students and the atmosphere. It will not let you fail in academics; there are many resources and people that you can reach out to and people who will reach out to you when you are struggling and when you succeed. Additionally, we have a saying at Bluffton, and that is "It's all about relationships." This rings true in all aspects of our campus community. Everyone treats everyone like family. From greeting people on the sidewalk to sitting with someone new. We all do our part to make everyone feel like they belong. The only complaint I have about Bluffton is the food. I wish that we had more options. Dining with people in our commons is a big part to building relationships and I think we need more diverse options to help others feel more at home.
The professors at my school are what make it so amazing. They are incredibly friendly and approachable. I never feel nervous to meet with them to discuss difficult homework and they are very passionate about their work. Another cool thing about them is that they invite class divisions to their homes for cookouts. The science division always has a cookout every year at the mathematics advisors house. Another cool thing about my school is how small the class sizes are. You really get a chance to get to know everyone around you. You become friends with many people of all ages and majors and it keeps your life interesting to become friends with people who come from different backgrounds. I definitely recommend students to attend Bluffton University because it is a small, quiet city where you can meet so many different people and have new, fun experiences.
I really like it here. I feel a sense of community and it is really nice to have trustworthy people around. I came from a bigger town, so it is all almost surreal because it is the exact opposite of what i came from. The professors are clearly passionate about their teachings and they are all really helpful! They want to see you succeed.
