    My favorite part about Bob Jones is that the academics are very rigorous. There are very few classes that you can just "get by" in. Each class is designed to stretch you academically, emotionally, and spiritually. Since I really care about my education, I greatly appreciate this type of academic environment. By the end of the semester, I am confident that I will have a thorough understanding of the subject that I have been studying all semester due to the courses rigorousness. The classes at Bob Jones would not be rigorous, though, without the help of the professors. The intensity of each course is due, in part, because of high standards that they set within their classrooms. The combination of the courses rigorousness and the high academic and moral standards that each professor sets in the classroom creates the most ideal environment for learning.

    Bob Jones University is overall, a very good college. They have exceptional teachers that genuinely care about the students, great athletic programs, and has a very short commute to downtown Greenville. Most companies in the south know about the great quality of a Bob Jones education and tend to choose their students over others. The only downsides are the lack of variety in the cafeteria and somewhat strict policies. Overall, this school should be highly considered for anyone taking their education seriously.
    I love going to Bob Jones!!! The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. The people and faculty are simply amazing! I met some of my closest friends of my life here at BJU.
    The teachers really care about you as a person and will do everything within their power to help you. They are very understanding of work schedules and other life circumstances and will help you when you feel overwhelmed. They will open their offices to you anytime you need to talk, even if the subject is completely unrelated to schoolwork.
    The dining common staff is simply angelic. Ms. Kathy, the person who welcomes people and swipes ID cards for lunch, works her hardest to learn every person's name. Once she has it down, she will call you by your name for as long as you attend the school.
    Even though college is the hardest thing I have ever done, attending Bob Jones University is worth every second and dollar spent on this school.
