Bob Jones University has been an excellent choice for me. I enjoy most of my classes and the professors are more than happy to help whenever I have questions. They are down-to-earth and offer great advice! I have done well at classes that were even a little out of my comfort zone. My roommates have always been courteous and kind. There is plenty of room in the dorm buildings and it is clean and comfortable. It feels like a tight-knit atmosphere and I always feel safe! The dining commons is a great place not only to eat, but also socialize. It is a warm and welcoming atmosphere that easily feels like home even though I am miles and miles away from my home. I know that I am growing both academically and spiritually and being prepared for life in the real world.
If you are looking for a college that is unlike any other, then BJU is the place for you! At BJU the professors actually care about their students and take time to help them and talk with them outside of classes, the students are kind, and it is very easy to make friends. BJU helps students to grow and become responsible and respectful people. BJU is also a very clean school in that there is no smoking, drugs, alcohol, and wild party activity allowed or accepted.
