I absolutely love Brescia university, there are several reasons why including a close knit college atmosphere, great professors, quality dorm arrangements, and more! I absolutely love the Brescia experience! There's even free tutoring available on campus available to all students who need help. There's plenty of student run activities and clubs, there are also a huge variety of sports including tennis, soccer, baseball, softball, and even a computer e-sports team.

I really felt that the majority of the teachers don't care at all and want you to fail. If I participated more I probably would've had a better experience, but I'm happy that I'm going somewhere else now. They have redone a lot of the campus and it looks beautiful!
Brescia is a great school and I am glad I chose this to pursue my college experiences. I take the BUOnline courses and it is so convenient for my lifestyle. I have three children so having the opportunity to take all my classes online and never having to step foot on campus is very nice. I have nothing in particular that I feel needs to be changed, the advisor I have is very helpful to make sure I have everything I need!
