I attend Brescia University online as a social work student. My experience thus far has been exceptional. The professors are very knowledgeable and are so open and willing to share that knowledge with the students. The reading material assigned for the courses is perfect and contributes well to what the courses teach. There's a lot of interaction with my other peers and professor in the discussion boards which I love because it allows me to discuss different topics with a wide range of people. This allows me to not only share my opinion with others, but it also opens up my mind to other perspectives and learn new things. The live chats are also effective at contributing to my education. The professors do a wonderful job at challenging us, asking us questions, and sharing their knowledge. There's also a lot of input from the students in the live chats that allow for discussion and different viewpoint. I am also pleased with how their online platform is set up. It's easy to navigate.
The adjustment to online learning was an easy one for a lot of professors. As for actual online classes I have not yet taken one, but I am this fall. I have heard from others the professors are very good at communicating and that students actually do retain the knowledge needed.
Brescia is a very small college and it does have a very family friendly atmosphere. The only problem I have had with Brescia is they have professors that do not deserve to be teaching at a Catholic college. There are a few that have been reported for being rude and some even being sexist, yet they are still there. If you can get passed the teachers, Brescia is a great school and they are getting bigger and better things.
I think Brescia is an overlooked gem in Kentucky. It is very small, but there are a lot of benefits that come with that. It feels like home, you know every face on campus. You really get to know your professors. Owensboro is a great small city with plenty of things to do. Brescia does a good job of holding activities for the student body (bingo nights, casino nights, movies on the lawn, ice skating, bowling...those are some of the events I've participated in while I've been here). The merit scholarships they offer are good and I was able to get an athletic scholarship and private scholarships...so my freshmen year didn't cost me anything. Brescia is also the only private college I know of that offers a Comm Science and Disorders (Speech Pathology) undergrad degree. Their are several majors to choose from; Biology, Education, and Business seem to be popular. My main complaints, the caf food isn't the best! Also, my new dorm is great but the other dorms need upgrades.
With COVID, I am now taking most of my classes online. I don't enjoy online courses, but so far everything has been ok. I'm pretty disciplined so I keep up with my work, but I have friends who are struggling. I haven't had any issues with professors being unreasonable. I just prefer to attend in person and hope that we can get back to that soon.
This is a small campus. I love living here. I also have a work study and they work around your club and class schedule. It’s amazing here.
Brescia University is a small school that is in the beginning of hopefully what would be a significant change to the campus. It is an okay school but still could use some work all around.
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 recommend Brescia university, playing athletics for 2 years made the experience great. The overall experience and student life is great. The curriculum is challenging, but worth it.
It's a great place to learn and get involved. The class are small and the professors welcome questions. If you live on campus there is always something fun going on. I love my school. It's great.
So far I am having a good experience! The professors are very good and everyone is so friendly. I am glad the my academic counselor has helped figure out what classes I need to do and has doubled checked that my audit was done correctly.
I had a great time at Brescia University. It's a relatively small college, so you get to know the professors extremely well. I would highly recommend checking out the history department, specifically because of the great professor!
Brescia university has great professors that are always willing to go the extra mile. The staff are also helpful with questions and always emails back within a day. Outstanding campus.
I’m an exclusively online (BUonline) student - and I LOVE it. Most professors are fantastic and they all understand that I’m an online student for a reason, and you are really set up for success as long as you are willing to put in the work. The coursework is challenging (I’d say more so than the campus courses I’ve completed in the past) but the profs are super helpful and want us to succeed.
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!
As an adult student over 40 years old, I have had the most incredible experience. I have been there for 3 years I am about to graduate and my professors are and have been amazing. They are knowledgeable, they interact, they are accountable and personable as well as professional. I have not met a professor I did not respect to the fullest. I have been blessed.
My first year at Brescia was actually a very good year for me. With playing volleyball, I got to experience so many things. Also, being on my own for the first time was nerve racking but I really enjoyed it. As all freshmen struggle through their first year, I felt like I was really on track. Some things I can improve on is being more focused and to study as much as possible! Overall my first year was very fun and I enjoyed my time.
