I love BU! There is a great school of business, with fantastic professors. The business school is also in the newest building on campus. The Field center has plenty of technology, comfortable study spaces, and access to vending. What more can a commuter asked for? The small class size is great for a more personalized learning experience. You really get to build a relationship with your professors especially the one in your field. They get to know you and how you work best, make the learning process efficient. Brescia University is located in downtown Owensboro (KY), that makes it easy to be part of the community both personal land professionally! There is Fridays after Five down by the river. The only difficulty thing is getting those prime parking spots, but that’s true for any college. Brescia also has great connections with the local businesses community. Those connections provide countless opportunities for students to expand networking and gain internship and job opportunities.
I am currently a sophomore at Brescia. It is a great school and I am very glad I chose to come here. The class sizes are extremely beneficial. You are really able to create a connection with each teacher. The newer buildings on campus such as the new education and social work department building are super nice. There really is no nightlife here but I do not mind that at all.
I am a Biology student working on my bachelors degree, studying pre-physical therapy. I love how the classes are small, so the professor can work with students and help to better understand their learning needs.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
The online program for social work is not as flexible as I would like. They offered chat session optional to all other departments except social work. Also, the financial aid department is not very helpful or understanding.
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.
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.
Small but prestigious University, great safe location and beautiful campus. I actually work here on campus and when I transferred from the community college to Brescia, the transition was easy.
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.
