Brevard College Reviews
Review Brevard College
A small, homey college in a small historical community near the blue ridge parkway. Is a great school those interested in music,art and the outdoors. The classroom size allows for a student to get one on one with their professor.
This is a primarily athletically focused school which only recently went to a DII status. That said, for the school to compete on a DII level, the facilities are extremely subpar. No turf, (we have to use the high school's) small areas, very dated facilities that are badly deteriorated. My community college and high school (which is similar in size) at home has much better facilities. It seems they get started and try to renovate and then don't maintain the upkeep. We go to compete at other colleges and are so jealous of their facilities. Recruiting, fan support, school spirit, and in turn, team performance would be so much better if our facilities were better. They are trying to renovate but it remains to be seen on quality and what they are actually willing to do. If you want to compete with the big dogs, you have to have the backing.
The environment is beautiful. Waterfalls, hiking, mountains; it's gorgeous. Many craft fairs, and Asheville is nearby and it's fun. But you HAVE to have a vehicle because the school has no shuttle service. Even accessing downtown is difficult because of the walk. The town is quaint and has many boutique-style shops and cafés. They aren't open evenings. Students don't often access them because of limited transportation. The locals seem to cater more toward the wealthy retired and tourist population.
