Brevard College Reviews
Brevard may have been expensive but almost half of my tuition was paid for from scholarships before I even stepped foot on the campus. It is a welcoming community with a different approach to academics. Experiential education makes a difference and works well with small class sizes. The professors here genuinely care about their students and you will never feel like just a number here. There are numerous clubs, activities, and ways to be involved on campus and in the community. If you are looking for small class sizes, personal relationships with professors, a welcoming community, a place in the mountains, emphasis on the outdoors, and a place to grow and explore your interests while also getting a quality education with a large networking community then Brevard is the place for you!
While Brevard might seem very small and earthy, it is certainly the place I never thought I would call home. With the class sizes being remarkably small, you are able to build a relationship and bond with your professors to ensure you are doing your best and getting the best education. With a variety of different events rapidly occurring at Brevard, you could never get bored. Beyond the beautiful environment that surrounds us and our amazing school, the people are what really brings everyone together. Unlike most universities, I have a relationship with my peers, professors, faculty and more. This relationship and kindness that is all throughout Brevard as a whole could never match to another. Everyone I have ever meet has only been kind and helpful to one another. The community of the town of Brevard and Brevard college come together for many events and bring joy to all. I could never imagine going anywhere else.
The criminal justice program is a huge benefit it helps get into the field right after college. The food is not the best but they feed their students. Campus is safe and security does their job. All of the professors are nice and meet with students one on one if needed. Most class time is hands on which gives you the experience you intended. I would recommend this college to anyone that wants the college life but not a big school. I can not wait to say I am a Brevard alumni it has been a dream of mine. I give this college an amazing rating
