Tell staff care about you on a personal level. Academics were geared towards the working person and non traditional student.
Briar Cliff University is a small private 4 year institution. With staff that are dedicated with making sure that the students have what they need and hold them accountable for making it to their classes and completing coursework. The ratio of student to professor is small, with 1 professor to 24 students, which allows more of a 1:1 ratio when you need assistance. With an active student government, the students voice is heard and charges made immediately after a problem is identified and addressed. Briar Cliff University is your home away from home with a beautiful scenery. Tuition lock on all incoming students making you keep your 1st year tuition all 4 years, making Briar Cliff University very affordable!
I really enjoy BCU because of their missions and values they uphold. I liked how it is a smaller university because I have a great connection with my professors and am able to talk with them easily if I do not understand material in class.
Briar Cliff has some great people employed there. They are caring and do want the best for the students. The DORMs are terrible. Black mold in two of them that is not being discussed. Alverno and Toller. Not sure if money is an issue but they need new DORMS 40 years ago. Terrible shape. I
The online classes were satisfactory but taking online classes from a dorm room feels like a prison.
Online classes were through a third party website. Very easy and fast. They used straight-line when I was there.
Over-priced. Dorms constantly have issues. Safety of campus is poor considering no cameras on campus.
Yes Briar cliff was not the perfect place but the professors were amazing I would give them full credit on why I stayed there so long I also would credit them that they are some of the best in the nation
I loved being in campus for the professors they were really amazing they whole heartedly made sure every student was taken care of and made sure everyone passed classes and ensured everyone a great education
Very unprofessional staff from the business side. You will get no answers, because no one knows what they are doing and they don't seem to care. It is very disappointing considering they are a private Catholic institution, I would expect so much more. The only thing that saves this university is the professors.
I though briad cliff was a great experience and I loved it. Some things could have been better, like the food. But other than that it was great!
I took classes online at the end of the semester and one class online throughout the year. I thought they navigated well and did a good job.
I came to Briar Cliff as a transfer from big college in another state during spring semester of my freshman year. My overall experience has been alright since professors are really here to help you academically to maintain a high GPA. Athletics are not the best nor the coaches and facilities, however, large portions of students here are athletes. Diversity here is really great since I have many friends that are literary from everywhere around the world including myself.
Not what I expected. The academics are poor, faculty missing in action, no resources and ridiculos experience. I came to get an education and play volleyball, but I'm forced to choose one or the other.
Briar Cliff is great. Nice community, great professors. Great sports teams. I feel like I'm at home when I'm at Briar Cliff.
Briar Cliff is a very nice place in Sioux City, Iowa. There is so many things to do on and off campus. There is a wide variety of athletics that students can attend. We have floor events, where each floor can decide what they want to like going to see a movie or going bowling.
I loved the academics and professors at BCU. They really care about their students and do whatever they can to help you succeed.
