Bushnell University Reviews
Rating 3.86 out of 5 215 reviews
Although I love the people at Bushnell, there were definitely some administrative issues. First off, the cost of living is overpriced, and they force students to live on campus for 3 years. While on campus, we are not allowed to have any guests spend the night and the RAs can enter our rooms whenever. It feels like we have no privacy. In addition to this, it feels like our schools main goal is just to get more money out of us. That being said, I love the majority of the professors here, and I can tell they are passionate about their job.
I love the people at Bushnell. Two weeks into my freshman year there were people calling me by name in the hallway. I didn’t know most of them, but they cared about me. The people are very supportive of me. It’s an amazing place to make deep friendships. Another great thing about Bushnell is the athletics program. Two thirds of the student body plays sports, and the professors are always willing to work with your practice schedule. They are very understanding and willing to extend deadlines when you are gone for a game. Bushnell is also very aware of mental health issues in college students. Your professors care about you as an individual and will get to know you personally.
I took a few online courses at Bushnell University. The professors are organized in their assignments and due dates. They coordinate lectures and homework so that each student understands the material in order to complete the required work. Professors are quick to respond to emails and messages.
Bushnell University has a very welcoming environment. Although it is small, it is close to the University of Oregon campus that makes it feel bigger. The professors work so hard to ensure that the students are achieving their potential in class, and build personal relationships to make each person feel accounted for.
The online experience here has been good, the only problems are when teachers use separate platforms to meet that all the others. There’s always ways to interact with the other online students and the in person classroom.
I’ve just started my first semester at Bushnell University as a Freshmen starting in the spring. So far, it’s been very welcoming and an easy transmission from being at home. The other students are very welcoming and the staff is very helpful. It’s great being able to be in person during these troubling times; it brings a sense of hope. I believe that having a college experience is something everyone should have, and I’m lucky to be one of the few to have it. The only bad thing about Bushnell would be the food for the people living on-campus. Occasionally I will get a stomach ache, but other than that the staff is very accommodating and helpful.
I am a senior at Bushnell and started here back in 2017 when it was NCU. Coming ere has by far been one of the best decision I have made. As an out-of-state student, Bushnell made me feel at home in a way that I never really expected. The faculty and academics are quality but my favorite part is having professors that actually care about you. The Eugene area is one of my favorite aspects because there is so much to do and on campus, they do a great job at hosting events and opportunities for people to get involved. I'm really going to miss it here when it comes time fore me to graduate.
The online classes that I have taken have been informative, well organized, and with reasonable expectations. No complaints.
Most of my online classes have been great, and for the one that didn't I am pretty sure they replaced the instructor. The school takes class evaluations very very seriously.
If you are looking for a small Christ centered institution then this is the place for you! The professors actually care about your overall performance and will do what they can to help you succeed. It's fairly easy to get to know people if you allow yourself to be present in all the student events that the student body throws and you learn a lot about the Christian faith and other religions too. I have grown is so many ways and gotten to meet some of the most amazing people out there. The location is also perfect because there's lot's of coffee shops around, malls, trails, and tons of activities for college aged students. Admissions works with you from the very start to make sure you have a smooth process and assimilating into the community is fun and easy because everyone is super friendly!
The online experience here is very good. There are some things that could be improved upon but for most professors this is something newer to them due to the current state of our country.
I have really enjoyed my time here at Bushnell. I do not think I would have made it through college as far as I have if I did not choose to come here. I needed to come to a campus like this to succeed in my college career. The professors here really care about your academic journey. It is great to have a small enough school to actually interact personally with professors, and to get the help you need. On top of wonderful professors the student environment is great as well. I am involved with some really great study groups on campus as well as a great small group. On top of this I have made some really great friends here.
When we were forced to go online due to Covid-19, our staff and faculty made online learning the most successful experience that it could be. This wasn't an easy transition for anybody, but Bushnell made it a lot easier on me.
Bushnell is the best place that I could have chosen. While we may not be the biggest or most well-known school ever we have so many positive attributes that people need to know in order to really know us. Everybody on this campus cares so much about each other and that brings about a sense of community that is unmatched. I couldn't have chosen a better school and I wish that more people could see what I mean!
Bushnell is an excellent university. Professors genuinely care and want to see their students succeed. Every student graduates with at least 135 hours of internship which is very unique. The community is close-knit and I have made friends that will last a lifetime. I am very proud to have graduated from Bushnell.
I took a few classes online during my undergraduate degree. Bushnell specializes in accelerated online courses which is awesome.
I took multiple classes online, especially after Covid-19. The teachers definitely did try their best to make sure we were successful off campus. They were very understanding of our new struggles of transferring from in-person classes to fully online. The teachers were always happy to help as both the staff and students found struggles with online learning, but overall it was a pleasent experience.
Northwest Christian University (Now called Bushnell University) is a good school but no school is perfect! The best thing about this university in my opinion is the staff and faculty members. I have never experienced such a loving staff anywhere else than like here. All of my teachers I have had truly care about their students and they go the extra mile to make sure we are successful and happy in our educational and personal lives. Having such great staff really makes a difference on campus. The one thing I have disliked about this university, are the housing and cleaning services. The housing is very old and hasn't seemed to be updated for years. There is only one vacuum for all dorm rooms and it doesn't work and they have yet to buy a new one. The showers are quite unclean and so are the kitchens. I wish they would invest in updating the rooms at least, to make it more comfortable for students new and returning.
In the online classes I have taken here the professors posted recorded lectures. There were usually follow-up discussion posts to reflect on the lecture and/or readings.
I liked the small campus and class sizes. I also like the location of the school being near downtown area and U of O.
