I like the opportunity to go to class at a community college close to my home town. They need to be more organized and have an advisor for every student, I am almost done with my first term and still do not have an advisor. Instructors need to give examples of what is expected for papers instead of letting students go in blind. They also need to grade faster, so you know if you are doing something wrong, so you can improve your grade.
I was a part of the volleyball team. I had a great experience because of my team and coaches. The school itself is small, so the class sizes are small, which makes it easier to learn. Having UO campus right next door gives the bigger college feel, while having the luxury of not getting lost in the crowd.
It was nice to have such a small community. I found many people friendly and kind. All in all it was a good experience. This being said I found it hard to connect and get plugged in. I felt as though many of the programs weren't well thought through and could be improved in many easy ways. For example the chapels felt very fake and formulated. Overall it was a good experience but it lacked a lot of aspects I would've liked to see in a school.
I am a ABSN student at Bushnell and the admission's, financial aid team and more -- have been 100% helping me every step of the way answering all my questions! This school is very much invested in their students - I like the small family like feel. I did my undergraduate at U of O and I felt lost half the time. You definitely won't get that feeling with Bushnell! Hands down 100% recommend.
Bushnell has been satisfying to me. They have treated me with respect and dignity as a returning student. My goal and the goals of this institution are in sync. I would recommend Bushnell College to any returning student or any freshman entering college life.
My education was excellent but the relationships I formed were the priceless piece. My wife and I met in school at Bushnell and can’t wait for our kids to grow up and be beacons too. The integration of faith and learning, along with the small class sizes and being able to be known by faculty, administration, and other students was key to our experience.
It’s one of the most scamming schools in Oregon. They tell you it’s all that but feed you garbage food and don’t let you stay in your own place until you’re 21 years old! They terribly judge you and don’t reach out or affiliate with you if you aren’t faith oriented although they act as though they accept all beliefs. They charge way too much money for the schooling/ treatment the students receive. A lot of people say that the school is so strict that it causes people to want to rebel. They act as if they’re bringing in diversity by just bringing in Hawaiians. They act as if the school is so innocent. Most students there regret going to this school, especially athletes involved in non-popular sports. It’s just a joke. Most people I’ve talked to say it’s like high school all over again, maybe worse. They force you to go to their chapel and take a bible class on top of all of your actual credits and they won’t tell you that or hardly mention it until you’ve signed and are stuck there.
Bushnell is a great school with small classroom size. Great academics, athletics and community. Directly transferable credits with neighboring University of Oregon and Lane Community College.
I love the welcoming and inviting atmosphere full of smart, educated, and caring teachers who all want you to succeed. No matter who you are, what you believe, or what you’re going to study, everyone is considered equal and called by their name- not just counted as a number.
I love that Bushnell is a "small" university with access to a "huge" university. The small student-to-faculty ratio allows for relationships to be built and connectivity to be made. I am excited to get started!
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.
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.
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 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!
