The Business Administration and Biblical Counseling degrees are phenomenal. Calvary also has great tuition. There are areas where Calvary could improve. The school does not have many people, and diversity is low.
Calvary was the my first and best experience in the college world. I would absolutely recommend it. The professors were really helpful in that they were concerned for the academic and spiritual growth of each individual student. They constantly wanted us to brainstorm with them, and make appointments when we need encouragement. The online capabilities were outstanding, and it had the same benefits as an on-campus class.
Calvary is a beautiful school full of people who genuinely care for your well being. Having an issue in a class? Talk to the professor and he will sort things out swiftly. Need more time to focus on God? Every class begins with prayer and there eis chapel three times a week! I would suggest this school to every person in the world no matter their beliefs.
I love Calvary University and appreciate that I can obtain biblical training and foundation for my life at a price that I can afford. One of the greatest values of this school is the friendships that I have developed. I am challenged to grow and change and be the best version of myself that I can be on a very regular basis. The challenge comes from the context of a relationship and that is a special blessing.
I would say the best part about Calvary is the community, and obviously the price. It is a useful resource for learning more about the Bible if you are wanting to. It is as impactful as you make it.
The professors are magnificent, the classes are great and helpful in real world.
It is generally safe and has not experienced any major problem so far
It is the best I have seen yet. I was thrilled by their housing options
Calvary is unique because it has some very insightful bible classes
I don't participate in the athletics, but I've seen enough to know that those who do really care about their teammates and sports. Calvary has great sports and great support for their athletics.
I love Calvary. The people are very kind, the students friendly, and the teachers very willing and helpful. The main problems are that the website isn't very user-friendly, but once you figure it out, you'll be fine. People in admissions don't always tell new students what to do unless they ask. If you go on orientation day, though, you'll figure it out for the most part. Calvary has a limited number of majors, so I'll be transferring soon. Other than those things, it is a wonderful school. I am in the dual enrolled program, which I think is extremely beneficial to those students still in high school but wanting to get college credit. Calvary also began a study-and-work program, which allows students to work on campus.
It's a small bible college, so you get to know everyone on campus. Depending on majors classes are small. Some of the general education classes are a bit bigger though. The professors are nice and like to get to know all the students. The best part is watching all of the students and professors growing in their spiritual life. It's almost like having a second family because we each got each other.
Living on campus is a great experience college.
On one hand it is awesome to be with a lot of people who believe what you do, then you discover by the way they live that they don't. The girls are really nice, although people around here make marriage such a big deal. They typical dress is pretty conservative and casual when allowed.
The campus is really nice, really old to. The library is in the buildings that have been used by Calvary since at least the 80's.
The same is true of the gym, not a lot of money is invested in athletics, I like the student lounge the best but do not hang there much as I am always doing homework.
The academics at Calvary are much harder than I am used to. I came from a community college, where we had one textbook and we were not graded on the reading. Here the professors expect you to read the textbook plus other books and turn in cards saying you read it.
Here at Calvary, we do have fun. The Campus is very strict on things like alcohol, that is an absolute no. Curfew is also enforced. If one is not in by midnight most days, they will call in a missing person report after a certain amount of time.
