Overall, I love CBU and in the past year it has truly become my home away home! A few of my favorite things about CBU are that there no shortage of things to do on campus, I always feel safe there, and the professors really care about the students. One thing I would like to see change is the relationship between commuters and the school. I am not a commuter myself but I have a lot of friends who are. A lot of events happen later in the evening or during week days, making it hard for commuters to get involved on campus. If we could change the commuter experience in anyway, I'm sure there would be an immediate increase in Buc pride on campus.
Review Christian Brothers University
Christian Brother's University is an amazing school. It's staff and students are very diverse. The campus is also small and student oriented. Classes consists of usually 10 students which makes student teacher interaction more reliable. I've met some of the best school mates as well as teachers and faculty. CBU provides a lot of opportunities to become involved on campus. There are many clubs, organizations, and events that are open to anyone. I would recommend CBU to anyone, because I believe it is the best college experience and environment.
I like Christian Brothers for academic reasons. The material for the classes is challenging and the professors also are challenging. It is worth the stress sometimes; other times, the material, or the teachers, is just too hard. As for as reasons that are not academic, Christian Brothers isn't the exciting place you could go. The city it is in is exciting, but the school itself, is not. Also, there is diversity on the campus, but the different groups do not really affiliate with one another that much. It also seems as though the minority groups/clubs on campus do not really get that much attention paid to them. Lastly, some of the dorms are not the best, some are, but others could use much work.
