The best part of my time at CSU (then BBC) were the friendships and experiences that I had in the dorms. That combined with caring and involved faculty prepared me with the soft skills needed to navigate multiple careers. All schools have problems, but I wouldn't trade my time as a CSU student for anything!

This school can be great depending on what it is you are looking for in a school. It does not offer many degrees like other universities and it is in a not so well known area,very small environment, and it may be boring for some. It is not the best or cheapest school to go to especially if you are interested in fields such as business or health sciences, the options are very limited. However if you are looking for a good Christian education and learning more about the a Bible and pursuing ministry it is a great place to learn with many qualified experienced professors who are passionate about teaching.
This college has been so nice from the moment I applied. I have people contacting me from the school wanting to get to know me and answer questions. My admissions counselor is even paying for my bedding and necessities until I get my stuff shipped to the college from the college I went to last year! This college wants to help you get the best education possible for the lowest cost! This college is amazing!
