Clarks Summit University Reviews
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.
Most people are very welcoming and open to conversing no matter your viewpoints. There are a handful that are not as warm and welcoming, but you would be hardpressed to find them. The school is constantly talking about how little money they have and press the current students for more money in any way that they can, but that's more of a nuisance than an actual problem.
