Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary Reviews
Faith Baptist Bible College is a great college, and by far one of the best choices I made! After spending two years there, and planning to finish my bachelor's degree there, I have grown to love this college. My favorite part of this college is the love the professors have for the students. All of my professors cared about my character development. Each one of them made sure to let me know that for any reason I could set up a time to talk with them. I also thoroughly enjoyed the resources and information I received there. As a missionary kid, I wondered how much more I could learn about missions. This college has taught me a lot, not only about mission methodology, but even more importantly about my loving God behind it all. My college experience here was a great experience. Of course it is not a perfect place, only Heaven is perfect. No matter what struggles I had during my college years, I always had someone from the college ready to lovingly help me through.
I love the overall friendliness on campus between students, professors, staff, and visitors. I love that the focus of the college is to prepare and train students for a lifetime of effective ministry and pursuing godliness, regardless of the degree(s) they pursue, the job or career field they enter, and the place in the world in which they live. I love that the professors care about each individual student - in fact, they are given pictures of enrolled students during the summer so they can familiarize themselves with the students' faces and pray for them before they have even met! I love that each and every staff member - bookstore clerks, dining services employees, administration personnel, student life, the dean of students and the dean of women, and even the President himself - is willing and ready to talk to anyone that enters their office; and if they don't have the time, they will try their hardest to make a timely appointment that works for both parties.
I love the dorm style - suites! There are 25 rooms on each floor, 50 rooms total in each dorm, and one men's and one women's dorm on campus. Each room houses two students, and two rooms next to each other share a jack-and-jill style bathroom. It's great to not worry about having to share a community shower with others on your floor, and it's very nice to not have to haul your toiletries back and forth to the bathroom daily! Each room is equipped with two of each of the following: beds, half-sized dressers, desks, and bookcases. Each furniture piece is able to be stacked. The closets are walk-in style, and are decently sized.
