I really enjoy attending Goldey-Beacom. It's a small community, that is good if you like to have a family feel where you know everyone. The teacher here are exceptional and really do want to see you succeed. Goldey-Beacom is not a well known school, but it is growing slowly. Although this school is very small and has a tiny campus, this is a very good school if you are an athlete as well, most of the students on campus are athletes for the school. Lastly this school is extremely affordable!

What I really liked about Goldey-Beacom College was the ability to graduate early and how the advisers worked with me to help me do so properly. The professors really work with you to give you knowledge and assist you through real life issues. For example, I had a professor who taught Human Resource Management, and I asked him a few questions about my job and he was gladly to be a help and answer all of the questions I had.
Things that need to be changed at Goldey-Beacom can be the amount of scholarships. I am graduating a year early and I have great grades, however, finding a scholarship is nearly impossible at the school. The advisers do help and point you to the right direction in where to look for scholarships through external cites, but it is extremely hard to obtain another one from the school.
So far, Goldey-Beacom has been an excellent experience. Great staff and students, amazing atmosphere, and wonderful diversity. I am looking forward to spending the next four years at Goldey-Beacom College.
