So far it has been a delightful experience to learn at this institution! The history of the Seminary and the College is really inspiring and is followed by a strong tie of tradition and relevance. There is a reasonable variety in the credentials of the professors that makes the student aware of differing views within evangelical theology and the Christian worldview. The environment is one of the best things in the school. There is a friendliness about almost everyone and a strong sense of community. You will eventually feel like you belong there! Overall, a great place!

I am a sophomore at Boyce College, and it has been a very interesting experience. I am a business major, and I have thoroughly enjoyed all of my business classes so far, Business Law being one of my favorites. Our faculty is highly qualified for their positions, especially our business professors and church history professors. They are good people and their offices are open for much of the day when they are not teaching. While the overall campus culture is nice, there is a certain "bubble" feeling about the school, most likely because the vast majority of the students are Southern Baptist, but for me that is a minor issue.
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary defends the Bible and the truth of God. They pride themselves on following the gospel, fostering discipleship and true growth, protecting their students and offering a myriad of great opportunities. Their staff and professors are dedicated to helping students above and beyond the typical education. It is has an affordable college in Boyce and is the largest Seminary in North America. They focus less on parties and wild pleasure like some colleges might, and instead offer true rewards in Christ. Lives are changed for the better at SBTS with great student life, spacious dorms, an excellent city in Louisville Kentucky that is home to wonderful food, churches, diversity and refugees that need out help. They have basketball, soccer and volleyball as some of their sports and all of the students support and encourage each other more than so many other places.
