Honestly, I love it. It is a pretty small school, but I like that since it means smaller classes and more one on one time with professors. Bellarmine is very friendly in general. I always feel completely safe on campus. We are known for being studious students and being focused on academics, but there are still fun events that go on campus and off campus.
It's a good school but it's not for me. A lot of my friends love the school but it doesn't fit my personality. I was expecting a city campus vibe since it is in the middle of Louisville, KY.
The main campus is a bit too quiet mainly because it is situated in a suburban neighborhood. The positive side to that is you feel extremely safe.
As I continued my college education, I've come to realize I need a larger campus environment.
I love Bellarmine. The campus is in a semi-secluded area.. it's basically surrounded by houses but not off a busy road. I thoroughly enjoy the class sizes of 16-30 students. 30 students only when there is a lecture hall, and the classrooms are up to date, specifically science classrooms which are great for me because I'll be taking many science classes due to my major. Over all, I love the campus, and the staff. Professors are willing to help you almost any time and they dedicate office hours daily, for up to 4 hours. It's great, and I can't imagine myself anywhere else. The only issue I have with Bellarmine is the cost of the college. It's expensive and that's why I have to apply for grants/scholarships.
Coming in to Bellarmine one would never imagine what they will get out of it. After only one year, I have had so many opportunities from job shadows to leadership conferences to amazingly fun retreats. I could not recount every event that I have been to this year and how many free t-shirts I got (we love our t-shirts!). While the shirts/food tend to get people to go to things, the environment and people are what make us stay. There is always a friendly face around encouraging you to try something new and get involved. Even if you fall down the stairs every single day without fail like I do, there is always someone to pick you up and make sure that you are okay. This is what makes me love Bellarmine no matter how annoying walking to freshman parking is (at least it is free) or how tired I get of eating dining hall food (although this wouldn't change anywhere else)!

My college experience at Bellarmine University has made me grow into a stronger and more outgoing person. Before college I was a shy person and didn't really pay attention to my grades or focus on my career. After my first few months of college I was a completely different person. I had made friends and I knew how important it was to focus on my future. I make sure that I try my best and get the best grades I can on all of my assignments in the classrooms. My school is small, so if I need to I can always talk to one of my professors. Also at Bellarmine, they let you have hands on experience with your future careers. I am going to be a teacher and every semester I am able to observe in a classroom. This is extremely beneficial to me because it shows me what my career will be like. College is very important for me to attend and I enjoy everyday that I am in the classroom at my school.
I have been enrolled in Bellarmine University for five months and I would have to say the amount of diversity is the worst thing on the campus. Although there is not much of a cultural melting pot, everyone at the school is accepting of every race. I appreciate the emphasis the school is putting on trying to diversify Bellarmine University. There contributions are showing in the statistics and that shows the amount of care in the school.
The classes are small so everyone knows each other and is willing to participate in course discussions and everyone values the education they are receiving.
Nothing. Bellarmine was very up front about everything I wanted to know, and the orientations were amazing!
Bellarmine University is a one of a kind school and I realized this when transferring to Bellarmine as a sophomore. I am so glad I made the choice to transfer to Bellarmine and continue my education there. Bellarmine has a friendly and personal staff. I was also very welcomed into the University by the students. I love the Education program that I am involved in and I love the quality of the school. I was most pleased with the many activities that go on for the students on campus. It has helped me make many new friends.
The best thing about my school, I'd have to say is the availability of the professors and their willingness to help students.
Bellarmine University is a small liberal arts school that provides an incredible academic experience and opportunities to students throughout their time here.
My school is very academically challenged and is ranked amung Harvard and Yale.
To attend Bellarmine, a person should be willing to work hard, meet new people, and seek out new learning experiences. Bellarmine is very open minded and fun spirited; the student body loves to engage its peers and loves to see people involved. Even if someone is more introverted, there are clubs designed to fit any person. Anyone would be a strong fit at Bellarmine.
Bellarmine is best known for its pre-med and nursing.
The parking. Freshman have to park in 'freshman parking' which is all the way across campus from the residence halls. Anytime you want to go somewhere, you have to prepared for the 1/2 mile walk to you car, then the 1/2 mile walk back to the residence halls. It's just frustrating whenever you have to be somewhere, but it takes you ten minutes to get to your car.
The kind of person that shouldn't attend this University is a slacker. There is really no room for anyone that is lazy. And plus it doesn't take long for the teachers to determine who works hard and who plays hard. If you coperate with others and are willing to learn than you can and will suceed. I found my first two semesters to be very dificult to transition myself into. Without the help of upperclassmen and eager teachers then I would have slipped between the cracks.
see above. Yes, very.
Drinking, noise, fighting, vandalism
Spoilt, entitlements, drunk, ME-ME-ME oriented.
Bellarmine claims to be a safe Catholic college with a focus on community and service of. The reality is Bellarmine is a university that has a focus on drinking and vandal majors. They do not care about community, and I can assure you, doubly assure you -- If your child doesnt have a drinking problem now, they will when they leave. research carefully, walk around the surrounding neighborhoods and Bardstown Rd. on a weekend before making your decision. If you DO want your child to learn how to drink and disrespect other peoples property and quality of life, Bellarmine is a good choice, but there are much cheaper places to get that same education and save more more money for the booze. As a parent myself, I WOULD NOT recommend Bellarmines alcohol soaked campus and spoilt, entitlement-prone, thug-student population to anyone. Its a type of education no one needs.
What is the stereotypical Bellarmine Student? White and Catholic. Most of the student population is white but only about 50% of BU students are Catholic.
