Bellarmine is a great school with a great culture and a lot of opportunities to get involved. I highly recommend it and believe it is a great place to get an education. Students and faculty are always available to contact and you never feel like you don't know what is going on around campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although its relatively small compared to public-school colleges, I enjoy the smaller campus since it's harder to get lost when there are not as many buildings around. I also love the small classes, there are usually no more than 30 students in one class. Maybe I overestimated? Let's say less than 25. I live on campus in the Freshmen dorms--since I am a Freshman/First-year--and being there has a shortage of boredom. There are so many activities to do where ever you are, whether it be at the dorms or in the cafeteria. There is always something going on, the university's Student Activities Committee sends out an email every Sunday and Thursday to outline weekday and weekend events. In the dining hall, there are many choices for students from comfort food and home cooked meals to soups, salads and sandwiches. I have heard complaints that there are not many true vegetarian/vegan options offered however, so there is that. But I always get the home cooked style prepared meals because they remind me of home. Campus facilities are updated to the latest, computer-wise. Some of the A/C units could be updated, and there is sometimes a dusty smell coming from them. The dorms I stay in are older than some buildings, so there are bound to be some misses with the hits. As far as nearby places, the university is located near a street filled with many small shops, cafes and restaurants (as long as you're willing to pay for them) and it looks really cool! I have been down there a few times with friends. I am not sure of off-campus housing , so I was not sure how to rate it. Overall, I love attending Bellarmine University!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I have been thrilled with my education at Bellarmine! At an elementary education major, I know that Bellarmine is the right place for me. My first semester, I was in the classroom observing! The class size is very reasonable, always under students! My professors know my name and communicate with their students. My favorite part of Bellarmine is the amount of discussion in class and also out of the classroom! I have never met so many educated people who I can call my friends. Bellarmine is not only my school, but it is also a place to call home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bellarmine is a community in a way. Everyone is really involved and friendly. The campus is very nice and the teachers that I have met have all been really amazing. People there seem to genuinely care about you. There are always activities to have fun but also they offer a wide variety of services to help better your education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bellarmine University is beautifully and wonderfully made for anyone and everyone. It has a unique environment that is extremely welcoming and gives off a sense of community that is unmatched by any other university, large or small. I have never felt more eager and ready to learn than at Bellarmine. I am on a personal level with each of my professors and I know that they are always there to support and help me in any way that they can. I am so blessed to find a place so welcoming and so diverse and I am eager to see how much I have grown as a person and student in the years to come.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bellarmine University is a great place to go if you are in the upper tax bracket. The physical aspects of the school are fantastic. It's a beautiful campus, resources are abundant, and there are so many fun activities. The school does a lot to make life enjoyable for the students. However, the spirit of Bellarmine is best described as competitive laced with lowkey classism. At one of the honors luncheon I attended, a speaker declared that our classmates are our friends- but also our competition, and we need to do better than them. An excellent statement for fostering teamwork. This disharmony is not specific to academics. A student in my Freshman Focus class bragged about his bank account fairly often (although otherwise, he was a pretty good guy). During a meeting with my advisor, I stated that I felt 'poor' in comparison to the Lexus-driving, gold watch-wearing students on campus. Her response? "36% of students have PELL grants. Now THAT's poor." While her comment was obviously not meant to insult, I was there on a PELL grant and received the message Bellarmine was trying to tell me loud and clear: this school is for the upper crust.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bellarmine is an honestly incredible place. It's small and has somewhat restricted class scheduling, but it's completely worth it. Not only is the campus beautiful, but the people are all amazing. You get to know your professors one-on-one and they actually and honestly care about their students. It's one of the few schools where the teachers want students to learn and do well. Many courses are tailored so that students can come to understand difficult topics (for example, Bellarmine is one of the few universities where students don't expect to have to retake Organic Chemistry). Being a teaching university really helps, as the teachers are focused on teaching and not just research. Plus, the student life is incredible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am really happy and excited to be starting at Bellarmine this coming fall. I know a few students currently at the school and they are learning a ton of things to help them learn and grow in this unique world I love in. I can not wait to get a jump start on life and following my career path. I love that the campus is close to the city but feels far away at the top of a hill.
