Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!


Caring faculty and individualized attention.


I love the smaller classes, it allows the professors to consider you a student and person and not just a number. The teachers are all engaging and allow and encourage students to ask any question. I would have no problem going to my teachers to ask them for help in something I didn't understand. I love the campus and the location in Louisville, that probably is most unique about Bellarmine since it sits up on a hill and is in a suburb of Louisville so away from the hustle of downtown.


Bellarmine has small class sizes and professors that truly care about their students and how they do in their courses. The campus is beautiful and the school offers great financial aid to most if not all of its students.


--------------PARENTAL WARNING------------------ 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.


Bellarmine is a very personal school. Most of the advisors and staff are willing to go out of their way to help the students, especially in the music department. It is as if they all realize we are on our own for the first time, many of us miles away from our parents, and when needed they step in and advise us.


More then 88{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} of the students study abroad in other countries. I was one of these people and had a great time expanding my cultural horizons and learning about another way of life.


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.


When I first came to Bellamine for a visit, what stood out to me the most was the family like environment. As the students walk down the hallways, we all speak even if we do not know one another. Also, at most schools you only see the President of students when you are in trouble, but at Bellarmine you will see the President each and everyday, which shows that he is concerned about our future.


The classrooms are small so there is more time to get help from the professors. At Bellarmine your not just a number you are known by your professors your name.


Bellarmine is the perfect size, being a relatively large university with many resources, activities, fields of study as well as being small enough that it is a tight-knit community. The professors in each department are extremely knowledgeable and actively involved in their field of study but they also personally know many of their students, and they recognize if a student is not present in class. I see your professors at school events; they approach me and tell me that they are glad that I am taking part in the community, which is a great dynamic unique to Bellarmine.


Bellarmine is unique by being open to many ideas that students have. I can go and talk to teachers about a new thought I might have about getting a club started, and they'll help me find something that works, or make my own way. It is also unique in that it is the only Catholic indepent university in the south, so there isn't much pressure for non Catholics, and those who are have a support group if needed.


It's small enough to where you have your professors for more than one class. You really get to know your professors and fellow classmates, and that creates a large sense of community for you.


Bellarmine is like a small community. The class sizes are small and the faculty care about you as a person and your life outside of the classroom and beyond academics. The people are very friendly and outgoing; you can't go anywhere on campus without seeing and talking to several people you know. It is very easy to get involved either in clubs and organizations or with volunteer work. Bellarmine does a good job of incorporating social justice and our place in the community in to the curriculum and university mission. Location is perfect mix of friendly neighborhood and city.


Bellarmine University is a small campus at the top of a hill. Surrounded by trees and a golf course, it's nestled away in the eclectic Louisville. I chose Bellarmine for the intamacy with professors, studens, staff and the surrounding community. At some places you go to college, at Bellarmine you form a home.


That which makes Bellarmine unique as compared to other campuses is that all of the buildings that make up the whole of Bellarmine University are located on one hill.


Bellarmine is smaller, and more community based than other schools.


The scenery and abundance of majors they offer
