What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bob Jones University provides an excellent liberal arts education. The frequent, required artistic productions (Artist Series), are very well made and often feature world-famous artists, musicians and actors. The academic quality is also fantastic. The programs are certainly not easy, but if you can make it through a particular major, you will be well prepared for a career in that field. The faculty and staff are just wonderful. They are frequently available to answer questions, and most importantly, they actually care about their students and how they are doing personally, not just academically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bob Jones University is a wonderful college right near the beautiful downtown of Greenville South Carolina. There are many opportunities to participate in sports and even in theater. Every student is required to join a society, and is pushed to get involved in even society sports. Even though the food isn't exactly the greatest, as a residence student you get unlimited breakfast, lunch, and dinner, which is nice when your a college student (plus you don't have to worry about gaining the "Freshman fifteen, LOL). The dorms are super clean and comfortable, they aren't the largest but they are super nice, the residence hall even contain large and comfortable basements, with tons of rooms to practice you instrument, study, or even lounge. The students and faculty are loving and willing to help you when you have needs. Bob Jones contains a great Christian evironment and a great place to be. Beautiful campus, beautiful environment, and beautiful atmosphere.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Bob Jones University is committed to helping the students grow in their faith and field. The campus was beautiful and the food was delicious. Many different cultures are represented at BJU. I felt extremely comfortable in the dorms and around the students. I was thoroughly impressed by my visit to BJU.

Bob Jones is an amazing school with a ton of opportunities. It offers a variety of programs while expanding your culture. The people there are incredibly gracious and giving. The faculty and professors care about you and are willing to bend over backward to help you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would encourage anyone to go to Bob Jones University. The professors take their time to engage one-on-one with students outside of campus, the staff is friendly and often appreciated, and the students are fully involved with campus life, classes, and each other. I have made lasting relationships on campus so far, but I have also learned that sometimes one will find difficult people wherever you go. Sometimes, the counseling can be less than encouraging, however, they do care and desire to be of help whenever they can. Despite this, I am proud to be called a BJU student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I was in high school, I did not want to come to Bob Jones. I am so glad I did. I love the faculty and staff, and I have made some amazing friends here. Yes, the rules are a little strict, but it wasn't that bad for me just because my parents were already strict before I came to college. So honestly, I felt like I gained so much freedom. Also, ATTENTION ALL SINGLE PEOPLE! Before I came to college, I thought I was going to die alone. Now, I'm dating my best friend, and it's the best thing in the world. So, if you're feeling how I felt before I came to school, have hope!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been a student at Bob Jones for one year and I absolutely love it! Yes, we get tired of food from the Dining Common. And yes, living in a dorm room with two other girls is not ideal. But the education and the love from professors and staff is unbelievable. Professors make time for you and actually care for you as an individual. They sit down and have lunch with you. Definitely a solid option if you are looking for a good liberal arts education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I spent six years at Bob Jones University, two as a student and two on staff. Obviously, I loved my time spent there. First of all, the education is phenomenal. The classes challenge the entire person, from memorization and analysis to physical application. I had no trouble finding a job after graduation. I had three offers by February (four months before graduation) for jobs as varied as speech teacher, caregiver to the mentally ill, and speech therapist. I chose to teach speech at a high school in Illinois. I created the curriculum, directed three plays, taught private theatre lessons, and coached actors for three separate competitions. In addition, I was accepted into the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's MFA program in Writing for the fall of 2018. I know my acceptance was a result of the fantastic education BJU gave me. The teachers at Bob Jones University not only know their material and teach it well, they also care about the individual student. Every day the teachers would ask after my health and encourage me to sleep and eat regularly. They were the ones who encouraged me to apply for further schooling. I never would have had the courage to apply on my own. They wrote countless recommendation letters for me. They were always available for me to come and ask questions. They make the school the wonderful environment it is. I highly recommend this university to everyone who wants a good education from teachers who truly care.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have benefitted in numerous ways from Bob Jones University and I’m not even halfway done yet. The academics are rigorous but rewarding, and help and support are always available. Many programs provide excellent teacher as well as hands on learning opportunities. The professors are wonderful and more than eager to jump in and help students that come to them. I have received one on one help with several of my professors, and they long to see students succeed. They show a genuine interest in students’ personal lives and are very understanding. They also do as best as they can as far as helping students make and establish connections for internships and jobs. There is not much of a party scene on campus, mostly because it is a Christian college. If you want to be challenged in your faith and grow, Bob Jones is the place for you. If you want to get through some classes and live the typical, wild college life, Bob Jones will disappoint. But for those of us looking to get a good degree supplemented with excellent experience and discipling in the Bible, Bob Jones University is highly valued. It was and still is my number one choice for college. The atmosphere is tangibly loving and familial. I had a rough high school experience and I came to Bob Jones University and found myself finally loving my classes, feeling like I was cared about as a person more than my grades or my ability to follow rules, and being challenged and discipled in a safe and supportive environment.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is probably the facial hair policy, because I believe as adults we should have a right to determine the length of our facial hair, because having no facial hair is unacceptable.
