Its a pretty good school for those we live in the Memphis area. I would suggest alongside the UofM. There are a lot of activities to be done and things to do. The food is fair and the professors are pretty nice. It doesn't feel dangerous there either. Everyone is pretty friendly there as well.
The Buccaneers of Christian Brothers University are a diverse group. With this comes a myriad of opportunities to get involved not only on campus but within the community. There are numerous associations ranging from food sustainability to engineering to business groups that all organize volunteer opportunities. If there isn't something that's been established, then it isn't too challenging to start your own. Not getting involved is close to impossible.
Its cool. I like it. You should definitely consider applying !!
I love it here. I think the class size is small enough for anyone to get to know everyone. People are friendly, and the campus is safe . One thing I think people should know is that anything you could dream about doing is capable here. Someone will always be available to help you make a new club or a new business connection. CBU nurtures and creates success.

"College is going to be a piece of cake!" This was the thought that I had in my mind as a high school senior, along with if I could survive high school, then I can survive college with no problem. Now, although I survived my first two years of college, I didn't do so without any problems. If I knew then what I know now about college, my mindset going in would have been a lot different. College is similar to high school, but on a whole different level. College is enjoyable, but is also a lot of work. In high school, things were more relaxed when it came to turning in assignments, but in college things are much stricter. People kept trying to tell me this, but I never listened. Now I realize it all. Unlike in high school, you can't procrastinate about assignments and need to stay on top of things because once you fall behind in college, it is so hard to catch back up. If I could go back and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would tell myself all of these things, only this time I would seriously listen!
the best thing about my school is the faculties are awesome
CBU expects you to do yourbest while in the classroom and out.
I'm not sure that their is a bad thing about my school. i love it. There are things in my school that need improving, but other than that i dont think there is a worst thing, it is pretty perfect. If only they would get rid of 8am classes.
There really is not any one particular thing that I wish I had known before attending Christian Brothers. My experience here so far has been wonderful and everything that I have learned has been for the better. Even if there was something that might have altered a few situations here or there, I think that experiencing a few hard times and learning from them has made me a stronger and more well-rounded person than if I had known about how to avoid a struggle before it occurred.
A person who is lazy, too dependent on others, and who does not have great work ethic should attend CBU.
Christian Brothers University is best known for its hich academic curriculum and it's diversity.
Christian Brothers University operates with Lasallian principles. The professors at CBU strive to bring respect for individuals, inclusion, service, and faith into the classroom. Students discuss these values and, in the Education department, these values are instilled in us so that we may approach our own teaching with these in mind. A CBU education is not simply a matter of attending class, completing assignments, and earning a piece of paper; it is changing the way you view the world and the people in it from a perspective that is embracing of all people.
Whenever I talk to friends and brag about CBU, I always mention how the professors are so caring about their students' future. I admire my professors because whenever I need to come to one of them regarding something school related or even something on a more personal level, they are always available to assist me. I also mention the small classes that help to make me feel more involved in the learning. I never feel like just another student because the classes are small enough for me to establish a one-on-one relationship with my professors.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the work load that has been given to me as a freshman. I first felt that it was more than I could handle, but I am now getting used to it.
My classmates are a diverse group of people who are of a higher caliber in every respect.
This is a great school for those who wish to enter into the engineering or medical fields, and is very stong in the sciences in general. The small class sizes and close interaction with professors make learning difficult material much easier.
The stereotype of students at our school are nerdy kids that tend to not have social lives. This is beyond exaggerated as we are all different and we do not fit one certain image that might be perceived from outside of the university.
