Bob Jones University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Bob Jones University was a good Christian college. They provided a well rounded liberal arts education with skilled and experienced faculty in all of their departments. BJU is not for the faint of heart or the partier though. With their rigorous academics and strict rules, BJU shapes a well defined college graduate and equips him or her to enter the workforce prepared for anything.
I am just getting started at Bob Jones and planning on doing a four-year bachelor's degree in nursing. So far, I have taken some online courses to help lighten the load of courses when I get to school. When I first began my online classes, I was afraid that I wouldn't be able to connect with the teachers or experience enough classroom interaction with other students; however, this was not the case. In all of my classes, I had excellent instructors who knew a wide spectrum of what their course involved and were willing to take time to communicate with me what I needed for the course. The set-up for the classes allowed me to communicate with other students about the ideas presented in the class, and these times especially helped me understand the content taught better. Once, I had the chance to travel down to the college and meet one of my instructors, who was glad to meet me in person. Although online courses are usually thought of as non-interactive, I found that the program offered by Bob Jones University allowed me to both learn and enjoy my classes.
Technically my major has been discontinued temporarily due to accreditation. However, once Bob Jones become nationally accredited the school will reconsider starting up the Food and Nutrition major. I thoroughly enjoyed my nutrition classes and learned a lot. It was a great experience for me.
It was a great experience. The rules were hard to obey at times, but they were also advantageous in teaching me personal discipline. I use that discipline in every aspect of my life currently. The school adequately prepared me for teaching for 6 years in the middle school and high school classroom. I felt prepared for almost any situation.
None, the same. I loved teaching. It was a degree that could take me any where. I also use my teaching skills in other areas of life like public service and working with siblings and other young children.
Choose a college. Stick with a legitimate degree even if you decide half way through that you don't enjoy it as much as you once did. However with education, do NOT become a teacher unless you enjoy it. There are too many people picking education as a degree when they should not be in that field. When you get out of college a finished degree makes an impact... not a half degree or something that took you only a few months.
