Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2006

Excellent school. I attended one of their off main campus sites (NIACC) and I really enjoyed it. It allowed me to work during the day and go to class two nights a week. The instructors were all very qualified and helped me learn and grow. I highly recommend.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I absolutely loved my English department professors as well as my education department professors. I worked in the English department as an academic assistant, so I got to know the teachers very well. They were lively, thought provoking, and generally fun people to be around. I still keep in contact with the education department professors. They were always willing to help, send recommendations, and give words of encouragement.

I took classes through my local community college and I couldn't have been happier. The instructors were great and were very well prepared to teach the classes. It was very challenging and I learned a lot in the process. I recommend this to those that wish to continue working and earn your degree at night.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2009

This review is for my experience with BVU's remote campuses, not the main BVU campus in Storm Lake. I wanted to finish my bachelor's degree and BVU was the only option in my area. They offer night classes at the local community college campus in my town as well as online classes. Program options are limited, but I chose English. Here is a rundown of my experiences: 1) The office staff lost my paperwork. A few days after I submitted my papers, I received a letter reminding me to turn them in. I called and they claimed they never got them, even though I had turned them in personally. 2) Despite claiming certain programs are offered, you might be taking a high number of independent study courses. This was the case as an English major. All of my core classes were IS. That's if the classes are even offered. I had no choice in what electives to take. 3) Substandard instructors. My IS literature instructor didn't follow his own grading rules set forth in the syllabus. (I discovered this by comparing essays with another student. He was just handing out A's to anyone who turned in work.) My advanced composition instructor was a stay-at-home mom who got bored and decided that teaching one class a year would keep her busy. She was never able to provide direction for the class and requests for clarification on assignments were met with shoulder shrugs. My conflict management instructor was a former industrial production supervisor who got sick of his day job but wasn't ready to retire yet. He had no teaching experience, but blamed the class when no one scored higher than 75% on the midterm. (Maybe it was because he was a bad teacher?) He preferred to tell us about his latest experiment with homebrewing.
