Degree: Music

"Bethune-Cookman University molded me into the woman that I am today. The experience there is like no other institution. I am extremely proud to be a Wildcat. Every school has their trials and tribulations. However, the fighting power of Bethune-Cookman, instilled by our Founder, Dr. Mary McLeod Bethune, holds strong within the schools community. The music department truly has gems as professors. I am truly thankful to be a product of the talented individuals that teach there. I am thankful for the sacrifices my professors made for me and the bond I have created with them through their educational support."

"While drenched in the history and legacy of Dr Mary McLeod Bethunes amazing achievement, Bethune Cookman University is a small, private college-turned-university. BCU is a school that will celebrate the new members of sororities and fraternities on the weekends, march to the polls for elections, pray during assemblies, and show their school spirit at the Florida Classic. Even the least school spirited individual will rep the collegiate maroon and gold while sitting across from the sea of orange and green of Florida A&M University. What doesn't get enough recognition, are the actual academics. Of course, the top scholars get their assemblies, but the celebrations are more geared toward academic downtime. Honor societies are not recognized, ever. There are also not very many internship opportunities which make for a challenging time post-graduation. Transitioning from college to the real world is very difficult as there is not a way to network unless you choose a popular major like business or mass communications. College is the time to grow up and find out who you are, where you want to go, and what you want to become. While most students matriculate and graduate, there are way too many who fall through the cracks and do not. It appears that there is not enough pressure, or perhaps, too much pressure of the wrong kind, to continue. It does not seem to be the best university. Several individuals have transferred out of it, only to find that the credits they worked so hard for would not transfer. It may be that the school does not offer the right major as there are not as many as other public or private universities. No university is perfect, but Bethune Cookman is a decent school. Given the opportunity to thrive, it is one to attend."
