"Balance. Balance is a key word for Bob Jones University. Are you going to get the most elite academic training in America? No. But you will get an excellent education. When it comes to its Christian world view, it endeavors to teach its students the proper Biblical view on how to make a difference in this world and not compromise. It does so without the effect of having students become radicalized about minor Christian issues. It provides a safe environment for students to develop socially without the pressures normally associated with the behavior of this age group. The teachers are appropriate, caring, and prepared. Is the institution perfect? No. But no institution with human beings in it can be. They have made appropriate adjustments throughout their history to address some of their earlier mistakes. The leadership is committed to the overall development of each student."

"Bob Jones is a small Christian school with a student body ranging around 3,000. Because of its size and nature, this school is much cheaper than most others while offering a higher caliber of education. It was the perfect size to meet a variety of people while still affording enough anonymity. While the student body care is flawed and legalistic, the current dean is working relentlessly to advocate for the students and to change the stigma surrounding the administration. My department was by far the best part of my experience at BJU. The theatre faculty are deeply invested in the well being of their students and they work to push us to reach our highest potential. I walked away having gained so much valuable experience and a network that otherwise would not have been possible outside of the faculties involvement."

"They have the best English Liberal Arts program. I learned how to write at this school. Academics was highly rigid but fair. I had to learn how to learn. The teachers spend time on their students. I love this school and I support them to this day."

  • Degree: Music
"My experience at Bob Jones University was great! The school was a wonderful place to grow and learn. The academics were excellent, particularly the English department. Although I was a music major, the academic load outside of the arts probably helped to prepare me for life in general."

"BJU provides a quality, liberal-arts education at a fraction of the cost of many private institutions. While the guidelines students must abide by are not over-the-top, do take a look at them before signing up to go. I appreciated the dedication and personal investment of my professors, as well as the friendships I made in the education program."

"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."

  • Degree: Nursing
"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."

  • Degree: Nutrition
"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."

"Tell us about your college experience.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.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?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.What advice can you offer other students?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."
