Clarks Summit University Reviews
The Youth Pastoral program at Clarks Summit University (formerly BBC) is a content driven major that will well equip those seeking this major. From the theology classes, Christian electives, and to the practical major courses; Clarks Summit offers professors who are able to teach from wisdom and experience. The ratio of professor to student makes for an interactive hands on training experience that is sure to last beyond the four years of schooling. Whether it's in the classroom or in the dorm, Clarks Summit offers a spiritually challenging and encouraging environment where students are sure to grow in education, and in their relationship with God.
Clarks Summit University is an excellent school for what its intent is aimed towards. If one desires to be a pastor or a Chrisitan school teacher than this University would be an excellent choice. Otherwise, I would recommend that someone consider a state school for what they intend to major in. Though I made some amazing friends there I would not pay as much as I did just to make friends. After college, I had little to no help finding a job in my field of study. Plus, the school is so small there is very little network potential. If one does not know this yet, you have to understand that out of school networking is EVERYTHING. Likewise, the campus is small and its easy to never get of the campus and the bubble of its social groups. There are definitely some amazing professors there who I adore, but there were many classes that I felt were a total waste of money.
It is an old school. They are trying to become a little more innovative- Hence, the name change Summit University. Classes are very comprehensive, assignments are hard-but reasonable. The most challenging thing for me was always to keep up with writing comments back and forth, but that is the online world of education. Administration is still a little rough around the edges but, you can also see they are trying to improve. They are a Baptist University with hard core Christian values. oh!! Also, the cost is VERY affordable in comparison the other colleges with the same degree.
Summit provided the training I needed tailored to fit my schedule needs. I recommend Summit to anyone looking to further their education.
I appreciate all of the classes I have taken and believe the quality of education is good. Studying online makes it possible for me, a working adult, to continue my education. It would be more fun to be in a classroom but I am thankful for the tremendous opportunity I have to study.
The quality of classes and interaction with the Professors is great. The classes are affordable but the school does not offer any scholarships.
