Pensacola Christian College - Comments and Student Experiences|
Other than that, there are some positives about the school. It is easy. There is not much challenge in the course work. Easy credits. Easy degree. If you can keep your head down and not talk to anyone about what you believe (more about that later), you should have no problem graduating. Basically you can't think of it as a place to grow spiritually, only a place to pay to hear crazy theology and answer tests according to what the instructor believes, not what you believe. Simple. Easy.
As I said, you cannot talk about believing differently than they do. I went there to grow spiritually. Bad choice. I went to the instructors once a week to discuss theology. My beliefs about the Bible were different than theirs. That reflected in my final grades. 30% of your grade is "Class participation", which means if you are present, you get that 30%. Basically this grade is based on how much or how little the instructor likes you. If they don't know you, you're good for a good grade. If you do the math, you see you pretty much have to have straight A's to pass if your class participation is a 0%. The school does not like individual thought. Which brings me to my last point:
The school is full of "academic incest". What that means is the school only hires instructors that in some way graduated from the school. Most colleges have by-laws that prohibit themselves from hiring in-school students. This college REQUIRES it. You either have to graduate the undergrad or grad programs. This ensures that all instructors will be teaching exactly what the admin wants them to. No outside thinking. It is a poor way of running a college. It works pretty much like genetics. Look it up and apply it to a college and you'll see what I mean.There is much more that I would like to say, but this should be sufficient.
