The quality of BLC has gone down significantlyEconomics
The quality of BLC has gone down significantly in the past years.
While a handful of professors are fantastic and provide properly challenging academics, the number of students that they enroll who are vastly unprepared for collegiate academics causes many professors to teach a watered down version of their subjects. The lack of academic challenge leaves many students unprepared for life outside of college, especially when combined with the school's lack of diversity.

The cafeteria is not great. They lack basic allergen information, and provide very few options for people with even common food concerns, such as lactose intolerance, or information about nuts in desserts. This is dangerous, but they make no effort to change it.

Several dorms do not have air conditioning, and laundry is frequently stolen. The school avoids reporting sexual assaults by victim blaming and requiring impossible standards of evidence. You'll be left with debt and a high-school-like college experience.

My advice is two-fold:Quite BrightPsychology
My advice is two-fold:

1. Go to this school if you would like a quality degree taught by caring professors and staff dedicated to your success.2. Get involved! A liberal-arts school like Bethany allows students to pursue their interests in any field without falling off track of their major. Join clubs, intramurals, and theatre. Try things! Get as much out of your college experience as possible.

Question
The professors do aQuite BrightEducation
The professors do a great job of treating you as a person and they want to see you succeed. The small class sizes allow for great individual attention from the professors. The campus is safe and accessible for all.
