The "advisors" change with the seasons.Bright
The "advisors" change with the seasons. mine were usually kids, who did not know what they were doing, couldn't answer questions, did not follow through on what they were to do. And the final straw was that Therold, he was a bully, had insultive, hurtful, and made me want to drop out. Turned out the problem was Belahven financial aid FAILED to send me a form they needed filled out and allowed me to attend an entire hemester wihtou it. Therold blamed me for the blunder and when he was proven wrong, never apolgized, never did recover. I had to be assigned another advisor, Ryan who was very nice, got v me this far, but now he is gone... That bully said I have to deal with him again, and again my registration is screwed up!. Classes start today and I do not have access, I am scared to even have to call him, he is so mean and hateful. I only need 3 classes to gradute.... but it feels like a trap! I have placed 3 calls to administration/finance.. no one calls back. If you need to be able to focus on your work, family and school, do not choose Belhaven. Just making sure the staff does their job becomes all time consuming. Many of my teachers failed to provide me with their contact information, making them unaccessable. Although I did have about 3 instructors who gave thier information on day 1 of class that was wonderful, but its the lazy ones who are just collecting a paycheck that make the experience such a miserable one.

Question
I am a senior at Belhaven, I wentQuite BrightEducation
I am a senior at Belhaven, I went there because it is a Christian university and I wanted a school that believed in core values and was just a school where everyone studied by day and partied at night. The first school I visited was Belhaven, and the minute I first stepped on campus I knew I wanted to go to school there. It was such a peaceful feeling, and even though I visited Mississippi College, the feeling was not the same, and I've been at Belhaven ever since. I like the fact that Belhaven is a small school, everyone knows everyone, you are able to have small classes and get to know your professors. I have liked most of my professors, and most of the classes have been good and contained good information. However, I am not happy that in such a small school that there were cliques once everyone got to know each other, and if you're not in a clique, you're left out. I also did not like some of the events being presented on campus, they contradicted the overall message the school portrays. Taking that a step further, I am a Christian with stricter values than the school represents and I felt that some of the things the school supported were too worldly for a Christian school. But the friends you do make, they are sweet and fun to be around, and I have enjoyed making events to celebrate different milestones in each other's lives. If anyone is looking for a small, close-knitted atmosphere with some Christian values, this is the school for you.

Belhaven provides an excellent education for a small to mid-sized Christian college. Going to college to get a better job is a thing of the past; nearly everyone goes to college today. That said, Belhaven offers practical, academic, and religious training; the experiences and opportunities that Belhaven provides help students to succeed in the "real-world" and in all their other endeavors.
