Worst college experience EVER! So unorganized and theyAverageNursing
Worst college experience EVER! So unorganized and they only care about how many sports students they can recruit to get money. The dorms and building are falling down. Alcohol and pot parties nightly at the dorms (these are student athletes) Campus police is a joke and will do nothing. Housing was made aware of drug use but the coach did not want to drug test. Wonder if NAIA would like to know this? One female basketball player got alcohol poisoning and was taken by ambulance to hospital. No consequences was playing in next game. Assistant coach uses God's name in vain and drops the F bomb constantly during practice/workout. So much for a "Christian" based school. Honestly, if you can go ANYWHERE else do so. This school is overpriced and horrible. Financial aid gave me an award check then months later said they overpaid me and I'd have to pay it back WTH??? President is well aware and chooses to do nothing. Very disappointed in my first college experience.

Question
Was recruited to play baseball.AverageBusiness - Management and Administration
Was recruited to play baseball. Checked in and went to 1 class and then decided that Bacone was not for me. I am amazed of the people who stay there. Maybe there is no other option. The dorm (old hotel) is disgusting with mold on the walls with sprayed white paint of it. The pool in the center is filled with sewer water, beer cans, old toilet seats and trash. The stairs to the second floor are broken or missing and wood put in place of cement stairs. I was amazed the way the property looked on move in day. The class rooms were very outdated with broken desks and very old chalk boards. Some rooms even has old rotary dial phones on the wall. Not much money spent in the education area. The only reason the baseball field looked so good was because of volunteers from the team.Unless you have no other option? I would go to a JUCO before Bacone.

Question
If Bacone College was truly a college thatQuite BrightEducation
If Bacone College was truly a college that provided an education to American Indians in a Christian environment (which is the mission of Bacone) the problems that exist on the campus currently would not be going on. The president of Bacone College cares nothing about the American Indians, and nothing about the overall student body! He is condescending, arrogant, unapproachable, and publicly criticizes students, parents, faculty and staff. He needs to be gone! He enjoys having students arrested (by his SON that is also on the payroll), and then brags about it in meetings on campus! If I had known this 4 years ago I would not have wasted over $40,000 in student loans (that I cannot pay back because I cannot get a job with this worthless degree from Bacone). No one will hire a Bacone College graduate, because Bacone is not really a college nor university! The department of education needs to cease sending any money to Bacone and cease ASAP!!! Someone needs to look into the number of students that enroll at Bacone each semester, and see how many of them actually graduate. NOT VERY MANY. I was told more dropout each year than graduate!!!!!
