I fully recommend this college to anyone whoChemistry
I fully recommend this college to anyone who wants a quality Christian education. Bob Jones University is a different college which does have rules. Most people who I knew that attended the college did not agree with the rules, but still abided by them while in college. While the rules are tough it makes the rules in your future workplace seem quite easy. I have attended other colleges and Bob Jones did provide me with an education that was equivalent to or better than a good secular education. The structure at the school helped me to discipline myself, which has equated to an excellent work ethic and the discipline that I needed to suceed. There is a lot of talk about how the rules and philosphy hinder you and restrict your freedom of speech or your ability to discuss issues. This notion is utter nonsense. It is the worlds attempt to fool you into thinking that no rules and no restrictions truly means freedom. This was accomplished at the Garden of Eden and continues today all the more stronger. We have rules and consequences for not following rules everyday of our life. It is the weak in character and discipline who believe that they do not need rules. The Christian life is one of discipline. While most of us who graduate from BJ do not follow all of the "strict" rules (i.e. lights out by 10pm, although I wish I could continue this one), I believe the rules will make you a better person, both in your career, your family and your Christian life.

Do not let the accreditation issue disuade you from this school. I personally know many individuals who have graduated from BJ and have gone on to excellent grad schools (i.e. Northwestern, Duke, Harvard, Stanford, Univeristy of Chicago....) with absolutely no problem getting in. Most of the people who do not get into grad schools do not get in because of many other issues (bad grades, placement exams...) and they like to blame it on accreditation. I personally do not know of anyone who did not get into grad school because of the school's lack of accreditation.

As I have moved up the career ladder, I am continually amazed at the number of people who look favorably at the college or who have graduated from the college. There are many political and senior management indivduals who have graduated from the college.I would fully recommend this college.

A great education in a quality, Christian environment. Demanding courses, tough discipline, but a good preparation for life.
