| Try challenging yourself and attending a public college - all the while practicing your Christian faith. You'll have a much stronger foundation for your faith than if you attend a mind-numbing college like BJU. At a public, non-christian college, you will find other christians practicing their faith BECAUSE THEY WANT TO, not because they are forced to. Instead of finding multitudes of "christian" students whose main goal is finding away around the rules, at a public college you'll find christian students who are eager to follow god's word and live honest lives. Anybody can act like a christian when the rules demand it, but only true christians know how to act when rules don't demand it! |

| Piece of shit school. Oh, Dear God, what a shitty ass university. God does not dwell in the churches and classes of this school. closed minded individuals who aim to turn you into an inhumane....thing.|
Tolerance is preached but NEVER demonstrated.
I think I had a dream the first week I was there about burning the damn place down- Bob Jones and All. That, my friends, would've made that place awesome. otherwise, it's a manipulative, opressive, and downright incompetent place to grow and learn as an individual.
if you like sitting down and memorizing things just the way they were taught to you and you have no need for a social life outside campus, or being able to have political, social, religious discussions about anything other than what is preached, then honey, let me tell you now, this school is perfect for a dumbass like you.
Honestly. if you want a religious school with good preperation- there are several well near the area of Bob Jones if the location is desireable. but honestly, the school is a piece of dirt that needs to be rubbed out of the map with an eraser.
The rules are dumber than they are- I've also experienced 'mail altering' that I read someone else had. yeah. and if you like friends who'd rat you out in a hear beat so that the school will consider them to be more christian like and give them a nice pat on the head, then perfect. you've found the college of your dreams.
I wasn't even challenged by their educations. I don't understand the bullshit all the other brain washed "positive" responses are telling you. If BJU was toilet paper, I wouldn't even fucking wipe my ass with it.

| Beware...the Pharisees are in charge. The entire school system is based on turning people in - from dorm life to scholastic work. Thinking is not encouraged or tolerated - especially ideas that differ from the administration's. Debate is limited. Ideas and creativity are discouraged. Learning is rote memorization - people, dates, times, places - underlying motives are not usually included. Don't be fooled by the nice, safe campus. The rules are strict and enforcement is brutal. There is no grace and one is assumed guilty until proven innocent (if that is possible). |
At the time I was there, the voice department was very subpar - everything was in "head" voice, "chest" voice was discouraged. It wasn't until I found a real voice teacher that I really learned to sing. I hope it's different now. However, you'll never study jazz or any contemporary expressions of music there, so think seriously before majoring in music there. You might need jazz or show tunes or contemporary Christian music in your repertoire to make a living later.The best thing about BJU were the operas and Shakespearean plays - they were extremely well done and gave me a great appreciation of fine arts. The collection of sacred art is fantastic! But go to Furman or Clemson and attend the plays and operas as outsiders.
