| I think I got a good education. I'm sure I would have learned more in computer science if I would have attended a better known school. I think most of the professors are very knowledgable. They are very open to working with you when you have problems. The rules are very strict, so don't go there thinking it will be easy. I think you should make it a matter of prayer and make a commitment to finish at BJU if you start rather than going in blindly. I recommend visiting the school (not just during the public visitation times). |

| You definitely learn discipline at BJU. I think it's a very safe campus. I'm sure I didn't miss all the partying that you find at public universities. Overall, I had a good experience at BJU, but I'm also glad I'm finished. :) |

| I wish that I had known more about other colleges and universities before attending BJU. I came there strong in what I believed. I actually thought that I was going to a place where, after years of attending public school, I would finally fit in. While in high school, because of my own convictions and beliefs, I didn't do certain things. At Bob Jones, I was treated as if I was the worst heathen because my church youth group took trips to the beach or went to a public bowling alley. I had roommates preach to me about wearing pants and swimming with members of the opposite sex.|
I went to Bob Jones because I wanted to be at a Christian university and learn Christian principles. By my sophomore year, I was so confused and mixed up, I didn't know what the devil leading me astray or God trying to direct me. I had decided to go home and sit out a semester, look at other places, and that day in chapel it was preached that "some of you are thinking about leaving here and following the devil straight to hell". Regretfully, I stayed. I learned to switch off my mind and just always say that I believed whatever they told me to believe. I stopped questioning because that always got me labeled as "not as spiritual" or not as good a Christian.
It has taken me years to get over going to BJU. My faith and Christian life suffered because of going there. I came there sure in what I believed and left wondering if any of it was real. I feel that I went through a cult or brainwashing type of experience. I wish I had left instead of staying and learning to just keep my thoughts and opinions to myself.That said, I think that I got a good education. I have been able to find jobs and for me, my BJU degree has not been a problem or obstacle in getting a job.
