Anyone attending BJU needs to understand a few things about the school. It is up to you to decide whether they are good or bad.
First, it is a liberal arts college. You will be taking scads of courses that have nothing whatever to do with your major.
Second, it is a fundamental, bible believing and teaching school. there are serious rules to be followed about dress, behavior, and dating. They are rigidly enforced with a vast network of snitches.
Thirdly, it is a niche school. Outside of BJU circles your degree may not be recognized and sometimes you may need to apologize for the school in interviews. To many people, it is still perceived as a racist, narrow minded cult and to be honest, it is.
I found the school to be cold, unfriendly and almost hostile to male students. The students are perceived as the enemy to the reputation of the school, so they must be watched and controlled with fanatical energy.
Only my naivete kept me at the school after a snitch reported me for taking too long a shower.
In four years my student advisor saw me for 10 minutes my junior year and only then after I about beat his door down.
All told I had one teacher that I thought cared about me. The others made it abundantly clear I was little more than a worm to them to be tolerated. I believe to this day some of them never did learn my name even after taking several classes with them.
The rules are not really that big a deal but the worst part is the head games they play with snitches, monitors, roommates and other spies they use to make sure no one will harm the all important reputation of the school. Which is laughable considering the reputation of the school outside of BJU circles. Understand this, you are not worth anything to them. They care only about the reputation of the school.
Students are slave labor for them. You will never know what you are being paid, the hours that were reported for you, or anything else you should be able to know.Getting the idea yet??
