Bob Jones University
Bob Jones University - Comments and Student Experiences|
BJU hurt me by stealing six of the prime years of my life.
BJU hurt me by lying to me about the value of a BJU degree.
BJU hurt my parents by stealing their retirement funds.
I should have known what "unaccredited" meant.
I should have left after my sophomore year.
I recommend H.S. students avoid this place like the plague. I recommend college students run from this place.
If you are already enrolled here QUIT! Cut your loses. There is no shame in being a quitter when quitting is in your best interest. Enroll at your local instate State University and pursue your passions. Live your life now! Don't wait to start living your life at some point in the future.
What do you think you should have known/done?
I should have known that when Bob Jones University claimed itself to be the Harvard and Yale of Christian schools that I was being lied to. The open admissions policy should have been a clue, and the lack of accreditation, and the lack of Phds on the faculty, and so on.
What should I have done?
I should have gone to a much cheaper State University and gotten a real higher-education experience that would have better met my goals and needs. But. I was a Mennonite kid who wanted desperately to remake himself as a professional man. And I knew nothing of the outside world, much less of the outside world of higher education. I was defenseless against the Bob Jones scam. Me and my parents were cruelly misled as to what this school is.
The only thing I can do now -- the only good I can salvage from this injustice -- is to steer as many naive, fundy kids (and their parents) away from this school as possible.
I no longer believe in an afterlife. But if there is an afterlife -- one that includes justice -- these people will pay a heavy price for their deceit.
