| Do not attend BJU. BJU does not respect it's students. They have covered up abuse allegations for decades and they recently expelled a student who started a facebook page highlighting abuse. BJU intimidates and stalks students in violation of US ED policy while accepting federal funds-this is a federal violation. BJU is so petty as to give demerits to students who don't shave. This isn't a college, it's a nursery school. |

| Great friendships formed through the school. Solid enough learning to excel in a classroom whether Christian or public school. The no-accreditation was an issue. In spite of coming through many years after my graduation, the TRACS helped me get the foot in the door at our state's teacher licensing department. What helped most is that I did capture enough concepts in class that 10 plus years later re-taking Praxis I and II yielded me some high scores. TRACS accreditation plus Praxis II high scores granted me my public school licensing in my state. The future regional accreditation will help the most, and our state is so bureaucratic it won't matter to them when the accreditation happened just that it is a regionally accredited school.You definitely need to understand a fundamentalist Christian perspective and hopefully can think for yourself attending this kind of school. Understand that strictly adhering to a university's rules does not yield true spirituality. |

| Bob Jones prides itself on being the bastion of Christian behavior and beliefs. BJU will regulate every aspect of your life. Even if you follow all of the rules with a good spirit, BJU will ship you out if you speak your own mind, no matter how gracious you are. |
And yet Bob Jones University has no problem electing Chuck Phelps back onto its Board of Trustees. Chuck Phelps accused a 15 year old rape victim of having a "dating relationship" with a 38 year old man. Chuck Phelps lied on the witness stand and attempted to cover his tracks with regard to the rape victim. He lied about her and her character. He shipped her out of his church and removed her from his school and her home and sent her to Matt Olson in Colorado so that the police could not find her. This resulted in the 38 year old rapist remaining in good standing in Chuck Phelp's church.
Yet this is the kind of man BJU puts on its trustee board. And not one trustee resists this action or calls out Bob Jones University for this blatant act of looking the other way.
Bob Jones will kick you out of school for doing what Chuck Phelps did. But it elects Phelps to its board.
Now is this really the type of school you want to attend? A school without integrity? A hypocritical, abusive university?You will regret attending here. Please go somewhere else, but don't go to Northland Baptist Bible College. It is run by Chuck's close friend, Matt Olson. I know, I attended both of these places.
