I'm not going to bash BC, since it seems as though once upon a time they did hold a credible spot in the higher education field but those days are long gone. Students that attend this college rather do drugs then have stimulating conversations with their peers, which makes it hard for anyone with half a brain to stay active on campus. The teachers are friendly but have no real world experience and typically talk about themselves with an airy feeling of grandeur.

The campus is filled with students that wait for the opportunity to steal, even if it the object is worth nothing more than a dollar. The admissions board has no interest in recruiting students that aspire to be the "Steve Jobs," of the world instead they want the "Tom Brady's." I laugh at this notion, especially since the football team is in a D3 league with no hope of winning a PAC ... The College would be fine if it had even a slight population interested in learning, instead you have a 99% population on scholarships that do more drugs then humanly possible and the 1% that are interested in learning barely come out of their dorms from fear of the other hooligans on campus. To say the least coming to Bethany was the single worst decision I've ever made in my life and I hope to leave as soon as possible...

this school is over priced, and if you make 1 mistake the whole school is quick to label. and trust me anything you do there will be known by both staff and students, so in other words its like high school all over again. my final piece of advice is be aware of the racism there. its not as obvious but as you spend more time there you will understand. for example how security hassles the dorms that pro-dominantly black for smoking weed, but dont bother the pro-dominantly white greek houses that sell and also smoke the weed. but not everything is bad there. they have some great teachers but also some that should not b there

After reading some of the previous critiques of BC, I realize that the complaints mainly come from the Equestrian Program. (Ellen Fischer is a really difficult person to get along with and basically ruined lives and educations)

The new facility that they use is absolutely beautiful with wonderful people. The trainers are top notch, and offer great opportunities now, and in the future.
