College, in a nutshell, is just a continuation of high
school. Yes, it is a beautiful campus with an endless
abundance of outdoor activities, but that's as good as it
The tuition is way too high for what
the education is, they just think because it's private it
is worth the price. In all reality there are really
no major/minor departments. If you ask around the campus some
professors never obtained a degree in the department they are
teaching, just something in similarity. If you ask students (ones
that don't work for the admissions office), you will hear
the pain in their voice when describing the education value.
Classes are organized like high school, you have attendance,
and the work is pointless. Brevard requires students to take
Brevard College Experience courses that are pointless and have nothing
to do with the college. The credits don't transfer; they
purposely do this because they don't want to lose a
student. I felt like I didn't learn anything that would
help me in the real world.
When walking around
campus, in the dorms, and the cafeteria, it is obvious
that the student body is only there because they couldn't
decide what to do with their lives. They act like
children in the cafeteria, loud, annoying, and immature. Like I
said, a continuation of high school.
The school is
revolved around their good-for-nothing football team. There isn't even a
football field for them to play/practice on. Like high school,
the football players are immature and are given anything they
want. Which plays into the safety aspect of the college.
I personally had to endure my vehicle being broken into
and having items stolen. Many other students had their vehicles
broken into, but nothing was done to stop the break
ins. Finally some football players were caught with the stolen
items in their dorms, but do you think they were
penalized? I saw them the very next day in classes.
After speaking with the campus security and Brevard police, they
simply said to file a report and they will call
me. I never got my stolen items back and the
suspects were still attending classes, even though it was completely
obvious they were guilty of robbery. So basically football players
are praised no matter what they do.
life on campus is sad. Personally, I didn?t trust anyone
with my business, because since it is such a small
college in a boring town, word travels fast. The student
body is divided by what sports team you are on,
and then the rest of the students form their own
little groups seeing as though the majority of the college
is athletes. Which makes since seeing as though only 650
people are enrolled at Brevard. The athletic department may appear
promising, but the average athlete is only at Brevard to
play the sport they are playing. I got to experience
being on one of the college?s team for a semester?that?s
all I could handle. The athletic department is a joke,
if you just want to play around and skimp by
in college, then Brevard is the place for you.
I wanted a solid, promising, fun, and worthwhile experience? Brevard
failed in all areas. My coach was a really nice
person with great manipulation skills. Unfortunately I fell for the
empty promises and statements that I would be treated equally.
In a nutshell, I was ignored, taken for granted, my
workout schedules were cookie-cutter, and my teammates didn?t respect me.
(You have your own opinion, but if I told you
the entire story, you would understand all of my statements
My dorm life was awful. My room
was in terrible condition; my bathroom had mold growing everywhere,
my bed was cut up and vandalized, there was no
air conditioning, my door would never shut completely, and the
space was tiny. Besides living in what seemed a hot
box, I never got one night of peaceful sleep. The
other students in my dorm would run around loudly, scream,
and stay up very late. There was no respect or
other?s privacy and quiet time. I would probably be able
to fall asleep around 2 am every night, which is
when they would either go to bed or pass out
from being bored-drunk. When it came time to studying, I
had to hunt for a quiet spot on campus, which
usually was upstairs of the library. The library is the
best place because nobody is ever in there!
in all I would recommend this school to someone who
doesn?t want to do hard work, get by easily, be
a mediocre athlete, and basically stay in high school for
another four years. If you actually want to stand out,
make a name for yourself, get a great education, and
enjoy your years in college, DO NOT GO TO BREVARD COLLEGE!!!
Hope my honesty helps make your decision.
