|T totally know how you feel..My first year at BJU was as a senior in the Academy. First year of college was exactly as you have stated. I couldn't stand anymore and
went home at the end of lst semester.Finally let out of prison|
|Bob Jones is not a school or church, but a cult posing as a church-based school. My sister and I sustained extended and severe emotional, psychological, and physical trauma (corporal punishment) at the hands of Bob Jones. The brain washing is excessive and like nothing I have seen in the 3 decades since I finally escaped. My sister escaped a different way: she committed suicide. Parents, if you are thinking of sending your children here, think again.|

|Amazing....I spent 10 years there and NEVER experienced anything close to this. I loved it there, and have life long friendships all over the world from my years there. I received an excellent educationg that I use daily in my vocation.|
|My friend is going to go to BJU any advice?|
|Tell your friend to go elsewhere.|

|I graduated from BJU with a BA. Maybe I should say I "survived" BJU, too! I am grateful to the some of the very selfless faculty I met while there for their humble attitudes and wonderful testimonies. Yet, I am sad to say that the atmosphere also lended itself to things I wish I had not been exposed to. The most disturbing of all is the many women I know who married BoJo men who ended up running for their literal lives due to abusive relationships. My sister is one of them. I personally know many others. What is BJU teaching their male students in those "preacher boy" classes?? On a not as serious note, I do feel for those who believe that following all the BJU rules from birth will make them Christians and "better" than others. The faculty children who attend for free particularity tended to have an air of condescending arrogance toward anyone "outside their circle." Yet, they were consistently chosen for the best roles in any event even when there were more qualified students who were paying full-price who probably should have been chosen instead. I also find it disturbing that the Bob Jones family did not attend a church themselves, but required it of their faculty, staff and students while "controlling" surrounding churches with their BJU demands. I have wondered if I attended a "cult" school when I look back and see how students were to tell on each other as a "duty." We call it the "tattle-tale" school because of this. So, sadly, I cannot recommend BJU to my own children. I still do pray for the school and the people there. There are some very good people who genuinely are Christians at BJU, but you will have to search hard for them. You will know them by their noses not being in the air and they keep most of their opinions to themselves. If they did not%u2026.they would not last long.|
|I was also seventeen when I attended as a freshman and was there for seven years. I'm in my 50's now, and I still have nightmares about the place...floating naked in the amphitorium...being locked out of the post office so I can't get my chapel seat assignment...forgetting my lines during vespers...really awful experience.|
