WHAT I LIKED

I enjoyed the people the most. They were so supportive and nice. I made a lot of life-long friendships at this school. The environment was good to be around and the athletics were good, as the boy's basketball team always made it to the championship game!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The student body isn't very diverse, be culturally sensitive and having more black professors/ faculty members.

WHAT I LIKED

BVU is a great college if you are looking for a small community feeling. On-campus everyone knows everyone and the professors are there for you on an academic and personal level.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like BVU because they got rid of the chemistry program.
