BBC only offers scholarships to upcoming freshman and seniors, but they are very helpful with finding outside sources of income! The financial advisers will help find work study options, grants, and loans. They frequently check up on the students to make sure that they're in good standing. There are also on campus jobs available.

There are a lot of options around BBC for off campus housing. However, BBC has strict rules for living off campus. Unless if you are a resident of Springfield and live with a legal guardian, you have to be 24 years old to live of campus.

I'm in the Elementary Education program and it is an excellent program! The advisers and Professors are always available to help. The program offers many opportunities to have hands on experience volunteering in schools before practicum. All of the Professors have been elementary education teachers in the past and offer a lot of wonderful experience and knowledge.

Living on campus is getting better. We have a student center where people go to hang out, watch movies, play video games, ping pong, and board games. We have recently opened up a coffee shop on campus where students can go to get coffee and hang out or do homework. It's a really nice spot and great addition. The dorms are hopping after curfew at night and many times if studying isn't being done, people are hanging out in the lounge rooms with each other. Girls are in their dorms and guys are in another building.

There are actually many different opportunities for internships offered at BBC. Students are required to intern at their local church in ministries to gain practical experience as they learn in class. The students at BBC are normally very enthusiastic about doing internships because they are excited to learn more. There are very rarely offer any paid internships, unless it is a privately offered one, by a pastor or another leader seeking to help out a student. Required internships usually last 8-12 weeks with a certain number or required hours. Other internships widely vary in their time commitments. I plan on interning through my church for a semester and then also seeking an internship immediately following graduation.

Being in the Intercultural Studies program at BBC, students are required to not only attend classes, but also do some hands-on work, such as a "directed field study". This is where students take part in a trip the is more than a missions trip, but is also educational in the aspects of learning how another culture functions and how to adapt to it. Classes are geared toward learning about culture, how to apply the bible to a culture, how to learn a language, how to survive culture shock and how to effectively minister to people. The professors are amazing and so helpful. They genuinely want you to learn and they have much experience in the area they are teaching. Many of them have been missionaries themselves or worked within another culture. Their knowledge is invaluable.

I am really happy with the Intercultural Studies program. I love learning about the Bible and other cultures around the world and being able to experience them too. I hope that I will be able to have the chance to travel to different countries and be a servant to the people and use what I have learned in class to reach the people. Finding a job with this specific degree might definitely be a challenge, but my goal is not to become rich, but to be involved in ministry, which is far more rewarding than having money. It's hard sometimes because there are many people who don't understand why I would want to be in a position that could be hard and doesn't pay well. There is much disapproval, but I know that if I follow what God wants me to do, he will take care of me.

Students have their own vehicles so get around town or go home as needed.

We have a small campus, not even taking up one block of property. But being a smaller Christian school, the family feel is awesome. Everyone knows everyone and there's nothing really hidden between people.
College Sophomore 2013-03-28T14:11:32Z
The school is over 50 years old. Like every school, it has its positives and negatives. But its a great place to spend your college years, and the at home feel is awesome!

They are very affordable, many offering student discounts. It's never a problem to find something cheap, quick, and even healthy.

I live off campus. I hear great things about living on campus.

Our campus is located on a main street, so we have a lot of food options. Many of them are not nice, sit-down restaurants, but for college students, the dollar menu is great. If the students wanted a nice place to go eat, they wouldn't have to drive too far (about 5-10 miles).
College Senior 2013-01-19T23:15:07Z
My campus is old, and I know that we don't have a lot of money to get things updated. I can tell that improvements are being made, such as painting. I feel that my school does the best that they can with the facilities that we do have. We had our student center updated this past year, and some modifications to our gym this year. Things are looking good.

I attend a Bible college, so no drugs are permitted on campus. I have no doubt that some people do drugs off campus, but on campus there are none. If the school finds out about any drug abuse, the student is asked to leave the school.

I received a lot of financial aid my freshman year because of scholarships, but as you go through your college career, they tend to take some scholarships away, and suggest you take out loans.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T05:16:52Z
Students themselves are definitely not pressured into anything like that. We live in the Meth capital of the United States, but it isn't bad on campus.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T05:16:06Z
The professors are great. They are encouraging and very willing to work with the students. The registration process is fine.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T05:14:18Z
I love my major. It is so encouraging and has great faculty to back it up!

The cafe gets a worse rep than it deserves. The food is good for what it is worth - and you get all the food you want.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T05:11:45Z
The weather really doesn't affect it too much. The heat makes the dorms bad for the guys, since they have no air conditioning.
College Sophomore 2012-12-31T05:10:35Z
They are dependable, but not necessarily the fastest.

The weather is not affect of what i have seen. All i have ever needed was my winter coat.

The places around campus are good. You get kind of get tired of eating the same thing everyday, but when you need something to eat between classes, you can't complain. The food isn't bad, it just gets old sometimes.
College Sophomore 2012-12-19T21:37:35Z
There is only one parking spot and the students have to park in the back after curfew but during the day we are more then welcome to park in Donaldson or the cafe pit. there is no cost to get a parking permit but if you don't park in the back after curfew you are fined.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
