I suggest only going to BJU if you are willing and able to obey the rules. Otherwise you'll hate it. If you can stand some regulation, however, the school is good for a lot of people. Not everyone though. Definitely not everyone.

Students have a lot to say about the school’s strictness and rules. Some students refer to BJU as a prison since there are so many rules. The school does not tolerate bad influences from students, such as drugs and alcohol. At the same time, the school regulates students’ social life. BJU has a strict dress code where students must wear certain types of clothing for certain occasions. Couples are not allowed to have any form of physical contact or even go off campus for a date. Dance music is prohibited, along with owning headphones. BJU has a dermit system with punishment: 50 demerits sends a warning home to parents; 75 requires student counseling with the RA, and 150 sends the student home. The most common thing that students receive demerits for is failing room inspection. Students get a room assignment, and each morning RAs check the room. When students fail, they get demerits, and these can easily pile up.
Overall, the school has a good reputation for not tolerating bad influences; however, the administration needs to work on being flexible with the students. RAs and dorm supervisors are a little bit more lenient in terms of communication. On the bright side, the rules keep changing each year. Recently, BJU got rid of dress code rules involving ties for male students and panty hose for female students.
