    Tips for prospective students

    As I said before, you will gain friends that you will have for lifetime. If you are wanting to become a pastor, or youth pastor, or anything in the ministry, BBC is the place to be. We are located across the street from the BBFI Missions office, which everybody who comes out of BBC has to be a part of a BBF church.

    In three sentences

    BBC is a great school for higher education with a Biblical basis. We are geared for people who are looking to go into the ministry or have a ministry background in a business they are starting. You will get to know wonderful people here that you will consider a friend for life.

    Campus Safety

    Always security walking around campus. Have an alarm system and personal cards to get into the buildings. Also security cameras. Safety is an major priority here.

    Clubs and Activities

    We have a boys basketball team and a girls volleyball team. Students like to rally up and go to the games. We also have Chapel every Tuesday and Thursday and it is a fun time to worship God and hear a great message.

    Great for these types of students

    Desiring to go in an Education major, Missions, or Pastoral. If you want to get a great education while having fun then this is the place for you!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have just opened up a coffee shop called the White House. Cool place to hang with friends, do homework, and of course drink coffee.

    Bang for the buck

    Have great relationships with Professors and make awesome friends. BBC has an atmosphere that is warm and inviting. Plus year long ice cream in the car (where you eat meals).

    What to do for fun

    The school has a gym that you can do sports in when open as well as a weight room for exercising. They have a Student center with multiple TVs where you can watch TV, movies, or hook up a gaming device. You are also in Springfield and can venture around.

    Food and Dining

    Lets be honest, it won't compare to your normal home-cooked meals by mom and dad. However, they have many choices for food and a salad bar. They also have a Snack Shop where you can go for breakfast and/or lunch.

    Dorm Life

    It's a lot of fun! You make great friends and do many fun activities together. These are the people you are doing school with so you all connect in that way and find more connections as the year goes on.

    Academic Rigor

    It can be very difficult and trying at times, but we have Professors and people here to help in any way possible.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep an open mind about coming here. Many students who go here weren't originally planning on going to this school, but they felt led to be here and love it.

    In three sentences

    A school that greatly cares about your academic achievement and where you are spiritually. The college is always striving to make the school a better place. Great place for opportunities and forming relationships to last a lifetime.

    Campus Safety

    There are always security guards walking around, especially after curfew.

    Clubs and Activities

    The campus is extremely small so their is not any activities besides choir and band if you enjoy that kind of stuff.

    Food and Dining

    There is plenty of food for you to eat and you can get as many plates as you want with many variety of drinks.

    Dorm Life

    I absolutely love my dorm life. I have amazing friends on my floor and an amazing RA who is always willing to help.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes may be hard and some may be easy, just don't be afraid to ask for help if you really need it. The professors are there to help you achieve.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan on attending BBC make sure to arrive early especially if you want a job because their are 6 plus colleges here in Springfield,so its very hard to find a job if you want one.

    In three sentences

    Baptist Bible College is an amazing school to meet amazing students that love God as much as you do. The teachers are always there for you when you need it the most from being ill to having to go home because you have a funeral or somewhat to go to. They are even willing to listen if you just have a problem.

    Great for these types of students

    Students going into fully time ministry or students looking for a good Christian college and getting educated on Biblical values.

    What to do for fun

    On campus many students hang out at the student center, there are a couple of TVs there, a ping pong table, a fuse ball table, and computers that you can use. There is also the gymnasium where you can play basket ball with a group, or go to the weight room to lift some weights. Then there is also the local coffee shop that we just recently opened on campus as well. Springfield is a college town so there is no shortage of things to do around town. There are a few movie theaters, the Battlefield mall, and the square is a popular hang out place in town.

    Food and Dining

    There is a cafe that serves 3 meals a day during the week, a brunch, and dinner on Saturdays, and then just a lunch on Sundays. The food is much better than what I was used to eating during high school, and you have freedom to choose what you want to eat, but it's still not all that great. It's always much better during a special event such as college days.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is alright. There are separate dorm buildings for the men and women, so I couldn't really tell you what dorm life is like for women. As for men though, there are 2 dorm buildings, Smith and Harper. Smith is usually more quiet than Harper, but it really depends on who is on your floor. There is no air conditioning in the men's dorms, so summers can be pretty brutal. Bring a box fan! The heat is controlled by one person on each floor so a space heater always helps too!

    Academic Rigor

    The professors really know what they are talking about! You can expect genuine college level classes for both your general education classes and your biblical classes. They know their Bible and care about your relationship with Christ. There is a pretty small student/teacher ratio, so if you ever need help in classes the teachers are almost always available. There are also study groups for certain classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Best way to see what BBC is all about, is to come for our college days! You stay with students in their dorms for a couple of days, check out some of the classes during the day, and eat at the cafe. Plus there are activities in the evening.

    In three sentences

    BBC is a small college, but has big ambitions. The students here are on fire for God, and the teachers are passionate about helping you with your relationship with God. It's a great place to go if you are looking to go into full time ministry or even looking at a secular degree such as nursing, business, or elementary education and want to be taught on Biblical values.

    Campus Safety

    We have great campus security! The security officers are all very friendly and helpful.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a great christian education with the lowest price in the country! BBC is becoming THE school for ministry degrees!

    What to do for fun

    We have a student center with three tv's that can be connected to gaming consoles. We also have a coffee shop that is great for studying or hanging out!

    Food and Dining

    The food is moderate, but it is going through changes that should improve it greatly! The snack shop is always a great choice!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is fun! However, the dorms are a little outdated (it is an old campus after all).

    Academic Rigor

    The teachers challenge you both intellectually and spiritually.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to look at our new scholarships offered to freshmen!

    In three sentences

    Baptist Bible College is an excellent school for many degrees. They offer many ministry degrees along with degrees in Education, Business, and Nursing (with the cooperation of Cox Nursing Program). BBC is the perfect school for any christian that wants to stay in a safe environment.

    Campus Safety

    There is at least one Security officer on duty at all times (small campus). Security cameras are located around campus. Must have a fob and pin number to access dorms, and a fob to access other campus buildings. On campus crime is extremely rare, and not by students. The neighborhood is close to a bad one, but campus is considered safe. The only crime I have heard about in the years I have been here are break-ins to unlocked cars, by those in the community, not those in school. Escorts are available at any time, and especially after curfew.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are several music groups, a drama group, girl's volleyball and boy's basketball, education/major related groups and student government. However, new clubs are being added all the time. There is a once a semester horde vs. resistance game.

    Great for these types of students

    Those going into ministry, or who want a Biblical foundation in their chosen career. We offer degrees in ministry, as well as education, business, nursing, and counseling.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Friends of newly engaged students throw them a shower.

    Bang for the buck

    BBC is a lot less pricey than similar private colleges.

    What to do for fun

    There is a student center where all students can gather for games, ping pong, computer usage, television, and general socializing. Each dorm also has a lounge where students can gather. Off campus, there are many concerts and other events to attend. The Bass Pro national headquarters is located here, and it is fun whether or not you like fishing and hunting. We are about an hour from Branson if Springfield does not have enough activities. Springfield is the third largest city in the state (after St. Louis and Kansas City), so we typically get a lot of events.

    Food and Dining

    In the past, the dining has been less than stellar, but that is changing for the better. There is a Patriot cafe for breakfast and lunch, the cafeteria for lunch and dinner, and a coffee shop that is open in the mornings and evenings.

    Dorm Life

    Girls and boys have separate dorms. There is a curfew of midnight, but that is not a problem because there is nothing good to do past midnight anyways, and you can get exceptions for emergencies, church events, and work. You are typically two to a room, with shared bathrooms and showers for each floor.

    Academic Rigor

    I find the rigor perfectly challenging, and I was a National Merit finalist. Some degrees are more challenging than others (Education). You will get out of it what you put into it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Plan on applying for outside scholarships. There are not very many in school scholarships available, although that number is increasing for new students. However, the cost of attending is much lower than that of typical private colleges.

    In three sentences

    Baptist Bible College is a great school for those who would like to expand their Biblical foundations and possibly go into ministry, although it is not limited to those students. It is a small college, so you pretty much know everybody there. The professors really care about you, not just the grades you are getting in their classes.
