    BBC has a great campus atmosphere. It is like a big family, where everyone is willing to support and encourage one another. There are a ton of campus activities like Open Mic, Lip Sync, Spring Banquet, and lots of movie nights to help students relax from studies. The only negative about BBC is that the rules are rather strict. It is ok to deal with for 4 years with breaks in the summer, but I couldn't handle the constant supervision and legalistic systems for any longer than that.

    For the most part, I enjoy living on campus at BBC. I did (and still do) feel a little awkward since I am part of a family that is not spiritual/Christian & I am a public-school educated person. I was very much involved in the world, also, so sometimes it's hard relating to others who have only been part of a Christian background without the experiences I've dealt with in life. I am also a person who has visible tattoos and stretched earlobes, which does make me feel awkward being around other people who have probably only seen people who look like me in public. I do enjoy that people talk to me regardless of these differences, and the people that I associate/are friends with from college are so in love with God & enjoy me as a person--they do not see me as a person who looks completely ridiculous/weird. Students (and faculty) on campus are quite friendly, and for the most part will either stop & chat with you or at least acknowledge your existence with a wave/smile/hello. A downside to being on campus, however, is that you feel like you're in a BBC bubble until you go off-campus. If you do not drive/own a vehicle, you may feel stuck on campus, but there are people that are willing to take you places if you ask them (or they can find someone who can do that for you). When the weather's nice, you are able to walk to random places for things you may need--but if you like going to Wal-Mart and such, you may want to have a vehicle. Aesthetically, the campus is extremely beautiful. The pond located near the entrance of the school is wonderful, and I love being around it, since it is so serene. Jackson Hall is such a gorgeous building--especially if you go into the second floor library. Your breath will be taken away.

    Being a freshman is super hard at first. I came to Baptist Bible College knowing not a soul. I was nervous and scared; I didn't think I would be able to handle college because I had been home schooled for high school. I was so surprised by the friendliness of everyone on campus. With only around 700 students, our campus is very tight knit. If you cannot know everyone by name, at least you can recognize their faces! It was so neat meeting new people and making lots of friends. There's so many ways to meet new people here. I love music, so I'm in the concert choir. I was also in our fall musical Sound of Music. My major is Missions; every Monday night we have a Student Missions Forum. We hear someone speak about their work over seas and we have prayer groups. It's a great time of encouragement. And there's so many other ways to get involved as well.

    The campus is small but the people there are very welcoming and extremely friendly. The buildings are beautiful and the teachers are truly interested in getting to know you one on one. The dorms are set up in such a way that the people interact and become close friends.
