    Campus Safety

    Because of where the college is located, the safety is exellant, the police station is right behind the college as well as the fire station so if an emergency would occur help would arrive in seconds

    Greek Life

    there is one fraternity which is named lambda omega epsilon but is called LEO for short and a sorority which is named pi phi psi and as of this recent semester a chapter of Gamma Beta Phi was brought in which is the national honors society.

    Beacon college is located in a small retirement town called leesburg, it is well intergrated in to the historic downtown.

    Bang for the buck

    in terms of those with the need for this particular curriculum versus the curriculum of a regular college though the cost is relatively the same the success rate is far more greater.

    What to do for fun

    Because of where the college is located there are shuttled that will take you anywhere, such as Disney, universal, the mall at mellinia and the outlet mall . all of this in fact is located in Orlando FL which is only an hour away from Beacon. The school also provide a lot of activities such as free bowling, movie nights, as well as themed parties which can be quite fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining aspect of Beacon college is pretty cool as well. the food hall also known as the chopping block is a restaurant style set up where you can order made in front of you sandwiches, you can order gourmet meals from the kitchen as well as an all you can eat buffet. the meals are covered in the tuition.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is actually quite nice. The dorms are set up in apartment styles. each apratment has its own kitchen , bathrooms, and washer and dryer set, as well as internet and wifi.

    Academic Rigor

    The Academic rigor of this school is modified to fit the needs of each individual students as they have been assessed.This school has resources such as learning specialist that help each student one on one with their work if needed, as well as an awesome writing center that will you can got to to get papers done. the writing center aides help you write and correct your papers for whatever class that you writing for. they even teach you the different styles of paper writing as well.

    I must say Beacon College is focused on learning your learning style for your ability to achieve in the class rooms. The Class sizes are very small 15-8 students per class. Beacon College also goes by a critical thinking method that challenges students ability to think critically outside the box.

    Campus Safety

    Beacon College is in the Historic downtown area of Leesburg, Florida. There is a lot of bike paths around the town and the problem is that there is a lot of homeless people around. Sometimes the homeless people follow students from Beacon especially the girls, girls are not allowed to walk out at night without a male or a group of others.

    Greek Life

    Yes there is Greek life, there is only a male organization. There was girls organization but it was shut down.

    Clubs and Activities

    They have many clubs to choose from: Performance Club, Activities Club, Art Club, Comic club, Theater Goers Club etc...

    What to do for fun

    Leesburg, Florida is in Central Florida. Its about an 1 hour to 15 minutes from Walt Disney World or Orlando, Florida. 2 hours from St. Augustine, Florida, 30 minutes from Ocala, Florida. There is a lot of things to do around Leesburg. It has a mall, many restaurants, wal-mart, whatever you need.

    Food and Dining

    The time for food and dining is during lunch. Breakfast the eggs are over-done, the pancakes are hard. Supper all they bake is chicken and sometimes it makes the students at Beacon sick.

    Dorm Life

    Life on campus can be very entertaining. The school has three spots for dorm life. We have swimming pool and a basketball court. The Beacon Villages is about 4 blocks from the school, Woodward apartments is behind the school and behind the police station and they just opened a new apartment building for the school. You get your own appliances, like washer and dryer you don't have to buy your own quarters so wash your clothes. A fridge, and a stove, basically your own kitchen. A large living room, a shared bathroom and then you can get a single room or a shared room. The dorm life is really nice.

    Academic Rigor

    The Academics is spot it. This school is very good with their students. They help you with everything. The school is small but it gives you enough time to learn and every teacher knows you by your first name, not a number.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you apply for financial aid make sure your on their tail about grants and scholarships because they're are known to screw people.

    In three sentences

    Beacon College is a accredited college for students who has learning disabilities. Beacon College gives out best education for their students. But also Beacon College is hard to get in, especially when you try to apply for financial aid.
