Everyday I learn something new from the teachers and students on campus. I learned that smaller schools are great schools to go to if you are really worried bout your education; they want you to pass higher than a C (you can only pass classes if you have a C or higher)

    This school of full of hypocrisy and judgement. The food is hardly edible. The degree is worthless. Central Christian College of Kansas is not a place for intelligent individuals.

    I rate Buena Vista University 8/10. Because Buena Vista is a smaller University, the teachers and faculty have always been able to help me, making my first semester a fantastic one. Buena Vista University is also a place where I can express my creativity in their 24 hour art studios and experience different opportunities.

    Buena Vista is a flexible school for adult working students. It is great if you are returning to school but work full time during the day because the classes are all at night or online. Very easy to get accepted into the school.

    In 2010, the online program at Buena Vista University was a great find when we were attempting a move to Iowa. I give them a ***10*** for their meticulous care and patience with me. They did not allow me to fall through the cracks, so that I may start on Monday for my first term!
