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.
Tips for prospective students
Be yourself and make new friends. Challenge your brain and join student organizations. Aim For the Honor Society on campus and best of all Graduate from Beacon College.

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.
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.

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

there are many clubs and activities that student are involved in such as the cooking club, the golf goers club, student government, and much more. there are always new clubs coming out each year based on the interest of the students.
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.
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
