What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Definitely schedule a visit on campus. The campus itself is very beautiful. Be sure to apply early and apply for all the scholarships you can get, especially from Cappex. They will help your family be able to afford this tuition and make it possible for college to happen for you!
Andrea from Louisville, KY
Visit the campus a few times, at least once during classes if you can. The beauty of the campus and the friendliness of the students speak for themselves. My first visit set a high standard for all of the other schools I looked at and in the end it really helped me confirm that BU was right for me.
Amber from Fort Knox, KY
Make sure to look at the scholarships you might be eligible for and do not miss your opportunities to apply for them! Do your research.

Do volunteer projects or community-related events, something that matters to you. Bellarmine has organized volunteer days throughout the year and requires every registered student organization(RSO) to do service twice a year so volunteering is very important here.

Get involved! There are soooo many things to get into here from tons of clubs and theater to intramural sports and student government. Try out lots of things and see what you like. There's even a scholarship for getting involved at the end of each school year. Plan ahead!
Arielle from Saint Louis, MO
Know what you're getting yourself into- It's hard but if you're willing to take notes in every class and do the work and challenge yourself, you'll reap the rewards.
