Bellevue University has exceeded my expectations. The academic advisors and counselors are very accessible, patient, knowledgeable, and helpful! I give Bellevue a 10!
Tips for prospective students
My first tip is to make sure you talk to your financial aid counselor.
My second tip is to talk to your academic advisor.
My third tip is if you have any other problems go to ONE STOP!
Academic Rigor
I have completed three classes and I believe that the program is suitable for parents and people who work full time. The materials were challenging, interesting and kept my attention.
Dorm Life
I live off campus but have heard that the dorms are nice for the price.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria is conveniently located and has pretty good food. The atmosphere is nice with a beautiful fountain and is also a good place to hang out between classes.
What to do for fun
No matter what your age, if you are a student at Bellevue, you can join any of the sports! There are always special events going on and others students to chat with.
Great for these types of students
Bellevue is great for non-traditional students like me; 49 years old, 5 children, changing careers!
Campus Safety
The parking is close to classrooms and well lit at night. Play it safe though and always walk out with a buddy after dark.

I feel Bellevue University respects students of all ages. As an older student, they have treated me with the respect and dignity I needed to feel comfortable going back to college after a twenty year gap in attendance. Their accelerated Bachelors program is allowing me to gain the degree I have always wanted and nowadays 'need' in order to qualify for a job making me and my 20 years of experience a great package for my next employer!
Tips for prospective students
Never give up, it is obvious by my example that you are 'never' too old to go back to school and better yourself!
Academic Rigor
The challenges in our homework activities are designed to make us more marketable in the workplace, therefore an asset to whichever position we choose.
Dorm Life
I live off campus and don't know if there are any available. I do know that the Bellevue area has many apartment possibilities.
Food and Dining
The food so far is good.
What to do for fun
Bellevue University provides athletic opportunities, after school movies, bowling including food before these events. This generosity creates a warm and friendly college environment, much like a smaller town would provide, but in a big city!
Bang for the buck
The staff at the college in whatever department I have had to work with are very accomodating. They make sure you understand the answers to the questions you have asked.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
The parking is wonderful and close to every building you would need to go to.
Great for these types of students
This college is great for adults going back to school to 'finally' receive their Bachelor's or I have also heard their Master's degree, that will be my next challenge after accomplishing my Bachelor's in 2013!
Clubs and Activities
I have yet had time to join a club but have one in mind when I have settled into a routine. I have participated in the movie night and plan to do so in the future.
Campus Safety
As a woman, I feel very comfortable being on campus after dark. I have 'never' felt uncomfortable or nervous. I feel this campus is safe and secure!

Bellevue is an excellent school for learning. The online classrooms is easy to follow and easily accessible. Needs a little work on their financial aid system.
Tips for prospective students
Monitor your financial aid to ensure that you have enough to cover all your classes.
Academic Rigor
Some classes are easier than others but the challenge is there and requires organization skills and great time management skills.
Bang for the buck
I believe that Bellevue is well worth the money spent and or borrowed. I am finishing up my last classes and I honestly say that I have feel I have learned a great deal. The teaching method is awesome and makes it easier for the working adult to obtain success in completing the class but yet presents the challenge that many may be looking for.

Bellevue is time friendly offering both on-line and in-class courses. Their on-line class are easy to follow and offer assistance to help use their resource. Bellevue offers accelerated and traditional class settings.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure that you start on your financial aid right away and not to wait until the last minute as the fall school session can get pretty busy. Also use your academic advisor and know your program of study so that you do not take classes that will not apply towards your degree.

Show up to class and be prepared. Ask questions if you do not understand the information that is being given. Do your work and also try to do your best. If needed get yourself a tutor to help keep motivate, focused and interested in learning.

It is a small campus with a small town atmosphere.
Everyone knows everyone at this campus.
It is very racially and ethnically diverse.
Tips for prospective students
Make school your main focus the first two years.
Go to the sporting events; it's a lot of fun and we appreciate the support.
Apply for as many scholarships as you can.
Academic Rigor
Classes are fairly easy as long as you do what you're supposed to do, pay attention, and stay caught up.
Dorm Life
There are no dorms but the off-campus life is really fun. Everyone always goes over to each other's apartments and hangs out.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria is a bit pricey but the food is really good.
What to do for fun
There are restaurants, movie theaters, malls, etc. Every other Tuesday Bellevue University has free bowling night at the bowling alley accross the street from the school. I play volleyball so this opinion might be a bit bias but I think going to the sporting events is really fun.
Bang for the buck
Bellevue is a great school to go to if you are looking for a small campus life. The teacher to student ratio is about 20-30 students to 1 teacher, so there is a lot of opportunity for one on one help. Bellevue is fairly inexpensive also.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
