Am learning a lot
My major is Elementary Education and thus far i have been enjoying every little minute of it. I have learn a lot about my major and i can not wait to return to Bethune Cookman to learn even more. Cookman has so many Majors that stand out but to me the Education Department is where to be!
Am enjoying being here
Going to Bethune Cookman has given me the opportunity to experience things that I would not have experienced at home. The college life at Cookman is laid back and simple. Mostly every one is friendly and there are people from all over the united states to meet and learn about their home town. I have made many friends and tons of associates. I wouldn't trade going to college for any thing.
Bang for the buck
It wouldn't hurt to lower the cost of education just a little bit. Every school has its flaws but I can honestly say that the cost to attend Cookman doesn't make up for its worn out dorms, its nasty same day food, and its door to door parking lots. So many people have the potential to go to Bethune Cookman but they don't have the money for it. That's why I'm on Cappex. I need to get some help for paying my tuition. If i don't receive any help for the up coming school year, i will be stuck at home at a community college, which there is nothing wrong with that but i will truly be hurt to not return to Cookman. At Cookman, i feel like you are only paying for your education and nothing else. The education that you receive is worth $20,000 (give or take) but every thing else.......no comment!
Tips for prospective students
SAVE SOME MONEY!!!!!!! Be your self! Be confident! Keep your head up! And do not be a follower!!!!
Great for these types of students
If you are some one who love to talk and be around people then Cookman is the place for you! I must say that Bethune has a great social life that i myself didn't think i would really take part in. I am usually quiet and keep to my self around people i don't know but when i got to Cookman, all of that changed. You will be able to find your true self when you go off to college and you will be surprised at the type of person you really are.

Am learning a lot
Bethune Cookman is a great institution. i have learned a lot in my previous year there. The university is filled with professors and advisor who want to see you succeed. There are many resources available for students if they need help with anything rather it academic or financial. The campus size isn't too big so finding the help isn't a huge issue, everything that you need seems like a few feet away.
Am enjoying being here
I am really enjoying my experience there. The campus life is awesome. The students interact well with each other and there is always something going on if you ever get bored or need something to do. There are also lots of Greek organizations that you can join to keep you occupied. the one thing that I can say is great about the campus is that it is right down the street from the beach which is something that lots of student enjoy a lot. If you enjoy learning and having fun at the same time Bethune Cookman University is the school for you.
Bang for the buck
Bethune Cookman University is a little bit expensive being that it is a private institution. This is what causes a lot of student to change their minds about attending, but there are many scholarships and grants available to help you pay for school here at Bethune Cookman. You just have to apply for them. Yeah I admit when I saw the price of tuition I almost fainted too but advisers at Bethune helped me find solutions to help me pay for the expenses of college and after I got help I realized that it wasn't too bad.
Tips for prospective students
Bethune Cookman University is a school that can be sort of easy to get distracted from your school work especially if you are a freshman. So the best thing you can do is come in and focus on your books. Its alright to have fun just make sure that you are get your school work done first because it is hard to bounce back once you fall off in your books.
Great for these types of students

Am learning a lot
I am truly learning a lot a Bethune Cookman University. Although it only my first year I have truly enjoyed the history about the school itself. In addition the teachers are truly there for you, they want you to succeed, with that kind of support it is impossible to fail. For every course there are tutors for those who struggle with a subject. There truly is no reason to fail if the focus is there. I am a Nursing major and am ready to get started with the state of the art nursing program they have.
Am enjoying being here
From the time of my campus visit, until I moved in the dorm everyone has truly made me feel at home. Everyone is so friendly and are very helpful too. I had no problem finding my way around and everything I desire is within walking distance. I hope you like exercise, there is a lot a of walking and you get to see more of the beautiful campus. I never realized the history lesson the campus offers, I have learned things about Black History that I never received when I was in school.
Bang for the buck
No one wants to pay for college, but compared to what some of my friends are paying for college, I am truly getting my monies worth. Besides you can't put a price on education. I have looked at other colleges, but have always been accustomed to a small school settings, I'm not certain that I'd get the level of education that I'm receiving at another university no matter the price.
Tips for prospective students
For those who are looking to attend Bethune Cookman University I have to say if you have your agenda for life made you'll be ok. There is lots to do here and there is plenty of time for parties and extra curriculars once the school work is done. Just remain focused, freshmen get distracted easily.
Great for these types of students
Bethune is great for all types of students. Being a HBCU I assumed there would only be African American students here. I have met canadians, caucasians, british and people from all walks of life while at Bethune. The faculty and student body is very diverse. I'm sure that all students would love it.

Soon as you step on campus and see the buildings you'll fall in love. The grass is well taken care of, very green and healthy looking. Smiling faces and friend people just waiting to greet each other.
Tips for prospective students
Apply yourself in class from the very first day, the professors are very challenging and grade accordingly.
Academic Rigor
Academics are pretty good. I find each course to be well organized and challenging.
Dorm Life
A cleaning company comes everyday to clean the halls and bathrooms. Very well kept dorms.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria severs a very balanced diet. Not a lot of greasy food but instead a great deal of rice and other healthy food daily.
What to do for fun
Most students go to the beach that is nearby or play basketball that's walking distance from the campus. Sitting outside enjoying the scenery is nice also.
Bang for the buck
Our band is phenomenal, whenever they're practicing it's always a big crowd of people just watching as if it was an actual performance.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
It's a big field right beside a male dorm that many activites take place on. Track and field practice, cheerleading practice and try outs, band practice, flag football, rugby, and racing.
Great for these types of students
Energetic and active students will enjoy the campus life.
Clubs and Activities
There seems to be all sorts of clubs and activities always going on all year round. Whatever you're interested in I'm sure there's a club that comes close to your interest.

The greeks swarm the campus daily and put on shows weekly in the cafeteria during lunch hours.

There's always security patrolling the campus for our safety. Twenty hours of the day and night.
