    Greek Life

    It's Spanish..not Greek! ;) There's no Greek life.

    Great for these types of students

    This is great for those who desire to serve the Lord and learn Spanish, and possibly become a missionary!

    Bang for the buck

    The Institute is around $6,000 per semester and the language school is around $4,000 per semester, so if you know much about college tuition, this is REALLY good!!

    Food and Dining

    Meal plan per semester is $1,500 which is just slightly under average (according to an average college meal plan in a google search!)

    Dorm Life

    There are several different options for students. The married students will either live in an apartment or in an RV. Married students with children are able to bring their children to campus to live with them! The unmarried students can choose to live in a single or shared dorm. The unmarried students actually will have a better learning environment because they are in a dorm speaking Spanish with all of the others.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics for the Institute are entirely in Spanish while the language school is focusing on learning Spanish. The students are unable to attain jobs off-campus because of the academic schedule.

    Tips for prospective students

    I am still unsure of an actual college/university that I would like to attend, so if you're like me (and you greatly desire to learn Spanish!!) this would be a great start in a Spanish education and will still give you time to pray and know what the Lord's will is for your life...or at least know what His will is for the next year or two!! The dress codes are slightly strict for some (dresses/skirts/shorts must be below the knee, dress attire for classes and services, etc.) so that is something that you should think about before you pack your bags. It's not for the rest of your life, just a few years, so make sure the dress codes don't push you away from the school.

    In three sentences

    Although I have not attended or even visited RGBI, it seems to be a wonderful place for one who is interested in learning Spanish or understanding the Bible in Spanish. RGBI has a language school (Missionary Language School) as a part of it, which teaches the students Spanish. The language school and the institute are meant to bring glory and honor to God.
