Focus on Christ
Our greatest desire is that our students, having received new life in Christ, would be able to reflect God’s character.
Through relevant and challenging chapel services, faculty and staff who model Christlikeness and mentor students, and an entire curriculum infused with biblical truth, we nurture our students’ spiritual growth and help them develop a comprehensively biblical worldview.
Love for One Another
Christ commanded us to love one another and said that by this love the world would know that we are His disciples. At BJU, we strive to live out our faith by loving one another.
Whether it’s through our caring discipleship model, Scripturally based mentoring, or our daily interactions—BJU is a caring place where you will be loved.
Housing & Dining
You’ve probably heard a funny story that started with “I had this roommate in college.” Now it’s your turn to have roommates and to be a roommate. Come ready to learn as you grow in faith and as you fellowship with other believers.
Whether it’s a quick bite on the go, a casual sit-down meal with your friends, or a time of mentoring with a faculty member, BJU Dining Services makes it easy for you to refuel and connect.
At BJU, you don’t have to worry about being just another face in the crowd. Soon after you arrive at BJU, you’ll join one of 40 societies on campus, where you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get involved.
Societies are student-run organizations designed for fun-filled activities, godly relationships, service opportunities and leadership development.
Whether you’re interested in business, education, ministry or the arts—there’s no shortage of extracurricular opportunities at BJU. In fact, BJU offers more than 25 student organizations across a wide range of fields. These organizations are a great way to plug in, make new friends, and together develop your skills as you pursue a common goal.
We are Bruins, and we play in the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). We have plenty of intramural sports too.
Our goals for athletics are to help you develop Christlike character in a competitive environment, to provide a platform for ministry and to enrich your college experience, whether you’re a competitor or a fan.
