What I like about Bellarmine University are all the campus involvement opportunities it has to offer. I was able to take full advantage of them and contribute to various Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) that I am passionate about. In the Fall 2021 semester, I performed a Handel's Messiah concert with Bellarmine's Oratorio Society Ensemble. In the Spring 2022 semester, I performed in Jennifer Haly's Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom play through Bellarmine's Theatre program. Next semester, I will be an ACCESS BU Peer Mentor and will be the Service Chair for its National Residence Hall Honorary program. Because of the wide variety of involvements Bellarmine offers, I encourage new students to contribute as much as possible to RSOs they adore while not out too much on their plate.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

What I did not like is the limitation of tutoring for certain courses. Although Bellarmine University has a Tutoring Center for current students to meet with a student tutor in reviewing coursework on selected courses they take, it only applies to more general courses (like Environmental Science, Mathematical Liberal Arts, and Spanish). Therefore, please contact your professors and/or peers in classes that do not have student tutors for them in understanding certain content.

I really like the professors in the biology department. They are super helpful and amazing at teaching the material!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you are from far away, the weekends are pretty boring because a lot of people are from close to the school. There is not a ton to do on the weekend.

I have enjoyed the close-knit community and small class sizes. However, there are limited activities on campus and dorms are sub-par. Overall, I have liked my experience at Bellarmine.

Bellarmine has been a great experience for me so far. My classes are engaging, and my professors are accessible, kind, and passionate. Because Bellarmine is such a small school, it's easy to make connections with professors, staff, and other students. The professors will stop to talk to you outside of class, and staff members often know you by name and are so kind. I always see people I know as I'm walking through campus. Bellarmine is a very inclusive and supportive community. There are opportunities on and off campus for people of all backgrounds and interests, and someone is always willing to help you out or give you advice. I really feel connected to my community here, and I have never had any second thoughts about choosing Bellarmine.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Bellarmine is a small school, so if you're hoping to keep your head down and not be engaged, this probably isn't the place for you. Professors expect participation in class, which is good if you've come prepared but can be intimidating if you don't feel comfortable speaking out. As a shy person, it was hard for me to get used to this, but I have come to appreciate it. Also, though there are lots of fun activities on campus, Bellarmine isn't a party school if you're looking for that kind of thing (at least, I haven't found it to be so). There isn't really strong Greek life as far as I know. There also may not be as many resources and opportunities available as there would be at a larger school.
