Teaching Valuable Lessons

Graduates tell us that it was their experiences of playing, speaking, singing, and performing that taught them valuable lessons that shaped them into who they are today. In essence it developed the whole person, going beyond the knowledge of a single field of study.

Continuing that experience of the arts - a well-known tradition at BJU for over 90 years - is important for today’s students.

We Depend On You

Patron of the Arts is a new giving program that underwrites these essential fine arts and performing arts programs to provide our students with the cultural experiences that you and I have come to appreciate. Like many private colleges, BJU depends on gifts to make up the difference between program expenses and tuition. By giving, Patrons receive exclusive member benefits for their families while helping to support this essential pillar in the BJU educational experience.

“My BJU experience shaped me and molded me into the person that I am today. What I received here and the fine arts opportunities I had as a student developed me so that I was thoroughly prepared artistically and academically for where I am today. I can say that I would not be who I am today if I had not come here.”
– Daniel Overly
