The young lady that gave us the tour of the home was very knowledgeable on Ms. Cookman's life, home and artifacts. Very impressed with all of the original items in the home as well as all of the pictures.

Rode down the streets of BCU with the hopes of enticing my 14 year old daughter to consider the school as one of her college choices.. She actually got excited. I believe being so close to the beach was a plus as well.

The house where Mary McLeod Bethune lived is a lesson in history. The grounds are beautiful, the students helpful and I had a thoroughly engaging and informative tour. Call ahead.

Went to a jazz concert a few years ago, this auditorium is hardly ever used, and they don't operate ina professional manner when they use it. A government funded place that is never used. Not the college, the auditoriam
