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
