    The rules may be strict at time, but when you do the right thing it is completely invisible. There are ALWAYS things to do on campus, the Anchor is a band that plays every Thursday at 8 and we sing and hang out. The gym has many classes like Zumba, Core Crunch, Latin Cardio; all for free! Downtown West Palm Beach is only 1 minute and 45 seconds away, so being bored rarely happens to the best of us.

    The campus is beautiful! There are so many things to be involved in! When I visited, I really enjoyed sitting in on a Music History class! The professors seem so willing to do everything they can to make sure the students understand and learn to their highest potential.

    I love the Christian atmosphere of PBA. Of course, not everyone contributes to that atmosphere, but a large portion of the student population really are actively involved in church and campus ministries. The school offers mission trips, hall Bible studies, weekly student-led nights of worship, etc. There is a moderate amount of school spirit (people get into Sailfish Cup -- the annual dorm competition -- but hardly anyone goes to sports games), which suits me fine, but may disappoint others. There are downsides to any school, and I could possibly get better academics (for less money) at UF or another public university. However, I think PBA offers more good than bad, especially if your faith is important to you.
