    Good / Bad ? Youngest granddaughter is being courted by them to attend next year after HS graduation. With a offer of a rather good scholarship. Other than knowing it is in Louisville and a private university I know nothing else. Is it in a safe area of Louisville ? She visit last weekend and seems to like the place so far.

    A friend of mine went there for her undergraduate degree. She seemed to like it. I don't know why young women have such an attraction to big cities, but they do. I think Bellarmine would be a much safer campus for a young lady than UofL would be.

    Really nice school, beautiful campus, but extremely expensive. Has a real good reputation in the accounting world locally.

    Great school. No problems on campus. Good area (for Louisville). As others have stated...quite expensive.

    MRS degree.

    Not heard of any safety issues at Bellarmine. Never know tho anymore. Known more for its accounting program. Nice little par 3 golf course.

    I think they closed the golf course a few years ago. They've built it up a lot recently.

    It's a Catholic university, so it leans conservative. She may come out a Trump or Cruz supporter. ;-)

    But they have a great basketball program. Probably the best in the city.

    2nd most expensive college in the state behind Centre. Area is ok. 15 minutes from anything in Louisville.

    They are very aggressive with most good students. Their published tuition is high, but no one pays that. Their first offer to my son was a 50% scholarship. I'm sure it's a good school, the campus appears nice. It really depends what she wants to study that will determine if its right for her.

    While the campus is pretty, it's near to Our Lady of Peace - currently taking new heroin addicts for patients.

    Other than that, it's expensive, as mentioned. One of the clerks in my office is married to the guy who drives their basketball team around the country, and he seems to like the folks.
