Absolutely Ridiculous!


The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 19 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

This is absolutely ridiculous! Who would ever want to go to a school like this? All I have to say is that Bob Jones sucks, and I would bet that Bob Dole thinks that Bob Jones sucks and is a disgrace to all people named Bob….or Jones. From Bob Jones University

Residence Hall Life

Residence Hall Life

  • A student must live in one of the University residence halls unless he is living with parents or
    other close relatives (approved by the Dean of Men’s or Dean of Women’s office), is 23 years old or
    older, is married and over the age of 20, or is a graduate student.
  • Freshmen may request a roommate. Other students are allowed one request for a friend to be in their
    prayer group, on their hall, or in their residence hall, but not in their room.
  • For the sake of accountability, students must "check out" when they leave the campus. Students
    gradually acquire more freedom in this area as they become upperclassmen.
  • Each night all students meet for prayer, either as a room or together with several other rooms.
  • Students are required to be in their own rooms and quiet at 11 pm. All lights must be out by midnight.
  • Students are required to keep their rooms clean and neat. Rooms are inspected daily.
  • Facilities and furnishings:
    • Laundry facilities are provided.
    • All rooms are furnished with twin-sized beds, dressers, desks, closets, cupboards, sink,
      telephone, and blinds.
    • Computer network and high-speed Internet access is available in each residence hall room.
  • An email account is provided for each student. Due to the flood of objectionable content coming
    through outside email services, students may use only this filtered campus email system.
  • All wireless access to the Internet is forbidden since all Internet use must go through the
    University’s filtered access.

What to Bring

  • List of what to bring pdf
  • Students may bring automobiles to campus. However, underclassmen (freshmen and sophomores) who are under
    21 years old may use their vehicles only to drive home and for extension.
  • Cell phones are permitted. Students will be instructed in cell phone etiquette.

What Not to Bring

  • Posters of movie and music stars and fashion models are not permitted. The subjects of personal photos
    should exhibit the modesty and appropriate physical contact we expect from our students.
  • Music must be compatible with the University’s music standards:
    • New Age, jazz, rock, and country music is not permitted.
    • Contemporary Christian music is not permitted (e.g., Michael W. Smith, Stephen Curtis Chapman,
      WOW Worship, and so forth).
  • Televisions and DVD/videocassette players are not permitted in the residence halls; computer DVD players
    may not be used to view movies.
  • You may not possess or play computer and video games rated T, M, or A or having elements of blood and
    gore, sensual or demonic themes, or featuring suggestive dress, bad language, or rock music.
  • Due to space considerations, appliances such as mini-refrigerators and microwaves are not permitted in
    residence hall rooms. A refrigerator for medical-related needs and microwaves are provided in each
    residence hall.
  • Residence hall students may not watch videos above a G rating when visiting homes in town and may not
    attend movie theaters.
  • All weapons must be turned in for storage. Trigger locks are required for pistols. Fireworks are not
    permitted on campus.

I think I’m going to write a email to query why BJ has this particular stance
