    May bee there-a wontin' 2 bee kinda like most state government controlled colleges/universities?

    Seriously, there's always a financial advantage for ANY college/university to "play to the locals."

    In theory, the closer one is located to campus, the greater the possibility exists that this person may enroll in said school. Moreover, should that person live w/in commuting distance, it's possible that said school wouldn't need to house this person in their dormitories and quite possibly reduce that student's usage of its cafeteria.

    Now, I'm not a BJU student. I was at its campus some 28 years ago for a Bible conference, and when I was a HS/JH instructor at a Christian school about 22 years ago, I did use some of BJU Press's textbooks.

    I've got nothing against BJU (never had). I actually support some of the moves that the current BJU administration has made to "bring in into the 21st century."

    Not all change is per se bad. I've changed a lot since I received Christ as Savior in April, 1966. FWIW, you need to re-evaluate each "change" on its own merits, and then go from there.

    Jest my $0.02 USD worth. :thumbs: :tonofbricks:
