Reviews for Hobe Sound Bible College
You need to know that HSBC is a school that has rules for women that are not Biblical. Check the handbook before going there. I did not know women had to wear long hair in a bun, no sandals, pantyhose and married women can not wear a wedding band. In addition, there is a campus person who makes sure no make-up is worn and that all of the rules are kept. The rules, however, apply to only women... no such rules for men. Also, you can't watch television if you live on campus; however, when I visited I noted a lot of computer and movie watching using dvds as well as people going to the movie theater (which is not allowed either).
Professors are not progressive instructors. After researching, I found the curriculum to be below average when it comes to methodology and only a few professors can even teach there due to the strict rules regarding outward appearance. For example, a qualified Christian lady could not teach math if she cut her hair or wore any make up or jewelry. I believe the entire college has only a few professors, maybe eight or nine. It is easier for the males because they do not have the appearance issues except for no wedding band. It depends on what one wants in the area of academics. The academics are textbook straight with little or no creativity and the belief system one has much match the college guidelines and rules.
There are music clubs and some Christian activities, but girls have to wear skirts and hose so it can be difficult in the hot Florida weather. Weekend activities include church, but when I visited I saw some students from the college in West Palm at the movies. Also, church officials who live off campus have televisions and I know of a person who went there to watch the Super Bowl. Hobe Sound is a small town, so there is not much to do. The beach is close by, but if you go there you can not wear beach clothes. Girls and Guys must wear full clothing; no shorts of any kind is allowed and sleeve must be to the elbow. I know of someone who was asked to leave due to the inability to wear their sleeves long enough and they were found in a bathing suit wrap at the beach, so this is important to note.
Hobe Sound Bible College is a wonderful place to receive a Biblically solid education. The teachers are well trained and all of them have Masters degrees, some even have Doctorate degrees. But beyond their formal schooling, the staff at HSBC has practical life experience that is an invaluable part of our training as students.
The classes are generally small, but each one of your professors knows you personally. You are definitely not just a number, you are a well-respected member of the student body.
There are many opportunities, almost every night, for social activities to be involved in. The Intramural sports program provides a fun way to gather as a student body on Friday nights. The campus provides security every night, and they do an excellent job.
