An unexpected diamond in the rough! I was surprised that the small campus wasn't so small. Beautiful grounds in a small, clean, quaint town. It was historical, well maintained & Mayberry-like. I would love for my daughter to visit and consider on her list but...More

Just off interstate and well worth a visit. Plenty of spaces to park for those visiting and you can just stroll around the various building and see college life. Plenty of gift shops to look at. An ideal sunny Sunday afternoon visit.

(Taken from B.C. web site). It's a beautiful campus to walk around. The students...More

Pamela. Sorry, I don't know that chapel, so I have to refer you to the person above and their answer to contact the college. I personally used Chapel in the Woods in TN, and could not recommend it higher. It was perfect.
