What is community? It's hanging in there together, and wanting to hang out, even after class is over. Friends who will listen, understand what's on your mind, and appreciate your strengths. Conversations with a faculty member, or even the President, who encourages you to go to the next level, go deeper about life, or learn to lead. This is what community is all about.
Baptist College of Health Sciences is a community that respects the rights of others, and seeks to contribute to the mission and goals we share. In order to ensure that a safe and secure environment exists that supports intellectual, spiritual, and personal development, BCHS has policies and procedures in place that all members of the community agree to follow. It is an expectation that our students adhere to high standards of behavior, and observe the college's policies and guidelines while at BCHS.
The Baptist College Fitness Center, located just off the Atrium, is available daily from 6:00 am to 10:30 pm for students, faculty, staff, and their guests age 18 and over to use for their personal fitness and wellness routines.
