Kiley came to BVU inspired to become a writer. She wanted a career in journalism. An internship in New York City. She went to work on day one with the support and connections she got from her professors. From writing for her local paper and the Alternative Pressin Cleveland, to an internship at xojane magazine in Manhattan, Kiley took huge steps towards her dream. When Time reprinted one of her articles, her voice was heard ‘round the world.

"At BVU I met people who took me seriously and believed in me, and I was given an internship right away. All my success started with my dream and professors who told me to go for it."

The TruePromise Difference

What is TruePromise? It means we'll do everything in our power to make sure you have a solid internship (or two), a degree in four years, and placement in a job or graduate school within six months of graduation.

Strong Outcomes

TruePromise isn't a gimmick. It's our word for the winning formula BVU has offered up for years. Our graduates' appeal on the job market has transcended the ups and downs of the economy, with consistent, desirable employment or grad school placement across all majors.

You'll come out of BVU with real, hands-on work experience, whether it's student teaching that reflects the latest techniques or research with the Mayo Clinic.

Present your skills with confidence, too—our professional development courses make sure you're strong, from cover letter to offer letter.

Going Above and Beyond

Life doesn't move in a straight line. Thinking about switching majors? Our professors and alumni are ready to listen, give advice, or direct you towards useful job experience before you commit. Does your coursework take you past the four-year TruePromise guarantee? We'll pay for an extra semester of tuition.

At BVU, we stand behind your hard work and determination. We care about your success. And we can’t wait to see the mark you'll make on the world.
