Bethune-Cookman University was founded in 1904. It offers an incredible education primarily for minority students. However, the student population is diverse with students from all 50 states and 20 countries. Bethune-Cookman takes its motto seriously which is "Enter to Learn - Depart to Serve" This is a distinction that shapes Bethune graduates for life!

The young lady that gave us the tour of the home was very knowledgeable on Ms. Cookman's life, home and artifacts. Very impressed with all of the original items in the home as well as all of the pictures.

Rode down the streets of BCU with the hopes of enticing my 14 year old daughter to consider the school as one of her college choices.. She actually got excited. I believe being so close to the beach was a plus as well.
