Bethune-Cookman University

Daytona Beach, Florida

The heart of the university is situated on Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard, representing the historical core of the institution, where the seven historic buildings comprised the historical main campus. Surrounding those buildings are evidences of the progress made in the development of the boundaries which now extend beyond International Speedway Boulevard to the South; George W. Engram Boulevard to the North; Lincoln Street to the West; and Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard to the East. The university remains connected to Midway, the historic African-American community.

The student population is representative of a microcosm of cultures, traditions, and legacies and resembles a Model United Nations, much like the organization formed on this campus. It’s a multi-cultural heaven.

With more than 3000 students from most U.S. States, the Caribbean Islands, and 35 countries, the impact of this private United Methodist Church-related school is influencing the current enrollment. The university is the 6th largest of the 39-member UNCF colleges. Female students constitute 60% of the total enrollment while male students comprise 40%. In 2004, 64% of Bethune-Cookman University students were Florida natives and 10% of students were from Volusia County, 32% of all students were from the United States (aside from Florida) and its territories, and 4% were international students. The women’s tennis team ranked second place for MEAC.

The great Bethune-Cookman University has risen from the ashes like the mighty Phoenix to become the great citadel of learning in the heart of Central Florida. With a total full-time teaching faculty of approximately 160, 55% of whom hold the doctorate degree, the vision of the founder remains in full view over one-hundred years later. The institution prevails in order that others might improve their heads, hearts, and hands.
