Bob Jones University (BJU) is a private, for-profit, non-denominational Protestant university in Greenville, South Carolina.
The university was founded in 1927 by evangelist Bob Jones, Sr. (1883–1968). The current president, Stephen Jones, is the great-grandson of the founder and the fourth consecutive member of the Jones family to serve as president.
Since 2005 BJU has been accredited by the Transnational Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, a national accrediting organization recognized by the Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. The university enrolls approximately 3,800 students representing every state and fifty foreign countries, employs a staff of 1,450, and conducts precollege education from pre-kindergarten through high school. In 2008, the university estimated the number of its graduates at 35,000.
BJU's athletic teams compete in Division I of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) and are collectively known as the Bruins.

Famous quotes containing the words university, bob and/or jones:
“I had a classmate who fitted for college by the lamps of a lighthouse, which was more light, we think, than the University afforded.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“It was because of me. Rumors reached Inman that I had made a deal with Bob Dole whereby Dole would fill a paper sack full of doggie poo, set it on fire, put it on Inmans porch, ring the doorbell, and then we would hide in the bushes and giggle when Inman came to stamp out the fire. I am not proud of this. But this is what we do in journalism.”
—Roger Simon, U.S. syndicated columnist. Quoted in Newsweek, p. 15 (January 31, 1990)
“We are told that every American boy has the chance of being president. I tell you that these little boys in the iron cages would sell their chance any day for good square meals and a chance to play.”
—Mother Jones (18301930)
