What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently attending temple but I plan on transferring to Baylor for their nursing program because they have one of the top ranked nursing programs. Overall I am a Baylor fan for sports and I hear a lot from my friends, who go to Baylor, about the school which they really love it there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Since arriving at Baylor University in the fall of 2019, I have gotten a crash course on college life. Baylor is the perfect size at about 17,000 students; we are big enough to be in the Big Twelve for football and number 1 in the nation for several other sports, have a large amount of Greek life on campus, and rarely run into the same person twice, but we are also small enough to have freshman classes with no more than 90 students (I even had a class of just six), professors who know you by name, and a Community Leader (RA) who guides freshmen through that first rough year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor is religiously affiliated, as it is the biggest Baptist university in the United States. It is not required that an individual be religious to attend Baylor, therefore it creates a friendly, diverse, and exciting environment. There are plenty of extracurricular groups to get involved in, both for pleasure and for resumes. The campus is beautiful, with both historical monuments and astonishing buildings. The on campus food is marvelous when comparing to other schools, and the sports teams are always competitive. Not to mention, the academics are extremely prestigious and professors/class sizes are ideal. It is a great overall university to consider.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor University is extremely committed to providing an excellent academic experience for all of its students. The multi-faceted emphasis on an interdisciplinary education can be uniquely found at Baylor. It's a university that turns out good people, and not just students. I couldn't imagine a better undergraduate experience than at this university.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you want first rate faculty, go someplace else. If you want intellectually driven faculty go someplace else. If you want something more than black letter, if you want intellectual challenges to the common view, go someplace else. Leadership is focused on fund raising and does not pay attention to improving the student experience. Writing courses are terrible, school hires whatever adjunct they can get for those

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I would not go to school anywhere else! The Baylor University campus is gorgeous, most of my classes are small and the professors are accessible. There is a feeling of community here, I know I am getting a quality education, and that is what is most important to me.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, I would say that Baylor is a university that any student would be blessed to have the opportunity to attend. Not only are the academics stellar, but everyone is so friendly! The financial aid office and the counselors are so helpful. Had it not been for them, I may not have been able to receive the funding needed to attend Baylor. Financial aid was somewhat confusing for me but the staff at Baylor made sure that the process went smoothly! The campus is beautiful. I've toured dozens of college campuses, but Baylor by far has the most beautiful campus. It's one of the oldest universities west of the Mississippi, so most of the buildings are brick, but everything is so well preserved! There are tons of off-campus housing options for a very affordable price! I feel pretty safe on campus and there are always plenty of patrol cars driving around. Football is a way of life at Baylor. If you're a big football fan, this school is for you! I would say that the best part about Baylor is the people. As I said, everyone is super nice and helpful. The people at Baylor genuinely care about you and your success! Baylor is in Waco, and honestly, Waco isn't the most beautiful place I've ever been to, but it has its nice parts and its bad parts. Magnolia is really cool and one of my favorite places in Waco. But anything outside of the "Baylor Bubble" I would stay out of. It's about halfway between Austin and Dallas, so getting to either of those two cities is fairly easy!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor Has always been my dream school. I used to visit every year with my mom to look at the campus. Now it is number one the list of schools that I want to attend. Setting aside my own personal feeling, Baylor is a very Christian based school with thousands of opportunities an I would recommend it to just about everyone planning for college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are Christian and you want to go to a University that incorporates the Christian faith in almost every class this a good university for you. The dorms are nice, and a lot of money goes into the football team. The honors programs are the best here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an online student so anything that is on campus doesn't apply to me, but from what I hear it is a great place to be. I love the football culture at Baylor and I'm always seeing gamedays tweets. Even though I'm a distance learner, I feel connected to the school.
