What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have a mixed salad of emotions for my opinion of Baylor. Let us start with academics. From an academic standpoint, Baylor is superb, especially if you are a pre-med or business student. The small class sizes, face to face professor communication, and abundance of major-oriented organizations and volunteer activities provide a splendid environment for any student to flourish. However, from a student body standpoint, Baylor is not the greatest. The school is by no means diverse, with a majority of the students being white. There is little intermingling of races, and most people hang out with their same culture. On top of that, many of the students cling to the stereotypical "frat or sorority" stereotypes. Coming from the incredibly diverse city of Austin, most of the student body is not my cup of tee. On a side note: due to the high poverty rate in the city of Waco, their are an exponential number of volunteering opportunities that Baylor offers to help out the community, a definite plus if your goal in life is helping others. So, to conclude, in my opinion it is only worth going to Baylor if you are a pre-med or business student due to the insane tuition and sub-par student body.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

One of the things I love about Baylor University is it's Christian community. There are tons of activities where you will have friends who share the same belief as you, so you know where to turn to when you need advice. In general, Baylor is a great university and I would recommend anyone to come and attend.

Baylor is such a great school! I recommend everyone to go there or at least consider! Everyone is so friendly and the professors really make you feel like you can be successful. The campus is beautiful and not too big. All the students that attend really want to be successful and get a good education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like it for the most part. When looking at colleges, Baylor wasn't my first choice, and first semester I had a lot of trouble finding my place. However, it's a nice school, still a great atmosphere despite the news recently. Although sometimes if you're a person on heavy scholarship, it shows because so many people here have a lot of money.

Great place to be. The diversity of people you meet from all walks of life is amazing. Also the campus is very aesthetically pleasing so that's nice to see after a killer lectur. The on campus food could be improved for sure. However this should not stop anyone from attending this great university. Sic em!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor University is an awesome school that I feel helps foster an environment that makes it easy to learn as much as possible. The student to faculty ratio is small enough that I feel as though I have the opportunity to build relationships with my professors. The campus is beautiful especially in spring time. The academic buildings are large and up-to-date on modern technology. I could not have picked a better university to further my education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I held his gaze for what seemed like minutes; I held it combatively and wistfully all at once, willing him to come closer. He scurried away. Baylor squirrels are not like other squirrels that I have been acquainted with during my time on earth. Baylor squirrels are plump and orange, thick with fur and just barely too bold. These traits make relating the Baylor student population to a Baylor squirrel quite effortless. The Baylor student population is lively and colorful, vibrant and rich with ideas and dreams. We seek all the nuts of wisdom and experience the world has to offer; we work day and night to gather all the tools necessary to have prosperous minds, bodies, relationships and careers. Unlike squirrels originating in other places, Baylor squirrels gather through intense heat and perilous weather- just like their fellow students. WHOOSH! I jumped back in initial surprise, a Baylor squirrel had just shot through a nearby bush at me. 'They are so bold,' I thought to myself. In the same way, Baylor students are bold. We protest each other, we protest our own administration- unafraid to hold one of our own accountable. If we see wrong, we speak up. We are not intimidated by position, nor by possible consequences. Many characterize Baylor University by the circumstances surrounding the culture of a few. Their allegations, experiences and actions are national news. As a family, we protect our own. With this in mind, when a family member does something wrong- we do not cover it up egregiously. We take responsibility and we rebuild- stronger. The true culture of Baylor University is rare. It is a place I take honor in being a part of.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor University offers a great inclusive community for everyone, and explores both the world around us and the past, while still staying attached to the Christians values of the campus. This campus provides many opportunities for the students to get involved with the surrounding community through volunteer work and more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor is such a great school considering the culture and the people that go to the school. It’s like everyone has their own little niche in the school. Everyone is smart but everyone has a specific area where they specialize. I am the political/ social science junkie and I would go to the gym and be talking to someone who’s talent is dancing, then later on go get dinner or something and be eating with the son of a prominent oil tycoon. Great environment to network and great academics with guidance to beefed up your experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Baylor is a wonderful place for growth as a person. Especially by myself being of African American descent and the majority of Baylor's students being Caucasian, I have learned so much from simple day to day interactions with the different cultures. By being exposed to the various ethnicities and cultures that Baylor encompasses, open-mindedness is born. Looking back on my first year at Baylor, I don't regret one single thing, good or bad. Why? Because even through rough times and difficult situations, there is always something positive to learn from it and by gaining such knowledge, you would be less prone to making the same mistake(s) as you did before, further preparing you for future encounters and opportunities.
