I went to this school because the online application was free and I felt like I needed to be here and then this place ended up being the dream school I never knew I had,

Aboluwade - 10/15/2020

I love it so much and I have been accepted but the cost is just to much for my family to pay.. but it is my dream school so I am working hard and applying to has much scholarship as I can to help my parents out. Overall this is the university I want to go to and I can’t wait to call DBU my home

daniel - 10/13/2020

For me, before I was even a student at the college, my opinion at Dallas Baptist University came to me from a youtube video by FloTrack on the college's cross country team and how they were going to NCAA nationals that year. In that video, the head coach Jacob Phillips was so enthusiastic and caring for each and every runner of his. I knew from that video that every teacher and coach on that campus would show the same effort, and I was right. Now being a student, I can say that Dallas Baptist University is: christ-centered, the teachers show great importance in the students well being, and the student body itself is full of life and very kind.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    Kowing what I know now about college life I would tell myself not to worry about making friends and meeting new people. I met hundereds of incredibly nice, caring people the first week I was on campus. I would tell myself not to worry about the decisions that seemed life changing at the time like meal plans, classes, and even how I would decorate the dorm. Those things are all too small to worry about now that I have been there and lived it. However, more importantly than that, I would have told my senior self to slow down and enjoy every second of the time with my friends and family. I chose a college six hours away from home and I have loved every minute of it! I just know that I could have spent more time with a few friends that I have not seen in awhile now. I would have placed more importance on family time my senior year. I did not think I would miss them, but eventually I did miss them. I would tell my senior self to worry less and enjoy the people and the relationships that I have been blessed with.

    Someone that holds conservative values would enjoy the atmosphere at DBU. Someone who wants to get to know lots of people on campus and be involved would enjoy our campus life. Some students at DBU are very musically talented & some are athletic, both are highly respected on campus. Just because it says "Baptist" in the name of the school does not mean that we do not accept non- believers. In fact, our faculty and students are evangelical for the most and enjoy leading new believers to Christ. Someone who enjoys living in a larger city should attend DBU!
