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

My college experience has stretched me immensely. I am starting to become more of the person I was created to be. I am better understanding who I am and what I want for my life. College has put me in an uncomfortable position that has forced me to figure things out without having my parents. It's given me confidence in the fact that my parents have raised me to be a bold, confident, and beautiful young woman. My college experience has also given me a hunger to help and love others better and more. If it weren't for college, I would not have been able to be stretched. College has shown me who I want to be and with the independence that comes with college given me a chance to achieve that.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Students who are looking for a party school shouldn't attend DBU. DBU is also very pricey and at times it seems that the administration only care about the money. Students that don't have the financial resources may struggle paying for school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The atmosphere of dedication and servitude is a know fact among all students attending Dallas Baptist University. The outstanding instructors instill a since of integrity, ethics, leadership and teamwork that students carry throughout campus life and into their workplace after graduation. These characteristics are indoctrinated by using communication and recognition. This encourages individual excellence and continuous improvement in all facets of life.

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

My college experience has given me the values, principles and knowlede for living my everday life. After attending college, my work search began. The confidence in my ability to apply the academic knowledge I gained during my college experience allowed me to excel in my career. The benefit of my college experience encouraged the continuation of my education. This continuation as well as this scholarship will allow me to gain the knowledge needed to help others in my field of work. Attending Dallas Baptist University instilled a measure of commitment in me that extends to others as I have the ability to assist others on a daily basis.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about Dallas Baptist University is the high cost of tuition. The cost of tuition for private institutes is often more expensive than public universities. Dallas Baptist University is not an exception to this rule. As the cost of living rises and the economic turndown has an effect on students, the cost of tuition and books has risen to an unexpected high. Often the financial aid and student loan sources are not enough to cover all expenses associated with attending college. Financially unfortunate students are forced to find part time jobs and spend hours a day writing scholarships.

I believe that the other schools I considered were more Liberal whereas Dallas Baptist is firmly Christian based, and that is what I sought in a college.

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

My college experience has not yet begun. I move Dallas Baptist University in less than a month, and I'm super excited. I truly believe that I chose the best college for me and that I will thoroughly enjoy my college experience.

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

I've learned within my college experience that it's not all about me and the glory that is brought to me by helping others. I've learned that the greatest gift of life is giving. I look forward to accomplishing what I must to achieve my goals and I believe this is what makes me a great college student. Hard times have come and gone. I know tough times might come as well, but I've decided to tunnel vision in order to get my degree. I help take care of my entire family. I'm the baby of my family, but I act as the oldest. Pressure has been on my shoulders for a long time. I believe I've been destined to overcome and succeed. The lessons I've learned while being in school I believe will stay with me for life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The tuition keeps getter higher. At the end of our course sheets that we must fill out at the end of the semester I always voice my opinion and ask the school advisers and president to stop going up on tuition.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The Tuition keeps going up and it makes me sometimes want to find another school. I love attending Dallas Baptist University but the tuition is getting higher and higher every year. It's almost $1800.00 a class.

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

Starting college at the age of 16, I had a great need for a campus that would enable me to mature socially, emotionally and academically. DBU has more than exceeded my expectations and hopes. The faculty and staff are incredible -- so accommodating, friendly, and truly concerned for the wellbeing of each student. And because of their attitudes and interest, students themselves are caring, friendly and helpful. I have been able to maintain a 3.79 GPA in my college coursework, while making friends and contacts that will positively impact me for the rest of my life. And because DBU is so focused on community service, I've learned so much about the need to help others and positively impact my community. I believe DBU is the best choice I could have made, because I will leave school with not only an outstanding education, but a love for others and a desire to effect change in the world around me.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I would like it to be closer to home (Houston).

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

This has been the friendliest, most accommodating school I've dealt with in terms of admissions, financial aid, academic advising, student body -- really everything. They have called, written letters, sent emails -- so many things -- to let me know how important I am to the school and how much they want me to attend. My advisor returns my calls or emails, usually within an hour, and everyone has bent over backward to help me with any need I have, from housing to financial aid to admissions. They're truly an incredible group of people.

Join the military, take a hiatus from education for a few years, build some scholarship or GI Bill credits, give yourself time to mature, don't be so serious all the time, work less, enjoy life.

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

If I could go back to myself in high school I'd tell myself not to stress. What your high school teachers are saying about college professors are not true, they do not throw you to the wolves right away and they do not come off heartless. Overall they do care about how you are doing in their class as long as you are putting forth an effort and showing them that you want to be there. I'd also tell my young self that making the choice of where you want to go is not that difficult, just take a deep breathe and be honest about what you want out of college, God will give you the answer. Overall, I'd stress that it is important to have fun and not let the confusion and overwhelming atmosphere get to you, because everything works out great!

What's unique about your campus?

At DBU they put the student and their academic and spiritual welfare first. They care whether you are comfortable and want you to feel at home on the campus. They become your family at DBU, because that is what your family does, puts your welfare and how you feel first.

My college is extremely challenging academically, has competitive athletic teams, and consists of a tight-knit and supportive community of students and faculty.

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

There are numerous aspects of college life I would have advised myself to consider when I was still in high school. First of all, in order to have a more accurate representation of a college or university, I would recommend spending quality time on campus, such as staying over in one of the dorms, eating in the cafeteria, sitting in on a class, walking around campus, and talking to students and to faculty. My experiences have shown the necessity of truly acquainting myself with a situation before I commit to it. Furthermore, I would advice high school seniors to intentionally search for a loyal group of friends on campus as soon as possible because having close friends whom I could rely on away from home was a key aspect in enabling me to adjust. I would also counsel practicing and learning not only effective study habits , but also quality lifestyle habits while still in high school. Freshman college students educated in how to care for themselves in terms of health, nutrition, sleep, studies, and friendships could make the transition much easier. Therefore, I would clearly advise taking several steps before high school graduation to best prepare for college life.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known better how to minimize my time spent on reading and comprehending textbooks and lecture notes in order to maximize the productivity of my time.

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

If I could go back and give myself advice, I would tell myself to expect the transition to be incredibly hard. Not ONLY academically, but socially as well. I came from the most incredible group of friends and we all are at different universities this year. I came in being hopeful that I would automatically find people like me, people who I can relate to, people with whom I feel comfortable. However, that's just not how it goes. The transition from the normality of what your life was in high school to what it is in college is huge. I would tell myself not to get discouraged if/when I feel lonely at times. I would tell myself to just give my very best effort to be myself and to invest in people. I would tell myself to not worry, because it truly does get easier in the long run. Finally, I would tell myself to search high and low for any scholarship opportunity available!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The type of person who should not attend this university is someone who wants the typical college experience- football games, huge population, etc. We have about 5,000 students attending Dallas Baptist University, and we don't have a football team. Sad? I know. Also, if you're wanting a large campus or to live in a college town, Dallas really isn't the place to be.
