Describe your favorite campus traditions.

It is know to be a religious school . As a private school , HBU really wants their students to experience God. With the requirement of eighty Chirstian Life Worship points before graduation , everyone has an opportunity to hear, communicate , and worship God together.

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

Going back to my high school self I would tell my self to relax. I would tell myself not to be so anxious to leave home. Although I was ready to spread my wings and fly from the coup, I can't do that until I graduate from college. I may feel that I am ready to live college life as it is potrayed on the television, but like in h.igh school my parent's strict rules an expectations keep me from living such a life. I might as well have enjoyed my last high school year, but I was to busy worrying about how I was going to leave home most of the time.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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

The best advise that I have for prospective students and their parents, is to make sure that the student is confident about his choice of major. To find the right college, the student and his parents should know the financial cost of the school and how adaptable the student is in that environment. The parents should acknowledge, notify and warn their prospective student the danger of partying and drinking too much and how that could lead to the student's failure.

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

The conservativeness of the school, and the preference they have for other students.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A hardworking, serious student, financially well off.

Focus on the career you want and make it relevant to your major. Speaking to your advisor is very very helpful when choosing courses. Be aware of private schools! EXPENSIVE!

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It is a private school where Christianity was heavily influenced.

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

I think the most important thing to look for are all the available distractions outside of school. Anyone can get a good education at any school, it just depends on how hard you work. The information taught at every school is about the same, it is just a matter of how well a student can balance school work with all the aspects of a new social life. Houston Baptist University is a very religious campus, so it is very hard to stray away from the main reason you go to school. It does not have to social life equivalent to a major state university (LSU, UT, Flordia, Tennessee).

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

I wold tell them to find a college that suits you. If your a person that likes the company of others, then you should pick a university. If your a person that likes to stay to yourself, then a smaller college is best. Remember, that you wont have a good college experience if you are unhappy. They should try to join some clubs while in college because you could make lots of new people who have the same ideas as you. Make the most of college, it could greatly affect your life. I made the mistake of going to a college that did not reflect me as a person and I greatly regretted it. Don't make the same mistake. I didnt join any activities and I greatly wished that I could change time and do everything over again. Have fun and at the same time, study to attain your career.

What's unique about your campus?

Honestly, the best thing about my school ould be the professors. They were really nice to me. I could go to any professors and they would give me advice and help when I needed it. They really cared about a student's progress and would offer study sessions and make up days to any would wanted it. I felt that I was lucky to attend their classes.

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

I brag most about the professors. They were so caring about their students progress

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

Make sure you have some money saved for school because it is very expensive. If you don't have any money for school, go to a community college, then transfer all your credits to a 4-year college/university. Another option would be to get a full-time job for a little while and use that money to help pay for college.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

anyone who is well rounded and very diverse.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

the cost of courses and living on campus.

The classes are very small, even the basic classes. You really get to know your teachers and class mates. This makes the learning environment more enjoyable and easy. I have had classes as big as 35 people to as small at 8.

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

Please research your students particular field of study and plan early than their senior year of high school. Look for as many financial opportunities as possible. Look for colleges that have a wide range of strong programs to make the most of your education. Never sell yourself short of what college you think you can and can't attend. Make the most of the time you have in college studying and getting to know yourself. You may never get the same opportunity again. Don't try to please everyone. Find people you can trust. Care about others and they will care about you. Keep close contact with your professors and respect them because they write the recommendation letters and get you scholarships and jobs. Get as much sleep as possible. Never give up.
