What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion they are trying too hard to be Baylor, however, I rather enjoy the community atmosphere created on campus. The student to professor ratio is one of my favorite things outside of the staff and faculty being extremely involved in student life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall HBU is a good school, it may not be the most exciting school, but it has been there for me and has helped me learn many experiences. Adulting is not an easy thing to transition to, but this school is so friendly and very helpful, they are even considerate. Although you might see that this school may not have the best sport teams, the best academics, or the stereotypical college life experience, I feel like it's a great place to go to school and grow as a person. There is always clubs and groups, and of course since this is more of a religious and conservative school, it may not always be "lit", the campus is small as well with few attractions around the area, but take it from someone who has completely seen how this school is like: HBU is a great place for those who don't want to go somewhere big, crowded, or too hectic. If you like the peaceful scene and small village like vibes, come here, you'll feel at home. Much love and good luck!

It is a peaceful campus with lots of opportunities to grow academically and spiritually. The students and staff are very friendly with a strong support system. There are many opportunities to grow as a leader at Houston Baptist University. It is a great university with many nearby places, and year round events to help balance the social and academic lives of students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

HBU is student-focused and prides themselves on helping students grow academically, professionally, and spiritually. The campus is very safe, and accessible to many near-by restaurants and hang-out spots,. The professors are always available when you need them and the class sizes are nice and small so that students are able to become familiar with their fellow classmates and professors. As a commuter, I don't know much about HBU's resident life, but I have heard mostly good things about it. Other than the unexceptional cafeteria food and little amount of on-campus activities available, I have heard it 's a pretty nice place to live. My experience at HBU has been very positive so far. I have never had a problem regarding academics or campus activities. Overall, I would recommend HBU to other students whose focus is to gain a higher education in an environment where they are accepted and supported.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! It's a small campus, which is not for everyone. They can enforce their rules which can upset some students but that's what makes the campus feel so safe. The professors are always available and truly want to see you succeed. It's cozy and fun.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Houston Baptist University is that it is an exceptional school. I love the close-knit community, the diversity, and culture on this campus. Everyone knows everyone, and even if they don't know you they greet you with a warm smile and a cheerful hello. I'm very grateful that HBU has great faculty and staff who are willing to participate in class assignments, motivate you, and pray for you! My professors are really passionate about their specialized areas of expertise and are big on developing personal networks with each student. In most classes, our professors prefer to be addressed by their first name, which is really cool! What's even better is the fact that they know your name! I appreciate how much students are encouraged to be involved with decisions taking place on campus and in their college department. Before a new professor is hired, students are usually asked to sit in on a demo lecture and submit a helpful survey afterward. I always feel involved and comforted at knowing that help is just a text, call, or email away. I feel confident in my decision on attending HBU. This is hands down one of the friendliest campuses that I've had the privilege of attending.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I am a commuter and have little opinion regarding residential life, I have found that this educational institutional has provided an environment that fuses together both academic and spiritual education. This university's relatively small classes, has also provided students with the opportunity to form a connection with their instructors as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Houston Baptist University is an OK school. Its location is not in the best place. The food is not all that great. However, the food is getting better since they opened up the Shipleys and Chipotle, and Salata. The class work is very hard, so be prepared to study, especially science.
