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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a freshman on campus and I've been around long enough to know the facilities and overall view of HBU well. From the library to the fitness center, there are plenty of areas for students to hang out around and to enjoy the scenery because since the campus is small pretty much everybody knows each other and news spread around fast. News are often displayed on the TV monitors at the main buildings as well as people chalking the news onto the sidewalks to spread the information. Also the education from the professors are top notch because they professor take the time to get to know each individual which in turns helps us students learn better in class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very nice, small campus with awesome professors. The classes are smaller than other universities so professors are more available to students which is great. However, there's not much to do on campus if you get bored and the parking situation is terrible because there are so many commuter students. Overall, it's a good place to focus on studying and there's lots of help available whenever you need it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although our campus is not one of the largest ones, I value its quality over its quantity. At HBU the class sizes are similar to high school class sizes, which makes it extremely easy to get to know your professors or get the one on one help you need. Since HBU is a religious school the professors often pray for our success and genuinely care for the students. On campus there is free tutoring and counseling if needed. The students here are generally nice and helpful. One of my favorite things about HBU is that there is always some type of social event going on and students are informed of those through a weekly newsletter. The school also often offers informational sessions on topics like financial literacy and workshops that help students with their resumes. There is a huge spiritual life on campus as well as multiple sororities and fraternities. Overall, I love my school and I am so thankful to be here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

HBU has alot to offer, I feel as if I made a great choice in choosing this as my university. At first, I only came to this school because of their nursing program, but once I was accepted into the school and into the program I didn't know that the school was capable of alot of things. Very diverse, each major was known and heard, there was greek life, on and off campus housing was great, food was good, libraries were quiet, and there were a bunch of opportunities to study abroad. I also like how our school was Christian-Baptist based, as I am that myself, and it definitely made me want to reignite my spiritual well-being. The only downside is that is a little expensive since it is a private school, but other than that I would definitely recommend this school because they have a great education system and an awesome faculty and student to faculty ratio.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I don't like it one bit. After one semester I will now be transferring to HCC where the classes are much cheaper and there is more university experience. Friends are hard to make, the school events are activities are mostly only for people who live on campus because as a student who lives of campus I know nothing of what happens, I just go to my class and then go home because it is that boring. The prices are extremely high and they make you pay for a mandatory class which is not fair since we could be using that money for a class we actually need. The financing office are bad at their jb, I owe the school 8000 dollars and I could be owing a 1000 less but my fafsa won't go through and it is such a hassle. HBU, Houston Boring University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a very small school with around 3000 people in attendance. I enjoy this because it allows me the have real relationships with my professors and advisers. The on-campus housing allows you to interact with many different people and make fast friends with all the different actives happening week to week. We host stuff like game tournaments, discussions, and even held a debate during the election in the lobby. Overall it's a good school with plenty of things to offer and I would recommend it to most people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In the beginning I wasn't sure how i would fit in to Houston Baptist University but I can honestly say that it has been the best decision I have made. Since being here my relationship with God has gotten stronger and I've grown so much as a person. The facilities available to students are great and the professors are amazing. the campus is beautiful and there are always activities going on so you can meet new people and grow as a community.
