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?

Houston Baptist is a wonderful school for academics. The professors are extremely knowledgeable about the subject they are teaching and are always willing to answer questions. They will push you to do your best, this school is not for those who want to party and/or slack off. You will really need to work to do well here. The small campus is ideal for those who want to focus on academics, however there is still plenty to do on and off campus in Houston with friends such as the zoo, museums, and the galleria, which are all close by.

The academics are very different at my school being that it is a public Christian University. So most of the curriculum is like Christianity classes and stuff and I love the atmosphere because there's a small class number for every class so you have better interaction with the professor

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

Congratulations! You just passed through one of the toughest years of high school: junior year. Even though your SAT and ACT scores were not what you desired, you did really well in your classes. Now, you may think that just because you finished one of the most crucial years of your high school career, you can just slack off and let loose. Well, think again. As a senior, maintain your GPA, strive to be your best, and do not, by no means, procrastinate. Yeah, procrastination is a tempting demon. He will reel you in, promise you relaxation and peace, and before you know it, you have two papers due, a project, and an exam all on the same day. Just do not do it! Senior year is important because, even if it seems cliche, just the beginning. In order to get to that university of your dreams, you have to get through senior year. Challenge yourself. You have a lot of potential and can achieve everything you set your mind to. Stop doubting yourself! You do it too much, and all you are doing is hurting yourself. I wish you the best and that God blesses you in everything.

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

It is not the prettiest school, but it is a good school.
