Mason - 10/20/2020

Very closed-minded school with antiquated views and beliefs. I had a horrible time during my 4 years at the University and absolutely would have transferred after the first semester if my parents didn't share the same closed-minded beliefs. There is nothing this college offers that resembles anything that you would see in a real-life scenario. 1/10, do not attend. Homophobes.

Arianna - 10/02/2020

this is an over the top amazing school and i will be going here in 2021 so i highly reccomend it. I think that if you do end up going to this school you will like it as much as i do because they have so many opporotunities that you do not want to miss out on

Caleb - 07/29/2020

It's a good school, the place is pretty much a ghost town on the weekends but if you have a car to go somewhere it's not too bad. Football and baseball are the big sports around here, it is a pretty good community. The teachers here are very friendly and will help you if you try to access them inside and outside of class. The students here are friendly, it just takes a bit to get used to.

Vivianna

The University of Mary Hardin-Baylor is exceptional. At first, I was wary of the atmosphere and classes, but this has become home to me. The professors and faculty are very involved with the students, which is always great! The students are all very encouraging and welcoming. There are plenty of clubs to join and get involved in. The campus is always kept up to par very clean and beautiful! I always feel at ease here. Strongly recommend this campus!!!

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

    Get a goddamn license, find a car, and go to where you (we? I?) know you would have liked to go. If the school I actually did go to is any indicator, you'll do just fine if you rely on yourself and don't expect anyone else to pick up the slack. You come from a long line of hard workers, the blood in your heart knows what to do. Remember to make time to read and sleep and write, don't let your greatest talent rust over. Be strong and courageous, never falter in support of your friends, always comfort them, never be a burden. Your greatest challenge will be the people around you. Visit the family more; you mean the world to them. Things are about to go to shit, you can already tell. Be like a rock, solid and firm. Your brothers and mother depend on it. Also, waste no time in losing weight and growing a beard, once you do that you'll finally be able to look in the mirror and smile. That helps.

    The University of Mary Hardin Baylor is rich with tradition. Each year the incoming freshman class has a welcome week. Welcome week takes place the week before classes start. During welcome week the freshman class is split into "family" groups, with upper class-man taking responsibilities as leaders. The freshman class grows close to their classmates in this week so when the academic year starts the students in the freshman class already have lasting relationships with their classmates.

  14. What are the academics like at your school?

    The main sections that UMHB really excels at are Christian Studies, Nursing, and Teaching. For anything else i really suggest you go to another school. I'm not downing UMHB but it's really expensive. If you decide you want to front the bill in a case of a Business, or Accounting degree you are really just paying for the community and teacher to student ratio. (which isn't bad ur just not receiving UMHB in all its glory)

  15. Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?

    For the most part... We have a small crowd of people that like to do the partying and drinking seen (which is against school policy FYI). But for the most part everyone has a good head on their shoulders.

  16. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    There is ALWAYS something going on at UMHB to do. We have CAB (Campus Activities Board) that puts on all different kinds of events. Pretty much on a weekly basis you can find something to do. We have Stunt Night which is kinda like a Saturday Night Live, where each class gets to put on a funny skit and we get to judge it via txt voting. There is just to much to list.

  17. What is the stereotype of students at your school?

    UMHB students are very outgoing and friendly. UMHB is a place where everyone knows each other. Not in the since of let me into your personal bubble and gossip, but because it is such a small school you build community with everyone you know. Most students have a heart for God (or at least want to) but if you don't that's ok too. UMHB is a place of learning influenced by God but understand too non-christians ARE welcome!

  18. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    UMHB is located in Belton TX where there is not too much to do so we are stuck being creative and making things up (which can be just as fun if not better). We have a small movie theatre (The Beltonian) which has either cheap or free movies showing (and yes they are up-to-date new releases). Other than that we have Wal-Mart (lol) and Austin only 45 minutes away. Lots of first year complaints have come from the rules that are put in place on campus (no drinking, period, no guys in girls dorms or vice-versa unless posted times), but its really not that bad. At least the dorm that i'm in (McLane) the staff isn't out to get you.
