WHAT I LIKED

Baylor is a wonderful school for those who think they will fit into the ideal "type" of Baylor student. However, those who may feel outside or not quite identify with the overall ethos of the university may have a harder time enjoying and routing the university.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The university is trying to improve their support of diversity and acceptance, however, they certainly are not a very welcoming campus to those who are not white and Christian. There are lots of issues with predatory loaning to underprivileged families and some of the academic buildings are in dire need of more funding.

WHAT I LIKED

I really enjoy that there is never a dull moment on campus! There are many clubs that host events daily within the heart of campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I am not fond of the area surrounding the "Baylor Bubble", lots of crime at night.

WHAT I LIKED

Baylor was a challenge, but I got support from my peers and the faculty. The campus is pristine, and the people are amiable. I loved my time there!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

At the time, there was a “bubble” in Waco, Tx. I had to go outside to get a more realistic experience.

WHAT I LIKED

The thing I most liked about Baylor was the caring Christian environment. It is open to so many diverse ethnic groups and people. While it is a Baptist University there are many other religious groups that attend, and Baylor offers courses on other world religions and philosophical topics in addition to its Christian courses. The academics are second to none. Baylor recently attained a top-level R1 research status and it really does live up to its name. There is a lot to study, from Astrophysics to Engineering and Political Science, even Women and Gender Studies, to name a few. I am very confident that Baylor is a great school for those who are willing to be challenged academically and enriched socially.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

One thing to be aware of is that Freshmen are required to stay on campus. From my experience in the South-Russell residence hall, there were some inconveniences with the community showers that cost me some time in preparing for my classes. In all, some dorm rooms might be a bit inconvenient to stay in and it takes some wisdom to pick the right one, especially if you are a freshman.

I didn’t experience anything I didn’t like.

WHAT I LIKED

My education at Baylor has been beneficial to my studies of being a nurse.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

When you continue on to nursing school you are separated from the main campus so the college experience is cut abruptly short.
