5 College Senior

Majors: I'm in my last year as an Early Childhood Education major. I'm also seeking minor in Spanish. Throughout my time at DBU, I have been wonderfully prepared. I have spent so much time in actual classrooms obeserving teachers, tutoring, and student teaching, if I were to get a teaching job now I would feel very prepared. All of my professors have taught many years in schools before and pass down their knowledge and experiences to us. They have all been extremely encouraging in pursuing out teaching dreams while they make sure we are very successful in every step of the certification and graduation process.

Athletics: DBU's men's baseball team is our pride and joy. They have had outstanding success over the years. Our women's volleyball team and men's basketball team have also been highly ranked. Other Varsity sports offered include men's (new addition as of Fall 2012) and women's soccer, tennis, cross country, hockey, and swim. Our workout facilities have recieved some improvements over the years adding newer equipment and an increase in workout space. Intramural sports are treated by the student body almost as big as our varsity sports. Many people get involved in intramural for some clean competition while great friendships and relationships are built.

Computers: Each semesters, every student gets a limited number of pages - somewhere close to 500, I believe - to print off in the computer lab at no charge! So much money on paper and ink are saved in your wallet. The computers have all the latest software to help improve the quality of your work. However, the computers could be made to start up just a little bit faster. The computer lab is a great place to get lots of studying and/or computer work done. Wireless access is available all over campus, but at times it can slow down as most wi-fi locations can at times.

Local Atmosphere: DFW metroplex has so much to offer and DBU is in the heart of it! Sports fans can enjoy the Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Frisco Roughriders, and Dallas Stars. Awesome attractions include Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor. UTA, TCU, & SMU are just down the way from us, offereing excellent rivalries. There are thousands of diverse foods to try, and all in very close proximity. Downtown Dallas' West End is great to visit, as well as The Arts District, Up Town, and Sundance Square in Fort Worth. Dallas is such an amazing city to live in! There's always something new to try.

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: DBU is located outside of Dallas, so it is very secluded from Dallas. There really is not any off-campus housing near by that I would ever suggest. I would not recommend anyone to live off campus. It would be a drive (and no one wants to deal with Dallas traffic).

Campus Housing: Both boys dorms and one of the girls dorms is the original dorm. So while it might be really old, DBU does an excellent job keeping them looking sharp. When you submit a maintenance request, they are very quick to respond. The on-campus apartments and Townhomes are great though! They are much newer and are very well kept. They try to keep them looking clean on the outside, and they spend a good amount of time making sure the inside (appliances and floors/walls) look great.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: DBU has done a great job at preparing me for life. The student and teacher ratio is very good. I have benefitted the most from my professors. They truly care about your grades and about you personally. They will take time to meet with you to, even for the "stupid" questions you might have. The staff is great. They have shaped me and have helped me find success in school.

3 College Senior

Computers: The computer lab is nice (along with the Apple lab), but the internet and network is very unreliable.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Baseball .. my ooh my are they good lookin! Every guy that I've checked out on campus has been a baseball player. My roomates now make fun of me.

4 College Junior

Majors: Ministry, Music, & Education – My Major, Kinesiology, was easy to get into as it is not a mainline Major like the ones listed above.

3 College Junior

Facilities: Smaller Than I Thought – I love this school, but I wish the Athletic Department was more established. They are, thankfully, renovating and expanding the gym for athletes.

5 College Junior

Majors: Kinesiology for Education – My friend's last semester of senior year consists of working full-time at an elementary school for internship. She absolutely loves it. I hope I get to work at a Physical Therapy office all Senior year :)

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Eh...It's Alright – Aside from Uptown Dallas, everything near Arlington and Grand-Prairie is average. Galleria and Uptown is fancy and fun.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: Apply for the CLS Scholarship!!! Christian Leadership Scholarship is something that is suggested to all students. It covers from 10% to +40% of tuition. They also have a church matching scholarship if you were involved in your local church.

Guys & Girls: Trying to Get Your "MRS Degree"? There's an old joke on campus that most girls here are having their parents pay for thousands of dollars of tuition so they can get their "MRS. degree". (Pays $40,000+ for tuition = drops out Senior year to get married). And "ring by Spring" (meets at SWAT welcome week = engaged 6 months later). I'm here to study, BUT must admit that I thought there would be hotter guys here. Lots of good lookin' gals but not enough good guys to go around. Maybe the selection is more appealing if you're a freshman? Eh :/

Greek Life: To Greek or Not to Greek.. I am still on the fence about joining ADK or Zeta Sorority. Greek life seems fun on campus but is not a huge deal. Rush is not until October now for Fall semester- kinda nice, considering it allows for time to get settled in. ADK was/is my first choice because of friends involved, however, their reputation is "Blonde, snobby..." (I refrain from elaborating but I think you get it). Regardless, Sorority/Frat Life offers the community service opportunities needed for many scholarships.

Overall Experience: Warm Fuzzy Feelings – Transferring to Dallas Baptist University from California was the best decision I've made in most recent years. I enjoyed how easy the admissions process was, mainly due to the helpfulness of DBU's lovely staff. Everyone is friendly here and the small class size helps students build re pore with Professors. The campus is beautiful, ESPECIALLY for Texas. Coming from the California coastline, I was a bit worried about moving to a flat state but DBU campus is a breath of fresh (humid) air. People are generally nicer here. DBU offers many events and community service opportunities for students with CLS scholarships. Oh, and DBU offers a "Christian Leadership Scholarship" to most students which ranges from 10% upwards with help for tuition. The campus is MUCH smaller than I had imagined, but I am perfectly content here. If you are hoping to go to parties or be close to downtown Dallas nightlife, this school is not for you. I "Mellow, beautifully-made, suburban-type" atmosphere..athletic/preppy.

Off-Campus Housing: Town-Homes, Brownstones, and Apartments – I'm loving the convenience of living in the town-homes on campus. Sharing a larger place with 6 roomates is only $395 per person. The house is spacious, however, water temperature doesn't get that hot. I hear that the "Brownstones" are the nicest places on campus (woodfloors, 3 stories, stainless steel appliances, and more spacious). Parking is fair. If you plan to move in to an apartment or townhome that has not been vacant, make sure it is clean (Apartment life will not "turn-over" or deep clean a space unless it is vacant). I say this because my roomates had never heard of a vacuum.

Campus Dining: Healthy Options AND Home-Style Cooking – I'm no longer worried about Freshman-Fifteen (or 'Transfer-Twenty' for that matter). DBU offers a lot of healthy options that taste great. Many inexpensive salad/chicken wraps. Menu is very diverse. My favorite 'cheat' food is the Patriot Cafe's Mex Max Bowl which is comparable to a Chipotle Burrito Bowl and is only $5! Also, their meal plans are affordable. I opted for the Patriot plan which consists of $300 Patriot Bucks + 15 Cafeteria meals. So far I haven't eaten in the Caf that much because it's very crowded.

Transportation: Mount Doom – DBU feels pretty isolated without a car. I recently moved from California and sold my car, thinking I would find public transportation. I was wrong. DBU feels like Mount Doom from Lord of the Rings- it is extremely isolated and very hilly. I get my work out everyday walking from the town homes to class. 63 giant awkward stairs. Good thing the roomates have cars but all things aside, I LOVE DBU!

3 College Junior

Computers: Small and Slow – The Computer Lab is extremely small and it takes up to a minute to start computers. BUT, Computer Lab staff is excellent and will fix your computer free of charge. Saved me a lot of money.

Local Atmosphere: Dallas is my original hometown, so I know almost everything about the city. We are on a hill by ourselves,therefore it gives us some inclusion to get to know one another without the hustle-bustle of city life, yet downtown is just a few miles away from us. They is alot to do in the city and neighboring suburbs, but with the great student life we have, we can stay on campus, and have a blast!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Majority of the classes are what you would expect at a university, difficult at times, but very accessible staff to help you understand the curriculum given by the professors. Test aren't too difficult, however the papers can be lengthy and repetitive. I think the cost of the tuition for general classes are way to expensive, but they do take transfer credit from other less expensive community colleges near by.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: It was available anywhere on campus. Not very many dead spots. I do like their security setup they have. You have to register your computer in order to be apart of the network, therefore, the opportunity for random thefts and phishers is minimal. The labs are always available, and there are plenty of computers to work at. There staff is okay. Majority are knowledgeable on technology, and others are just as clueless as most students. If it is a peak hour on campus for internet use, the network does slow down quite a bit, but it will soon pick up, and be back to high speed.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm the dept. of music, and it was fantastic! They are current with teaching methods, and are available to help with any questions you may have. I don't always understand everything that is taught to me in my classes, but they understand that it is a process to train our ears to hear what they can here as music educators now. I enjoy all of my classes, event he really tough classes that I don't do very well in . The staff are amazing, and they are passionate about what they do. It rubs off on us, and build a passion at love for education.
