2 College Sophomore

Transportation: If you don't have a car, or know anybody with a car, good luck getting anywhere around Dallas. There are shuttles that take people around campus, but you can walk around campus yourself.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't impressive for the guys. They're gray, everywhere. The girls dorms are better, but also a lot of gray. Spence is very nice, like a hotel. Strict visiting hours. Other on campus housing, like apartments and townhomes, are very nice.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: DBU is an extremely easy school. While they do offer a Christ-centered education, it is not very difficult at all. The atmosphere reminds me of high school, honestly.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Dallas is a big town. If you don't know where you're going, you're sure to get lost. Be sure to know where you're going ahead of time, or you could end up in a bad part of town. Dallas has a lot of things to do, but you have to know what you're looking for.

5 College Junior

Transportation: The shuttle system at DBU is excellent. It is run by student drivers who are always there just in the nick of time to get you to class on time, to drive you up the hill from freshman parking, to give shelter from the freezing cold, the pouring rain, or the sweltering heat. All of the drivers are very friendly and chatty; sometimes people ride the shuttle just to hang out for a bit!

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is quite active on campus. Most undergraduates are members of Greek life, but the students who are not have just as much social opportunity. Participants are usually more involved in their sorority/fraternity events than with general campus events, but there is little differentiation otherwise.

4 College Junior

Facilities: No students drink on campus, but some do drink at other locations.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: To my knowledge, there is no noticeable drug use at this university. Any illegal drug use is prohibited. Students or faculty who use drugs are swiftly and inflexibly dealt with, with the action usually resulting in suspension or expulsion.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Dallas Baptist University has a very close-knit community of students and faculty. The academic programs, particularly Business and Music, are thriving. Each discipline has been carefully provided with passionate and gifted professors who are both interested in the students' academic and personal lives. They genuinely care about their classes: many actually take the time to personally meet each student, whether grades are concerned or not. The University Honors Program, while small, is intellectually challenging, spiritually encouraging, and, much like the other social/academic programs there, allows for students with similar interests and pursuits to connect in an instructive, constructive environment. Social life on campus is vibrant: several Greek Life organizations are flourishing, and there is a plethora of student-led organizations to join, covering a range of interests such as music, sports, devotionals, or volunteer work. It is not difficult for new students to find a group of people to connect with. All in all, the university is very like a family because the campus and classes are so small. If you are looking for a warm and welcoming community environment that also is serious about academics, you should definitely consider this one!

4 College Junior

Weather: The weather is perfect. The only downside is that it is usually windy since the school is located on top of a hill.

4 College Junior

Parking: The campus is small and you can usually find a spot close to the building you are going to; however once classes start it can be very difficult to find a spot.

5 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone, no matter ethnicity, age, religion, or background is welcome and accepted at DBU

5 College Junior

Majors: My major was all online, perfect for me working full time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I am currently finishing my degree in Art at DBU. Overall I have been happy with the program and the professors. However, I would like to see the program grow into more of a commercial art-oriented program. I think that would help students find a job in an art related field after college. My main concern with finding a job in my field is more with the availability of art related jobs with today's economy. I would do it over again if I could and when I begin graduate work, I will be continuing on in the art department.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers: We have one large computer lab with a main area as well as two closed bays each with computers. (The bays are often used by professors for their classes but can also be used by students when they are vacant.) I have never had to wait for a computer to be open in the lab. The printers generally work well and there are always workers there at all times the lab is open who are available and happy to help. I do wish there was a larger print balance for the students every semester, but I haven't had too much of a problem with what we are given. The computers in the lab are fast and I have never had an issue with the internet there. However, the wireless can be spotty and has issues from time to time.

Recent Alumnus

Majors: While I have worked on campus in the art department, I have never had an internship. At the moment I do not plan on seeking one out because I have a full load of classes every semester on top of working a 30 hour a week job plus keeping up with another job on the side to pay for school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: DBU has a variety of majors. The process is really easy to get in as long as your paperwork is submitted on time.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I received my financial aid quickly. It helps to get the forms in early so that you will have best chance of getting the money you need.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Dallas Baptist University is diverse in the student body population, but not in Administration. I love the school but they need more minorities in recruiting positions.

3 College Freshman

Parking: Here at DBU freshmen do get the worst parking because they are only allowed to park at the bottom of the hill which is a hefty walk to the dorms and classes. A positive though is that anyone can park up the hill or in upperclassmen lots on the weekends! Ticketing and fines can be pretty outlandish and the security seems to be after people a lot because sometimes they have nothing better to do, but as long as you follow the rules you should be fine.

4 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is usually quite nice. Granted, it's Texas, so the weather can be pretty bi-polar but most days the weather is great. The only negative aspect for some people, especially girls that really like to wear skirts and dresses, is that DBU is on a hill so when it's windy in Dallas then you can bet that it's going to be EXTREMELY windy at DBU.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I feel that DBU is rather strict about their campus policies but you already know this before applying because the school tells you this. So if you want to go to a school that let's you bring alcohol onto campus or a place that has co-ed dorms then DBU is definitely not the place for you. But if you don't mind these tiny details then DBU is a wonderful place with rules, yes some might seem strict, but they are in place for your safety and well-being.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: DBU has many different ethnic/racial groups and religions on campus but I feel that these people are not always highlighted on campus. Sometimes people just assume you're Baptist, which is understandable since it is a Baptist University, but I feel that they should take into consideration that not everyone might be Baptist.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship but I do plan to have one later. DBU is exceptional at placing student's in internships

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most people live on campus so there is really no reason for off campus living.
