After Baylor University

Baylor University has been a great place to study. I have loved the small class room sizes and getting to know my professors well. The professors are always trying to get to know their students and are the first to help if one is struggling. I know from first hand experience in my Christian Scriptures class.

Great university. Very difficult academics for sciences, maths and languages. You will get a great education, but it does not come easy. Baylor is really annoying with their constant "hey look we're diverse" activities, but other than that it's a great school. Wouldn't recommend staying in Brooks Residential college (its known as the weird kids on campus) or any of the leadership colleges. I would recommend staying in university housing or Brooks flats.

Baylor tries to make it self seem diverse even though it is a baptist school. The university fits in with people who are conservatives and whites the most. Coming from out of state i have not liked my experience so far and baylor is not at all what i thought it would be i will be probably transfering next year or hopefully next semester.
