Overall Experience: Overall I love Baylor! Everything from the squirrels on campus to the professors. However, I do wish that it was a little bit more affordable, but I guess that's the price of a great education.

Overall Experience: Baylor is exactly what you would think it would be. You'll have a great time if you're in the Greek life but if you're not you will either have to be in Pre-med to "have a life". It's very difficult to meet genuine people. The campus is beautiful and the classes are awesome but the people are the worst.

Overall Experience: I knew I wanted to go to Baylor when I was in the 7th grade. It was my dream school and my dream came true. Their theatre program is amazing. They have not only connections in New York but in Chicago, Dallas and even in Europe The professors are wonderful. They truly care about you as not only a student but as a person. The department is welcoming and is truly one big family, and that was one thing I made sure of when I went on my other college visits. No other place felt right. The moment step on Baylor's campus I feel home.

Campus Housing: I live in an on campus community that is separated from the actual campus. While it is a lengthly trip to class each morning, the experience is perfect.

Guys & Girls: Ring by Spring is a thing.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: First year students are taught how to be safe both on and off campus.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There's nothing very special about Greek life except for Sing.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Football season is the best. Basketball is also pretty good.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing is average. Be careful not to live anywhere too far from the Baylor bubble.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are not many parties.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Locally owned restaurants are the best.

4 College Junior

Administration: The rules are not that bad. People say they are strict, but we have a reputation to uphold and the rules are there for a reason.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is decent and you have plenty of options. However, it is pricey and somewhat repetitive.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Take care of financial aid as soon as possible. The bill is a nightmare because the school is so expensive. The cashiers office is very helpful, but you need to talk to them early on.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: On campus housing is community focused. The rules are pretty strict, but that is not a problem. The worst dorms are Kokernot and Collins. The best are North Russell and East Village. Study rooms are converted into rooms for overflow students. Although there are more students in one room you have plenty of space and it is a lot of fun. Unfortunately, these students are moved into regular rooms when space becomes available and this is very inconvenient. Move in is simple and easy because volunteers get it done in a matter of minutes. There are also plenty of hall events to attend.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

When polling immediate post-graduation opinions, it's pretty common to hear "Happiness is seeing Waco in the rearview mirror." However, most students are relatively satisfied with their time at Baylor after nostalgia has set in. That nostalgia seems to be proportionate to the amount of time they've spent out of school, but before long, the newly-made alumni have nothing but rosy stories and donations to share. Their bad experiences fall under the omerta code of silence. For four years, at least, count on being frustrated with the social scene, overloaded with classes, poor, and running on no sleep and caffeine. The friends you make by going through that become your family and are there for life. It's all part of the college experience.

The odd thing is, an unusual amount of graduates, despite their protests, never leave Waco. Baylor family feels kin to the mob because just when you thought you were out, they suck you back in. It's blood in, blood out, and if you hate it enough, you'll leave before you're in too deep. The family environment really does seep through. Everywhere you go, especially if it's in Texas, the Baylor degree is recognized, and the school itself is well known for networking. Bears stick together and hire together. In spite of some negative experiences and living in a monotonous town for four years, if you stumble or fall in life you can count on a Baylor grad being there to pick you up and bleed green and gold.
