4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Baylor, so far I have only had one crappy professor, but my experience has been great overall. I am about to enter my sophomore year as a nursing major and I have made amazing friends and fond memories that I enjoy looking back upon. Baylor has been a great fit for me and I am very proud of my school and being called a Baylor bear. Sic 'em.

Overall Experience: My advisers have been very helpful in telling me about jobs that I can get after I complete my Bachelor's of Science in Nursing.

Health & Safety: Since my freshman year on Baylor has come and passed, there have been numerous sexual assault cases that have come to light. One of my friends and classmate was sexually assaulted at a frat part while she was drunk and we have some frats on campus who are known for drugging girls. Baylor is fairly strict on what they allow in freshman dorms, but that hasn't stopped the host of rapes that have occurred. They need to improve campus safety and Title IX training.

Campus Housing: The freshman housing on campus is okay. From my experience at Kokernot Residence Hall, many of the CL's (community leaders) play favorites when it comes to enforcing the rules, and only write up certain residents. The shower room can be a little gross and so can the bathroom, but they do get cleaned everyday of the week, twice a day.

Greek Life: Greek life is a big deal on Baylor's campus. It seems that at least 1 in 4 people you come across are going to be in some kind of frat or sorority. It's such a big deal that there are even hierarchies within the two. There have "top-tier" sororities, which are really picky, and they have the "low" sororities, which accept anyone in order to meet their membership quota. Sometimes it's just safer to not go Greek, which is what I decided.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Baylor University emphasizes it's love for sports by providing plenty of opportunities for intramural sports and our varsity sports. During any of our varsity sport seasons, students are given free tickets to the games, which is really nice.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Baylor University is alive with unique experiences and many opportunities to get involved in campus life. As a nursing major, I will only be spending two years of my undergraduate at the main campus, but I am very excited to attend the nursing school in Dallas. I love Baylor and I love the opportunities I have been afforded to succeed here.

Health & Safety: You tend to hear a lot about negative Baylor incidences in the media and i think that is because we are a highly publicized school. I don't think, however, our campus is less or more secure than another campus. The security measures set in place help to keep everyone as safe as they can be.

Overall Experience: Since Baylor is a smaller school, there are more opportunities to succeed. The administration has set up a system of academic support for the students so there's always someone to help. Class sizes tend to stay small and personal. it is easy to get help from the professors and make sure to utilize the SI sessions, they really do help. There's variety of courses for a menagerie of majors.

Overall Experience: As a first year student, I have not used the system in place for internships/careers but I have heard it is helpful.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are quite a few options for on-campus housing, some of them aren't really worth the money but the social atmosphere is good because you get to meet a lot of people that you live with and most likely have classes with. Living on-campus is really convenient because you are closer to your classes and don't have to worry about driving and parking and the weather is mostly nice for the year so there's not a lot of worry about inclement weather.

Greek Life: I am not personally part of the greek life but have many friends who are and they seem to enjoy it. It brings people together in a closer community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The support that the student body has for the the sports is great. The athletes have state of the art facilities and the non-athlete facilities are great too. Our teams put all their effort into being the some of the best in the country and Baylor prides itself in that.

Health & Safety: On campus there are not many issues and I feel relatively safe walking throughout campus. The major problems occur off campus at parties, where there are many people, and someone gets caught in a bad situation. There are police going around campus and around the outer rim in housing areas to make sure the area is safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes can be difficult if you do not put the effort into them. I hear many people complain about a certain class, but it is either the hate professor because they won't curve a grade or they are not trying. The professors are very open to you going to office hours, and they want to help you understand the material as much as possible. I have got close to a couple of professors that are in my major because I put myself out there to meet them outside of class.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They are many recruiting sessions that happen during semesters that are open to helping students get jobs or internships. The alumni of Baylor are always willing to help current students get jobs in the field that they are seeking degree in. There are high quality recruiters that come to the school to do information sessions such as Amazon, Southwest Airlines, USAA, etc..

Campus Housing: I loved living on campus my first year because everything was closed to me and I did not have to rush to get ready in the morning. The people that lived in my dorm were cool, we each hang out in each others room every other weekend. There are laundry machines on each floor, so no need to where about laundry. In the lobby, there are some vending machines and a ping pong table to socialize with others.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not in a greek life, but I know many people who are, and they all act the same. The school is not spirit on who is in greek life or not, it is all one community. Greeks do many great things around campus and host many events that bring big crowds. There is no greek housing, many greeks live together but no set house.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our spirit for our school teams is through the roof. When it comes to football season must of the seats are already sold out weeks in advance. There are also many intramurals and club teams for students to join, its all based on preference.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Baylor University is awesome! If I had to make the decision all over again I would choose to Baylor all over again. They make sure there are many opportunities to make friends before the first day of class which helps ease the nervous. Everyone is generous and we all love the pride of our school.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: My school works very hard to prevent and create awareness about sexual assaults

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Baylor has excellent professors who are very passionate about the subject they teach. The quality is pretty good, as long as you're in a class that you're willing to work at.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from Baylor is highly respected and valued. Most grads from Baylor receive a job they want and worked for.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The campus housing facilities are slowly getting redone, which is great because they are really gross.

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.
