Administration: The campus strictness is just how it should be. You are expected to attend classes but have openness to miss according to professors.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I have enjoyed several of the parties on campus but don't attend them all. I am glad that there is a variety of parties so that everyone has a choice depending on his/her likes.

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.
