5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great School. Happy with my decision

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I do feel like Baylor will prepare me for my life after college.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Everyone knows Baylor has some work to do as far as protecting the women on campus. I do feel totally safe here but I hope the sexual assault issue gets better.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I stayed in North Village. Kind of the cream of the crop. Very expensive but also worth it.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Baylor isn't huge on greek life. There are no frat houses. But if you do go greek, there are plenty other people who do as well.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I didn't give this 5 stars because of the recent scandals. Besides that, sports are very exciting here, especially during football season. I wasn't a huge football fan before college but I really got into it once I got to Baylor. It's your typical university with a big time football team

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school so much. I had to decide between Pepperdine and Baylor and I have to say I am so happy with my decision.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Professors are very knowledgeable of their subjects and most find a way to make it interesting, the class size varies from average to very large. There are many courses available in many different areas

Overall Experience: Having a degree form Baylor is like having a platinum or black card, it opens so many doors for the graduate and I think that is definitely due to Baylor's long standing tradition of excellence and professionalism.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe as fas as walking to and from classes and around Waco but the more I hear the more I realize that Baylor has a huge sexual assault problem.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice, most of them are a very relative distance to classes, the best option for dorms would be anywhere in North Village or North/South Russell. My dorm experience was pretty good the room was spacious I only had to share a bathroom with one other person and we had our own living room. our CL made lots of events and get togethers for our floor so it was always exciting.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Although I do agree that Greeks do awesome things in the Waco community I also think that some not all sororities/fraternities are a little snobbish and only seek those with "Daddy's Money" type of bank accounts.

5 College Junior

Athletics: Baylor probably has the top athletic complexes in the state if not the country. Donors are always eager to throw their money our way, mainly because of the successful nature of our various athletic programs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again I would definitely choose Baylor all over again, the atmosphere is just amazing no matter where you are. In and outside of class the professors are always eager to help, classmates become lifetime friends, and there is always someone you can talk to whether it be for academics or spiritual guidance. Needless to say Baylor feels just like home!

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: After my first year I think I had great professors. All of my professors were willing to work with me and help me with anything that I needed. There are so many options especially for students who do not know what they want to do. Classes are all different sizes ranging from lecture halls to small group courses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am completely confident that I will be able to find a job right out of college with a degree from Baylor. We as students have so many opportunities to connect through internships and career fares. So, there is no reason why I would not be able to find a job.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As a girl living on an open campus with the recent troubles with sexual assault, I can honestly say I have never felt unsafe on campus. There are always guards around an options for students out late at night studying such as the golf cart service and the guards and police constantly circling campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus was a whole new experience, I had never lived with that many people at once before. The best dorms to live in were the newly renovated ones; for example North Russel, South Russel, and Teal. Martin, Collins, and Kokernot are the next few getting redone. There were always activities going on in my dorm and there are so many opportunities to meet new people. All of the dorms are in close proximity to the buildings so getting to class is not hard.

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.
