Since there is a low budget on food it is not very good more often than not. They do the same different meals just in a rotation that is not even a very good rotation. They cook Mexican food far too often and don't have enough healthy food options. There have been a couple time that the meat wasn't cook throughly and sometimes fruit that has gone bad is left out. But the dessert is usually very tasteful. However, cafe 52 is a great alternative. Everything there is reasonably priced and everything they serve is delicious. It's unfortunate that it is not included as campus dining.

Varsity sports at Central Baptist College are very much celebrated. Our softball, baseball, and soccer teams have advanced in many regional and national tournaments. In the past three years, the athletic department has upgraded uniforms and equipment. However, the gym is still not up to the expectations of the employees and students. The athletes also seem to be excluded from many campus activities. This is not intentional most of the time, but there is a misconception that athletes are not interested in the activities.

The campus is small which I enjoy. They have also built a new academic building and are currently building a new library and have a 20/20 vision plan for 20 projects in 20 years to make the College better. But right now the dorms are very old and there could be more parking, but other than that it is great!
