5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Since DBU is a private school, it is way more safe and secure and they also have DBU police and DBU security at all times.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not been to another college campus that can compare to how amazing DBU is

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Every staff member at DBU is just like another family member, they are there to help you and pray for you so that you can accomplish everything you dream.

Campus Housing: everything about DBU is just perfect

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: love that no matter what you are not seen as something less if you are not in greek life

Athletics: Such a perfect place to be

Health & Safety: DBU feels extremely safe. We have security that patrols 24 hours a day and we have our own police department on campus. They do a good job of protecting us and making us feel safe! There is barely any campus crime as far as I know. Security starts checking student ID's at the gate at midnight so they won't let anyone who is not a student on campus unless they are dropping someone off. That security measure is especially comforting.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Courses are great, and every class integrates faith. Professors are very personable and friendly. They know you by name and want to see you succeed! There's a pretty wide variety of courses. Not a ton of fun electives but there's variety in other areas. Class size is pretty small. I think the biggest class I've ever had was maybe 60 students. Most classes are 20ish. They pray in class and do devotionals as well which I really enjoy.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's a lot of on campus jobs, you just have to be proactive and search and apply. Alumni are pretty involved. Many alumni work on campus or eventually become donors of the school. Employers are really friendly and most are Christians so you are in a Christ-centered atmosphere at work as well. The career center is sometimes helpful! I feel like it's more useful to just go by different offices yourself and ask for applications, etc.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are a few dorms at DBU. They aren't co-ed, so there are 2 guy dorms and 2 girl dorms. Spence would probably be the nicest girl dorm. The rooms are newer and you get your own bathroom that you share with suitemates. There are also apartments, townhomes and brownstones on campus as well. This housing is for upperclassmen only. They are more spacious and a lot nicer than the dorms! There are a couple pools at the dorms and townhomes. Social atmosphere is good since you are living so close to people. If you put yourself out there, you definitely have the opportunity to meet lots of people. Sometimes your roommates/housemates will become your best friends. Cost is average. After doing the math, it can actually be a bit cheaper to move into upperclassmen housing after your freshman year rather than staying in the dorms. Meal plans are pretty expensive so when you take that out of the cost and replace it with a grocery budget, you save a ton of money. All upperclassman housing is at the bottom of the hill so you have to walk all the way up to class everyday which is a bummer. But it beats the dorms! Housing process is pretty easy as well. The have lease signing every semester and you can reserve rooms in the dorms once you're here for a semester.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: DBU's most popular sport is baseball. Our team is incredibly talented and we were one of the top in the nation last season. 5 players were drafted into the MLB last season alone. Many students and faculty come and support our baseball team! We don't have a football team, which disappoints a lot of people. Basketball games can be fun with the half time performances. Our athletic facilities are great!

Overall Experience: I love Dallas Baptist because it is truly a Christ-centered school. We pray before starting the class, most classes have a devotional before lecturing and the professors are extremely personable, offering you their help whenever you need it. The professors know you by name and really care about you and your success. Most of them will even give you their cell phone numbers to reach out if you ever need help or have questions! DBU hosts some pretty fun events and there are a lot of ways to get involved through clubs, organizations, Greek life, intramurals, etc. I would definitely choose to attend DBU again if I had to do it over. I've enjoyed my experience here!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are opportunities to have fun here (without drugs and alcohol) but as far as the "party scene" there is almost no existence of it to my knowledge.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The library isn't the only place you can study. I know that at the Lange co-ed there is a specific study room if you don't want to walk all the way to the library if you're not getting peace and quiet from your hall.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: DBU is a pretty conservative school, but in few cases seem less conservative. They seem very concerned about being "noticed" and do not want a bad name attached to them. LGBT people, if any, are quiet here being that DBU does not allow homosexual relations on campus.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs/alcohol have no concern or interest to me. Since this is a Christian school we are a dry campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security here is to the max to where we even have our own police force. DBU's zip code actually is among those below the poverty line which in turn leads to crime and other issues. The security is a high priority on campus to where it seems like DBU is a different world than "out there".

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses and professors I've had for the most part are a strong suit at this school. Many classes find themselves praying before they start- a definite plus. There is a strong chance for you to interact with professors and consult with them if need be.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: These ratings reflect the dorms (Lange and Williams). If I had to pick what the undesirable thing on campus is it would be the dorms without a doubt. Not to say that they are unlivable, they are decent, but are not in any way up to par with what we are paying. The people in my hall more or less make up for it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Honestly have not been to a lot of games but pride for the Patriots is really high here, especially with baseball.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: DBU is honestly quite a remarkable place to be. Sure. some things could really improve but it's not bad. It's been a great experience so far.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The plumbing has been an issue all semester. The rooms are small but the closet space is adequate. Over all it's not bad but it really isn't great. It's about average for a dorm.

Greek Life: I am not in Greek life but many of my friends are and they love it and the only difference is that they are busy on Monday nights now.

Athletics: I love baseball and our team is one of the absolute best!!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school! I love the people and the professors and everyone genuinely cares about your well-being and how you are doing. The few things I would change would be the cafeteria. It is definitely the worst food I have ever had and sometimes it isn't even eatable. Other than the food DBU is great!
