3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Definitely an excellent academic school. If you are here for the academics, and DBU offers an area of study they excel at, you are in the right place. However, the social scene is lacking, a party scene is non-existent, the people don't know how to have fun or let loose, and it is highly religious.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: DBU has an excellent reputation, but only in fields where it's known such as: pre-medical studies, Christian ministry/studies, education (1st in the nation), and musical studies. If one of those is not your area of interest this is not the school for you.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are generally either absolute asses or really outgoing. The girls are just highly religious and so they're very sheltered. I wouldn't say many are attractive until they hit being an upperclassman. The upperclassman girls are generally stunning, but the freshman....not so much.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Excellent, the campus is unbelievably safe. I have heard of very few to no problems.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I run for DBU so I can kind of speak for how things are from a perspective of student-athlete. Baseball is huge, it makes sense as they are D1. A majority of students attend the games. All of the other sports are kind of looked over, despite how successful/unsuccessful they are. The athletes' gym is nice, it's not big but it's definitely nicer than the average student's gym. However, it also has less machines than the typical gym, more/nicer free-weights but less machines; so often athletes who want more machine specific workouts don't use the athletes' gym.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You can find literally anything an any category, i.e. safe, unsafe, pricy, cheap, close, far, etc. and any combination of any of those if you look hard enough.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: DBU is stuck in between Fort Worth and Dallas. One has to drive 10-15min either way to hit food, as DBU is an isolated closed campus. I often end up in the UTA or SMU area for food.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nothing happens on campus. The craziest it will get will be people drinking in the town homes, but the groups that do this are highly exclusive. The campus is full of highly religious students who don't know how to have fun, even clean fun that doesn't involve alcohol or drugs. It's literally dead on the weekends, and a majority of people go home on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They stick to their guns when it comes to enforcing what was said about drugs, alcohol, parking, and the opposite sex in the dorms after hours; so they deserve recognition for following through with their word. However, it is absolutely obnoxious the amount of tickets given out for parking in the incorrect lot, no matter how brief of a time. It seems the security guards have nothing better to do than hand out tickets. The staff is exceptionally friendly except that they are practically of no use; they will redirect you, the caller, to another line, and that line will redirect you to another line etc. to the point that you will end up talking to the first person who picked up the phone and they will still have no answer to your question.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: A vast majority of people on campus receive CLS, which can cover a decent amount of the tuition. The early one applies the greater the chances of receiving more. Almost everyone on campus has a scholarship of some sort.

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: The caf rarely has food that is edible. Most of the time we'll walk in and opt for cereal as our meal as either we can't figure out what the food is that is being served or it just is simply gross. The utensils will always be dirty, and the cups and plates are regularly dirty as well. Once in a blue moon will there be something that one can eat multiple servings of.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The male dorms are gross. The laundry rooms are always disgusting, at least one washing machine will be broken at all times, and there are constantly guys taking other guy's laundry out of the machine and either throwing it on the floor or just leaving it wet on top of the machine. Both of the guys dorms are roach infested, and so is one of the girl's dorms. Spence is the only decent to above par dorm on campus, but it is solely meant for girls.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Im not in a Greek Life, but do not expect the real thing like a real University.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is small, but awesome. We do not have a football team, supposedly because there is not enough funds fot it and nobody wanted to donate to make one? Pathetic.

Administration: You can not do anything in this school unless it benefits the staff. Your not allowed to have guys in your dorm past visitation hours, but we all know girls sneak guys in their windows if you live in thr first floor, or like I have experienced a dorm mate have a guy over at night.

Party Scene: I have never been to a party on campus or off, but I see many girls coming back from the clubs at 3 a.m washing off at the sink, then go to chapel the next morning.

Scholarships: I took out a loan because I had to pay the remaining of my balance.. three weeks later the secretary told me I still had $5 thousand to pay. They miss inform you. Nobody knows whats going on, their communication is super weak.

Campus Food: You will end up eating the same thing over anf over again. Paying a lot of money for a very bad quality of food. Hope you have insurance, because there are possibilities of having food poisoning at least once a year.

Campus Housing: Its okay to live on campus because it has its pros: you are well focused on your studies, classes are a walking distance, you meet tons of friends, and you have free laundry service.

The cons to live here is you will expect to have brown water coming out the faucets and showers, floors are never mopped in the restrooms, you do not have your own bathroom, RA are somewhat available, the food you eat is not what you pay for. Get use to your answer being a NO around here, DBU is very stingy with their money. The president lives better than 95% of the students on campus. People are semi racist too if your a minority. You get looked at and spoken upon differently. Others will recieve jobs, minorities on the other hand mostly get off campus jobs. Financial aid here is okay. I payed $29 grand this year, I could say it was somewhat worth it.

Greek Life: Or greek life is different and set around the community more than ourselves.
