2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not much goes down at DBU past 9 PM

3 College Senior

Technology: Computer labs are great. However wifi is a continuous problem- shuts down/ is extremely slow often

3 College Senior

Administration: As a Christian university, of course it is strict, most students hold themselves to even higher moral standards. However, the administration does tend to micromanage a little too much, especially if you a scholarship holder or student worker.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Yes, DBU is expensive, but they offer SO many scholarships. Half of my tuition is covered by DBU scholarships alone. Also they have a full-time scholarship coordinator that is actually really fantastic.

4 College Senior

Academics: Academics are truly either a hit or a miss here. Fantastic school for music and ministry; probably wouldn't come here for scientific or technical degrees.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: DBU is very strict on drug and alcohol issues. For example, even students of age are not allowed to have alcohol in their on-campus housing

3 College Senior

Diversity: DBU has a very homogeneous population, especially in political and religious beliefs, but as annoying as it is, that's typical in Baptist schools in general; a particular niche of people gravitate towards them.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: It's not your typical greek-life; its more like a Christian community group. But its growing quickly within the past few year.

4 College Senior

Weather: Lots of sunshine; great weather. But specifically with DBU, how its located on top of a hill, it strangely is super windy. Ladies, don't wear flowy skirts (freshman mistake)

1 College Senior

Transportation: Well, its Dallas, you shouldn't expect to have good public transportation options. You honestly will need a car to survive.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There has been some theft (i.e. bikes, cars broken into, laptops in the library), but not more average. Typically its a result of students not taking precautionary actions (they leave their laptops out, don't lock up their bikes, etc.) Besides that, the presence of security is VERY strong, we make fun of how excessive it seems sometimes, but honestly, we all feel safer because them.

3 College Senior

Local Area: Though it is Dallas Baptist University, DBU is only technically in Dallas, but really we say its in Grand Prairie, a suburb of Dallas. So if your looking to be surrounded by a hopping city life, go to SMU. If you want a campus that is just a drive away from the city but is more quiet and safe, go to DBU

3 College Senior

Majors: Specifically within business, there isn't enough variety of degrees. Very basic coverage.

3 College Senior

Majors: I was able to find a good post-grad job before graduation, but because of my job experience through my internships and my on-campus job, not because of my degree. Found out my place of employment doesn't even look at DBU for recruiting despite it being in the Metroplex.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There is always something to do

5 College Sophomore

Academics: Great professors overall. I highly recommend the Kinesiology department teachers and leadership. They really care about their students.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Besides a few who drink alcohol, there is not a big drug problem at DBU.

4 College Sophomore

Local Area: Dallas and Fort Worth are both very close by for tons of entertainment and night life.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: If you want to drive 20 minutes or more, you have tons of options, but the options within 10 minutes are very few.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Overall the weather is usually very good, however, it is super windy up on the hill. The winter time can be a hassle if it snows/ice due to the hill and difficulty on the roads.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Computer access and technology is good at DBU.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: DBU has a top Baseball Team!

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Cowboys is a great place to go dancing!

3 College Junior

Parking: When you are off campus it is hard to fin parking spots

Campus Food: When it comes to dining it is okay because the prices and the variety they are not really great.
