I may not know too much about DBU but from what I know, students will prosper after graduating from this school. The school offers many job opportunities which helps the students experience real life jobs. The student career prospects seem very secure and leading to advancement. The value of a degree from this school is very beneficial because students learn quickly and excel in their subjects. The alumni at DBU are able to share great testimonies which I believe will change the lives of others who are experiencing similar hardships. The employers are very lenient when it comes to recruiting. The employers are always open to new recruitment. The quality of the career center and services are great! The staff is so helpful, not only with careers, but also supportive with signing up for classes. I am so blessed to have been able to get accepted into this school.

Dallas Baptist University has a very close-knit community of students and faculty. The academic programs, particularly Business and Music, are thriving. Each discipline has been carefully provided with passionate and gifted professors who are both interested in the students' academic and personal lives. They genuinely care about their classes: many actually take the time to personally meet each student, whether grades are concerned or not. The University Honors Program, while small, is intellectually challenging, spiritually encouraging, and, much like the other social/academic programs there, allows for students with similar interests and pursuits to connect in an instructive, constructive environment. Social life on campus is vibrant: several Greek Life organizations are flourishing, and there is a plethora of student-led organizations to join, covering a range of interests such as music, sports, devotionals, or volunteer work. It is not difficult for new students to find a group of people to connect with. All in all, the university is very like a family because the campus and classes are so small. If you are looking for a warm and welcoming community environment that also is serious about academics, you should definitely consider this one!

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.
