4 College Freshman

Diversity: When it comes to religion and economic background there is not very much diversity, but we have many ethnicities represented.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Taylor University requires that all students sign the Life Together Covenant. In this contract students agree to abstain from drugs and alcohol. Of course, like anything, if you look hard enough you can find it, but it is very difficult to engage in these activities.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Although I have yet to attend Taylor University, I have been pleased thus far with the admissions experience. As I began to look into Taylor I saw myself thriving on the campus. I knew that Taylor was the right school for me once I stepped foot on campus. Everyone from the admissions counselors to the tour guides were nothing but kind to me and my family. The admissions counselors went out of their way to make everything go smoothly. I am beyond excited to attend Taylor University next fall.

4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's great, but it's expensive!

3 College Junior

Athletics: There aren't many people who support an athletic team besides other athletic teams. "Silent Night" is the only time the basketball gym is filled.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Beautiful campus, high-quality faculty and staff, excellent community, and very intentional about integrating faith and learning.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: very safe, very clean, very healthy

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors have a personal relationship with their students and make an effort to be not just your professor but also your friend. They care about your life and faith as much if not more than they care about the content they teach.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I think our campus police are very helpful. They even helped me when my car got stuck in the snow.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've grown as a student and as a person here at Taylor, and they do a great job of encouraging students to interact with faculty members outside of class.

Campus Housing: Socially, residence life at Taylor can be really wonderful, if a tad overwhelming at times. I have nothing but good things to say about the residence hall directors, who do a wonderful job of promoting community.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have really grown as a person while I've been at Taylor, and though there are things about the school I don't love, I think the faculty have really amazed me with their kindness and genuine concern for the intellectual and spiritual growth of their students.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus. I feel like the campus police are there to help me when I am in need. The closest thing to criminality that I've seen so far is people borrowing bikes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are very caring and knowledgeable overall, which is all I can ask for on that part. I'm not completely sure about all the gen eds we're required to take, but a couple have been useful. Class sizes are small for my major, which I like, however there are a few lecture halls for gen eds that I'm not the fondest of.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm only a freshman but so far I have seen plenty of opportunities. The staff is very encouraging and helpful in this process.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I just moved to Bergwall from Gerig. It depends on what you value more. I appreciate the space I have now. And it is connected to the DC and every room has its own bathroom. Gerig was fine while I lived there but space wise, it could feel very cramped. However the community was better there. I still hang out with my friends there so I'm not always bothered by the lack of social life on my floor. Plus I am good friends with my roommate and a couple girls down the hall.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: My school is very original. We get excited at football games mostly, but there is a special tradition called Silent Night. This happens every December. It is a basketball game where you have to be quiet until our team scores the 10th point. The crowd roars at this point, and it is nearly deafening. Also, you get to dress up in really crazy costumes. It is actually really fun.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My college is great. I appreciate the integration of faith and learning because I am a nondenominational Christian. I appreciate that my professors truly care about me as a person and about how I am doing in their classes. The best thing about my University is the connections. All professors are pretty experienced in their fields and have contacts in their fields as well. Just in the first semester and a half I've met several CEOs in companies nearby, people in my desired industry (film), and others in different fields as well.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

A prominent religious figure—Jesus of Nazareth—once asked "what good it does a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul?" Others have asked, in despair, "what use is there for success when there's no one to share it with?" Taylor University firmly believes that there's no point to excellence without community, and it is that belief which drives everything that happens on campus. From football games to ice cream socials to chapels to Pick-a-Dates to wing retreats to Airband to small group Bible studies, Taylor students are surrounded by a community fueled by a genuine desire to love God by loving people. Students have been known to compare Taylor to having an extended family—2,000 members strong—with all the good and bad implied in the term.

Taylor University's core mission is to produce "whole" persons who think creatively and logically, who are prepared to serve Christ all over the globe, and who are imbued with an inescapable desire to love others as God loves them. It's not coincidental that one of the first general education requirements is a course that emphasizes the critical importance of seeing fellow human beings as intrinsically valuable, nor is it random that students are encouraged to strive for their potential. People enter Taylor as wide-eyed learners and leave as inspired servant-leaders. But, again, Taylor's heartbeat is "intentional community": relationships built for the purpose of loving each other in Christ, friendships that outlast a four-year plan. No, Taylor's facilities aren't state-of-the-art; the food isn't gourmet, and the athletic teams haven't won national championships. That isn't the point. The point is—the point has always been—love. And that will be the point for generations of Taylor Trojans to come.
