    Baylor is amazing! Caring atmosphere: for one another, for strangers but are fellow students. Overall, great teachers, great career opportunities open to you. Knowledge of life & what to do next, how to achieve, all you have to do is ask a professor. Great health & counseling center, & Rec is awesome It's everything I could ever wanted in a school. The teachers are amazing and always willing to help. Super personable and small class sizes. Waco is also a hidden gem. I 100% recommend Baylor to anyone considering it. You won't regret it.

    BEST DECISION I'VE EVER MADE! Definitely worth every penny! I don't, but I worked hard to build my social circle and it pays off to put effort into something like that.

    Baylor is the best decision I have ever made. I am not very religious (don't regularly attend church) but am Christian. There are great people here who make me feel as though I want to be a better Christian and others who make me feel welcome when I'm not really religious. The school has amazing academics and resources for internships, careers,etc. I'm happy with my choice! :) ...Continue reading

    Baylor is a great campus between the variety and rigor of the academics, the family-community ties and support, and the booming athletic organizations (particularly the new shiney stadium), it's a great school to be a part of!

    Baylor is a great place if you're willing to put in the effort to meet people. I'm not going to fan-boy-girl like the rest of these people. Realize that a lot of Baylor students come from a Baptist family of them. The religions overtones of freshman year are insufferable (as are some of the people) but generally the professors are very helpful. Baylor is a top 2nd rate school, in a lame town, and par dorms. Joining a fraternity has really made my Baylor experience amazing. ...Continue reading

    Absolutely loved Baylor! Baylor bears span the globe and are awesome about helping each other with opportunities. The library is really helpful, especially Crouch for music majors. Campus is beautiful. Internet is unreliable sometimes, but you can get a signal anywhere on campus. The food is vey hit or miss, either great, or sketchy. Going to Baylor might not fit the college mold, but you can have a great time if you connect with a student organization. Greek life is amazing and engaging. Professors really care about students and staff wants students to succeed. ...Continue reading

    really great environment and beautiful campus Besides, who needs a roadtrip when you have the friendliest fun classmates in the Whole Lone Star State? Baylor is known for being so nice - it is easy to make great lifelong friends and get a fabulous education. The dorms are fine, nothing special. The football field is about 2 miles off campus, which is no problem if you know people with cars. Most of the classrooms are very up to date, with the science building being brand new and very nice.
