    I could not have a picked a better school to instruct me in singing. My instructor truly knows what he is doing and knows how to mold his students so they can be incredibly unique musicians.

    I love being at Baylor. The first thing you recognize as soon as you get here is how warm and welcoming the people are. EVERYONE IS FRIENDLY! The people are so friendly that it gets annoying after awhile but it makes it that much easier to make friends. Also, there's always some type of event happening at Baylor whether it's a food fight event at the university park or the famous Day of the Bear Parade, Baylor is going to give you the time of your life! Behind all the excitement, there is always time to study. There are going to be some dead weekends where there is nothing to do but study and those types of weekends are needed. All in all, if your looking for a school that will bombard you with good times but at the same time keep you and your studies in check, Baylor is the school for you.

    I am an international student from Asia and my initial doubts of whether I would fit in at Baylor were dispelled as soon as I arrived. The community was very welcoming and hospitable, and were genuinely interested in getting to know you. I too became more sociable and friendly as a result of this and I am always eager to meet and welcome new students. The campus is beautiful with great weather all year round. The city of Waco is small enough to keep you occupied but not large enough to where you find yourself going out on every school night. Besides, there are plenty of on campus events and activities to participate in. There is a broad selection of clubs, organizations, and sports to fit anyone's interests. The Greek Life at Baylor is quite vibrant and active with many events hosted each week. You meet a lot of new people from attending these events and becoming involved, and pretty soon you will see a lot of familiar faces on your way to class. There are a number of sporting events that fans can attend and usually the whole school rallies at the home games to support the players and show our school spirit. Baylor sports teams are among the top teams of the nation. Our women's basketball team is ranked number one while the men's basketball team is ranked sixth. Also, the 2011 winner of the Heisman trophy is Baylor's very own Robert Griffin III ! In spite of all of this, the atmosphere at Baylor is also very study friendly and academically oriented so there is no fear of being absorbed and completely distracted by the social aspect of college. Tip: Go visit the marina and take a kayak out to the lake.(The most relaxing thing ever)
