    As the purpose of any university is to distribute knowledge and provide life skills to students, so too does Baylor University pride itself on these aspects. To be successful in Baylor you must have friends; they help you up when you are down, provide laughter, life experiences, memories, and overall, keep you sane in a time where your schedule is insane. Although a simple studying habit that has been said countless times throughout your life by teachers and instructors, do not cram! I cannot stress this enough. Every day, you must dedicate at the minimum 3 hours of studying to really perform well in class. Furthermore, building relationships with your professors is key to gaining opportunities and showing that you truly appreciate their work. The dreaded Freshman 15 is a real thing at Baylor. With an abundance of food and nobody telling you what you can and can't eat as was done in high school, it is your responsibility to take care of your body; this includes eating right and working out. Be open-minded. Your beliefs may not be in accordance with other studentâ??s beliefs. Many people come from different religious backgrounds, states, heritages, and upbringings. Although Baylor is a private Christian University, not everybody is Christian nor should be expected to be one. I find that meeting people who are different from me will provide the experience necessary to deal with people of different backgrounds in my future career. Overall, college can be an amazing experience for anybody but only if you apply yourself and participate.

    Students should schedule a tour with the visitor center, so they can see all of the wonderful things that Baylor University has to offer. I also recommend checking the intended major, for the program that allows students to earn their Masters in five years instead of six.

    Be prepared for the Religious emphasis, I love that aspect but many students come to this school not realizing how enforced it is. Also Waco the town is awful, Austin is an hour south and DFW two hours North, but if you are looking for a fun college town Waco isn't it.
