a current student here
For me, Baylor is a huge disappointment. I bought into all the hype, the name, the tour, the beauty of the campus. It's really nothing like I thought it would be. I find myself spending so much time huddled in the library because I have to escape the atmosphere. I am non-religious metal head, musician. I have yet to make any real friendships here. No one is like me here. All the guys are the classic frat boys. Provided, everyone here is exceptionally nice, but they just aren't like me. No one here can converse with me about music. Sports is everything to most people here. My advice to prospective students is just to be sure what the atmosphere and people are like at the school you want to go to. I didn't and now here I am stressing out because I want to go to another school. Truly, this place is nice, but my girlfriend and I are not happy here. Both of us constantly feel judged and hated despite the occasional smiles.
