Most Helpful Review for Baylor University

Perhaps my favorite thing about Baylor is the opportunity I have had as an honor student to have the interdisciplinary major called University Scholars. If you have high enough SAT's and enough AP classes and a good application essay, you can be excused from most undergrad required classes such as required English and Science classes. This means even as a Freshman you can begin your major classes. It also makes it easier to spend a semester doing an internship or to have multiple concentrations instead of a single major. That's not to mention that Baylor has small classes with involved teachers....

    Baylor is of course well known for its academic standards- it sets a high bar of excellence across multiple fields. However, even better is the sense of community- everyone is so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. From professors to students to staff, Baylor has a strong sense of community I didn't experience anywhere else.

    Baylor is a friendly, Christian atmosphere that has always been welcoming to me and all of my friends. The academics are incredible and the professors are friendly and understanding in most cases. While the university has had some issues over the past year, they are getting fixed and the university's integrity and mission remains the same; I have always felt safe and supported here.

    Waco has become my new home. Baylor is the perfect University for students who want to receive quality education and make genuine friendships in a welcoming, Christian environment. Baylor has big name Athletics, but small class sizes- perfect for engaged learning.

    An amazing school with great academics and a wonderful social environment. Baylor, with its small classes, allows for the ultimate success of all of its students. Along with academics, Baylor is a Christian school unapologetic of its faith and openly practices it for all to see and worship!
