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 an incredible university with many opportunities for growth and development available to those who actively seek them out. Although Waco is not a busy and bustling city like that from which I came, it has something to offer any student who seeks new and exciting small-town experiences. Baylor's community of professors, students, and faculty is a worthy one in which to invest your heart and years of undergraduate study.

    Baylor University is a fantastic educational institution for everyone - Christians and non-Christians alike! Every staff member is dedicated to making Baylor feel like a home away from home by providing a unique and intentional education approach that puts a focus on community and academic excellence. Baylor offers an incredible amount of services and activities for students to involve themselves with, and truly seeks to make a leader out of all students who attend.

    The campus and faculty seem incredibly supporting, and the students I was able to talk to outside of the official tour were kind, supportive, and fully willing to help me with any questions or concerns I had. Wonderful place, and I'm glad to be one soon.

    Awesome, close knit, and caring university. I do not feel like a number. Professors are very approachable, nice, and invested in their students. There are lots of activities on/off campus.

    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.
