    Depending where you are from, the stores in Waco are either more expensive or cheaper than what you are used to. If you are looking to save money, H.E.B., Family Dollar, and Dollar General are your stores and they are your friends. You can find just about anything at those places. The products are of decent quality and you certainly get more bang for your buck.

    To be honest, Baylor University is quite a hefty sum, a big reason why I decided to attend is the fact I got several scholarships that priced it lower than my perspective other colleges.

    Baylor is a private university so expect the cost to be more than a public university, however since Baylor is private, the classes and experience are well worth the price

    At Baylor you will definitely receive a quality education and have many great times as a student and even as an alumnus. Our degrees are looking better and better as people begin to realize what genuinely good programs we have here. Not once since I have been here have I regretted deciding to come here.

    Baylor University is more than just about receiving an education or college degree. It is about forming relationships and discovering who you are as a student. This discovery is explored through students, professors, and participation in organizations and events. The value of Baylor is there; it is simply up to the student to actually seize opportunities presented to them. Otherwise, the student will simply attend classes and only receive an education rather than an experience.
