Houston Baptist University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
Houston Baptist University is a small, private Baptist institution that has a core mission of preparing students for a servant lifestyle. The smaller size allows for 1 on 1 instruction and a personalized approach to teaching. The faculty invest in the lives of their students, both in the classroom and outside of it, and there is a multitude of communities for people to involve themselves in whether it be athletics or greek life. The Kinesiology department is a tight-knit group of students and faculty alike.
Attending Houston Baptist University for a Bachelor's degree in Biology had its pros and cons. The science department there all had the expertise and knowledge that was necessary to teach the material, and for students to understand and learn to the best of their ability. Some courses were certainly more rigorous than others, so the academic merit of the university is slightly above average. However, the overall university outside of the science and math department can be quite polarizing to some students since it is a Christian liberal arts university. While this does not cross over or influence science education (as that would be out of curriculum ) it can be a turn off for some students.
Houston Baptist was a wonderful choice because of it's community-feel and wonderful professors. Everyone knows everyone, making it feel like a home away from home. But with friends instead of family.
