Baylor University Reviews
The International Studies program at Baylor is perfect for students who have various interests. It allows you to choose a subject focus and a work area focus; I chose to study the politics of western Europe. But you could also study language, history, art, etc. of anywhere in the world. You can tailor this degree to be exactly what you would like, and there is also flexibility to change your path as you go. The one major drawback to Baylor is a lack of diversity; not only does it lack diversity of race and religion (religion, understandably), but also lacks students who represent all socioeconomic backgrounds and regions of the country and world. As a student coming from out of state, I felt woefully out of place for a long time. The quality of education I received at Baylor was top-notch. There were many opportunities to explore subjects in depth, and professors to help you along the way. I was challenged, but not left to go it alone. I realized that I was so much more able that I had first thought. Being at Baylor stretched me and made me a better student and a better human overall.
Baylor University was a place that I thrived academically, emotionally/mentally, socially, and spiritually. It changed my life. I made so many amazing friends and still keep in touch with 1/3 of my professors today. I am unbelievably grateful and blessed for such an amazing time in my life to explore, learn, grow, and experience college at this institution. I have been impacted by my professors and changed by all the amazing support I had there. I miss Baylor so much that I visited three times this year. Baylor helped integrate me into campus life, participate in all the traditions, and encouraged me to become a better person. I am forever a proud alum and am extremely grateful!
My experience at Baylor was great from the very beginning. Student Life does a great job of providing you opportunities to make connections. I had the opportunity to be involved in many different activities and make lasting relationships. Studying Political science was great. The faculty are passionate about their content matter and make it engaging. I only took one course taught by a graduate student and never had a Political Science course with more than 25 students.
Baylor's education program is extremely thorough. You are placed in classrooms your first year, working with students in Central Texas. The program also is heavily research-driven. Unlike many schools, where pedagogy and teaching strategies are an afterthought, Baylor is constantly working to find strategies that are backed by science. If you want to specialize in areas like occupational therapy, speech pathology, or learning disorders, Baylor is doing cutting edge research in these areas.
It's a great school and it took me places I could only dream of and it can do the same for you.
Baylor is an institution that is unwaveringly dedicated to the academic wellbeing of its students, particularly in regards to those studying STEM-related fields. In many cases, professors are more than willing to engage undergraduates in their personal research, provided students are willing to approach them in-person and show initiative through coursework. Some of the most meaningful relationships I made at Baylor were with professors outside my field of study, so do not fear deviating from a logical "path" of coursework.
I love Baylor and if I need to ever further my education, I hope I can attend again. It is challenging but the feeling of pride when you receive your diploma is worth it
Baylor University is an incredible university. I had many wonderful experiences there and those experiences shaped who I am today. Baylor's Honors College programs are academically rigorous, but professors will share their vast knowledge with you, speak to you on a personal level, and help you form intelligent opinions on various issues. Professors are friendly, knowledgable, and glad to share their vast knowledge with students. Baylor gives you a sense of community and you truly feel at home there. It's a place where you can grow intellectually and personally. I cannot recommend Baylor enough to those who are interested in applying or attending. Sic 'em!
I loved Baylor. Had a big university feel (Division 1 sports, greek life, etc) but small school component, too. Small classes, smaller freshman class.
Close knit community. Intelligent people. I can not describe how blessed I was to attend this school. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
