Student & Graduate Reviews (4)

1 out of 5
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

First off I decided to not swear in this review but this is how much stress that this school has caused for me. ANY future students Who are considering this school PLEASE DON'T BOTHER, RUN!!!! this school is full of disappointments. The staff does not know anything be prepared to be transferred to everyone and still nothing resolved also to mention racism AARON S. at careers and calling is definitely a racist he provided me with jobs from housekeeping to basically not earning anything I believe because of my race I am a (BLACK EDUACATED WOMAN) who has one degree already and felt that he belittle me. Financial aid workers need training all over again the black lady at the front desk in admissions with the short black wig is unprofessional and rude as ever. This school is overrated and over priced I decided to drop all of my classes why pay 2,000 per class at a unprofessional supposedly private school when I could get better help and be more comfortable at a great public and larger University Dr. Ferrel tried his best to make a sale at hbu but after meeting with him I was not convinced I grew even more frustrated Kathy that's in the same department as Ferrel is not the best secretary her information was mostly wrong. In all honesty this is the issues that I encountered with HBU I'm emotionally and mentally drained I'm now behind a few classes thanks to HBU for misleading me and having me wait til the semester start to meet with me which had me late to transfer to a different university.

Degree: Kinesiology and Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2016

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.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Business, Management, Marketing, and Related Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

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.
