Student Reviews

If I could go back in time, I'd choose Baylor every time.
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really like the passion of the professors about their area of focus and that the atmosphere was so inviting and welcoming. What can be improved is more inclusion in Waco campus activities and promotions of those who are still part of Baylor but in different cities for their program.
