SBU is certainly not for everyone.Quite BrightOther
SBU is certainly not for everyone. It is a small, Christian university in a small town. If you're not a Christian and not willing to put forth some effort to be a part of campus life and enjoy yourself-you will hate the school. But if you are a Christian, if you make an effort to get to know the people around you, you will love this school. The people at SBU are top quality and super friendly, and the profs treat you well usually. Being a small school there are a lot of things students can complain about (food, facilities, social life, etc.) but at the end of the day I think there is more positive at SBU than negative. You get out what you put in.

Question
Sbu is the most hypocritical school that IQuite BrightOther
Sbu is the most hypocritical school that I have had the displeasure of attending. The time I have been at sbu I feel like has been a complete waste of time. I have not met a single person that isn't a complete hypocrite. The things that sbu doesn't know is ridiculous. They can't seem to see what is happening in front of their faces, meaning the party's that they seem to just let happen. The chapel is a joke. Which is borderline cult brainwashing. I will never step foot on sbu campus.

Question
Do not attend Southwest Baptist University if youBrightEnglish
Do not attend Southwest Baptist University if you wish to broaden your mind. Most of the professors perpetuate their Baptist views; it oozes out of them in lecture. In your Bible classes, you will most likely endure the preaching of conservative fundamentals. Do not expect extreme academic rigor if you are not a Biblical Studies major. Expect to find the student body likeminded and hostile to any opinion that conflicts with their conservative view of Christianity and politics.
