My older brother went to this school andQuite BrightOther
My older brother went to this school and in the honors college. I am in the honors college. Everything has become awful and nasty since then, and this is not Covid causing this. Start with advising, they won't allow freshmen to have the classes they requested. It is a policy now it turns out. I got the classes but not the sections even though the sections are still open. I had wanted to have a couple professors my older brother had and recommended. I was not given a single section I asked for. This is a bizarre policy. They blame Covid for this. Then to add to it, the housing process is awful. They put you through a series of events for housing. But these events are gruesome. In the end, after putting you through these events, where their website does not even work properly to go through these events, they do not have enough space available where you were assigned. They are now putting freshmen off campus in apartments. But the freshmen still have to pay for food service. And food service is a complete fiasco. You are not allowed to eat anywhere inside on campus. You can eat outside, in torrential rains, heavy winds, high heat, and must stay 6 feet from everyone else, or, you can take the bus back to the off campus apartment and eat there. If you are one of the lucky ones to have a dorm on campus, you can eat in your room. They have no plans in place yet for sanitation in the rooms. You are not allowed to eat in the public indoor areas on campus. Other than sports, there are no activities for fall, but you still have to pay the activity fees for the residence halls. I am not sure how that is going to work with being off campus.

I am a person who hated high schoolAverageNursing
I am a person who hated high school and was super excited to be in the real world. Well Baylor is basically high school all over again. The school is very clicky and everyone is very closed minded. Also, the immaturity level is unreal. I never realized how many people did not understand that college isn't about fun and games. I honestly wish I went to a different college. It feels like I am drowning from all of the religion I am being force fed. DO NOT GO HERE.

I worked very hard and studied hard andBrightFinance
I worked very hard and studied hard and the results were not fantastic, but more like average. Just when you think you know the material, you get tricked on the tests.The undergrad was run more like a prison with the staff as prison guards. I actually did one of my buddies homework for him once as he could not do it he said. Fellow students were always helpful and polite. The students were a great asset. The faculty was not. The degree has not helped me in the real world to get a good job. I had to pay to get a job out of college.
