I attend the WBU campus in San Antonio.BrightSociology
I attend the WBU campus in San Antonio. Mostly military people are enrolled at this campus. Financial Aid Dept. finds it a burden to deal with civillian students who apply for the traditional student loans and grants. The student aid is slow, and when you check on your aid status the entire staff finds it annoying to deal with. You may be a junior, but receiving the same funds as if you were classified as a sophmore. I wouldn't go to this college if you're a student who depends on financial aid, because you will not get it until the 4th or 6th week into the semester. Go somewhere else.

Well I was a person looking for aQuite BrightCriminal
Well I was a person looking for a good undergraduate degree that was flexible and had a good online program. I work Full Time in public safety and have rotating shifts so i am unable to really dedicate a lot of time to school. I spoke with the main person down in the Rio Grande Valley in charge of WBU. We had set a time to meet at STC to talk about the program and what i can expect and do to get the ball rolling. I showed up at the time we were supposed to meet. after 30 minutes I called the guy and he didnt answer. I left a message and it has been 2 weeks now. I still have not received a call explaining why i was stood up at the meeting. This is supposed to be a christian organization? what a joke! They lost a potential student that day. I will not enroll at WBU. First impressions are everything. I will be spending my money elsewhere.

If you are wanting a party school, DOQuite BrightReligion/Religious
If you are wanting a party school, DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT come to Wayland!!!!!!!!!!! There are NO parties AT ALL!!! If you want to party, and you do decide to go to Wayland, then you will need to party in Lubbock, which is about 50 miles away or Amarillo, which is about 75 miles away. Texas Tech and Lubbock are always having parties so you would need to go there. If you are looking for a school where EVERY student knows pretty much EVERYBODY, where faculty will allow you into their homes for help, where a solid CHRISTIAN education is the PRIMARY focus, then this is the school for you....
