There is lots of running around, with outNot so brightNursing
There is lots of running around, with out communication. that is the biggest problem. you would think that after about 6 years of doing the nursing program they would have it down to a science, but they don't they still don't have the general curriculum down. they are always changing things up every semester is very different then the last. 8 students were forced to withdraw from the school because they didn't pass a math test, which they were only given three chances to pass. you are required to do this every semester. so you could be forced to withdraw if you fail even if you are in the last semester. you can only fail one class if you do you must reapply to the program to see if you can reenter. if you fail again then you are dropped from the program and can never reenter. you have to really desperate if you decide to go to the nursing program at Wayland. monitor their nursing accreditation they are on probation due to low pass rates

Wayland is not just open to those ofQuite BrightEnglish
Wayland is not just open to those of Baptist denomination. The atmosphere is centered around Scripture, but there are hundreds of students who attend because of athletics, or academics, or many other non-religious reasons. I don't believe there is a school around with a faculty or staff that cares more for their students. My professors are very patient and understanding. They are entirely fair, and have shown compassion in times when I was unable to turn in an assignment due to family or personal issues. Tutoring is readily available, and I found that professors are more than willing to meet privately to discuss a paper or test.

Plainview isn't the most exciting place to live, but the student body has creative ways of working around the stillness of the town.

The campus isn't "gorgeous", but they are working on the buildings. Plans are in the works for new buildings (including a new Religion building), more landscaping, and they've been adding sculptures and artwork to the campus.

They just built a new recreation center, and it is a great place to hang out or grab a healthy snack.

I cannot sing enough praises of the School of Music or the School of Religion. Both are absolutely excellent. The professors are willing to bend over backwards for their students. The mission trips the Religion department takes are wonderful opportunities for travel. The School of Music is going to Germany this year. They've been to China, Russia, Spain, etc.Wayland is continually expanding and adding more majors (new majors are expected to be added in the fall of 2011, including a new degree in Graphic Design). They're even starting their football program again this fall! Some schools get stuck in their ways, and stop growing. After more than 100 years since Wayland opened its doors on the south plains, they're still adding masters degrees, majors, new departments, new buildings, new schools, and appealing to a wider array of students. I would highly recommend Wayland to anyone.

Wayland is an okay school, but unless youQuite BrightPsychology
Wayland is an okay school, but unless you are into experiencing the high school atmosphere for a second time (on steroids), DO NOT COME HERE! You have been warned. I plan to graduate as quickly as possible and get the hell out of here. School "policies" are shoved down your throat. My personal favorite policy is that at age 21 you can not drink. Another thing is, if you at all value your privacy and also your sanity, do not live on any wayland campus. The campuses are small and any new person is a new target. Just a warning.
