If you're looking for a college to party at then ETBU is not for you. If you've been sheltered for most of your life then it may be the college for you. Honestly, if I could do it over again I would not have chose ETBU for many reasons. One of the main reasons is that they don't tell you a lot of things until you're there, which is too late. They have fees for almost everything... For example: not turning in a book on time, not putting the trash in the dumpster (even if it's full), missing a meeting, etc.
If you are struggling finacially then I would advise against going to ETBU. The full meal plan is $2,000+ and most days it's nasty. If you don't get enough scholarships/loans you will be on a monthly payment plan and you will not be able to charge books to your account (they don't tell you that) so you will have to buy them out of pocket (NEVER buy them from the bookstore, use Chegg or some other online store because you will waste money). Also, if you want to go to a college in a fun city, ETBU is not your place. Everyone usually leaves on the weekend to go to Longview or Shreveport to do something fun. In my opinion, if you want to have easy classes and professors then go to ETBU. I'm majoring in Psychology and I swear I study the night before and still make As on my exams. If you want a challenge, then maybe ETBU is not for you (unless you're a nursing major). Another thing, always make sure that you know what classes you need to take because you do not want to be a "Super Senior" (being there over four years). A lot of people leave ETBU after the first semester of their Freshmen year. ETBU is too high in my opinion. It's $30000+ and the only class that I've learned something in is my intro Psychology class.When it comes to choosing a college ALWAYS ask real students because they will tell you things the recruiters don't. Lastly, this was my experience at ETBU, no need to get mad at me for my opinion.

The entire program is nothing but a money grab. Cafeteria, books, lodging, parking fees. The town is a horrible place to live and is dangerous for a college student. They pretend to be a caring Baptist school, but all they care about is milking you for the money. Most of my friends left there with huge student loans and there is no alumni support upon graduation. Do not waste your time or investment. Go to any other school. The degree is not respected in the workplace. The whole Christian environment image is a joke. Because of the strict on campus policy, the students party like rock stars off campus and literally hide as to not be caught.

Of course you go to college to learn how to be an adult, work, and learn to provide. Well here its all about spending money to take mission trips, spending money for books, spending money for tuition... you get the picture. its basically 4 more years of high school. If you stay that long most people leave. Half your class wont make it to 2nd semester. almost everything they say is a lie. look bottom line is this school is full of fake contradicting judgmental Christians Tue, 16 Apr 2013 02:28:53 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/TX/ETBU_comments.html StudentsReview: Negative Review about ETBU for Mathhttp://www.studentsreview.com/TX/ETBU_comments.html For a "Christian" college, the staff lied at the initial meeting about services.

They do not provide any type of mentoring process so don't believe that lie. They only over some courses every two years so if you get behind at all you have to add another 2 years and $20,000 to your college plan. It is very expensive and no one will help you apply for anything but the basic grants or scholarships. If you are not going into the ministry or a male playing sports don't expect help after your freshman year. The school for such a small school does not care about the whole individual. They are very departmentalized and only tend to their own specific subject area. Most of the faculty is not accessible except a few days a month for conferences because they are part time professors and this is not their full time job.
