My honest review of DBU: I transferred in & regret it. I love DBU, however I am not happy here. In my two years, all my professors were outstanding! I learned so much from them and they hold a special place in my heart. Chapel services are great, the campus is beautiful, and my classes were fun. But transferring in I had a disadvantage. I came in as a junior with hopes to connect with my peers but was unable to do so. Everyone had their friend groups and because I didn't start as a freshman, it was difficult for me to make genuine friends. Most students are friendly, but not to the extent of becoming close friends. DBU is very expensive & the cost of attendance + room and board increases each year. Upperclassmen housing is nice. The dorms are decent. Campus police and security makes us feel safe. Student life events are mostly for Greek life, so it's hard getting involved on campus. Dining hall is DISGUSTING and that is not an exaggeration. I would have transferred but I owe money.

Loved this for my daughter! Beautiful campus but near city and interstate. Great financial aid. She loved her profs and the dorm. Good baseball :) Dislikes - she didnt finish because she didn't want to go into debt and we couldn't help her anymore. She only needed $2000/ semester. If they would have allowed her to live at home she probably could have done this. Also I had hoped that maybe her Department could find some kind of stipend for her to finish it out but they couldn't - they wanted to keep her though, just not bad enough. Also heard that a young lady was sexually accosted and it was hidden from the rest of the campus. I get that you don't want to cause a scare but the other young ladies at least needed to know about it so they knew to be more wary when they're out jogging in certain places. That said, light at night jogging alone is probably not a good idea ladies. Although maybe security has been increased since then this was a few years ago.
The campus is beautiful and the staff is extremely helpful. Everyone is so friendly and personable. I loved attending chapel and worshiping with everyone on campus. The reason I chose to go to DBU is because of the baseball team, chapel, and their partnership with Baylor Medical for nursing students. DBU IS HOME!
