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.

3 Reasons Why DBU is NOT For You.


1)
DBU is not for you if you like to
drink & party all the time. There are strict rules against alcohol on campus, which is bad for some and great for others.


2)
You're not serious about your faith.
DBU is very serious about Christianity.
I have friends who went to TCU & SMU, both are not
Christ-centered in overall campus environment.
DBU integrates Christianity into almost every aspect
of the univ.

For EX: Professors begin class with prayer, most of staff is very helpful
in guiding you to grow in your faith. Chapel is required for all students.


3)
You like big classes you can miss.
DBU is famous for small class sizes
are very personal. You dont get to be late without anyone noticing.
Class attendance = mandatory but you dont get marked up for being late
(Cough..UNT..cough)


BUT...

If you're serious about ur faith and growing to be the best person you can be physically, mentally and spiritually
DBU would be a perfect school for you!
My Experience with Dallas Baptist so far has been exceptional, I am going to attend the University in the fall to study and play soccer and I'm super excited! The campus is gorgeous with first class facilities, all the coaches that I've met are great as well as the professors and the all around feeling I get when I'm on campus is amazing. The students there have been super helpful to me with any questions I've had so far and seem like great people that I can't wait to be around for the next four years. All in all Dallas Baptist University is a lovely place with a great campus and even better people and I'm super excited I picked them to be the place I spend the next four years at.
