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.
Dallas Baptist is an amazing college. The campus is beautiful. They have awesome events, like the tree lighting in December on campus. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I love the small classroom sizes, and online classes. The professors are easy to access and very helpful. The only thing I would like to see is more diversity. The food is amazing the have chick-fil-a, moo-yah burger, starbucks, and a cafe on campus. I especially love the Barnes N Noble book store on campus. I always feel safe on campus, I go to evening classes so the campus is well lit. DBU seems to be its own little community, I have been to to other colleges and DBU is my favorite thus far.
