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!
Overall, great school! Have had a blast during my time here. Professors and staff challenge you in knowledge and in spirit. I was really able to grow spiritually this past year with the guidance of my professors and friends I met. It is easy to get connected if you are willing to put in the energy and go to events.
