East Texas Baptist University Reviews
It is exactly what I expected it to be- challenging and good. The faculty is overall very kind and have been extremely helpful. I have made many wonderful life-long friends among my peers. If you are even on the fence, just come and visit! The town can honestly be kinda sketch, but if you look you can always find the good things, and there are plenty to be had. The people here are so precious!
I enjoyed my time at ETBU. I was able to achieve a degree in a timely manor and was completely prepared for the work force after graduation. Athletics is a huge part of the student life at ETBU (was an athlete) and there is always an event to attend on the weekends. If its a hockey game, baseball, concert, or CONEXUS there is always something to do! ETBU is a family and those connections can be found even after graduation. I had a great experience as a student and love how much the campus has continued to grow! They even have full size beds in the dorms! Crazy!
East Texas Baptist University makes an effort to instill and nurture a love for Christ in each of their students. They make chapel fun and exciting, they provide bible study opportunities, and encourage students to get involved in local churches. Having faculty and staff that love the Lord is an integral part of who they are as an institution. Each professor is passionate about what they teach and wants every student to learn as much as they can. They do their very best to show each student how they can honor God in whatever they are studying. No matter what environment you’re in on campus the people around you are there to be a light for Christ. They are there to serve the Lord and others.
