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!

ETBU was a fantastic school to go to. It is not a party school, nor is it one for students to go crazy at once they leave their homes. They truly stick to their name-East Texas BAPTIST University. They are not as strict as they used to be, but they do enforce good morals. There are places to eat around town and a Walmart about 2 miles from the school.

The academics are top-notch. I felt that I went into a teaching job fully prepared for what was ahead. The professors truly care about their students and have kept in contact with me since graduation.

Overall, ETBU was a great experience and I will continue to recommend it to anyone who asks!
East Texas Baptist University is a diverse and well rounded institution, dedicated to academics, leadership, and faith. The entire student body and professional staff share a strong spiritual connection and place a strong emphasis on faith! Everyone is family here.
