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!
Review East Texas Baptist University
My experience from visiting East Texas Baptist University was simply amazing. I started off really enjoying the Chapel Service. Everyone there has such an amazing spirit and is so kind. After the Service, I was able to go into a class that matched up with the major we want. I was in a Chemical Concepts class. The professors are all very nice and such great teachers. I really enjoy how the professors actually take the time to explain what you may have trouble on. It is also very beneficial that the classes are small. After the class, I got to see how the cafeteria was like. Their buffet was very delicious. After lunch, a student showed us around the dorms. I fell in love with the Centennial Hall. I also think that it is very awesome how you're able to fill out an housing application to room you with people you would most get along with. East Texas Baptist University is an amazing college and I honestly would not change anything about it.
ETBU helped mold me into who I am today. During my time there, I had my ups and downs with the school and town but you will have people there that truly care about you. I met my best friend for life there and we still talk every week even though we are over 6 hours away. Dr. Franklin, the head of the communication department, was the best mentor I could have asked for. He cared about my education as well as my well being and pushed me to become my absolute best. I will never take my years at ETBU for granted.
