East Texas Baptist University Reviews
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!
I feel very safe living on East Texas Baptist University's campus! It has a very kind and encouraging atmosphere! The professors help in all ways that they possibly can to prepare you for your career and in class. It is a beautiful campus with wonderful opportunities! I earned prize money for entering a creative writing contest! The friends I've made are for life. Several professors have their doctoral degrees! I could say several more things about this University.
I have yet to attend the university itself however, from what I have heard and just talking to the administrators and coaches involved, they are such a caring and loving environment. I hope to attend their school come soon!
