East Texas Baptist University Reviews

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
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.
Great campus and great school. Very caring professors and workers. Many opportunities for student to get involved. Not a large campus but growing in size. New buildings added in the last several years and added football back to the school several years ago. Academics are high standard. Many classes require a research paper, even physical education classes. The campus is small enough to enjoy the walks to and from class. The quad in the middle is a gathering place for some activities. The Alumni association is very active. The students can enjoy sports as there are many on campus teams that are not associated with athletics. The dorms are nice and safe. You make friends for life here.
