I was under the impression that this school was a great Christian/Baptist school. There are many great aspects of this school, but as a whole this school isn’t predominantly Christian. I don’t know of ways to change this or to make it better. I was just disappointed after having high expectations. It is still a great school and I really enjoy all of my classes!

If you are ready to deal with professors and faculty who can be a bit over pushing of the Baptist religion then this school would be fine for you. The rules here are strict, but are told upfront but some still seem surprised when they get in trouble. Sports are average, but the people who play them can become lifelong friends!
I am currently a senior in HLGU, I am from Spain and I am a catholic who didnt know much about Baptism before coming here.
The classes are small in size and that helps a lot with the conection with the teachers and members of the staff. But They are abit crazy about religion and some rules dont make sense and really makes a poor experience because of how strong the rules are.
Overall people are very nice but there is a craze in the Baptism that I didnt know before coming here.
