Houston Baptist University Reviews
Houston Baptist University is a great university to go to because of the environment and the staff members who work at the university. The environment is not only clean, but also positive as the people get along with one another. The staff members at Houston Baptist University always strive to encourage the students to do their best in classes and in their personal lives. They also create many different events and to try and engage with the students. The most important thing that Houston Baptist University offers is spiritual growth. The campus has a variety of programs (Bible studies, convocations, etc.) that allow the students to fellowship with their mentors and increase their love for God. Houston Baptist University is an excellent college to attend and a person would not regret applying to this university!
I personally feel that HBU is the best of the best. I went there with my mother and was greeted instantly by friendly faces. I automatically knew that this college was right for me. When the director came to greet us personally, he offered water or tea which was really nice. Also, the meeting we had with the univesity director was great! This school has everything you could possibly ask for.!
Houston Baptist University does have some great advantages during a college experience. However, it also has some serious flaws that the University needs to address. If you are looking for a place with ample opportunities to develop your faith, you are in the right place. HBU is a very small school with great opportunities to be involved in all types of organizations across campus. HBU is located near the Houston area which is a great place for networking and career choices. There are great academic resources for students within the library. However, the University does have its downfalls. Housing, on campus food, student involvement in allocation of funds, and the genuine care for each student at the University are all severely lacking. HBU has some great faculty members and those who make their students feel important and help them in any way possible, but there are also those who make students feel like nothing more than a paycheck.
