Houston Baptist University Reviews
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.
Beautiful campus. I love the small class sizes and the professors really care about your individual success. I also like that there are many spirituality growth opportunities on campus. It's also in Houston, so when you want to go off campus you can explore the wonderful city!
Houston baptist university has an execellent curriculum for learning. They have great teachers that are ready to help out with any difficulty. Friendly campus environment, neat and conducive for learning. Lots of extracurricular activities are provided for students which helps student to get to know each other better.
