Overall this a great school! The academic programs are wonderful and the teachers want to see you succeed. There are many ob opportunities available on campus. Since this is a Christian school, most of the events and functions reflect that. The students themselves are not very diverse. The school allows for students to have clubs for the different ethnicities and nationalities on campus. There is no Greek life or big party scene on campus. Most people go home on the weekends or just enjoy trips out of town. I like staying on campus sometimes for the weekends because buildings aren't crowded and everything is really quiet and serene.

My experience at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor so far has been a great one. Although it is a small school, I think that's what makes it so great! You get to meet people very easily and have more one-on-one time with your professors. The professors here want every sinlge one of their studenst to succeed, so never be afraid to ask them for help! There's almost always something going on at the campus such as mission trips, club meetings, and sporting events. The campus itself is beautiful and since it is a small university, it helps with not having to worry about being late to class so much.
I love the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor because everyone is so nice and friendly! UMHB is a small university, but offers many extra-curricular clubs and events to ensure that students are involved. UMHB is a Christian-oriented university that helped me grow spiritually my first year of college The professors are amazing and go above and beyond to help the students excel.
