I enjoy attending Wayland small classes, and working with some of there warmed staff at times. Wayland allowed me to experience and explore my experience and learn while enjoying being educated. Wayland is a wonderful place to pursue your education. One thing I wish for the other half of staff they collaborate just alittle more so that the students are more confident about what they want to follow through when considering their degree! their career! Over all I am grateful that I was able to hold it all together being the first of 16 siblings to graduate and set the example for all of my family members. It has been and challenge. I want to continue to be that example .

Review Wayland Baptist University
Wayland Baptist University Hawaii is a great and convenient place for me to go to school. The classes are very intimate and the teachers are very thorough in their teaching. Most of the students are older and have a military background. Although I am one of the youngest students there, there are some that are even younger. This is because my school offers a jump start program where kids in high school can start their college classes. I think it is better to have an older crowed of students because they are serious about their education and are mature. I really have enjoyed this school.
Wayland is a university that has smaller branches in rural areas, which is why I chose to attend. They offer in class and online courses to suit working students. They are always polite when you call with questions and try to assist students with their needs. The only thing I would change is the price of tuition. It is a little higher than some colleges; however, the courses are 11 weeks.
