Williams was my home for 4 years. The faculty and staff are top-notch. They are there to help if you need them. You are taught by proffessors and not grad assistants. I grew academically, athletically, and spiritually during my time there. If you’re looking to go to college to party and goof off, go somewhere else. If you want to grow in your field, skill, and relationship with God, this is the place for you!

Williams Baptist College is a great college. The campus ministry is very active in helping students live out their lifes for Christ. It has helped me develop a closer relationship with the Lord, along with many kids my age. Sometimes, it feels as if I’m back at church camp with all of my friends, which was a ton of fun! From the amazing professors who are available to help students one on one to the athletic diversity that makes cheering and supporting so much more fun, Williams has helped me adjust from high school to college with no trouble. I would recommend Williams Baptist to any student looking for a small college that wants to build a closer relationship with God, while achieving an academic degree.
I attended Williams Baptist University when it was Southern Baptist College, 1971-1972. I had been born and reared in Memphis, TN, and I found the SBC and Walnut Ridge, Arkansas community to be a warm, welcoming environment. The student body was relatively small; much like an extended family. That atmosphere still pervades the campus, though the school has grown. The professors, then and now, view their academic work as ministry, and, therefore, are student centered and much more available outside the classroom than large universities. I would wholeheartedly recommend WBC as a superb academic institution with Christian values.
