    Bruceville-Eddy Reviews

    I LOVE the atmosphere here at Baylor University! It is always very exciting around campus, and the longer I live on campus the more I am loving Waco. Waco is full of little hidden gems that are very fun exciting to do with friends. I love that Waco is getting more and more national attention and that people are beginning to see the beauty that already existed in Waco.
    Review Bruceville-Eddy
    Baylor University seems pretty safe, but around campus is sketchy. There are constantly campus police roaming throughout campus, but eight off campus, the neighborhoods and shops appear somewhat dangerous. I would not walk alone at night on campus, but especially off campus.
    Bruceville-Eddy is a peaceful, country town. Most people keep to themselves but when in need, someone usually steps up to offer assistance.
