Tommy Pettit, Doctoral Student

"I came to Baylor to work with Dr. Kenneth Wilkins because he has done so many different projects with bats," he says. "He has allowed me access to all the resources of his lab, and has helped me to improve my writing skills for efficiently communicating the objectives and results of my research."

"When I stepped onto Baylor's campus, I discovered something beyond what I was looking for," Grant said. "At Baylor I found not only great education opportunities but also an opportunity for a different kind of learning experience. The Baylor experience is one of a kind, it was the only university I looked at that aimed to develop the whole person."

Martin commends the faculty as "always available, professional and welcoming."
