"Baylor's commitment to academic excellence and Christianity really drew me in. After attending two state institutions, I wanted to be in an environment where I could talk openly about my faith and share it with others. Looking at other Christian institutions of higher education, Baylor one of few institutions that believe that being a top research institution and remaining a truly Christian university is achievable, and that one does not have to supersede the other."
