One of the most common questions people ask me is, "What is the difference between a residential college and a typical residence hall?" In point of fact, there are many differences, from student leadership to faculty involvement. But in my view, that question simply begs a bigger question, "What sort of people is a residential university trying to graduate?"
Rooted in a provenance that stretches back for centuries, the College offers a physical and organizational framework at the nexus of faith, intellect and community – a place where we not only ask big questions, but where we also attempt to live in accordance with the answers. I warmly invite you to engage with other students, faculty and staff as we explore our calling together, a calling both to excel in our work and to be people of faith and virtue.
Though our College offers preferential admission to aspiring engineers and computer scientists, students from a diversity of majors live here serving in positions of leadership and weaving their unique strengths and characteristics into the fabric of the community. I hope you'll find your home away from home with us.
May you know the blessings of our Lord and Savior during your time at Baylor,
