Describe Baylor in One Word:

Why Statistics?

Why Baylor?

For my undergraduate degree, I attended Harding University, which is another private Christian liberal arts college. I enjoyed my experience there so much and wanted to find something similar yet more intellectually challenging for my graduate education. After my initial visit to Baylor's statistics department, I knew right away that this program offered the perfect balance of those two things.

Unique Aspects:

The fact that Baylor stands firmly by its own Christian identity and heritage for as long as it has is what makes this university truly unique in every aspects.

Faculty:

Faculty members in our department are dedicated to bring out the best in every student.

Baylor Community:

I like the fact that Baylor offers everything a college can offer to its students. I mean everything, and yet living in a mid-sized town like Waco keeps me grounded and focused. Besides, I don't have to deal with the expensive cost of living and the crazy traffic. I'm a lover of big cities, but I find Waco and Baylor to be quite perfect for what I'm here to do.

Surprises at Baylor:

There are two Starbucks on campus now! I only saw one when I came for my interview. The new one is right next to Marrs McLean science building, where our department is located. I love running there before the first class for my morning fix!

Recommend Program?

Yes- I only have good things to say about the department.
