Why Baylor



If you thought you might have to sacrifice certain values during your college experience, we hope to prove you wrong.

Baylor University, a private Christian university and a nationally ranked research institution, provides a vibrant campus community for more than 16,000 students by blending interdisciplinary research with an international reputation for educational excellence and a faculty commitment to teaching and scholarship.

At Baylor you won't have to give up a stellar experience outside of the classroom in order to get a rigorous, respected education. You'll have the opportunity to explore your faith and beliefs while discovering your life calling. Baylor is the kind of place where curiosity is fostered, where you can ask the hard questions and explore the answers alongside world-renowned faculty and other students.

Here you'll have the benefits of a large university as well as the personal attention and family atmosphere of a small university. You'll be embraced by our Christian community. You'll have access to the resources and tools that can take you above and beyond what you thought was possible. We hope you'll find your home at Baylor and become part of our rich tradition.
