Students from other classifications share what they did back in their first summer of college.
“What I loved about Baylor — that I think we have retained even though we’ve grown larger — is it felt like a community,” Ford said. “When I walked across campus, I saw people I knew. I was able to get to know my professors. I felt like I got to know everybody in my classes.”
Baylor is full of countless resources for students to get ahead on their writing, research and assignments. The university has several research libraries, institutes and centers. Moody Memorial Library and Jesse H. Jones Library — the main research complex and libraries on campus — provide over 3.5 million physical resources and over 1.3 million electronic resources to students.
According to nationwide statistics, Baylor's freshman retention rates, four-year graduation rates and six-year graduation rates are well above the national average, showing how Baylor students perform better than average. The university also consistently ranks among the top academic schools in the country.
Understanding campus norms is a vital part of getting the true experience that university has to offer. Baylor is no exception. The university has its own expectations and norms that not every student may be aware of. To aid with this, students shared their advice on what to do and what not to do when roaming the streets of Baylor's campus.
