Good teaching and learning. Campus improvements

I have been working at Baylor University full-time

ProsThe campus is growing. There has been a lot of investment in developing the infrastructure, as well as, the human resources. Campus life is calm and fun, great for research.

There is development in campus, new stadium coming Fall 2014

ConsLong working hours, although mostly by choice not necessarily a requirement.

True Learning Experience

Student (Current Employee)
Waco, TX

I have been working at Baylor University as an intern for more than 5 years

ProsGreat facilities, professors, and quality of education. There are plenty of activities to do around campus like kayaking, basketball, running, working out, volleyball etc.

ConsThe campus is not as diversified as it could be and there seems to be a plethora of white fraternities and sororities. And the christianity of the individual professors and students can get to be too overbearing. Oh and the required religion classes are hard as heck.

Advice to Senior ManagementDrop the required religion classes an chapel.

ProsInsurance benefits are good for salaried workers, and work community is family-like if you desire a "hometown" feel.
