Students judge their time at Baylor ‘excellent’
On Monday, we wrote about the results USA Today ran from the National Survey of Student Engagement. Today, we’ve got some more interesting data from the survey.
Baylor clearly outshines its peers in two questions that encompass the entire college experience. First-year students and seniors were each asked “How would you evaluate your entire educational experience at this institution?” 50% of first-year Bears and nearly 60 percent of seniors said “Excellent,” compared to averages around 40% at peers with similar characteristics (schools like BYU, Miami, Oral Roberts, Pepperdine, Seton Hall) and barely 30% at peer research institutions (including Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Oregon and Purdue).
Similarly, students were asked “If you could start over again, would you go to the same institution you are now attending?” Nearly 60% of Bears said “definitely yes,” versus under half of students at peer schools and barely 40 percent of students at peer research universities.

Sic ’em, proud Baylor students!
