A small Baptist school hidden away on the hilltop on Grove Street. New construction blends into the old. Historic cemeteries are near the campus.

My husband and I took my daughter here to visit and inquire about their Women's basketball program. The entire ETBU family was AWESOME! From admissions to the the basketball staff, everyone was so nice and helpful. They even had my daughters name up on a large board announcing her visit. This is a 1st class campus. The dorms are great.... More

As I often return to ETBU for a short visit, I stand amazed at the appearance of my alma mater. My how it has changed from 1967 to 2014! Never have I regretted attending East Texas Baptist College upon the recommendation of the late Jimmy and Virginia Marshall. I had excellent instructors--Dr. Eunice Ware, Dr. Marvin Harris, Dorothy Nell Rogers,... More

Very nice campus with lots of new building going on this summer. Better than that, the staff was very friendly and helpful. My child is transferring there and had lots of questions for two department chairs, the finance office and the registrars office. They answered as much as they could and he left knowing what else had to be done.... More

I had never heard of East Texas Baptist University. We were in marshall and had a few minutes to drive to the university. Very impressive for a small town. The old buildings looked like something from the deep south and there was new construction taking place all over the campus which by the way is rather large. They have a... More

The campus is very nice. Every single person I met wanted to tell me how glad they were to have my family visiting, and wishing us luck in transferring here. If you're interested in music, these people have a really great program geared for everybody. Excellent cafeteria, I even love the housing conditions. Oh, and if you're a freshman, they're... More

This place has one of the most beautiful campuses we have ever seen. The school is growing but is still small enough that the professors actually know the students (and vice-versa). The business school is outstanding and the music department has a faculty like you would expect to find at the largest and best performing arts academy. The Nursing School... More

A little run down campus with students who seem to think they are at an ivy league school. Nothing special to see and cannot say I was that impressed.
