Our math and science departments at Baylor are definitely core strengths. Many students participate in Chemistry Competitions across the United States and find math classes to be challenging as teachers try to bring up the difficulty and interest in students for subjects.
1.) Describe the athletics at your school - what did you like most about it?
Baylor has a nationally recognized swimming program for quite a long time and has many distinguished features in other areas as well. As you visit Baylor, you see that successful students strive from diligence in the work they put in and out of school. They understand that there is no easy way out for success, so they fight for it.

As mentioned, Baylor has an outstanding arts program located in the heart of the roddy theatre. Students from across the world participate in arts at Baylor, and more than half of the school looks forward to performing in the arts at Baylor.

Our Rivalry school, McCallie has a distinct relationship with Baylor in the field of football. They are located near downtown Chattanooga, where most Baylor students go to enjoy their time.

Everyone at Baylor is very comforting and talkative. I loved the connections I made and I value them from day to day.
