Your HBU Experience Starts Here.

Congratulations on deciding to be a Husky here with us at Houston Baptist University! Here at HBU, we place a special emphasis on the meaningful experiences that students will gain throughout college. This starts with the student’s First and Second Year Experience. We have created a holistic program to assist students in building a foundation to be successful and well-rounded college students.

There is much to look forward to throughout your first two years at HBU! We invite you to read more about our programs and to contact us with any questions that you come across.

    We know that as a new college student, it can be overwhelming to start at a new place. This remains true whether HBU is one mile or 3,000 miles away from home. We are here to provide you with the support to make HBU feel like home to our new students. Our First Year Experience program is designed to help students to be connected to the campus. It is our goal to make students comfortable on campus and to think of HBU as home. Don’t forget to get involved, as a LOT of questions, and remember to have a great first year! More information…
