"I have really used the Academic Success Center and it has been amazing in terms of having an objective third party to help with study plans. Baylor does a great job of prioritizing student mental health. Through the student insurance you can get appointments and then with the WellConnect network you can call 24/7 and be connected with a counselor. In addition, our faculty are amazing in terms of empathizing with what we go through."
