Welcome to East Texas Baptist University, and congratulations on becoming an official ETBU Tiger. Your success is our highest priority, and the entire University community wants you to achieve your educational and personal goals. I encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity you find. Meet new people. Explore new interests. Achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
To help you take full advantage of life here on the hill, I am happy to present you with a copy of the 2011-2012 Student Handbook. Inside this handbook you’ll find a number of useful resources, including our Student Code of Conduct; a common framework of regulations that help students maintain the high standards of excellence we expect from the entire community. Founded on Biblical principles and enhanced through our rich Baptist heritage, the regulations found in this handbook are meant to enable you to live successfully while accomplishing all your goals. As a student, you are responsible for knowing these regulations and abiding by them.
Familiarize yourself with the information found inside, and keep the publication handy as a valuable resource and reference guide. If you prefer an electronic version, the Student Handbook is also available online.
It’s my belief that God has led you here to make a difference. We look forward to working with you and sharing in your success at ETBU.
Dr. Dennis Robertson Vice President for Student Affairs
