The Baylor alumni web page (baylor.edu/alumni) brings news from and about the community as well as important links together in one place. It's a handy starting place for alums looking to learn about what's going on in the Baylor family and to connect with the university and their fellow alumni.

The Baylor Alumni Network provides nearly 1,000 opportunities each year for the Baylor community to come together wherever they live, work or play. To find groups and events near you, visit baylor.edu/alumni/network or call 254-710-8300.

Baylor Magazine goes out four times a year to the entire Baylor family, free of charge. It carries news about Baylor academics, student life, athletics and alumni to more than 140,000 households every quarter. Make sure your contact information is up to date at network.baylor.edu, and visit the magazine website (for an archive of stories and to submit your class note) at baylor.edu/alumni/magazine.

Baylor Proud is a blog that functions as a virtual refrigerator door for the Baylor family, daily sharing headlines and highlights of all the great things Bears are doing. Every seven to 10 days, an email goes out featuring recent posts from the blog. To view the blog and/or sign up for the email, visit baylor.edu/baylorproud.

The official Baylor Facebook page brings university news several times a day to more than 115,000 Bears across the world. If you haven't already, sign up at Facebook.com, then make sure BU news is coming to your timeline by clicking "like" at baylor.edu/facebook.

Instagram is a social network built around sharing photos; Baylor uses the official university account to share snapshots of campus life -- helping Bears who live far from campus feel back home at Baylor. Just eight months after its launch, Baylor is now the most-followed university Instagram account in the Big 12. See why by signing up for an account at instagram.com and following Baylor at instagram.com/bayloruniversity.

Millions of people use Pinterest to collect and organize things they love, from fashion and home decor ideas to great photos and recipes; users "pin" pictures to their online boards to share with their friends and to save for later. Baylor Proud uses the site to share gameday fashion for guys and gals, ideas for Baylor-themed events (from graduation parties to wedding receptions), tailgating recipes and more.
