Baylor University's Class of 2008 represents students from different backgrounds, majors, organizations and ambitions. However, these students are united by more than a common graduation year, as more than 84 percent of Baylor students receive financial aid of some kind to attend Baylor. Starting this year, Baylor's senior class gift will establish and support an endowed scholarship fund that will allow more students to experience Baylor, thanks to Baylor students who went before them.
After nearly a decade in the making, the 9-foot-tall, 1,200-pound Pyfer bear sculpture has a new home in front of Baylor University's McLane Student Life Center. The bronze sculpture, created by Dr. Douglas W. Crow, professor of German and sculptor-in-residence at Baylor, and funded through a generous gift by Carol (Trice) and John F. Pyfer of Lancaster, Pa., was installed Nov. 12 in the island circle in front of the SLC.
Baylor University announced today a $5 million gift from Clifton and Betsy Robinson of Waco that will provide the financial means for some of the nation's highest achieving high school students to obtain a top education at Baylor.
