Baylor University will welcome home alumni from across the country for its annual Homecoming celebration Wednesday, Oct. 20, through Saturday, Oct. 23. This will mark the 101st year since Baylor began Homecoming in 1909, kicking off the next 100 years. This year, Baylor Homecoming again holds true to many of its traditions while also incorporating new opportunities.
Baylor University will honor 10 members of the Baylor family for their contributions to the university and society, when the 2010-11 Baylor Meritorious Achievement Awards are presented at Homecoming later this month.
Dr. J. Gordon Melton, Distinguished Senior Fellow of Baylor University's Institute for Studies of Religion, will deliver a lecture at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, in Morrison Hall 100 on the Baylor campus.
Seven members of the Baylor University vocal faculty will join with pianist Jeffrey Peterson to perform a commemorative recital entitled "A Celebration in Song" at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 3, in Roxy Grove Hall in Waco Hall.
