The Beauty of Baylor

The Beauty of Baylor is designed to give families the opportunity to see more of what Baylor has to offer. This year, the Baylor Chamber of Commerce invites you to take pictures as you explore the Beauty of Baylor and post them on Instagram with #BaylorBeauty2017. By doing so, you and your family will have a chance to win an exclusive tour of the Bear Habitat. Opportunities to learn more about Baylor's incredible campus include:

Bill Daniel Student Center:
The Student Union Building, or SUB, is known as the "heart of the campus" and provides a place to relax, study and participate in activities such as Dr. Pepper Hour, 5th Quarter, and the Baylor Gameroom.

The Armstrong Browning Library:
The Armstrong Browning Library is one of the most beautiful locations on campus. It houses the world’s largest collection of Browning material and other fine collections of rare 19th-century books, manuscripts, and works of art. (Scheduled tours will take place every hour from 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.)

Bill and Eva Williams Bear Habitat:
The Bear Habitat houses Baylor’s two bear mascots, Joy and Lady. During the day, they can be seen cooling off in the pool, exploring for food, and sleeping in their caves. Members of the Baylor Chamber of Commerce will be available to answer questions and provide information about the Baylor Bear Mascots Joy and Lady at the Bill and Eva Williams Bear Habitat from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
