Baylor University's Student Government will sponsor the annual Traditions Week Feb. 26-March 2, with the theme "Old Memories, New Traditions" to emphasize the role the students play in the creation and preservation of Baylor traditions.

According to co-director Gannon Sims, Traditions Week is a "time for students and staff to reflect on the rich heritage and to look at things we consider traditions now and may not have considered at the time."

The week will begin with Student Government's presentation of a Traditions Week video at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 26, during Chapel-Forum in Waco Hall. Baylor songleaders will be performing.

A special Coke Hour will be held with musical entertainment and Traditions Week displays from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 27, in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.

Dr. C. Alton Hassell, lecturer in chemistry and Baylor graduate, will speak on past Baylor traditions that have disappeared at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, at Chapel-Forum in Waco Hall.

The Baylor Chamber of Commerce will present TraditionsPit at 10:15 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 29, at the Steve Hudson Memorial Bear Plaza.

An Open Bear Pit will be held from noon-2 p.m. Friday, March 1 at the Steven Hudson Memorial Bear Plaza. Photographers will be available to take pictures of people with the mascots.
