High School Seniors to Attend Fall Premiere Sept. 28Sept. 24, 1996
More than 1,000 high school seniors from around the state and country are expected to attend Baylor University's annual Fall Premiere on Friday, Sept. 28.
"It's a senior preview day where Baylor invites high school seniors who have requested information from Baylor about attending the university," said James Steen, assistant director in the Office of Recruitment.
Although not every student who has requested information is able to attend, those who do attend with their parents get a rare look at college life at Baylor and the variety of academic programs the university has to offer.
Fall Premiere begins at 8 a.m. in the Ferrell Center with a greeting from President Robert B. Sloan Jr. A panel discussion follows for parents and students to ask questions about different departments, policies and procedures on campus. A financial aid and scholarship overview is given, and the morning ends with a pep rally.
The noon hour involves lunch on campus, campus tours, a visit to residence halls, and an opportunity to visit libraries and the bookstore.
Steen said that students and parents then are allowed to attend two one-hour academic sessions of their choice, at 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. on campus. Forty-three academic departments will present sessions all over campus, allowing an in-depth look at certain majors or academic areas of interest.
At 3 p.m., approximately 50 organizations from the Department of Student Activities will be represented at Founders' Mall to show the variety of involvement opportunities available to the student body.
At 3:30 p.m., Fall Premiere ends in Waco Hall with the presentation of two All-University Sing acts and the singing of "That Good Old Baylor Line."
