Baylor to Present Traditions Week Feb. 23-28Feb. 17, 1998
Baylor University's student government will sponsor the annual Traditions Week Feb. 23-28, with the theme "Proud Traditions, Bold Future," to emphasize the importance of both past traditions and new traditions in preserving the memory of Baylor.
According to Jaime Dolan, sophomore class president, Traditions Week is an important time for students "to remember what Baylor represents and look forward to the future of Baylor." Dolan said that Traditions Week represents "not only the past but also our future together."
The week will begin with student government's presentation in the 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. Chapel-Forum services Monday, Feb. 23, in Waco Hall. Revelation, a local men's quartet of Baylor graduates, will perform old Baylor songs. Alan Bowden, special projects coordinator for the Baylor Alumni Association, will present the new Baylor ring, which has more than 10 long-standing Baylor traditions represented on it. Also during Chapel-Forum, Student Body President Gannon Sims will speak with students about the fund raising effort for the new Immortal Ten statue and student government's commitment to memorializing that tradition.
The new Baylor ring and Baylor mace will be on display from 3-4 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 24, in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.
Students and faculty are asked to wear their Baylor Line jerseys to class Wednesday. Faculty, staff and students are also encouraged to wear jerseys to the last men's home basketball game of the season against Iowa State. The game begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Ferrell Special Events Center.
Students can get their pictures taken with the mascots from noon-2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 26, at the Steve Hudson Memorial Bear Plaza. Also at the plaza, the Baylor Chamber of Commerce will present "Traditions Pit" at 10:15 p.m. on Thursday.
