High school sophomores and freshmen whose parents are Baylor University graduates will experience Baylor during the Alumni Association's fourth annual Legacy Invasion Saturday, Feb. 17.

The event is aimed at first- and second-year high school students in an effort to showcase what's new at their parent's alma mater.

"Parents love showing off their school, and the kids enjoy exploring the campus and finding things their parents don't know about," said Lisa Asher, Legacy coordinator with the Alumni Association. "It's always a fun and informative weekend. Both alumni and their children come away with a sense of pride and expectation about coming back again to Baylor."

About 170 students, parents and invited guests are expected to attend Legacy Invasion, which begins at 9:30 a.m. in Marrs McLean Gym. Included in the day's events are a campus tour, photo opportunities with Baylor's mascots, lunch in Penland cafeteria and a visit to the McLane Student Life Center. Guests also will have the opportunity to attend a variety of afternoon and evening activities including a Baylor baseball game against Nicholls State, a Baylor women's basketball game against the University of Missouri or All-University Sing. Student Foundation members will be on hand to assist the legacies who attend.
