High school seniors, transfer students and their parents are invited to visit the Baylor University campus Jan. 24-25 for Winter Premiere, sponsored by the Baylor office of admission services and the Baylor Chamber of Commerce.

Baylor's premiere events, which are held every fall, winter and spring, give prospective students and their families a chance to explore the Baylor campus, meet current students, professors and staff, and get questions answered about academics, financial aid, student activities and more. Baylor's Spring Premiere is scheduled for April 25-26.

Winter Premiere events begin Friday, Jan. 24, with an informal mixer for participants, current Baylor students and admissions staff from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the Bill Daniel Student Center. On Saturday, Jan. 25, information packets and a light breakfast will be available from 8:30 to 9 a.m. at Waco Hall, followed by a "Welcome to Baylor" opening session.

From 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., students will be able to "pick and choose" events, including tours of the campus, residence halls, McLane Student Life Center, labs and libraries; a student activities fair; a visit with the Baylor bear mascot; and special interest sessions on admissions, scholarships and financial aid, and study abroad programs. During the academic sessions, students will choose two fields of study and attend presentations by Baylor professors.

The deadline to pre-register for Winter Premiere is Jan. 17. The registration fee for students is $10, which includes lunch and a t-shirt. Additional meals for family members are $7 each, and extra t-shirts are $10. Late registration will be held at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 25 at Waco Hall.
