Baylor University celebrated its annual Diadeloso April 10 on Fifth Street and at Fountain Mall.

This year's theme was "Carpe Dia 2003," a continuation of last year's "Stars, Stripes and Diadeloso" theme as the Baylor campus focuses on patriotism and a rebirth of the American spirit. Diadeloso included non-stop entertainment, several tournaments for brawn and brain, game booths, giant inflatables and other activities.

Diadeloso originated in 1934 to give students a break from classes. The Baylor Chamber of Commerce began organizing the spring holiday in 1935, and it quickly became an annual event. The name of the occasion has changed through the years from "All University Day" to "Physical Fitness Day" to "May Day." In 1966, the student body voted to name the annual event "Diadeloso" or "The Day of the Bear."
