Minority High School Students to Visit Baylor Jan. 13

Jan. 9, 1996

WACO, Texas - Minority students from across the state will visit Baylor University Saturday, Jan. 13, during the university's Quest Program.

The program, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center and sponsored by the Baylor Office of Recruitment and Parents League, allows minority students to discover the educational opportunities available to them at Baylor. Faculty, staff and students at Baylor will also attend the program to talk with the high school students about admissions, financial aid, academics, student activities and other related issues at Baylor. The program will help minority students find their place in Baylor life, said Tania Mitchell, admissions counselor, African-American liaison officer and Quest coordinator.

"Baylor offers students of color so many awards financially, intellectually, and culturally," she said. "A forum like this allows students to discover these opportunities."

Trooper Taylor, assistant football coach, will speak at 9:15 a.m. A tour of the campus and facilities will also be given. In 1995, Baylor set a record of more than 20 percent minority student enrollment.

The program is available to all minority high school seniors and their parents. For more information, contact Mitchell at 755-3435 or 1-800-BAYLORU, option 1.
