The regents, administration and faculty of Baylor University believe that students should have comprehensive and varied opportunities for physical, intellectual, social, cultural, religious and emotional development. To this end a variety of services, activities and facilities is available to students.
The Baptist Student Ministries Office (BSM) provides a broad base of religious and social activities for students on the Dallas campus. Bible studies, both small-group and seminar types, are held weekly. "Lunchencounter" is held weekly with local churches providing lunch. Guest speakers highlight this worship and fellowship time.
Other BSM activities include Thanksgiving and Easter dinner, mission opportunities, retreat, and an annual mission trip each winter to Mexico.
The BSM is committed to providing a well-balanced program of ministry opportunities for all students on the Dallas campus. Recreational activities are planned for all students around cultural and sports events in the metroplex area. Medical missions experiences are also provided for interested students.
