What is Parent & Family Weekend?
Throughout the years, the event has continued to evolve and expand. However, some traditions have remained a part of this cherished weekend. After Dark, a variety show of student performers has continued to showcase the incredible talents of Baylor students to visiting families. Parent-Faculty Coffee remains an extraordinary opportunity for Baylor parents to meet the faculty that actively educates their students. In addition, events such as The History Walks, which take families on a tour of the rich traditions of Baylor University, and the elegant Dessert Party, which is held on Founders Mall and offers parents the chance to relax with delicious desserts and a beautiful atmosphere, have been added to further enhance the weekend.
In 2012, the name of the weekend was changed to Parent & Family Weekend to reflect the inclusiveness of the event as Baylor has worked to welcome all members of the Baylor family to experience this incredible tradition.
