Alumni & Friends
Our hearts are broken. We thought we could — and would — do it: Back-to-back national championships by our beloved Lady Bears and their (already) legendary Hall of Fame Coach, Baylor's incomparable Kim Mulkey.
Today is special. On this Presidents’ Day, our nation once again honors the vision and sacrifice of both General George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln. At Baylor, February also is the month when we honor inspirational leaders who, in their era, have had a lasting impact on our University.
With warmest greetings of the season from your beautiful campus home, we wish you a joyous Christmas and a blessed New Year.
Happy Thanksgiving from the beautiful campus of Baylor University! This week, millions of Americans will gather together to renew a hallowed national tradition launched almost four centuries ago on the shores of Cape Cod at Plymouth Colony.
The fall semester is once again under way at Baylor. Already, our beautiful campus is a veritable beehive of energy and activity.
Throughout the month of June, we will welcome to Baylor's beautiful campus members of the class of 2016 as they participate in our wonderful New Student Experience. Each will be invited to explore his or her academic options and, in the process, learn about Baylor's robust academic and spiritual support, as well as our campus resources. Each new Baylor Bear will also become steeped in Baylor's glorious traditions. These baby Bears now become proud members of that Good Old Baylor Line.
Today is Law Day — established by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1958 and recognized annually to honor the role of law in the creation of the United States of America. How appropriate, then, that we at Baylor University bade farewell this very Law Day morning to former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
Here on the banks of the Brazos, spring has arrived. Winter rains have nourished flowering trees recovering from a harsh summer and fall, while seeds visible only to the eyes of God have burst underground silently spreading roots that promise a vibrant future.
Merry Christmas from Baylor University. May God richly bless you and your family as we celebrate this glorious season of Christ's birth and welcome the new year ahead.
What a wonderful Homecoming we experienced last weekend, as thousands of Baylor alumni once again returned to their beloved alma mater - in the immortal words of Samuel Palmer Brooks - to "renew former associations and friendships, and catch the Baylor spirit again."
