2013 HOMECOMING

“Will you not, as a loyal student of dear old Baylor, lay aside for a few days the usual cares of life, come back to your alma mater, renew former associations and friendships, and catch that Baylor spirit again?” -- Samuel Palmer Brooks

My sincere hope is that your answer to Samuel Brooks' query is a resounding "Yes!" and that you'll honor us with your presence here in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience during Homecoming 2013.

We will be holding our annual Homecoming Coffee (and Dr Pepper floats!) on Friday, October 18th, from 3:30 – 5 p.m. in the Conference Room of the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience, located in Room B.309 in the Baylor Sciences Building. Please come to visit with your former professors, meet new faculty and tour the facilities.

We look forward to our annual get-together and the opportunity to see you, share what has been going on here, and hear about what is going on in your lives. Below, I have provided a few quick facts about your home department. Please come see us to find out more.
