Bed Races & Chili Cook-Off

Presented by: Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity, Chi Omega Sorority and Baylor Activities Council

Baylor welcomes all types of students. Cowboys, ninjas, pajamas, and Power Rangers have all found a home on campus-at least at Bed Races. Hosted by Alpha Tau Omega fraternity, this annual program pairs student teams with decked-out hospital beds on oversized wheels, perfect for racing down 5th Street through the middle of campus.

While you're watching the races, be sure to grab a bowl of homemade chili from the Annual Chi Omega Chili Cook-off, benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Prizes are awarded in a variety of categories. Join us for a night at the races & great food!

Presenting sponsors: Baylor Student Government, HEB, Vitek's, & Oso Scooters
