Imperative II

Create a truly residential campus

The heart of the Baylor experience rests in the communion of ideas, experiences and relationships on campus. To facilitate and energize campus life, Baylor will seek to make more desirable residence halls available so that at least 50 percent of Baylor undergraduates are living on campus by 2012. Further, we will develop walking malls along the axes of campus to enhance the total social and relational environment. To complement the physical design of the campus, Baylor will create robust student life programming to enrich the life of the University and to cultivate social skills, leadership and physical fitness; therefore, a full array of opportunities for students to develop lifelong friendships will exist.
