Campus Life

The Baylor college experience is special. We cultivate a rich campus life that will help you grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally. Whether you're enjoying Diadeloso (our campus-wide "Day of the Bear" celebration), taking some time to reflect in chapel or just hanging out over coffee, you'll feel a part of the Baylor family from the moment you set foot on Fountain Mall.

Collin Bryant

“Baylor gives you the ability to find who you are, while interacting with people from all walks of life. It’s easy to get lost in the sea of people on some large campuses, or feel stuck in a small pond on small campuses, but not at Baylor. It serves as a nice in between. You can truly get involved and brand yourself into who you want to be at this university and you’re not punished for changing your mind and going in a different direction.”

“Since the first time I stepped on campus, I have felt at home. Once you get to Baylor, visitor or student, you become part of a community that is similar to a family setting. College should be a place that you’re proud to call home because it’s going to be your second home for the next 4 years. I now refer to Baylor as home and tend to spend more time in Waco than in my hometown.”

“Baylor has set me up for success after graduation because of all the resume-boosting programs they offer. I’ve studied abroad, gotten an internship in Washington, D.C., received LSAT and application assistance from the Pre-Law Office, and written a thesis as a University Scholars major in the Honors College. Thanks to the efforts of these various departments within Baylor, I am confident in my future success in law school.”

“The Baylor experience is so special to me because of the people. You can get a good education at a lot of schools, but the community at Baylor really sets it apart. The friends, memories, and experiences you share during your time here will last you way beyond just 4 years.”
