Senior Class Gift - Class of 2020
To the Class of 2020,
Congratulations on your graduation from Baylor University! We hope that you take time to celebrate this great accomplishment and proudly look back on your Baylor journey. Together, we have grown as leaders, friends, and students, leaving a significant impact on Baylor’s campus.
The Class of 2020 has experienced many changes during our time on campus, with the challenge of COVID-19 possibly being the most significant. We will be forever bonded by the sadness we shared in the sudden end to our time on campus. Our class in particular will be remembered for its resilience and commitment to Baylor’s mission to be a light in our world through this unprecedented season of growth. These uncertain times have presented the unique opportunity to simultaneously recognize the perseverance of the Class of 2020 and highlight the deeply rooted faith of the Baylor Family.
We hope to commemorate our time as Baylor Bears through constructing a Legacy Walkway on the grounds of Traditions Plaza and the Immortal Ten. For our class, this walkway will symbolize the walk we would have taken during our Spring graduation. Traditions Plaza is dedicated to those who have given much to Baylor, and we have an opportunity to provide a significant addition to its meaning.
A bricked pathway with a marker in the middle will highlight a meaningful scripture for our time at Baylor, Hebrews 12:1, encouraging us to be the Baylor Family, noting "Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us."
We have developed an online store to contribute to this project, where you will receive exclusive access to four unique shirt designs. With your purchase of a $25 shirt (donation included), you will support the President’s Excellence Fund or the Senior Class Legacy Fund (your choice), and the Class of 2020 will leave its mark on a place we will always call home.
