Alumni by Choice

As Baylor Alumni, you shine Baylor’s light throughout the world, drawing countless others closer to the university. Because of ambassadors like you, we are fortunate to have the support of faithful friends who may not be traditional alumni, but love the Green & Gold and demonstrate their support of Baylor’s mission in a variety of ways. Honor their dedication by nominating them to become officially recognized as Baylor Alumni by Choice!

The program began in 1986 and has inducted over 3,000 individuals to the status of Alumni by Choice. All Baylor Alumni may nominate prospective Baylor Alumni by Choice by completing the nomination form describing the nominee’s love and support of the university. Once approved, each new Baylor Alumni by Choice class is recognized at the Alumni by Choice Ceremony, a special campus celebration where they receive their official Baylor Alumni by Choice "decree."
