In the span of two weeks in September, Baylor launched an official University Facebook page and a new iTunes U site to help alumni remain connected to their alma mater across the years and miles.
The Baylor Facebook
page contains videos, photos, event listings and a growing community of Baylor fans (13,000 and counting).
Scroll through photos of campus and events like Homecoming and tag yourself or friends on photos. Facebook fans can get updates from Baylor athletics, Baylor Proud and other campus sources right in the news feed and keep up to date on events like Parents Weekend and Winter Premiere. New material is posted daily.
The page links to other Baylor Facebook pages like Athletics, the College of Arts and Sciences, Hankamer School of Business, Honors College, Baylor Law, Baylor Libraries and the School of Social Work.
Baylor's iTunes U site offers free downloads of over 300 audio and video files, with more being added weekly.
Sports fans will enjoy seeing video highlights posted just a couple of hours after each game ends, as well as episodes of Inside Baylor Sports. Others might enjoy podcasts like the KWBU's Wordwise or the Baylor Business Review podcast, or reviewing lectures and speeches from recent events like the Alleluia! Music Conference and "Three Perspectives on Economics and Faith."
Chapel services, the new "Baylor All Stars commercial," this spring's listening sessions regarding the university's presidential search, student Snapshots--all this and more is available for free download at baylor.edu/itunes.
