That Good Old Baylor Line transcends place and time, representing the Baylor spirit during Homecoming 2020

October 14, 2020

"The idea for a homecoming celebration at Baylor was pioneered in 1909 by professors seeking a way to connect alumni to each other and to their beloved university. In a time when on-campus events are adapting to protect Baylor and the surrounding Waco community from the spread of COVID-19, it’s only fitting that the University that hosted the first recognizable collegiate homecoming celebration in the United States would creatively find a way to re-imagine a longstanding tradition.

"Those of us who love and cherish our University recognizes that the Baylor Spirit transcends place and have embraced that deeper understanding of connection. While we all love to experience these traditions on campus, in this season, it’s actually really beautiful to have the opportunity to extend that spirit through connections all around the world," Director of Student Activities Dr. Matt Burchett said.
