Over the years, the students of Brooks College have established several traditions that have enriched the life and experience of our community.
The student-led College Council plans several events throughout the semester that are annual traditions.
Some examples are:
Every graduating senior of Brooks College is invited to present a book of their choosing at the last Sunday Night Dinner of the semester with a personal inscription to future college members. Their words are a reflection of their experience at Brooks College and offer wisdom and advice to the current and incoming students. Senior Books are kept in a glass case in the Henry Library and students are encouraged to leaf through the inscriptions when needing a study break.
Each year, the graduating class is invited to participate in a tree planting ceremony on Minglewood Bowl before the last Sunday Night Dinner of the semester. During the ceremony, seniors bury written reflections or hopes for the future around the roots of a newly planted tree, marking their time at Baylor and at Brooks College.
