When spring approaches the Baylor campus, it is time to begin thinking about Baylor's annual campus-wide holiday, Diadeloso. Students are given a day off from school and are invited to enjoy the spring weather and festivities on campus that include student organization booths, intramural tournaments, a petting zoo, food, and a music festival. It was originally known as May Day, then All-University Day, was founded in 1932 and transferred to Chamber control in the early 1940s. The name Diadeloso (Spanish for "Day of the Bear") was adopted following a campus name contest in 1966. In 2016, Baylor added Nochedeloso, (Spanish for "Night of the Bear") which takes place on the Monday night preceding Diadeloso. In both 2016 and 2017, the night was marked by an airing of the latest Star Wars movie in McLane Stadium.
