September 2009


Judy Maggard Welcome to the very first online issue of Perspectives, the Baylor publication just for parents! It has been exciting to prepare for the transition from a printed paper copy to this electronic form of communication. Two important objectives have been accomplished with this change. One is that we will be able to communicate with you more often than in the past, and secondly we have the opportunity to join other areas of the campus in ‘going green’ to help preserve and protect our natural resources. I hope you enjoy this new format and, of course, we appreciate any feedback you would like to share.

2009 Summer Send-off PartiesSend-off Party Success

The Baylor Parents League has both students and parents in mind as they prepare for school. Each summer, Baylor hosts Send-off Parties in locales across the country. Incoming Bears and their families gather from coast to coast to get to know each other, get answers to their questions and share excitement about becoming Baylor Bears. With more than 50 Send-off Parties hosted this summer, there was a lot of Baylor pride spread across the country!
