January 2010


Judy Maggard Ushering in a new decade can be significant in a number of ways. Whether your student is a second-semester freshman or a graduating senior, the beginning of 2010 can mark a special time in their lives as they look forward to new opportunities and challenges.

In this issue of Perspectives, we share some ways you can help your students reach for new heights and take advantage of the college years to benefit themselves today and into the future.

The Parents League organization is here to serve you while your student is studying and living within the Baylor community. We hope that you will contact our office if we can be of assistance to you. Please visit our webpage for resources to help you in your journey as a Baylor parent.
