When the condensed academic schedule for the semester doesn’t allow for an entire day off to enjoy Día activities, what do Baylor Bears do? They adapt the tradition and celebrate the spirit of Día for an entire week! As the Spring 2021 semester nears its end, we hope you’ll take a break from studying and join in some of these COVID-19-safe activities throughout the week.

Día started in 1932 as a way to "bring smiles to the faces of students" by giving them a break from classes. The annual spring holiday gradually became a favorite pastime. Re-organized by the Chamber of Commerce in 1935, its popularity rapidly grew and the name of the occasion through the years changed from All University Day to Physical Fitness Day to May Day. In 1966 students voted to name the annual occasion "Díadeloso" or "The Day of the Bear."
