Response to Harvey Update

Our hearts ache for those impacted by the unprecedented devastation from Hurricane Harvey along the Texas coast and in Houston and southeast Texas. Many among our Baylor Family -- alumni, students, parents, faculty and staff -- have been personally affected by this catastrophic storm. While in Waco, we have been spared any storm damage, we are ever mindful of the needs of those in the storm's path.

Baylor Lariat: Baylor professors engage students, shape lives

Oct. 11, 2017
Members of the Baylor community aren’t the only ones who appreciate Baylor’s small class sizes and welcoming environment; The Wall Street Journal noticed it when it ranked Baylor No. 6 nationally for student engagement at the end of September. The engagement category specifically considered whether students recommended their university, the level of interaction among teachers and students and the number of accredited programs. “You hear that Baylor’s a caring community but expect to hear those taglines,” said Bellville senior Hannah Byrd. “I think I was surprised to experience personally how much that was true. It wasn’t just a line on a brochure but I saw it in my own life and my friends’ lives.”
