The world needs a Baylor that is committed to finishing the race we have started, striving to achieve pre-eminent status as a research university that is unambiguously Christian.

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.
In these days, as we begin another school year and especially do so as our nation is struggling with a darkness upon us, we are called again to be faithful and “light the ways” of our time. Dr. Livingstone is challenging us to respond prayerfully this Friday. As individuals, as small groups, and as a gathered faith community, we are invited to pray.
Things may be different on campus during the summer, but that doesn't mean you don't have access to fun and fitness as you attend summer classes. Here you will find summer hours of operation for dining, the McLane Student Life Center, the Pullin Family Marina, and the Game Room at the Bill & Vera Daniel Student Union Building.
Dr. Candi K. Cann and Dr. Clay Butler will serve as Faculties-in-Residence at North Village Texana House and Martin Hall respectively beginning in the fall.
