It's time for us to celebrate a well-known tradition: Diadeloso! This year's "Day of the Bear" should provide for a fun-filled afternoon on Thursday, April 10th. The university has approved departmental closings from noon until 5 p.m., encouraging staff and faculty members to enjoy lunch and participate with students in games, contests, and music events.

(Those who elect not to participate in Diadeloso activities should continue to work as scheduled.)

Understandably, not all departments can close. In those cases, you are encouraged to split your time at Diadeloso with others from your department. We would like to encourage staff and faculty members to get involved in the recreational activities, even if only as spectators. For group competitive events, you may choose to form a departmental team, your own team or sign up to be placed on a team. Be sure to coordinate your participation with your department head before enrolling for activities. No entry fees are required! To register, contact the Baylor Chamber of Commerce at 710-3322.

Watch your email for more information, including a link to register for lunch and the dates/times that t-shirts will be sold!
