Enjoying Your Retirement

As you enter the next phase of your life, you may be wondering what’s next, and what’s to become of the personal relationship you built over the years with the University—the friends you made, the experiences you shared, and the memories you created. As a Baylor retiree and lifetime member of the Baylor Family, that relationship not only continues—it grows.

Many of the benefits, perks and privileges you enjoyed as a Baylor employee, you retain as a Baylor retiree. From free admission to athletic events, free passes and discounts to University programs and performances, access to dining services, free parking, Homecoming, Christmas on 5th and special invitations to university-sponsored events—you can stay as engaged and connected as would like. And with more time to spend focused on what interests you, programs like Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning can open up a whole new world of possibilities. You can even choose to return to Baylor to work part-time.

Just because you’ve entered a new phase of your life doesn’t mean you say goodbye. Nor do we. Wherever your life takes you, we remain at your side, ready to help you access and enjoy your many benefits as a “Bear for Life.”
