Submissions - Post your thoughts on Post-It in the designated area on the third floor of the Draper Academic Building. That's it. You will be entered for a drawing.

For audio submission, there are a few ways to enter. But once you enter, we will post a QR code to your audio and post it along all text entries.

  1. You can park your audio in your cloud and share the public link to i_mlc@baylor.edu.
  2. You can send your audio via email to i_mlc@baylor.edu.
  3. You can post your audio on social media and send i_mlc@baylor.edu your social media link.
