Our Traditions

Here in Impact, we have numerous programs and activities with which students are encouraged to participate. A few of those include:

Coffee House



One afternoon a week, residents gather in the South Russell lobby for coffee and treats. This gathering is a great opportunity to interact with faculty, staff, and peers. A great time to connect with neighbors.




Minutes with Mona


Once a month our Faculty-in-Residence, Dr. Mona Choucair, opens her apartment home within South Russell for students to spend quality time and enjoy food with her and her guests. Here, students get advice on how to be successful in college and make lasting relationships.

Fall Fest





During the fall semester the Impact LLC fills the South Russell courtyard with games, pumpkin decorating stations, and the residents' favorite fall treats. Students have the opportunity to be a part of these festivities and socialize with residents, as well as faculty and staff from the hall and University.


BYOMug and Book Study




Our Resident Chaplain hosts a weekly Bring-Your-Own-Mug and Book Study program in her South Russell apartment where residents can visit, enjoy coffee and snacks, and spend time connecting outside of classes. 



Service Projects





In addition to a variety of other service events, every Fall and Spring Impact takes a group of residents to assist local businesses, non-profit agencies, and schools through Baylor's Steppin' Out Program.


Late Night Breakfast


Students gather during finals for a study break complete with all the breakfast favorites.


Cheering on the Bears



Students gather and attend a Baylor Athletics game (basketball or baseball) together to cheer on the Bears to victory.








Each year, a handful of sophomores, juniors, and seniors choose to return to the Impact LLC for another year of residence. Because these students are often viewed as mentors and role models for first-year Impact residents, we show our appreciation for them through specialized programming such as shared meals, cooking classes, trivia nights, and more.
