Changing face of BU encourages alum

Sept. 2, 2003

Letter to the editor

True, Baylor has been in the news lately with all the infractions that have surfaced; but just about every alumni that I have talked to still is proud to say that they graduated from the finest university in Texas. My wife, my 15-month-old son and I took a trip to Austin a few weeks ago and decided to see what was going on at Baylor. We were blown away at all the changes that were being made. New buildings, new parking garages and several other changes just blew us away.

The brand new science building that is already underway reminded us that despite all the media attention that we have received recently, I am still proud that I graduated from Baylor and I will shout it from the rooftops. The Baylor 2012 vision will make Baylor better than it has already been. I hope the next few years will be ones to remember in the lives of Baylor students, faculty, staff and alumni nationwide.
