Baylor Law
Equipped to Navigate
All Waters.
Andrew Martinez / Brazos River, Waco, TX
Less than 10 minutes from campus, Andrew is off the grid, his kayak drifting silently beneath majestic cliffs, shielded by miles of canopied forests along Texas’ longest river. He moves calmly, with confidence, knowing that in law—as in life—the better prepared he is for what’s around the bend, the better equipped he’ll be to handle it.
