Step Into the Baylor Story

Moody Memorial Library to Hold Relighting Ceremony as Kickoff to 50th Anniversary Celebration Jan. 16, 2018 Baylor is celebrating Moody Library's 50th anniversary by unveiling new LED lights outside the library, restoring the building's original look. What is #BaylorLights? President Livingstone explains. Jan. 8, 2018 In Matthew 5:14-16, each of us is called to be light in the world. Our distinctive mission as a nationally ranked research institution that is unapologetically Christian places us at a very unique crossroads where faith and learning, scholarship and teaching, knowledge and service combine to create an academic experience unlike any other. Baylor students travel to tsunami-razed Japanese city to serve — and to tell its story Jan. 5, 2018 “I want them (Baylor in Japan program students) to gain a sense of more responsibility, for themselves and for society,” she says. “For them to develop moral values and to become somebody who is willing to help others and contribute to larger society.” How international students find their ‘American family’ at Baylor Dec. 19, 2017 If you’ve ever visited another continent, country, even state or city, you’ve experienced what it’s like to be an outsider — to the area’s culture, foods, road system, language and the unspoken rules of everyday interactions. Now imagine having that “outsider” feeling throughout your four years of college, and you’ll know what it can be like to be an international student.
