Alumni Association To Celebrate Legacy Weekend

Feb. 14, 2000

High school sophomores and freshmen whose parents are Baylor University graduates will have the opportunity to experience Baylor during the Alumni Association's annual Legacy Invasion on Saturday, Feb. 19.

The event, now in its third year, is aimed at first- and second-year high school students in an effort to show them a new thing or two about their parent's alma mater.

"We make it light and informative," said Lisa Asher, Legacy coordinator with the Alumni Association. "We want to communicate to freshmen and sophomores that Baylor offers exciting opportunities that maybe their parents don't know about. This is for a new generation."

About 150 students are expected to attend Legacy Invasion, which begins at 9 a.m. in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center. Included in the day's events are a campus tour, photo opportunities with Baylor's mascots, lunch in the dorms and a chance to attend either a basketball game or All-University Sing that evening. Baylor students involved with the Student Alumni Alliance will be on hand to assist the legacies who attend.
