Prospective students from Baylor University and throughout Texas and the U.S. who are interested in learning more about George W. Truett Theological Seminary are invited to campus Thursday and Friday, Feb. 8-9, for Truett's Winter Preview.

The preview allows prospective seminarians to attend seminary classes, learn about Truett's many academic options, meet Truett faculty, students and staff, tour the Baylor campus and view the construction of Truett's $17 million, 64,000-square-foot campus.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for prospective students to interact with Truett students and faculty and to evaluate not only their calling into ministry but the benefits of preparing at Truett," said Dr. Michael Morgan, assistant dean and lecturer in Christian religious education.

Parents and spouses also are encouraged to attend. Accommodations and meals are provided.

Registration begins Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m. at Truett Seminary, located at First Baptist Church at Fifth Street and Clay Avenue in Waco. Dinner from 6 to 8 p.m. will be held at Buzzard Billy's restaurant in downtown Waco, followed by "Coffee and Conversation" at a local restaurant and cafe. Friday's information sessions on student life, finances and academics will take place in the large parlor at First Baptist Church. Prospective students also will visit classes from 10:30 a.m. to noon, followed by lunch with Truett faculty at noon in the fellowship hall, Baylor campus tours from 2 to 3 p.m. and free time from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The preview will conclude with a dinner with faculty from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Harrington House on the Baylor campus.

"These previews are probably the most important thing we do in recruiting, to show students the distinctives of Truett Seminary," said René Maciel, director of student services, who said he expects more than 100 prospective students to visit Truett during the Winter Preview, as well as the Spring Preview scheduled for March 15-16.
