Baylor University will hold its summer commencement exercises at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Ferrell Center.

Baylor President Robert B. Sloan Jr. will present diplomas to more than 350 undergraduates and approximately 200 graduate and seminary students and give the traditional commencement address. John G. Wilkerson Jr., chairman of Baylor's board of regents, will present the greeting to the graduates, and Dr. A.A. Hyden, vice president emeritus for student affairs, will act as bearer of the mace.

Baylor's Alumni Association will hold its traditional graduation celebration following the ceremony on the lawn outside the Ferrell Center. Graduates can visit with professors and are invited to become members of the Alumni Association.

Baylor will hold several activities Friday night for graduates and their families. Doctoral students, their spouses, department chairs and mentors are invited to a dinner hosted by the Graduate School at 7 p.m. Friday in the Barfield Drawing Room of the Bill Daniel Student Center.

From 8:30 to 9 p.m. Friday night, the McLane Carillon, located in the tower of Pat Neff Hall, will be played in concert as graduates and their families gather for the annual "Split" party. Ice cream and toppings will be served at no cost beginning at 9 p.m. on the first floor of the Bill Daniel Student Center.
