Words cannot describe how thankful I am that people are willing to invest in my education. I am incredibly grateful. Since I intend to spend a large portion of my career overseas working in low-income areas, any amount of money that I put towards my education now rather than taking out a loan helps tremendously."
Michelle Sutanto, Junior University Scholar
in Biology and Medical Humanities
Among Student Foundation’s highest priorities is building community around campus. We hosted fun-filled campus programs, including
"The Bearathon was a wonderful experience to showcase all of the different types of leadership and commitment within Student Foundation. The event allowed me to see just how intrinsic our work is to the Baylor community and how fortunate we are as a university to have such a great relationship with the city of Waco."
Amelia Baumgardner, Student Foundation Co-President and
Honors student in Communication Sciences and Disorders
In addition to guiding campus tours, we assisted with more than 65 recruitment events, including 45 college fairs, around the State of Texas and throughout the nation.
"I love getting to travel around Texas and around the country sharing with high schoolers how much I love Baylor. Even getting to tell one potential student how Baylor has impacted my life is so fun!"
Anna Beth Mann, Student Recruitment Co-Chair
and Non-Profit Marketing major, Religion minor
Our student leaders answer the call to serve as Baylor’s premiere community builders and ambassadors to alumni, friends and prospective Bears. Student Foundation alumni depart campus equipped as leaders with the skill and motivation to serve their alma mater, their communities and their world."Being able to work with different groups on campus to help put on events like the All-University Thanksgiving Dinner made me feel connected to my peers and campus in a unique way. It is rewarding to reach out to and help over 8,000 students."
