Stay Connected!

Homecoming Parade & Alumni Reception

Student Foundation alumni are invited to join our members to walk in the Homecoming Parade with our members.  Don't worry, you don't need to walk the full route with us, but you can join us when we reach campus by meeting us in driveway of the Baylor Bookstore on 5th Street no later than 9:00 AM.  Just look for a Student Foundation member wearing our striped jerseys and you can jump in with us there to walk with us through campus!  We cannot guarantee the time when Student Foundation members will reach campus, but we expect that to happen between 9:00 and 9:30.  To help us prepare for you joining us, please complete this brief online form!

Not interested in walking with us but still want to watch the Homecoming Parde with a reserved seat and breakfast, then consider joining us in the Homecoming Parade Grandstands.  A variety of ticket options are available and all proceeds benefit Student Foundation Scholarships.  Learn more and purchase tickets by clicking here.

Following the Homecoming Parade, Student Foundation alumni and friends are welcome, as always, to stop by the Ed Crenshaw Student Foundation Center for a time of fellowship with current and past Student Foundation members.  We encourage you to come by for some refreshments, a quick bite to eat, re-connect with Student Foundation, and place your mark on the "Legacy Wall" in the Crenshaw Center.  No RSVP is required - we just hope you will drop by with your family and friends!

Remember Your Connection Card

Your Connection Card will always point you back to the best ways to stay in touch with Student Foundation and fellow alumni and friends.  Stick this card in your wallet or in a trusted place!

Legacy Wall in Ed's

Student Foundation alumni are always welcome back to the Ed Crenshaw Student Foundation Center on campus and, when you come by, we encourage you to leave your mark on our "Legacy Wall!"  You just write your name, your years of Student Foundation service, and one word that describes your Student Foundation experience or the impact Student Foundation had on your life. 

There's always a chance to participate remotely, just email us ( with what you want written on your sticker (and which color sticker you prefer), and we'll hand-write it and put it on the wall for you!
