What is it about living in a new city that makes you feel completely inept?
Waco First Baptist Church is giving Baylor graduate students the opportunity to improve their living spaces from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday at 400 S. 6th Street.
This fall, school groups who visit Baylor’s bear habitat will not only have the chance to see the live mascots, but learn about them as well.
Members of the Baylor and Waco professional community will experience Baylor football like never before from their newly revealed luxury suites.
All of us are familiar with the term “Ring by Spring.” A bright-eyed freshman girl enters Baylor with her pink linens and hopes of becoming a doctor; four years later, she graduates with a rock on her left hand.

Almost from the moment he arrived on campus in February of 2008, head coach Art Briles told the administration that he wanted a stadium. Baylor had not qualified for a bowl game since 1994 and finished winless in the Big 12 in 2007, but Briles thought a stadium would be necessary to take the next step toward becoming an elite football program.
