Late Night connects new students with variety of organizations

By Jenna Welch | Broadcast Reporter

Late Night is a popular tradition during the first week back on campus for all students, particularly freshmen, to find out how they can get involved at Baylor. Hundreds of freshmen and other students gathered on Friday night in the McLane Student Life Center, Russell Gym, the Bill Daniel Student Center and other places on campus to check more than 200 different organizations.

The organization leaders and members set up booths to show what their organization entails, the aspects that attracted them to the organization and the commitments necessary to become a member. Late Night has always been held on the first weekend following the opening week of class. This is to allow students an opportunity to get to know their fellow Baylor bears and be involved in the Baylor community.

Lakeway senior Callie Dick, president of the rowing club, said Late Night is always great for meeting new members, and that she was able to find her place on campus among her fellow rowers.

“I like that it’s not only hard workouts, but it’s also family,” Dick said.

For students that were unable to make it to the Late Night event, more information about these organizations can be found on the Student Activities website.
