Baylor embraces Homecoming with a twist

Different than any year before, Baylor successfully carried out an innovative way to keep the tradition of Homecoming alive amidst a pandemic.

Baylor, home of the nation’s oldest collegiate homecoming, held a pep rally on Friday evening at McLane Stadium. University executives, parade floats and food trucks were in attendance to give the Baylor community a taste of normalcy.

Students were reminded of the importance of the Immortal Ten and heard the Immortal Message written by Dr. Samuel Palmer Brooks, encouraging the Bears of the past, present and future.

Safe and socially distanced, Baylor was able to have student participation for other offered events and held a mass meeting on the football field, followed by fireworks.
