Back to the Future

June 4, 2003

Many new programs and networking opportunities are being initiated and strengthened to help our alumni connect at off-campus sites, but nothing beats a visit to campus. We hope that you'll begin planning now to make a trip back to Baylor this fall. 
If you haven't been back to the banks of the Brazos recently, you will scarcely believe your eyes when you return. University Parks Drive has been transformed with the ongoing construction of the new science complex, parking and office plaza and the Mayborn Museum Complex. You'll notice many other changes, as well, and have the opportunity to experience the spirit of the campus and to reconnect with the individuals and places that made your Baylor experience memorable.
Of course, fall means football game weekends, and all are eagerly awaiting the debut of Coach Guy Morriss and his Bears. This year, we have a seven-game home schedule, including Parents Weekend and Homecoming as well as traditional rivalries with SMU, Texas and Texas Tech. For the latest game information, visit
When you return to campus, you bring an energy and enthusiasm that is contagious to all who study and work here. Everyone benefits from having you back, even for a short visit. In these days when all are working so hard to achieve the ambitious and worthy goals of Baylor 2012, it's important that you have the opportunity to sense the excitement and commitment to excellence among the students, faculty and staff. Your faith in the greatness of Baylor will be renewed and strengthened when you come back -- to the future!
