• ‘Invitation to Excellence’ celebrates 25 years of introducing high achievers to Baylor


    Regardless of the season, hardly a weekend goes by without at least a few high school students visiting the Baylor campus as part of their college decision process. Naturally, those crowds are bigger at certain times of year; spring break is popular for college visits, as is summer. Baylor’s Fall and Spring Premieres also draw large crowds.

    Invitation to Excellence, on the other hand, is not about large groups. The program — which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year — brings only a select group of high-achieving students to campus each year. Here, they enjoy an entire weekend of getting to know the campus as well as students and professors from the department, school or college they plan to join.

    Interested high school seniors should apply now to attend one of this year’s Invitation to Excellence weekends, scheduled for Oct. 24-25 and Jan. 23-24. The event is specifically designed for students who have scored a 1300 or better on the SAT or a 30 and above on the ACT and who are interested in a major from the Hankamer School of Business, School of Engineering and Computer Science, College of Arts and Sciences, or Honors College.

    For more details and to apply, visit the Invitation to Excellence website.

    Sic ’em, future Bears!
