    Baylor Commencement

    Congratulations, Class of 2017 — you did it!

    More than 2,500 Bears walked the Ferrell Center stage over the weekend at Commencement to receive their diplomas and officially become Baylor alumni. As usual, the highlight was seeing so many students celebrate the culmination of their years of hard work; you can see it in their faces as they crossed the stage and celebrated afterwards, what earning that degree really means.

    Saturday afternoon’s ceremony included a bonus event, as one graduating senior took the opportunity to propose to his girlfriend, a 2016 Baylor graduate seated in the audience:

    Three quick reminders for you new graduates:

    1. The Baylor Alumni Network exists for you; find and connect with your fellow Bears wherever life takes you next.
    2. Stay in touch! Make sure you’re following Baylor on social media, and don’t forget to keep your contact info updated so you’ll stay informed about what’s happening back here at BU — details like future Homecoming dates and other big Baylor events.
    3. No matter where you go, you’ll always be a part of the Baylor family.

    Sic ’em, Class of 2017!
