Congratulations, Baylor Class of 2019!
Congratulations, Class of 2019 — you did it!
This weekend, more than 2,500 Bears walked the Ferrell Center stage to receive their hard-earned diplomas. Thousands of their friends and family filled the Ferrell Center for each of three ceremonies, and tens of thousands more watched the live-streamed video. This year, the Ferrell Center videoboard even featured family and friends’ tweets and Instagram posts, celebrating individual graduates and all they’ve accomplished.

As a proud Baylor graduate who walked across that same stage many years ago, the best piece of advice I can give you is this: Stay in touch. Update your alumni information so that wherever your future takes you, you’ll know what’s going on with your alma mater and can connect with fellow grads. If you don’t already, follow Baylor on social media to watch how your alma mater grows and develops.
And finally, even as your friends scatter all over the world, make an effort to get together on a regular basis. Maybe that’s for Baylor Homecoming, a group vacation, or just weekly game night — but keep those friendships going. College is a special time, and you likely won’t ever again have this much time available to build such deep friendships.
Best of luck, new Baylor graduates. Or, as we Bears say:
Sic ’em, Class of 2019!
