#BaylorHomecoming week is here!
In 1909, Baylor hosted the first collegiate homecoming celebration in the nation. This week — Oct. 10-12 — we again renew that tradition, as the Baylor Family returns to campus to “catch that Baylor spirit again,” as President Samuel Palmer Brooks famously wrote so long ago.
As usual, the festivities begin in earnest Thursday night with Mass Meeting and the first of four Pigskin Revue performances, followed Friday night by Reunion Class events, Singspiration, the Bonfire and Extravaganza. Saturday opens with the nation’s largest collegiate Homecoming Parade, followed by Baylor football hosting Texas Tech — with bowl-eligibility and a perfect record on the line! — at 3 p.m. at McLane Stadium (get your tickets now!).
In addition to the main events listed above, various schools and departments are hosting open houses and alumni gatherings; check the Homecoming calendar for complete event listings and details.
Sic ’em, Baylor Homecomers!
