Recapping #Baylor175: A look back at Baylor’s 175th birthday celebrations
Baylor was chartered by the Republic of Texas on Feb. 1, 1845 — which means that this past month marked Baylor’s 175th birthday! That’s a lot of years of mixing academic excellence with Christian commitment — certainly enough years to merit a month-long celebration. Here are some of the ways Baylor celebrated its 175th on campus:
We turned our men’s basketball game on Feb. 1 into a birthday party, complete with party hats, a giant cake, Silos Baking Co. cupcakes, and most importantly, a win over TCU.

We talked to alumni about their Baylor memories and stories.
Heck, we even created an entire museum exhibit to celebrate.
Needless to say, it was a pretty great month. Thanks for everyone in the Baylor Family who celebrated along with us. Here’s to another 175!
Sic ’em, Bears!
