#BaylorHomecoming week is here!
In 1909, Baylor hosted the first collegiate homecoming celebration in the nation. This weekend, 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 a century ago.
It all begins tonight with Homecoming Worship on Fountain Mall, followed by Dinner with the Livingstones on Tuesday. The festivities continue Thursday night with Mass Meeting and the first of four Pigskin Revue performances, followed Friday night by the 50-year class reunion, Singspiration, the Royal & Pure Homecoming Stroll-Off, Bonfire, Pep Rally and Extravaganza. Saturday opens with the nation’s largest collegiate Homecoming Parade, followed by Baylor football hosting Kansas at 11 a.m. at McLane Stadium (limited tickets are still available!).
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.
(Can’t make it back for Homecoming? You can still join in the festivities, even from afar! Watch the parade live via KCEN on the Baylor Facebook page Saturday; and find a watch party near you for the football game on Saturday!)
Sic ’em, Baylor Homecomers — welcome home!
