• Diadeloso 2023: All the smiles, all the sunshine

    Students pose with the giant DIA letters

    For almost a century now, Diadeloso has provided Baylor students with a much-needed day off just as the spring semester reaches its crescendo — a day to rest and relax, to have fun with friends, and to make memories on campus that will last a lifetime.

    While yesterday may have been the chilliest Dia in recent memory — sweatshirts abounded until mid-afternoon, making the day feel more like Homecoming than Dia — the sunshine ultimately won out, and it became a glorious Texas spring day. Traditional Dia activities like music performances, inflatables (like this water slide) and various sporting competitions were mixed with newer favorites like an exotic animal petting zoo, an indoor skating rink and a silent disco.

    Live music took center stage (literally) on both Fountain Mall and the SUB Bowl, as local bands performed throughout the day. Stilt walkers and human statues also added a touch of levity as students waited their turns to enjoy various activities.

    Thanks to Baylor Chamber and all those who helped make #BaylorDia 2023 a success!

    Sic ’em, Diadeloso!
