• Family Weekend brings parents, rain & a win to Waco

    A Baylor family together before the football game

    This past weekend brought an influx of both Baylor parents and rain to the Waco area during Family Weekend 2023 — much-needed visits for families who have been apart for a month now, and much-needed precipitation after a dry, hot summer in Central Texas.

    The rain didn’t dampen spirits, however, as families and students together enjoyed the usual array of activities. For those who couldn’t make it (or those who just want to relive it), here’s a look back at some of the highlights:

    First up, the “Meet the Faculty” luncheon brought together parents and professors over a meal at the Baylor Club:

    It just wouldn’t be a Baylor Family gathering without a Dr Pepper Hour — this time, at the new Hurd Welcome Center:

    Friday night of Family Weekend always means “After Dark,” the annual student talent show:

    And the evening concluded with a special Vertical worship service on campus:

    Saturday meant football, of course — starting with the Family Weekend Tailgate Experience:

    And (after a two-hour halftime lightning delay), it all wrapped up with Baylor football’s 30-7 win over Long Island:

    The next big campus event? #BaylorHomecoming — barely a month away!

    Sic ’em, Baylor Family!
