Pro Ecclesia, Pro Texana! Baylor University is a private Baptist university in Waco, Texas. Baylor University was chartered in 1845 by the last Congress of the Republic of Texas. Baylor has many things for you to put on your "bucket list." Explore the wonders of Cameron Park. While you are there, check out Lovers Leap with someone special, climb up to "Circle Point," and see all of downtown Waco, or check out Miss Nellie's Pretty Place in the spring to see beautiful Bluebonnets and Indian Paintbrushes. There are so many incredible places to go during the day, but at night we encourage you to see the Rosenbalm Fountain when it lights up the Waco sky. Whether you want to see Cameron Park, eat pizza at Poppa Rollo's Pizza, or cheer for the Bears at McLane Stadium, there is something for everyone at Baylor University!
Did you know that Baylor University is known for their unique traditions and vibrant campus life? The most treasured tradition centers around their love for Dr. Pepper. The delicious beverage became the school’s drink in 1997, and they celebrate with a “Dr Pepper Hour” every Tuesday with free Dr.Pepper floats! The university is also nationally known for their non-profit contributions. Baylor students average 150,000 hours of community service every year. The first Habitat for Humanity chapter was founded at Baylor, it’s no wonder why Baylor prides themselves on helping others on an international scale. We encourage you to join the tailgate celebration before any football game and join in on the “Bear Walk” to see what true Baylor bear pride is!
