“For Church, For Texas.” Private Baptist university Baylor, located in Waco, TX, prides itself on both its Christian values and its academics, offering its 14,000 undergraduates over 120 major emphases of study and over 75 minors across its 12 colleges and sub-schools. As Baylor Bears, students get to enjoy a break from study through the annual Dia del Oso “Day of the Bear” festival, but also celebrate among their recent accomplishments the Symphony Orchestra’s first place finish in the 2016 American Prize Competition and a second place finish in the 64-team national Undergraduate Moot Court Tournament. Its vibrantly wooded campus provides the ideal environment for concentration and study, although about 14 percent of the undergraduate body chooses to live off-campus in one of Baylor’s 12 active fraternities or 9 sororities. Popular intramural options include ultimate Frisbee, table tennis and even Wallyball, and famous alumni include ventriloquist Jeff Dunham and screenwriter John Lee Hancock. Attendees can’t help but find themselves immersed in Baylor’s many traditions, while ultimately graduating with a newfound confidence that they made the right choice for their higher education.
