The month of Spring Break has finally arrived. Here are some updates from Baylor Admissions!
Spring Break is a great time for your students to visit Baylor. We offer several tour times throughout the day to accommodate visitors. Students can book a tour by registering online at baylor.edu/visit or by calling (254) 710-2407.
During March and April we will host events across the country for interested juniors and accepted seniors. These events, called Sic’em-ology, will include an overview of Baylor, details on applying, insight from a current student, and much more! If your students (juniors or accepted seniors) would like to attend a Sic’em-ology happening in your area, they can register to attend at baylor.edu/sicemology.
Academic Alert: Nursing
The Louise Herrington School of Nursing offers upper division (junior and senior) bachelor and master programs at the Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, a world-famous teaching and research hospital. Undergraduate nursing students pursue a bachelor’s degree in nursing while preparing for the registered nurse licensure. A student majoring in Nursing completes the first 66 credit hours in Waco, and then moves on to complete the final 65 hours at the Dallas campus. The school and all its programs have received full accreditation by The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and are approved by the Texas Board of Nurses.
Baylor Tradition of the Month: Bearathon
The Bearathon is a challenging half-marathon that is nicknamed “The Toughest Half in Texas.” The Bearathon serves as a fundraiser each spring to raise money for student scholarships. The race is open to the public, and more than 2,100 runners registered last year.
