In a word, Baylor's campus is stunning. Great care
has been applied over the years to maintain and preserve
670 acres of land and turn-of-the century buildings that
overlook the Tennessee River gorge.
Upper School classes are spread out among various academic
buildings that are all within walking distance. In a more
secluded section of campus you'll find the baseball
and softball diamonds, soccer fields, a crew boat launch,
a cross country loop, mountain bike trails, a nature preserve,
a ropes course, a climbing wall, a golf short course, and
some of the finest indoor/outdoor tennis facilities in the
country. Individually, each element of our campus is beautiful,
safe, and functional. Together they are nothing less than
Progress & Commitment
Great attention has also been applied to progress –
in the past 20 years we have added a sports complex with
a new indoor 50-meter pool and wrestling facility, new
dining facilities, a new science and technology building,
a fine arts complex, a girls dormitory, the area's first LEED certified residential hall, and a chapel. In the fall of 2010, two new learning spaces opened on the second floor of Hedges Library, as part of Baylor’s $1.6 million “21st Century Library” renovation. The remodeled Sterling Auditorium features a SMART Board, expansive views of the Tennessee River, and modular furniture that can easily be reconfigured to meet the needs of the class or group using the space. An additional renovated space on the second floor also features a SMART board as well as new computers. The spacious new $1 million dollar Von D. Oehmig Sports Performance Center also opened in 2010, providing space and equipment for varsity athletic training while opening additional workout areas for all Baylor students, faculty, and staff.
