Alumni Weekend Was Double the Fun!

Baylor doubled down for this year's Alumni Weekend, with folks celebrating two years worth of reunions at 30 reunion parties taking place throughout the city. 

It all got started on Friday, with 19 teams enjoying the annual golf tournament at Black Creek. The watch party at State of Confusion was up next, followed by Saturday's campus festivities that included a picnic on Rike, campus tours, a Baylor History 101 session led by Bo Chamberlain '90, and lots of family-friendly activities.  The induction of new Half-Century Club Members at a special dinner in Guerry Dining Hall took place Saturday evening, and the weekend concluded with the Head of School Awards and Memorial Chapel Service on Oct. 3.
