Get a Head Start on the Semester

Classes begin on Monday, but it's not too late to get a head start. Check out your Blackboard account to see which classes have been activated. Look over each syllabus and begin thinking about what you will be discussing in each course. Be sure you know where your classrooms are located -- and, most importantly, the closest parking if you are driving to campus. Give yourself some extra time for the first week by arriving early on campus. A good parking space is often very difficult to find, but if you are early, you stand a better chance. Be sure you know about the Baylor shuttle service.

Welcome to Fall 2011 at Baylor

As you begin your Baylor career, don't miss the opportunity to experience all the traditions of Welcome Week. It's not just for freshmen. Here is the link to the transfer student activities. Be sure to check out both sides of the brochure. It is loaded with interesting information about where to go, what to do. Don't miss the Friday evening (6:30) faculty dinner in the Stone Room of the Ferrell Center. It's a great way to meet a lot of people who will be involved in your success at Baylor. You'll hear more about it from your BU 1000 leader.

Prehealth Advising Workshops - BSB, D109

Premed, Predent, Prevet and Preoptometry students: Friday, Sept 24 from 4-5 p.m. OR Tuesday, Sept 28 from 5-6 p.m.

Prepharmacy, Prephysician Assistant, Prephysical Therapy and Preoccupational Therapy students: Monday, Sept 27 from 4-5 p.m. OR 5-6 p.m.

Don't be the mad bear who registers for an inappropriate class and then finds that it is a wasted class because it doesn't advance his or her degree.

BU1000 - All there is to know about Baylor

Welcome New Transfer students. You know about BU1000 because you have registered for Chapel and see the additional BU1000 meeting also attached to your schedule. This 6-week small group is designed to help you transition into the Baylor culture with as little disruption to your life as possible. It will kick off during Welcome Week with a dinner for all new transfers. Not only will you get a free meal, but you will have the opportunity to meet lots of Baylor resource staff and your BU1000 leader. As we plan for that event, you can help by sending in questions about how Baylor works. Just reply to this post with your own comment and we will get answers for you and incorporate this information into the BU1000 curriculum. If you are confused and wondering, you can bet others are as well.

New Prexy Officially Welcomed by the NoZe Brotherhood

Were you surprised when Baylor's newest president donned a pair of glasses with a big nose? The NoZe Brotherhood is one of Baylor's oldest traditions. You should read about it so that, if confronted with their antics on campus, you are not unduly alarmed. As you acclimate yourself to the university, you owe it to yourself to check out some of the 250 chartered campus organizations. The best way to start feeling at home in the Baylor family is to find a group of kindred spirits and join in their activities. By the way, did you know there is a Kayak Polo club?
