Throwback Thursday: The social hour

When you spend enough time studying or working with the same people, you end up doing everything with them. That’s especially true on a college campus.

These days, Baylor students, faculty and staff can be seen gathering in cafeterias for lunch or grabbing a much-needed coffee at locations throughout the Texas Medical Center. Like it was in the 50s, the medical center is a like a small community, with restaurants and hotels all around – good for both medical personnel and visitors alike.
