Throwback Thursday: The Freshmen Class

The first day of school is coming up soon for most kids in Texas, but we’ve already started classes here at Baylor.

Things look a bit different at Baylor these days. From the attire of students (not many long-sleeve white shirts and ties) to the diversity of the population, the student body has changed plenty in 60 years. But the drive of the students to learn and the dedication of our teaching faculty to give an excellent education has remained the same.
