Tips to Succeed
- Ask questions in class.
- Fight like mad against a bad grade.
- Go to class-there is a 75 percent attendance policy.
- If a class you have to have to graduate isn't offered or has a time conflict, you can petition to take another one in its place that still fulfils your requirements.
- Make friends with your professors-it's easy, and they will recommend what classes and who to take in your major field of study.
- Mix your tough classes with your easy ones-never double up.
- Pay attention to rumors concerning classes-they're usually right.
- Pull all-nighters with company-they'll help you stay awake.
- Surf the BIN before you decide to come here-the students there are honest.
- Take your electives and HPs pass/fail-unless you need the GPA booster.
- Wait until you're a sophomore or junior to Rush.
Did You Know?
- Second floor of Moody Library hosts a 24-hour "dedicated noisy section" and group study suites, which you can check out with your school ID. Another great place to study is the International House of Pancakes right across the street from campus. The noise in the background is easy to drown out, and unless it's really busy, they'll let you have a booth at the back all to yourself with an endless supply of coffee.
- On a Thursday in the spring of every year, Baylor has an all-University play day called Diadeloso. The literal Spanish translation is "day of the bear." This day off from classes started in 1931 and includes tons of food, fun, and activities such as a guest hypnotist, a step-show performance, video game tournaments, intramural contests, and even blow-up fun with a moon-walk.
- Baylor begins every year for incoming students with Welcome Week, which consists of an orientation and a meet-and-greet on moving day. Welcome Week also sets up upperclassmen-guided tours for freshmen and transfer students to show them around campus, discuss different aspects of life at Baylor, and educate students on the various social, religious, and athletic functions of campus life. A lot of life-long friends are met and made at Welcome Week.
