HAS IT REALLY BEEN THAT LONG?
People generally celebrate their wedding anniversaries on their 25th and 50th years.
My college friends and I celebrated our 60th reunion this past April 19-20, 2013.
We came to Mary Hardin Baylor College, a Baptist college for women, in 1953. Enrollment was a depressing 300 and many of our facilities were in need of repair.
Today our alma mater, now co-ed, boasts 4,000 plus students and state of the art buildings offering career paths suited for the 21st century.
One aspect, however, remains unchanged. It was a Christ-centered institution in 1953 and is a Christ-cenetered institution in 2013.
So we sing with gusto: Up with the Purple, the Gold, and the White
High o’er our college tower
Forth from your portals
They step in their might
Men and women great in power
Yes, we come from old Baylor,
Her loving sons and her women true
And proudly each one holds the memory
Of Baylor College, for we love you!
