Explore Baylor University
Baylor University is one of the finest colleges in the country, and the school’s beautiful Waco campus is as distinguished as its academic programs. Beyond just touring the grounds and taking in landmarks like the Robbins Chapel or the bear habitat, a handful of campus attractions are especially deserving of your time in Waco. For starters, pay a visit to the two libraries on the south side of campus, each home to its own special collections. The Armstrong Browning Library is the site of the largest assembly of material by poets Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, while the nearby Carroll Library has the Texas Collection, a stunning archive of Texas history-related books, photos, maps, and other materials.
On the north side of campus, The Mayborn Museum hosts a fascinating array of exhibits in natural science, history, geology, archeology, and paleontology. Keep going north, just beyond the Brazos River, and you’ll find McLane Stadium, the “den” of Baylor’s high-scoring football team. The stadium also stages a number of other exciting events throughout the year, including RibFest and a popular, but grueling, half-marathon.
