Over the last few years, Waco has undergone dramatic changes, and Baylor has been an intentional partner. McLane Stadium certainly influences perceptions of those who pass through on the interstate. But more is in the works. Much more. After enduring decades of empty talk about downtown development, a few key leaders are finally making good on the promise. Yes, a big part of the transformation is the Chip and Joanna effect. But that’s an incomplete interpretation of what is happening here. Baylor graduates are sticking around and opening businesses like never before. The city is luring alumni who own large businesses to bring high-paying jobs to Waco and appeal to graduates. Waco has the rugged energy of a boomtown, on the verge of regaining the status and promise it hasn’t had since the devastating tornado of 1953.
The first issue of The Baylor Line magazine was published in 1946. Since then, our organization has published hundreds of issues that inform and engage alumni with the university they love.
Over the years, our magazine has featured compelling stories about alumni who are making their mark on the world. We have broken investigative pieces, profiled famous grads, and worked hard to keep alumni engaged with what is happening at Baylor. The Line is committed to journalistic integrity, freedom of the press, and stories that bring beauty and truth to our audience.
