Letter from the President: Welcome home, Crusaders

Welcome! Whether you are a new student experiencing college life for the first time, a returning upperclassman, or a graduate student back on campus after summer break, we are glad you are here.

Over the summer, our faculty and staff have been praying for you, preparing for you, and anxiously awaiting your arrival. Now that you are here, we are excited to kick off the 2013-2014 school year!

When you look around campus, you will notice many changes have taken place. The finishing touches are being added to Crusader Stadium, which will open with the inaugural game against Wesley College on September 21, and construction continues on the adjacent student union building set to open in January. Parking lots stand where buildings used to be, roads have been relocated, and
sidewalks replaced.

However, even though there are physical and structural changes taking place, the heart of Mary Hardin- Baylor remains the same through our mission of preparing students for leadership, service, and  faith-informed discernment in a global society, and vision of UMHB being the university of choice for Christian higher education in the Southwest.

As we start the new semester, I would like to encourage you to get involved in the many activities available to you at UMHB. The fall semester is full of opportunities to dive deeper into the Crusader culture and experience all that campus life has to offer. Go to as many events as you are able, try new activities, enjoy your classes, and make our traditions your own.

Mary Hardin-Baylor continues our commitment to grow, expand, and evolve in order to ensure that you will truly have an education for life and the experience of a lifetime.
I am excited about our future here at UMHB, and excited that our future is you.

Welcome home, Crusader!
