New Student Experience
The New Student Experience combines courses and programs designed to help students transition to the rigorous academic environment at Baylor.
The New Student Experience theme for 2023-2024 is: Effort - Developing Talent & Student Success.
New students will become active learners who take ownership of their academic path, developing critical thinking skills and a passion for lifelong learning.
New students will begin to foster the virtue of cultural humility by reflecting on the unique nature of cultures (racial, ethnic, gender, socio-economic, religious, and ability).
New students will explore spiritually formative opportunities at Baylor through Christian worship, faith practices, and the witness of faculty, staff, and students.
New students should engage in learning opportunities that allow them to analyze their holistic wellbeing.
Why I TeachSee More Profiles
"I teach and NSE course because I so appreciate our students and want them to reach their potential and succeed... and I feel I know what it takes to be successful... and I want to share those thoughts and experiences with our students first hand."
"I have always loved teaching first-year students, especially in their first semester. They are eager to learn, eager to work, and eager to think in new ways."
"I do NSE because Baylor did it for ME when I was a freshmen from a small central Texas high school, first in my family to attend college, and wondering what in the world God had called me to do."
