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 2022-2023 is: Know Your Neighbor!
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
"The NSE provides a system for greeting, getting to know and building a community foundation for a continued conversation in and out of the classroom over the undergraduate years"
"I really enjoy teaching NSE courses because I see, first-hand, the impact that the experience is having on students."
"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."
