Marrs McLean Science Building Courtyard is the place to be March 22 from 4-6 p.m. Mark your calendars! Baylor School of Education is celebrating with live music from In10City Band, fun giveaways, games, fantastic prize drawings, George’s catering, a photo booth and more!

March 22, 1919, is the actual date that the Baylor Board of Trustees voted to create the School of Education as a separate academic unit dedicated to preparing educators.

The first party-goers to arrive will receive cool, rugby-style T-shirts and swag bags stuffed with water bottles, pop sockets, and more. Come early, because once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Those who play our “SOE Timeline Trivia” game in the Marrs McLean Science lobby will be entered in a contest to win an iPad and Air Pods. SOE students are eligible for additional drawings for amazing prizes. All SOE students should check their email!

The prize drawings will be at around 5:45 p.m., and all entrants MUST BE PRESENT to win. Plan accordingly!
