Many students choose to continue their on-campus experience by living in an Upper-Division Community or renewing their membership in a Living-Learning Center or Residential College.
Residential Colleges are faculty-led communities that foster academic excellence, intensive faculty-student interaction, and rich culture steeped in Baylor tradition. The three Residential Colleges at Baylor offer a special sense of community through community dinners, morning and evening prayer, and Master's Teas hosted by the Residential College Faculty Steward of the community.
