The Baylor Line and Slime Caps
Established in 1970, Baylor University’s student body carries on the tradition at every home football game. New students join together at the south end of McLane Stadium, donning yellow football jerseys with their graduation year and running, as one, across the field to form a welcoming tunnel for the Baylor Bear Football team. These students represent That Good Old Baylor Line: the legacy of generations of alumni who stretch backward and forward, carrying on the traditions we hold so dear at Baylor. Another way new students are represented is through the wearing of their Slime Caps, which they receive on Slime Night early in the fall semester.
Traditionally, students receive their line jerseys at Line Camp, an extended Orientation experience designed specifically for new students to provide them with a welcoming environment to experience Baylor while building relationships.
Gifts to the Baylor Line Camp Scholarship Fund will help provide this opportunity to an incoming student who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford this experience.
