Moving Wayland Forward


Our alumni are the backbone of our institution, and their achievements and contributions exemplify the true value of a Wayland education. We are incredibly proud of the incredible growth and engagement our alumni association has achieved. Our Alumni Association has played a key role in my personal and professional growth, from being a graduate in 2017 to now leading the masses. I'm grateful for the opportunities and connections that WBU has provided. This milestone is a true testament to the association's commitment to alumni success.

All of you have been an integral part of the university since its inception, ensuring that alumni remain connected to each other, the university, and their shared experiences. Through innovative programs, events, and initiatives, the association has created a supportive community that fosters lifelong relationships and career development opportunities.

Wayland Baptist University is a leading educational institution committed to academic excellence and the holistic development of students. With a proud legacy of more than 100 years, Wayland offers a wide range of undergraduate and graduate programs that equip students with the skills and knowledge needed for success in their chosen fields. The Wayland Alumni Association plays a central role in the university’s commitment to fostering lifelong connections among alumni and supporting their continued growth and success.

Thank you for continuing to be a part of what will continue to be a growing association. I encourage you to stay connected with fellow alumni and participate in the events planned, as well as to give when you can. There has never been a greater need for what Wayland Baptist University delivers, not just on its home campus in Plainview, but around the world. I invite you to join me in connecting with and giving to Wayland. It’s one of the best investments you’ll ever make

Be proud to don the blue and gold every chance you get! As the alma mater song begins, “On the Plains of Texas where the wind sings loud her name, Gateway to a world resplendent, far and wide her fame. Where the caprock’s firm foundation meets a sky of blue, Stands our Alma Mater, Wayland True!
