Student Success Resources
We recognize that even the smartest, most passionate students need and deserve help and support to reach their full potential. Baylor College of Medicine provides academic and support services to promote academic excellence, health and wellness, and student engagement.
Beyond the classroom and the clinic, our students have robust opportunities to explore other interests and balance other aspects of their lives whether raising a family, honing musical or artistic talents, competing in sports, or leading community service initiatives.
The College sponsors many activities for students ranging from formal ceremonies and award programs to social events, community service events, and special activities. There is an athletic facility on campus – the Baylor Wellness Center (Baylor login required) – as well as intramural leagues for those interested in sports.
Our location in the heart of Houston, the nation’s fourth-largest city, provides many opportunities to pursue outside interests as well. Hermann Park, next door to the Texas Medical Center, offers trails, a public golf course, the Houston Zoo and an outdoor amphitheater. To the west are Rice University and the Rice Village Shopping Center. Directly north are the Museum District’s 18 art organizations, and just five miles further north is downtown, the hub of Houston’s restaurant, clubs, theaters, and sports stadiums.
As the mother of a toddler, I've had to learn to balance my school responsibilities with the requirements of my life outside of school. The staff in Student Success Services have been really helpful with this.
