Gates Hall at Wayland Baptist University


At Wayland Baptist, we have a very clear definition of “family.” When you visit our campus    in Plainview, you’ll see what we mean.

You will find an environment in which each individual’s talents, interests, and dreams are embraced and cultivated. You can get a firsthand look at the physical surroundings and facilities in which you will excel. And you can discover how very special being a part of
The Wayland Family
can be.

You have several options to consider when planning your visit to Wayland Baptist. Make your selection from one or all of the following:

Personalized Campus Tours

It's best to reserve your tour time a few days in advance so we can make your day with us as informative and fulfilling as possible. Your personalized visit will provide the perfect opportunity to tour the campus, meet current students, speak with professors, meet with financial aid counselors, try our food, and visit residence halls.

Private School Day - October 8

As many of our students will tell you, the transition from private school to Wayland is so natural and easy. This day is designed for whole private schools or classes to come visit. We'll even have a special session just for private school administrators. But if you want to just come on your own, we'd love to have you!

Reserve your spot for private school day!




Homeschool Day - October 29
