WACO, Texas - On Thursday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. CT, Baylor Athletic Director Tom Stanton will make a special visit to chat about the upcoming year.

Under the guidance of Stanton, the Baylor athletic department has experienced unprecendented growth in capital improvements. Baylor has spent more than $30 million on new and renovated construction under his leadership.

While putting Baylor on par with the nation's finest from a facilities standpoint, Stanton has also gone to great lengths to make the Bears competitive from a coaching perspective. He has hired such nationally renowned individuals as football coach Kevin Steele, men's basketball coach Dave Bliss, women's basketball coach Kim Mulkey-Robertson and softball coach Glenn Moore.

Stanton has also been instrumental in helping the University establish new attendance records. In 2000-2001, Ferrell Center attendance marks were set in both men's basketball (91,421) and women's basketball (55,419). A school record of 95,367 was established at the Baylor Ballpark in 2001. In 1995, football set an all-time best with a 40,543 average per game at Floyd Casey Stadium.

Stanton won't hit the chat room until Thursday, Sept. 13 at 1 p.m. CT. Feel free to drop him some questions here and we'll save them for his arrival.
