Baylor University is a private Christian University and a nationally ranked research institution. Chartered in 1845 through the efforts of Baptist pioneers, Baylor is the oldest continually operating University in Texas and welcomes students from more than 80 countries. The Rosenbalm Fountain is the centerpiece of a beautification and improvement project that has revived a part of campus central to many of Baylor’s great traditions. At the heart of the campus the newly dedicated fountain feature several plume nozzles that arch up towards the bowl and several cascades that shoot vertically from providing white noise to compliment the ambiance of the gorgeous campus.
The project was made possible by an $8 million gift announced in July 2014 by Dr. Thomas J. Rosenbalm, B.A. ’50, M.A. ’51, of Houston, in honor of his late parents, Clarence and Claudia Rosenbalm, of Bartlett, Texas. Dr. Rosenbalm’s parents and sister, Dorothy, shaped his life and helped support his path to success as a prominent Houston physician.
The beautification project has made this vibrant campus an even more welcoming community for more than 16,000 students and visitors.
