Event Highlights

Welcome and Devotions - President Lowell Haines ’75, JD, along with his wife Sherry (Korfmacher ’76), and Taylor students will be providing a special welcome just for grandparents.

Campus Tours - A great way to see an overview of the campus, driving tours leave at 1:00 and 2:00 and include a brief walk-through of the LaRita Boren Campus Center, which opened in April 2016.

Taylor Theatre - Before the world fell in love with Hello, Dolly!, there was The Matchmaker. Cunning, crafty, and thoroughly modern, Dolly Gallagher Levi knows a good catch when she sees one. So when the wealthy Horace Vandergelder hires her to find him a wife, Dolly doesn't need to look far to find his perfect mate. The Matchmaker is an uproarious romp that reminds us to embrace the unexpected in our lives.
