The HBU Golden Circle was established as a way to honor HBU alumni who attended the University fifty years ago or more. All alumni are eligible, even if you did not graduate from Houston Baptist College or Houston Baptist University.

Members are honored with a Golden Circle Celebration which is held on campus each spring. The event includes a special guest speaker, campus tour, and lots of opportunities for fellowship. The highlight of the day is a special presentation of “Golden Anniversary” diplomas and pin to the fifty-year class. Anyone from the classes of 1967-1970 who have not previously been inducted can take part this year!
