Here’s the Baylor Student's Guide to Making Waco, Texas Home!

Valley Mills H-E-B


Why We Love It: You can’t beat the location of this H-E-B. Just minutes from Baylor’s campus, it is arguably the most popular grocery store for students to visit. They have everything your student needs for a successful week of cooking at home.

The Laundry Room

Why We Love It: This full service laundromat includes a drive-thru dry cleaning option, perfect for students needing to clean their formal or business attire. It is cheap and quick, and offers regular washers and dryers as well.

Premier ER & Urgent Care


Why We Love It: Just across the highway from Baylor’s campus, this ER and Urgent Care is readily available for students. Whether they are sick and it is after Baylor clinic’s hours, or they are injured and need immediate care, Premier ER is the place to go.

Sun Valley Walmart

Why We Love It: Baylor students may not know that this nicer and newer Walmart exists less than 10 minutes from campus. It is another great option for groceries, but also any other items students may need outside of their food for the week.

Discount Tire


Why We Love It: If your low tire pressure light is on, Discount Tire offers a free drive-thru service to re-fill your tires. Their services are quick and efficient, and their employees are full of helpful explanations.
