Baylor student government to relaunch Waco Passport program

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor's student government is launching their Waco Passport program again and this time it includes more businesses and students.

The program first launched two years ago. It was only available to Baylor students, but now it also includes students from McLennan Community College and Texas State Technical College.

The Waco Passport aims to encourage students to explore the city by shopping at one of the 16 participating locations. They get a booklet with all of the stores and if a student shops there they receive a stamp in their booklet like a passport. Once a student has filled up their booklet they can turn it in to their school for a chance to win prizes including gift cards and an iPad.

Baylor's External Vice President Lexington Holt says she hopes the program unites all college students in Waco.

"My hope for it is that students from all three colleges are going to see each other out and end up being friends and start incorporating each other in their daily lives, that way it's not three separate entities, we just end up being this collective group of students," said Holt. 

Holt also believes this could have a positive impact on the local economy by attracting more students to those businesses.
