Cru Kids has been such a great opportunity for our kids to fall in love with the place we call home. From tea parties to basketball games and even ornament craft days, we have loved watching our kids enjoy UMHB.

Tea with Miss MHB

Tea With Miss MHB

September 22

Dress up fancy and enjoy "tea," cookies, and fun activities with the reigning Miss Mary Hardin-Baylor and this year's pageant contestants.

“I loved the opportunity to get to meet the Cru Kids and have a fun event with them. This was a great time for Miss MHB to connect with alumni and their kids.” Karon Chapa, 2016 Miss Mary Hardin-Baylor.

The Miss Mary Hardin-Baylor Pageant is a long-standing tradition that provides a way for the university to showcase its students and their talents to the student body, family members and community. This event provides our Cru Kids with an opportunity to connect with these outstanding students and experience an amazing UMHB tradition from another perspective.

Cru Kids Day at Crusader Stadium

October 27

C – R – U – S – A –D – E – R –S!

Your Cru Kid will get to spend time on the field of Crusader Stadium with Crunk, the UMHB mascot and hangout with the UMHB football team and members of UMHB Cru Cheer and the Sader Belles.

This special event is part of our Homecoming festivities, and is the only opportunity that kids get to experience Crusader Stadium as our team does. Each of our Cru Kids will get special temporary tattoos, footballs, and pom-poms to help their Cru Spirit, and this is the perfect photo op for parents to get that TRUE CRU photo.
