Baker University is a good choice for students who are looking for a small, private college with a strong focus on academics and experiential learning. The university offers a variety of majors and minors, and students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular activities. Baker University is also a good value for the tuition, and students can expect to receive personalized attention from professors.
I really enjoyed Baker. The psychology department was very small but strong. I had 3 main professor who I could literally go to for anything even outside of academics. There was always something to do on campus and downtown Baldwin had the cutest shops and restaurants.
I was pleasantly surprised within my first few months as a student at Baker. Until I came on a visit, I had never heard of it or seen the campus before. Soon enough I was hooked. While the campus is small, it doesn't feel tiny. It feels like a large school, with just small class sizes and thats a great feeling. With the smaller classes, the professors really get to know their students and you can see how much they want the students to succeed which is very reassuring. I have had incredible professors within my two years here who have dedicated time with me to ensure I know material which I credit to my success. Aside from academics, the culture here is special. Given there are a lot of athletes on campus, there is a bond between the teams that I don't hear about or see at other schools. We all go support at each other's events and it feels amazing to have your friends and peers cheering you on.
Baker is perfect for someone looking for a small, close-knit school with lots of opportunities. Despite its size, Baker has connections with many businesses and companies in the Kansas City area and makes those available to students. Professors are very approachable and know you by name. Baker has become my home.

Do not fall in love with one girl early because they will mess with your life, academically and everything.
That when there is nothing to do in Baldwin City, Lawrence and KU are very close by.
The lack of support for athletics and greek life. I'm on the XC and Track teams at Baker and it seem we never get the amount of support as other sports on campus such as football and basketball. Also, greek life at least on the fraternity side is dwindling. Coaches and certain teacher don't support/accept us. Incoming men have the typically stereotype stuck in their heads from the media, party houses that don't care about school. Guys are afraid to rush or become associated with the greek system.
A clear-minded individual. Open to ideas about both liberal and conservative ideas. Must be focused and ready for an ever-changing class structure. Also have great time management skills.
Someone who likes big cities and thousands of new people and really easy classes where the teachers wont know weather your there or not.
A welcoming, respectful, learning environment that prepares well rounded and rationale thinkers to enter the workforce.
Our school is best known for its academic quality. The classroom size here is outstanding. About half of my classes here have less than 10 people in them. Also, this school is known for its friendly atmosphere. Everybody on campus always has such a friendly attitude towards everybody and it makes people feel very welcome. Also, you feel like you are part of a family here. Everybody knows everybody, which makes it very easy to make friends and feel like you're part of a family.
The small class sizes allow the professors to engage the students individually and give them one on one help.
When I tell my friends about Baker Univeristy one of the first things I tell them is how friendly camous is! When you are walking to classes People will say hello, even if you dont know them. It is a small campus and coming from a small town it is something I appreciate. I will also tell my friends about how the proffessors are willing to work with you on whatever you need help with. They want you to succceed and to do your best!
The class sizes and the teachers care for how well students do because they are both a very important part of ones education.
The most frustrating thing about Baker is the way the nursing school is away from the main campus. It makes nursing students stress about the financial situation they will have to incounter once they transfer to the nursing school.
My classmates are very tight knit which makes the baldwin campus special, this year we've faced a lot of tragedy and it has only brought us all together.
Academics are Baker University's strong point. When you look at the price tag of tuition at Baker, it can seem overwhelmingly absurd. However, once you get here, you realize that you are getting every ounce of education that you are paying for. In my two years of being here, I have never regretted my decision to study here. I almost always leave the classroom feeling like I learned something useful. But, the learning doesn't stay in the classroom, it extends to real life. While in school, away from your parents and oftentimes, the news, I think we tend to forget about the reality of the world around us. Baker doesn't let that happen though; reality is brought into the classroom and that's when the true learning begins. Quite often, school falls into a study-and-forget routine and the only thing that matters is the here-and-now grade; but, here, I have real-life, applicable knowledge.
