What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

In order to find the right school, you need to take your time. So don't wait until the last minute to start searching for your school, make sure you visit a few times, sit in on a class, and take advantage of any and every scholarship opportunity possible! Make sure you make the most of your college experience because you will never again have the freedom you have while you are there, and although skipping a class every now and again isn't going to kill your GPA, you will have to start being more responsible for the choices you make; after all you are at college to get an education, but don't forget that you are there to gain life experiences as well so get involved and have a little fun!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would've realized all of the loans I was going to have to take out once I got here

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who always needs something going on, this school is very small so sometimes you just have to be happy not doing much!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure you find a college where the environment, professors and students, make you feel at home. Feeling at home will be the most important part to making the most of a college experience. For this to happen you must not be afraid to get out there and be yourself. When you go on a college visit, do not be afraid to participate in any events that are happening that day.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That when there is nothing to do in Baldwin City, Lawrence and KU are very close by.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

That I do varsity sports and hang out with a lot of volleyball players.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Being a liberal arts university and allowing students to do multiple activities and recieve multiple departmental scholarships.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

1.) Choose a school that you feel like it will be a smooth transition. 2.) Explore all scholarship opportunities at all schools you are interested in (private schools really aren't that expensive with scholarships). 3.) BE VERY INVOLVED! You are given one college opportunity, so make the most of it. Don't overwelhm yourself or underwehlm. You can aways quit anything if it effects your school work. 4.) Greek life may not be for everyone, but rush to meet people! 5.) Don't procrastinate... seriously! 6.) Try many different study techniques. 7.) Take advise from upper classmen.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

That I would be as involved as I am and that college isn't as hard as they make it out to be.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell parents and students to not be afraid of change. Going to college is a brand new chapter in the students' life. There are going to be many changes and adaptations that are going to have to occur for both the parent and the student. Being open to new ideas is the key to being succesful in college. When looking for that perfect place to attend college, think of three things: 1. Can you picture yourself there? 2. Are the people you meet (students, staff/faculty) dependable and trustworthy? 3. Is this somewhere you can be yourself? All of these things are very important when looking for a place to spend the next 4 years of your life. Keep an open mind, and don't be afraid of things your not used to.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person that shouldn't attend this school is people who don't want to work hard and apply themselves.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

When you arrive at the right campus for you, you will know. However that does not mean that when you go to the very first campus and you love it that you stop there because you will more than likely love every campus...it's just which one you love the most.

What's unique about your campus?

The class sizes and the teachers care for how well students do because they are both a very important part of ones education.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who likes big cities and thousands of new people and really easy classes where the teachers wont know weather your there or not.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't just got for a college without researching it first. And don't go for your very first choice. Choosing a college is a tough decision and if you make the wrong choice you might waste your time and money at a college that isn't right for you.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone that isn't willing to work hard and keep up with their school work. If they just want to come to college and party, Baker is the wrong place.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

My sorority and my friends. I love our basketball games also.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

Its friendly and accomodating, socially, athletically, and academically. The professors get to know you, push you, and want you to succeed. Each student is a valued asset to the university, and many opportunities are given to them that may not be avaliable at other institutions.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Ask questions, visit the campus, review the expenses, all the basic stuff. But more importantly, is get in touch with alumni, professors, students, and employers who are familar and can really explain the value and experience that set the university apart. If you can't do these things, maybe the university has something to hide. Once in college continue to do these things. Seek out advice, involvment, and challenge. The experience is what you make it, and the more you seek out, and the more challenges you tackle, the better your education becomes, and the more useful it is.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Start early. There is nothing more stressing then trying to cram visits in the spring of your senior year of high school. The earlier you can get your selection out of the way, the more you can enjoy your last semester in high school. Once you get there, be yourself. You will almost always be able to identify with someone or some group, you just have to be willing to put yourself out there and look.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

The value of completing long term projects in stages, not last minute.

What kind of person should attend this school?

One who, upon visiting campus, feels like this is a place for them. It is not for everyone, however for those that find Baker University appealing, it is likely to be just what they are looking for. A campus visit will tell you these things.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The first piece of advice I would give parents and students is to never disregard a school because you have your mind set on another one. There is always a chance you won't get accepted into the school you have your mind set on and you may just find a school that you like better and fits your needs to a greater extent. College is about finding the proper balance between education and social skills. It is important to never forget the true reason you are attending school, to get an education that will take you places. However, it is also important to be social, the social connections and skills that you make in college are the ones that will help you get to the places you wish to go. Be open to a change in majors and career options. If a major doesn't work out, don't be affraid to say you like another major more because it will lead you to what you will be doing for the rest of your life. There is nothing wrong will wanting to do something different.

What's unique about your campus?

The people at Baker are wonderful. I have made friends that will last a life time. Upperclassmen are so welcoming of the incoming freshman and transfer students that the transition to a new setting is easy. It's hard to move away from everything you have known and start new, but here I didn't have any issues because the upperclassmen took me in and showed me the ropes. I wouldn't trade my friends at Baker for anything in the world.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Baker is in such a small town that there aren't too many things to do on the weekend that are non-greek oriented. Not everyone likes to go to parties or likes to party every weekend and it becomes expensive to travel to larger towns in the surrounding area to find something to do.
