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.
