Baker's residential campus is a tight-knit community where most students live in a residence hall, on-campus apartment or a Greek chapter house.
At Baker, students quickly become part of a community and make friendships that last a lifetime.
Parents have a special opportunity to visit their children on Family Weekend, held in September.
Parents of Baker students can learn about different services available to their students including Career Services and Residence Life.
As the parent of a Wildcat, there will be many opportunities to share in your student's successes.
At Baker, students learn while surrounded by people of different backgrounds, challenging them to reach beyond the familiar.

1 - 4 p.m. | Quayle Bible Collection Tours
Baker University's Quayle Bible Collection brings together significant Bibles and related materials. The current exhibit is Illuminating the Bible: Woodcuts and Engravings. Since ancient times, book texts were made more vivid and engaging with miniature paintings, pen-and-ink drawings, gold leaf and even doodles. This was a time-consuming process resulting in one-of-a-kind books. But with the advent of the printing press, lovely illustrations could be mass produced right along with texts using woodcuts and, later, engravings. Some of the finest artists of every era were engaged in book production. Illuminating the Bible shows how artists through the ages have interpreted and supplemented the biblical text.
