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.
