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.

Student Academic Success
Student Academic Success coordinates a variety of services for students seeking academic support: student athletes, international students, students with disabilities and those who want to enhance their learning skills.
Baker's Career Services staff work one-on-one with students to help them explore possible majors, part-time or summer internship positions, graduate school programs and full-time employment after graduation.
Student Health & Counseling
Baker's Student Health Center provides students with basic health care. A registered nurse is in the office on weekdays and on call weekends and evenings. A physician is on campus several times a week for emergency consultation.
Our Counseling Center strives to promote the health and well-being of the entire campus community. In addition to one-on-on and group counseling, the clinic staff offers a variety of programs for students throughout the year.
Baker University's residence halls are a safe, positive and enriching environment for your son or daughter's first experience away from home. Upper-level students are there to provide advice and counsel as students adjust to residence hall life, develop socially and become self-governing. Each member of the staff plans and coordinates educational and social activities throughout the academic year.
At Baker University, we believe that students learn best when they're challenged to reach beyond what is familiar. Living and learning among people from different backgrounds, cultures and countries, they learn the value of a diverse community as they work together toward a common goal.
Through their many community service projects, Baker students learn that true leadership is that which provides service to others. On campus, in Baldwin City and across the country, Baker students volunteer their time and resources to help create meaningful social change. Students learn to work with people from diverse backgrounds to identify and accomplish common goals.
