Lifelong Connections

When you become part of Baker University, you join a community that stands on 152 years of history. Abraham Lincoln donated to Baker to help create a community of academic opportunity — a place
where excellence lives, students thrive and lifelong
connections begin.

A Culture of Learning

We embrace, empower and impart knowledge. We counsel, coach and mentor. Through all of this, students gain the competence and courage to think critically, speak freely and act responsibly.

Your college experience will be personal through:

  • Residential living
  • Activities and organizations
  • Greek life
  • Service learning
  • Spiritual life

Rigorous academics, a variety of extracurricular activities and endless leadership opportunities prepare you to venture confidently into a career or further academic endeavors.
