Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University’s enrollment climbed by nearly 300 students this year, buoyed by strong numbers at all three of its schools.

At the main campus in Baldwin City, 902 students were enrolled Wednesday during the first day of classes – a gain of 47 from last year.

The School of Professional and Graduate Studies based in Overland Park reports an enrollment of 2,170 – up 237 students from last year at this time.

The School of Nursing at Stormont-Vail Regional HealthCare in Topeka is operating at maximum capacity of 137 students again this year.

Official enrollments are not counted until the 20th day of classes, so as students drop and add during that period, the final number may change.
