Baldwin City, Kan. — Baker University’s enrollment climbed to an all-time high of 3,338 students, buoyed by strong numbers at all of its campuses.

At the main campus in Baldwin City, 928 students were enrolled Wednesday during the first day of classes — a gain of 26 from last year’s first-day enrollment.

The School of Professional and Graduate Studies, and the School of Education graduate students based in Overland Park reported an enrollment of 2,265.

The School of Nursing at Stormont-Vail Regional HealthCare in Topeka is operating at maximum capacity of 145 students again this year.

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