Residential Campus in Baldwin City
An Inclusive Community of Dreamers & Achievers
The Baldwin City campus is home to a diverse, open-minded, and hyperinvolved student body. More than 90 percent of our students are involved in at least one extracurricular activity, which makes for a vibrant campus experience. In fact, student involvement is one of the top reasons students choose Baker. Not only do our students make fast friends through their activities, but they also excel after graduation: We’ve seen former Mungano officers win Pulitzer Prizes and former fraternity presidents lead Fortune 500 companies.
Don’t let the idyllic, small-town location fool you—Baker graduates are known for their big-city accomplishments.
