Join Fellow Wildcats at these Upcoming Events
Alumni Weekend | May 19 – 21
Alumni Weekend kicks off with the Wildcat Classic Golf Tournament Friday morning, details to come soon. That evening visit with your classmates during the Alumni Weekend Social, a casual gathering at Overtime Sports Bar & Grill in Overland Park.
Also that evening is the Golden Alumni Reunion and Alumni Award Recognition Dinner, reserved for our golden alumni—anyone who graduated in 1967 or earlier—and their guests. We will present golden medallions to the class of 1967 and honor our Alumni Award recipients.
Welcome Baker Alumni
Over the years, I’ve seen Baker alumni do a lot of incredible things and heard even more stories that encapsulate the spirit of our alma mater, but I’m not sure there’s ever been a more exciting time to be part of the Baker family than right now. We’re building big businesses, exploring exciting new enterprises, leading major American cities, and — more than anything — we’re winning. As you’ll see on this site, our fellow alumni are getting awards and taking prominent positions in their fields at a whirlwind pace.
Here’s a quick overview of our new alumni site, where we intend to keep you engaged and excited about what is going on at Baker. Learn more about the Alumni Advisory Council and scholarships. View the Baker Proud archives. Use the alumni section to learn more about your alma mater and former classmates. If you would like to know more about Baker on a daily basis be sure to join our social networks.

“Often being a good leader is less about knowing the work, and more about knowing your people. The breadth of the Baker Experience provided me opportunities to learn the important life skills to become a successful leader at work and at home.”
JOHN THOMPSON '95
Founder and CEO of PayIt
Baker provided unique leadership opportunities at every turn, from Greek life to sports, to interterm along with faculty and staff that cared enough to challenge you while cultivating the natural leadership qualities we all have inside us.
JODI AKERS '92
SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, REAL ESTATE SECURITIES
LaSalle Investment Management | Chicago, Illinois
Baker gave me the confidence and discipline to learn the industry I chose (financial) and then to appreciate always learning and taking on more responsibility to help my company achieve their goals. As I help and contribute to the company, they give back to me in the form of promotion and higher-level responsibilities. Baker gave me the foundation to achieve where I am today (and I’m not done!).
