Baker University welcomed one of the largest incoming classes in school history, 308 new students, to begin the fall semester on August 23.

“The entire community came together and prioritized enrollment,” said Dr. Lynne Murray, Baker University president. “I’m so proud of what we have accomplished together.”

The total ties the school’s highest incoming class set in 2009.

“Baker University is the top-ranked private university in Kansas,” said Danielle Yearout, vice president of enrollment and marketing. “This reputation of excellence is why we have seen our enrollment grow recently, culminating in another group of students ready to become scholars and leaders.”
