Daily Campus Visits

We want to share our special community with you!

Come to campus for a personalized visit where you can meet with your admissions counselor, a professor in your field, and a coach of your sport. You also will get a customized campus tour from a current BU student. If you choose, you can also learn more about Baker’s performing arts participation, religious or multicultural life opportunities, or fraternity and sorority life. Thursday-morning visits provide a chance to attend the optional informal chapel service.
