Premier Private University in Kansas

Residential Campus

College of Arts & Sciences | School of Education undergraduate programs


Small university. Big possibilities.

At Baker, learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom: lively discussions and challenging course work, research and pre-professional conferences, leadership opportunities, study abroad, and student clubs.

Despite our small size—Baker graduates are known for their big accomplishments. Fortune 500 CEOs, New York Times best-selling authors, a Pulitzer Prize winner, and a Super Bowl champion all proudly claim Baker, the first university in Kansas, as their alma mater.

Campus Life

Connected on Campus

Baker’s student experience is nothing short of exceptional. Between their traditions walk as freshmen to their walk across the stage at commencement, they compete together as Wildcats, raise funds for philanthropies through their sororities and fraternities, and work together to make a difference on campus. They build connections that last a lifetime.
