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.
Practical Skills for Any Field
Our foundation in the liberal arts develops graduates who leave college as versatile decision-makers, adept at thinking critically, and connecting details with the big picture. They are able to listen and speak, create, and innovate. They are prepared for whatever the future may hold.
You have questions and we have answers.
From scheduling your first campus visit to finalizing your admissions application, the Office of Admissions is your partner every step of the way.
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.
