UNIVERSITY ADMISSIONS ASSISTANTS

University Admissions Assistants are the bright, smiling undergraduates who lead campus tours for prospective Baker students and their families and escort them to scheduled appointments. They also arrange overnight visits for prospective students and host group activities and discussions during the visits.

Because UAAs are such a visible and important part of the Office of Admissions, the team consists of a select group of students. UAAs must know the history, traditions and stories that make Baker such a unique and special place so they can help prospective students choose the college that is best for them. UAAs are available for events such as BU Visit Days, Scholarship Competition Day, and other campus events as assigned.

The ideal UAA candidate posses the following characteristics:

  • Enthusiasm for Baker University
  • Pride in Baker University
  • Flexibility
  • Sense of humor
  • Strong interpersonal communication skills
  • Sincere concern for others
  • Ability to motivate self and others
  • Sense of responsibility
  • Ability to be a team player
  • Ability to honor commitments
  • Ability to communicate maturely and effectively with diverse groups of people
  • Ability to manage time effectively
  • Interest in student activities, organizations and events

To Apply

Applications are available in early April. Interviews are conducted in late April, and UAA selections are made at the beginning of May.

STUDENT EXPERIENCE

Conner | Olathe, Kansas

“As a UAA I cherish the ability to show potential incoming students just what Baker University is all about. From fantastic relationships and memories formed in and outside of the classroom, being a UAA allows me to express my gratitude in all that Baker University has given me. Subsequently, hopefully making that incoming student’s first experience at Baker as great as mine was. Being a UAA brings great joy as I come across individuals from all different backgrounds and receive the chance to show them what home looks like and potentially turn Baker into their home, too. Sko Cats!”

Itzel | Garden City, Kansas

“To me, being a UAA means having the opportunity to give potential students a sneak peak of what it would be like to attend a small university, in a small town, where professors actually know you. I think often times there is a negative stigma placed on small universities, so as a UAA I love seeing potential students’ faces light up with comfort when they not only hear, but also see for themselves what it would truly mean to become a Baker Wildcat.”

Nick | Kansas City, Kansas

“I love the opportunity to meet incoming students and their families every day. I remember when I was in their shoes not so long ago and how excited I was to visit Baker University. It makes my day to see incoming students with that same level of excitement. That’s what I love about being a UAA.”

Lily | Snohomish, Washington

“I absolutely love being a UAA. Every day I get to meet new people and make connections that will carry future wildcats into their lives on campus. Nothing makes me happier than when I hear that a student I gave a tour to committed to BU!”
