Hi, future Wildcats! I am Aftan, and am responsible for BU’s visit program!  At Baker, we provide more than one experience when you visit campus. Visit Days allow you to experience campus with a group of people to get a taste of what Baker has to offer. Individualized visits are also available where we coordinate an agenda just for you and your family based on what you want to see. We look forward to making Baker your home for the next four years!

From Wichita
Take I-35 to the US highway 59 N exit (exit 188) toward Lawrence. Merge onto  highway 59 N, and proceed north to the junction of 59 and highway 56 (about 10 miles). Go east on 56 to Baldwin City (about 5 miles).

University Admissions Assistants

Current Baker students, known as UAAs, are your guides for campus tours of our beautiful campus and will escort you to scheduled appointments. UAAs help the admissions office host group activities and discussions during group visit days. They love to share their experiences with you so bring your questions and curiosity about living the Wildcat life!
