Hi, future Wildcat! I’m excited for you to visit Baker University! At Baker, you are not just a number—and we want you to experience that individualized treatment from the first time you step on campus. Come for a personalized visit where you pick the date and we cater it to your specific interests, or participate in one of our scheduled large-group events. Either way you choose, I look forward to meeting you and sharing with you all that Baker has to offer!

University Admissions Assistants

Baker UAAs

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!

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!”

Just far enough away.

You’ll find an eclectic selection of eateries, many shopping options, cultural events, sports venues, theaters, recreational activities, and more within an easy driving distance.
