While the classes in that of themselves are going great, the state of the housing in the student townhouses are poor. Since I moved in my 3 roommates and I have noticed significant issues in regards to the structure of the house. Such as, but apparently not limited to because of new issues constantly arising, a faulty toilet as well as a faulty toilet replacement, water damage to the living room ceiling due to faulty toilet activity, the overall mess caused by the maintenance reps, paint splatters left from repairs that the contractors said they would fix, the consistently igniting stove that ended damaging our counter tops, the loose patches in the ceilings of our bedrooms, and lastly the miscommunication and dismissal of it all. We have met with someone and we want compensation but it seems as though we are not being taken seriously. If this were an issue at any other rental residence we would have not only had the issues listed dealt with expediently but also compensated for this.
I enjoyed the vet tech program for the year I was in. One word of caution for incoming students would be to be upfront and deliberate in how you interact with OneStop advising, otherwise you may find errors with your financial aid.
The Professors genuinely cared about me and my grades; they did what they could to help when I struggled.

Every class is straight and to the point. It is also one of the most affordable options. The system has changed somewhat, the customer service aspect has gone down some with a great deal of the system transferring to online.
Some of the teachers are great, but the majority are not. They also have some issues regarding scholarships and high school credits. I did meet some good friends through my experience there.
Over all Baker College was a great choice for my first college. Baker had a specific program I wanted to start with. Once starting the program, I struggled at finding my studying habits but finally got it down. The professors here are very nice and hard working. They want to see you succeed in every class and pass the class. They try to help you to their best ability whether it's with in class experience or outside experience. My classmates are very helpful when it comes to getting questions answered or working in group projects. Getting books and supplies are a little pricey but books get price matched from amazon or Barnes and Noble. Overall, Baker was the best choice for me and to get start into the career I wanted to get into.
The staff and faculty is great, but with the semester conversion everything got messed up. Also, there have been so many changes over this year that it's hard to say I like it as much as I did when I first came.
Baker is a professional, well put together college. There is room for improvement when it comes to class payments and assistance with loans and other financial areas, but the professors and other employees are all very helpful and friendly.
The small class sizes are very helpful. The teachers learn your name, and are willing to help you understand concepts. Most classes are also hands-on learning, so it all sticks with you.
I liked how they told students that they could get their degree in two years with hardly any hassle. Although, now that I'm going there it is a lot of hassle. The credits don't transfer to other colleges. The teachers are well trained in the fields that they teach, which is a huge bonus. They know what they're talking about, most of the time.
Baker is a good college based on academics. They do not have much of a social scene. There is no football team or hockey team. They do have many clubs though. There is only was area for food on campus.
I just started at the CIM recently and so far it is an amazing return on my investment. The professors are amazing and the other students here are nice. The only problems I've had were with Financial Aid.
Baker College of Muskegon is a great small private college, located just a few minutes from Lake Michigan. Overall, I have had a pleasant experience at Baker. The professors are usually quite friendly and my adviser is always willing to help!
This is the second college I have attended, and I cannot believe the difference between the two. The staff is so friendly and helpful and everyone there genuinely cares about your future. Teachers care so much about their students, and it really shows. I love my college.
Baker college as an overall school is not bad, but they don't have many activities for those who live on campus and some of there rules are crazy, Like depending on major you cant die your hair any other color than natural. Some programs don't allow tattoos or piercings, but there academics are in the right place and the classes are small so help is given when needed.
Baker's Admissions Debbie was extremely helpful. Going to college can be a stressful situation but she helped me every step of the way and answered every question. Everyone was very welcoming and the layout made it easy to locate classes along with the signs. They are straight to the point and give you great hands on experience. They are an education for the workforce and not just to pass test. That is why I'm going back to Baket
Baker College of Muskegon is a very good college. The professors are loving and caring. They staff makes you feel comfortable. The building is clean and comfortable. I feel that sometimes Baker is a little disorganized and gives misguiding information at times. However the college is focused on the success of their students.

It was supposed be a good school, especially for the price and all the problems that i've had to deal with the last 2 years. Main Campus classes are okay, CIM classes definitely teach you real world skills, but the cutting of programs and classes albeit making those of us who are close to graduation stay here longer, costing us more out of pocket.
The only good part that I can remember since attending Baker College of Muskegon was that the campus is small. They need to look into lowering their tuition for the quality of education they provide.
I currently attend the Culinary Institute of Michigan which is a branch of Baker College of Muskegon. All of the instructors are incredibly knowledable and have years of experience in the culinary field. The labs are outfitted with almost every piece of equipment that can be encountered in any professional kitchen, even if there is only a slim chance of a restaurant or bakery owning it.
