I loved going to nursing school at Baker University. The professors were fantastic and the class sizes were small, which created a better learning environment for me. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great school that will prepare you so well for your future of nursing!

Baker is an amazing college that offers very personal connections with your professors. The classes can be tough, but if you are really dedicated, it's very worth it. The best department by far is the psychology department!
I love baker! The faculty and students are wonderful! It feels like home and I miss it when on breaks. I haven’t once met a mean or unwelcoming person on campus and would recommend this college to anyone. The small town feel is wonderful and it is a very safe campus from all the typical college safety risks. I truly do not ever want to leave there.
