I love going to Baker University. It is such a great school with an amazing atmosphere. The campus is small, but is absolutely beautiful! Everyone is very friendly, there is a great Greek community, and the education is wonderful.

I love Baker University! There are so many things to do on and off campus. The professors are absolutely amazing. They work with each individual student to help them succeed.
If I had to describe Baker University in one word it would be family. Over my 3 years at this university, the students, professors, and faculty have become apart of my family. Baker is a small university so it holds more opportunities for its students making it an easy place to make connections for later in life.
If I had to change one thing about Baker University it would be its housing options.
