It's a really great school and a lot of the professors are great!

It's just an issue of administration. They really actually don't seem to care about the students. They just seem to be there cause they like being in control. Almost every one in residence life seems nice upfront but is a snake behind your back and it's really detrimental.
I absolutely love Baker. The smaller college environment isn't for everyone, but it's so nice to have professors who genuinely care about you. Not only that, but the school feels like a big family. It is very easy to get involved as there's multiple clubs and even Greek life. The connections you make here will help so much later on.
Love this school and professors. They make my nursing experience much more endurable!
