Baker University is a small school that exhibits a tremendous sense of community. Whenever you walk from class to class, you are sure to see a multitude of people that you know and that will smile, stop, and talk to you. The professors take a genuine interest in your individual education if you put forth the effort to make a relationship with them. The campus is kept maintained and looking wonderful. There are also several opportunities to get involved on and off campus. I would recommend the school over and over again.

Hands down best student services, ever! Always available to their students or students inquiring. Up front and supportive to their students needs and goals. Classes are easily accessible with online choices.
You should really go to Baker!!!
