Academic Flexibility: The first two years were easy to schedule. Once you get more into program-specific classes, things get trickier. One of my classes winter 2015 (which I'm taking on rotation) was only offered as a night class. I really hate night classes, but I had no other choice.

My only transfer credits were from AP classes I took in high school and I had no problems using them.

Overall Experience: I love my program and the experiences it has allowed me to have. However, I do regret that I did not choose a more intensely academic institution. I ended up at Baker because I wasn't ready to leave home right away after high school. It was a marriage of convenience. I'm grateful for what I've learned here, but at the same time, I know I could have learned more elsewhere.

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes and opportunities to build relationships with instructors.

Overall Experience: The Human Services program has contacts in most of the agencies in the area. Most have at least one employee who is a Baker graduate. Having 3 internships (2 at Associates level, 1 more at Bachelors) allows for networking as well as real-life experience.

Online Courses: Online instructors are either some of the best I've ever had or the worst. Everyone I know who has taken an online course has a horror story about an instructor who held ridiculously high standards and decided no one in the class could get an A. Workload in online classes is more than double that of on-ground classes.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Most students here are 25+ with families. Those who come here straight out of high school are, for the most part, more interested in partying than learning. I've met some amazing people, but for the most part, I don't have much in common with most of them.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Unfortunately, towards the end of the program, a lot of the information started getting redundant. I hate that I had to pay for classes that only add on a little to things I've already learned. If you can, try to get the Board of Regents scholarship. It's half-off tuition and has helped tremendously.

5 College Senior

Career Services: Baker is dedicated to their lifetime job assistance program.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The career focus is so helpful. Instructors have all worked in the field, which means they are insightful and very helpful.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I like the easy online class registration and the workload isn't too bad. I love my program, but I can't speak for any others in regards to academics.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The library is amazing and the fitness center is a nice perk. However, there isn't much going on on campus.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Hard. It is immensely difficult. There isn't too much homework aside from an occasional fill-in-the-blank sheet or an article review, but that's because the program is so test heavy. I only work 10 hours a week, am in class for 13 credit hours, and the only thing I do aside from going to the gym and buying weekly groceries is study. And it still doesn't feel like enough. But the satisfaction I get from this program is worth it. It's a competition just to get in, I mean it, I had to take a year of pre-requisites just to apply and hope I get in, and they only accept 20 students. And while you might think they'd lay off a little once you're in, they don't, it only gets harder. But the instructors are phenomenal, the program becomes such a personal experience because all of the classes are with the same 20 people who worked just as hard to get here. We have such a sense of community, it can't be replicated. I've only just finished my first quarter in the program, so there's not much else I can say yet, but so far, so much more than good.

Academic Experience: This is hard because a lot of the people I know here don't love this school as much as I do, but I'm taking their consensus into account for this rating. It seems to me like it's really just the sciences at this school that thrive, and the Culinary Institute also. Everyone I know in other majors doesn't seem as satisfied with their professors, curriculum, or anything. The CIM is great because it's so specialized, and the health degrees offered are great because of the way our programs are run and the way we have to compete to get in them, so everyone is at a high level and on the same page about what it takes to be successful in the program. The professors I had for some of my pre-requisites weren't as amazing for the most part. I found it difficult to really relate some of those classes to what I wanted to do, especially since you're mixed in with people in different programs, I just couldn't get as much out of a class that wasn't personalized to my major. Class registration is about the easiest thing there is in my program, since we're all one class and stick together the whole year, our director registers us all at once and we have one less thing to worry about (hooray!). So I guess it all depends on the program, the academics for health degree students and for culinary students I'd probably give a 5, but from what I've heard from other students, maybe a 3/5 for most other degrees.

Campus Resources: Since it's a smaller school, there's not always a lot to do, and even though I applaud the efforts made by the RAs to provide fun events, there aren't usually many people in attendance to them. The BRIC (the "hangout" building, if you will) is convenient, but I wish the gym there was a little larger and it never opens until noon, so, being a morning person, I don't bother to go there much anymore. The gym on main campus is much nicer, but the weekend hours are so limited, and I have classes and work during the week. Overall, the facilities and resources are mostly wonderful, just not nearly as accessible as I'd like.
