What is good to know before you arrive
Before coming to Baker University, there are several things students should know about the area. For those who come from small towns, Baldwin City and Baker may be big for them. That was my case. And for those who come from cities, they should know that Baldwin is a small town. At Baker, there are roughly 1,000 students. It’s nice that everyone knows one another and everyone is friendly.
For those from small towns they will probably be satisfied with the local activities. I’m already used to driving at least 20 minutes to get to the closest Wal-Mart at home. Being here in Baldwin City, the closest Wal-Mart is about 15 minutes away along with the closest movie theater and many restaurants. I’m guessing that for people who are from a city, that may be difficult, but I promise all of my friends are OK with it and have adapted. From what I’ve always heard, people who come to Baker have been charmed by the activities and what it can offer to students. It’s a great, personable place. Adjusting before arriving at Baker University is important, but be sure to make the best of your experience when you’re there.
