Featured alumni

As a high school student, I could have gone anywhere but I went to Baker because it really worked with my lifestyle and my goals. I think just finding a job right away I really didn't want to go into a lot of debt with a college degree and I feel like other colleges and universities don't really work with that. So, I loved the idea that Baker has night classes and they have an online option for me. I didn't want to be tied down with school and I really feel like it's been so flexible for me.
