Welcome

Jamie Zamjahn

My name is Jamie Zamjahn, Vice President of Student Success & Engagement, and it is my honor and privilege to introduce our #StudentFirst philosophy, including the holistic and proactive support you will receive as a Baker College student.

#StudentFirst extends through your entire Baker College journey. Whether this is your first or last term, we are here to cheer you on. Our Career Services team is here to provide you guidance during your time as a student, as well as after graduation.

Part of being #StudentFirst is learning about each of you, and what you need to be a successful student. I am excited for the opportunity to meet you and learn about the passions that brought you here. Please reach out to [email protected] to set up a Wellness Walk or Zoom chat.

This is your time to explore, collaborate, and unite with your fellow students, faculty, and staff. Baker College has innovative academic and co-curricular programs that will provide different spaces for you to create your own community. Don’t see a club or organization that you are passionate about? Let’s work together to create it!

Please take a moment to review the following student services, which are available to you both on-campus and virtually. Remember, to maximize your success, take advantage of your services early and often during your time here.

Again, we’re excited to have you here!
