Baker enrollment swells to 3,621 system wide
Baker University reported an overall enrollment of 3,621 students -- an increase of 283 students from last year's first-day figures -- at all of its campuses on Wednesday, the first day of classes.
At the main campus in Baldwin City, 945 students -- a gain of 17 from last year's first-day total -- were enrolled on Wednesday in the College of Arts and Sciences, which includes undergraduate students in the School of Education. The figure also includes 309 new students.
The School of Professional and Graduate Studies, and the School of Education graduate students based in Overland Park reported an enrollment of 2,521 students.
The School of Nursing at Stormont-Vail Regional HealthCare in Topeka is operating at a maximum capacity of 155 students.
Official enrollments are not counted until the 20th day (Sept. 19) of classes, so as students drop and add during that period, the final number may change. The School of Professional and Graduate Studies numbers are expected to increase at that time due to delayed reporting procedures.
