Scholarship Recognition Day attracts potential freshmen to BU

New students thinking about coming to Baker University came to the Baldwin City campus Saturday.

The admission office said 54 potential freshmen and their families attending Baker's Scholarship Recognition Day.  

Mark Bandre, vice president of enrollment management and student development, said he thought the day was a success for the university.   

This year's recognition day differed from years past in that the event is no longer an academic competition. Instead of going through interviews and writing essays, students that have already been offered acceptance and scholarships were given the opportunity to learn more about the university.

"Our goal is to have 230 new freshmen and 50 transfer students for the fall," Bandre said.
