Like Kansas University, Baker University announced a record enrollment on Thursday as the university broke the 4,000-student barrier.
Among its Baldwin City campus and programs across the state and in the Kansas City area, Baker's 2008 enrollment is 4,112 students. The 2007 enrollment was 3,959 students.
Baker President Pat Long said it was a significant milestone in the university's 150-year history.
"Our excellent academic programs continue to attract quality students pursuing degrees ranging from associate to doctoral," she said.
The university's Baldwin City campus - home to the College of Arts and Sciences and the School of Education's undergraduate program - reported an enrollment of 998.
The School of Nursing at Stormont-Vail HealthCare in Topeka had 159 students enrolled. Baker's School of Professional and Graduate Studies with locations in Kansas and Missouri now has 1,885 students, and the graduate education programs enrolled 1,070 students.
