How to Register For Classes Using MyBaker



The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is the place to go when you want to get tutorial support…do group work...or just chill! 

The main area of the ARC can get a little noisy.  Individual study carrells are arranged around the outside of the room to give students a space to study by themselves.   In addition, the ARC has six group study rooms. 

The ARC has 88 total computers stationed for student use (common area [18], computer lab [36], math lab [14] and writing lab [20]).  Most computers require a Baker login; ask ARC staff for assistance.  Our department is also equipped with two black & white, and two full-color multi-function printers (print, copy and scan). 

Computers are to be used for course related purposes. Those using the computers for other purposes may be asked to move if the computer is needed.

The veterans raise questions about when wars are worth fighting, what missions can and can't be won, and the costs and benefits of US intervention, both around the world and domestically.
