Bailey entered the Michigan Agricultural College (now Michigan State University) in 1878 at age twenty. He flourished under the tutelage of Dr. William James Beal, who used a new experimental approach to teach botany, using living plants and laboratory work rather than only lectures and textbooks. He helped organize and edit The College Speculum, a quarterly paper providing both scientific and general reading. Graduating in August 1882, Bailey secured a post as a reporter on the Springfield, Illinois Morning Monitor.
