Lydia Avery, YJ4L
Associate Director of Admission
Adult & Graduate Education
"I was lucky to attend BW as an adult student, so I know first-hand that BW is a great fit for adults. I earned my bachelor’s degree in Communication in 2000. My experiences in the intimate learning environment that is fundamental to BW changed my life. While I was challenged in my course work, I also felt validated for my intellect and creativity which led me to go outside my comfort zone and try several courses I otherwise wouldn't have taken. I gained the knowledge, skills and confidence to later apply for positions that led to my current one here at BW!"
YJ4L means Yellow Jacket For Life ... that's me! I am part of a BW family: my husband graduated in 1973 and again with a Master’s in 2002. Both of our daughters are BW alumni, along with one of our sons-in-law! Since we live nearby, my husband and I enjoy the wonderful Metroparks on our bikes, the library and all of the fun restaurants in the Berea and Middleburg Heights area.
