  • BW Baldwin Wallace College



Jay Shamlin, YJ4L

Admission Counselor

Territory: OH, IA, IL, IN, MI, MN, ND, NE, SD, WI


"With my home town being Chicago, IL; my primary concern was that BW may be too country compared to the city. Berea; being a suburb of Cleveland, really makes Baldwin Wallace have the best of both worlds. If you enjoy the city life, we are 20 minutes away from downtown Cleveland. If you're more reserve, the quaint town of Berea has anything and everything under the sun. Also, the people really make Baldwin Wallace the school it is today. The faculty, staff, and students are beyond friendly, and can make a new student feel completely at home. The small class sizes gave me the chance to know my professors on more than a professional level. From the moment I became a student, I knew that I wanted to be a tour guide for the Office of Admission. As a result, I have a grown a passion for not only the people here at BW, but higher-education in general. I'm blessed to have this opportunity to work for my Alma-mater and I can not wait to meet future Yellow Jackets!"

about me

A 2012 alumnus of Baldwin-Wallace College, I've technically been at BW for almost 7 years; but only working for 3. During my time here, I majored in Public Relations with a minor in Marketing. I was a part of the Men's Volleyball team, Student assistant for the Women's Volleyball team, Arts Management Association, and a tour guide for the Office of Admission. I enjoy fine dining, traveling, and attending sporting events. I'm known to be a social butterfly so stop by our new Welcome Center and say hi!
