Questions and answers

Why did you choose to attend Baldwin-Wallace?

The Music Theatre program is among the best in the country, and program director Victoria Bussert knows how to train competent, working actors. I wanted to go somewhere where I could get a lot of musical training as well, and the Conservatory has definitely provided that.

What is your favorite thing about BW?

I love the way the campus transforms during the seasons. Having grown up in L.A., being somewhere so deciduous makes you say "Oh, THIS is what they're supposed to look like!"

What has BW helped you learn about yourself?

So many things. There are so many interesting (and often crazy) people here that you really learn where you fit in and who you are.

What advice would you give to prospective students?

Find that balance of going with the flow and staying on track. Being solely committed to your schoolwork denies you the full college experience for your personal growth, but neglecting your schoolwork to be social is a waste of your education.
