Questions and answers

Why did you choose to attend Baldwin-Wallace?

What is your favorite thing about BW?

The COOKIES!!! And the general atmosphere of students, faculty and staff. People always seem to be in a good mood. Those you encounter at BW treat you with the same respect they would want to be treated with.

What has BW helped you learn about yourself?

Although I volunteered for service events at home and in high school, BW helped me realize how much of a difference I really can make in my community.

What advice would you give to prospective students?

Pick somewhere you feel comfortable, it will be your home away from home for the next 4 years!
