    After I finished my tour of duty, I decided to get my degree. I came to Baldwin Wallace because it has an excellent reputation and offers strong academic preparation.

Questions and answers

What is your favorite thing about BW?

The small classes were attractive because it allows me to get personal attention that I need to be successful. The help and support that I have received from both faculty and staff is above and beyond what I expected.

How did your courses transfer to BW

I had courses transfer from both the U.S. Air Force and also the American Military University. BW did an excellent job reviewing my credit and giving me the maximum credit. I was also impressed with how they helped me schedule for classes during my first semester.

Do you have a favorite story to share so that others can get a feel for BW?

During the admission process, I was informed that BW was selected as a Yellow Ribbon School. This program supplements my GI benefits which allows me to cover the entire cost of my education. Clearly this was great news since I am a Veteran. I was planning on attending BW anyway, but this clearly sealed the deal.

Are you able to participate in student organizations?

I recently was elected President of the Sociology/Criminal Justice Club and I am also serving as a Student Supreme Court Justice.
