Transfer Spotlight

Scott Simmerer

Anticipated Graduation Date: May, 2012

Degree/Major: Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice

Veteran:  Yellow Ribbon School

Why did you decide to attend B-W?
Baldwin-Wallace has an excellent reputation and offers strong academic preparation.  In addition, 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 classes transfer to B-W from other colleges?
I had courses transfer from both the U.S. Air Force and also the American Military University.  B-W 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
Please share an experience that strongly influenced your decision to come to B-W.
During the admission process, I was informed that B-W 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 B-W anyway, but this clearly sealed the deal. 

What is your campus involvement outside the classroom? 
I recently was elected President of the Sociology/Criminal Justice Club and I am also serving as a Student Supreme Court Justice.
