What made you return to College to complete a bachelor’s degree? As I approached 40, I decided that this was the time to refocus on my educational goals and pursue a path that would put me in a position to help others realize their dreams. My journey included quitting my job, pulling out my savings and investing in my future!
How did your courses transfer to B-W? I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with an Associate’s Degree in Applied Business and I transferred the maximum 62 semester hours.
Who has influenced or benefited you at B-W? Heather Rule, my academic advisor, has been a strong support to me. She has done everything she can to assist me including taking the time to help me understand my Jacket Express account; get a scholarship and she laid out a two year graduation plan. I always leave her office believing everything will work out! And it has!
How is B-W preparing you to attain your goals? My goals are being met with the assistance of B-W's excellent professors. The classroom experience goes beyond textbooks and incorporates the professor’s personal knowledge and experiences. The assignments have challenged me to face my insecurities; and, the quality of my work has improved with each assignment.
Do you have a favorite story that you’d like to share so that others can get a feel for the B-W experience? During my first semester at Baldwin Wallace I had questions regarding my financial aid and called the financial aid office for assistance. I not only talked to a woman who was helpful but she also explained and answered all my questions. All of my experiences with representatives of Baldwin Wallace have been kind and helpful.
