What makes Baldwin Wallace University distinctive? Baldwin Wallace is committed to giving all students a well-rounded education and providing them with exceptional engagement with those in and around their community. It doesn’t matter if you are an undergraduate or graduate student, BW staff and faculty prioritize your success inside and outside the classroom with rigorous academic work, unique program opportunities and competitive internships. BW will prepare you for where you are heading next in your career.

What is the most interesting place I have visited? During my time as a student at Baldwin Wallace, I did a faculty-led trip to Ghana, Africa. The waterfalls were my favorite part of the trip. Absolutely breathtaking! They were some of the only places left that were untouched by the demands of the western world.

Where would I still like to visit that I haven't already? There are so many places left on my list. My top places include Nashville, Brazil, Niagara Falls and Houston. Places of vibrant culture, rich history and outstanding landmarks excite me the most.

If I could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? I would want to meet Rosa Parks who was a creative and courageous trailblazer.

What is my favorite movie? Black Panther because it was long overdue for black actors to have representation in film that portrayed them as strong, creative leaders and someone to aspire to be.

What song can’t I get out of my head right now? "Sunflower" by Post Malone from the Spider-Man movie. This song never ceases to put me in a good mood.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? The ability to have the small town feel and city life all within 20 minutes of each other.

My message to students thinking about the value of college and BW: College is unique in that you don’t have to fit a certain mold. You can be starting your degree, finishing your degree, pursuing graduate studies, completing a certificate or taking classes as a life-long learner. The journey is one in which you will learn, grow and excel in ways you never thought possible. There are valuable resources available, including: networking opportunities, leadership experience and exploring the world while you are here. BW could be that place to live outside the mold and continue your collegiate journey.
