Where might you see me? Cleveland’s east side suburbs

My hometown: Butler, Pa.

What makes BW distinctive for me? The supportive community. BW is a place that truly cares! Our faculty, staff, and students only have one other’s best interests in mind. From a faculty member who helps place you in an awesome internship, to a staff member offering a supportive ear, to a roommate who becomes your life-long friend – BW becomes your family.  

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? During my first visit to BW, my dad and I biked around Berea, and the city was one of the top reasons I chose to attend! It has beautiful small-town charm with opportunities to experience art and culture, nature, delicious local food, and even a little shopping! My favorite thing about Cleveland is that it’s a destination for amazing national tours. You can see Broadway-quality shows in our backyard!

Where would I still like to visit that I haven’t already? New Zealand. My brother and his family – including my three nieces and nephews – live there! 

What is my favorite movie? “The Princess Bride”

What am I currently reading in my spare time? “Guess How Much I Love You?” and “Brown Bear,” which I am currently reading to my baby.

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: College is a huge investment, the largest you will make at this stage in your life, so don’t take this decision lightly. Finding somewhere you feel comfortable and that you feel is a home-away-from-home is so important. Visit, visit, visit. Sit in on classes, meet professors, attend social events and spend the night on campus. It is YOUR choice where you will spend the next four years of your life.
