What makes Baldwin Wallace University distinctive? The people and the environment. The people here are the nicest, most inclusive, caring and helpful people I've met. When you put them all in one place, you create a community that reflects all of those traits.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? I love the small town feel of Berea with access to a major city 20 minutes away. I love Cleveland because of the passion people from the city have for the city, such as our sports teams.

Where would I still like to visit that I haven’t already? I would like to take a trip across Europe and visit Germany, France, Spain and the Netherlands.

What is the most interesting place I have visited? Costa Rica. I was lucky enough to go with the soccer team junior year and zipline through the rain forest, stay at a beach resort and visit some of their soccer stadiums.

If I could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? I would like to meet Blackbeard and ask him about being a pirate and where he hid his treasure.

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: If you prefer to learn from people with experience in an environment that provides and encourages you to take on real-world opportunities, Baldwin Wallace is the place for you.
