What makes BW distinctive for me? Baldwin Wallace University brings a sense of family and positive opportunities to all its students. BW represents many diverse students and distinctive majors. It gives the feel of a small college while providing big city opportunities only 20 minutes away. Coming to BW is an experience like no other and will provide you with valuable opportunities.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? I love the outdoors, and the Cleveland Metroparks and downtown Berea are both beautiful places to enjoy nature as well as different events and great restaurants. Both provide a relaxing experience as well as amazing food options. Being a huge sports fan, Cleveland provides the opportunity to see the Cavaliers, Browns and Indians all within a few minutes of each another. 

What is the most interesting place I have visited? London, England. I traveled abroad during my senior year at BW, and it was life-changing.

What is my favorite movie? My favorite movie is “Love & Basketball.” Growing up I was a huge basketball fan and athlete myself, so this is a must-watch movie.

What song can’t I get out of my head right now? My favorite song I can’t seem to get out my head right now is a hip-hop song called “Work” by Rihanna featuring Drake.

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: College will be the best and most memorable time of your life. Being a recent student athlete and alumnus of Baldwin Wallace University, I can honestly say BW has changed my life for the better. BW gave me the right skills to remain humble, hardworking and innovative, and this helped me get to where I am today.
