What makes BW distinctive for me? As a BW alumna, I love the close relationships students build with their peers and professors. BW truly is a home away from home, and the campus community is a family.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? I love Cleveland sports - especially the Cleveland Indians - and all the opportunities Cleveland offers, just twenty minutes from Baldwin Wallace! I personally love the Metroparks around Berea, especially during the fall.

Where would I still like to visit that I haven’t already? Spain, Thailand and Australia are on my list.

What is the most interesting place I have visited? Ireland. The country is beautiful and the people are so kind and welcoming.

What am I currently reading in my spare time? Right now, I am reading "Educated" by Tara Westover, a memoir about a woman who started her formal education at age 17.

What is my favorite movie? "Pride and Prejudice"

If I could meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? I’ve always been fascinated with Amelia Earhart. I would love to meet her and ask how she overcame the obstacles that came with being a female pilot.

What song can’t I get out of my head right now? "Hallelujah" by Panic! at the Disco.

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: I believe college should bring about some sort of transformation. It’s good to come to college with a plan for what you want to do with your life or time in school, but also be open to change and opportunities you never thought would interest you. Try to take advantage of the possibilities that BW offers you!
