What makes BW distinctive for me? The diverse array of opportunities our students have at Baldwin Wallace sets our school apart! It’s not uncommon for a BW student to double major, play a varsity sport, participate in student organizations, and study abroad during their time here! Our liberal arts environment and the offerings here at BW allow for our students to explore a variety of interests and be truly well-rounded.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? Berea is the quintessential college town: a quiet and picturesque community that is welcoming to BW students. My favorite thing about Cleveland is its vibrant arts and culture scene. We boast the second largest theatre district in the country (second only to Broadway!), a world-renowned orchestra and incredible museums and restaurants.

What is the most interesting place I have visited? Ireland and the UK. Both countries have such incredible histories. It is so fascinating to explore buildings and institutions that have existed centuries longer than anything we have in the U.S.

What am I currently reading in my spare time? “A Testament of Youth,” Vera Brittain’s memoir about coming of age during World War I.

What song can’t I get out of your head right now? I’ve been listening to the “Dear Evan Hansen” cast recording on repeat since it came out! I love the BW connection to the show — a BW music theatre student is currently understudying Ben Platt in the title role on Broadway!

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: College is a time when you can explore new interests. You can invest in your college experience by taking a class that sounds interesting even though it’s not required for your major; by doing something out of the ordinary like attending a dance performance, sporting event or opera; and by going outside your comfort zone and joining a club to meet new people. Baldwin Wallace encourages its students to think outside the box and try new things.
