Where might you see me? Northwest Ohio and Tennessee   

What makes BW distinctive for me? The statistics speak for themselves. With BW's outstanding academics, beautiful campus, and faculty that care about students, I knew right away that I wanted to be a part of the Baldwin Wallace community.  

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? Berea is so pretty in the fall while all of the leaves are changing colors; it’s an area that reminds me of home. However, I am a city girl, so I love experiencing all that Cleveland has to offer. From enjoying small coffee shops with live jazz music, marching for causes I believe in, and attending huge sporting events, I get to do it all! Since Cleveland is only a 20-minute drive from Berea, I get the best of both worlds!  

Where would I still like to visit that I haven’t already? Brazil  

What is the most interesting place I have visited? I grew up in Poland and we travelled throughout Europe; I would love to go back as an adult.  

If I got to meet any historical figure, who would it be and why? Michael Jackson. Do I really have to explain why?  

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: As future college students, it is important to hit the books hard and make the grades. But the real world is more than how well you can answer a few questions on a quiz. Baldwin Wallace is a supportive environment that not only encourages students’ academic talents, but gives them the safe space to gain the skills needed to succeed in any field. Get involved, make connections and start building your social and professional network. The real world is closer than it seems.
