Something Extraordinary is Waiting for You

From Buffalo to BW

You can feel it the first time you step on campus. Baldwin Wallace University is extraordinary. Our student-centered learning opportunities put you first. Here, you can break new ground in your studies and gain the skills to prepare for an exciting career.

We're a campus far enough from the Buffalo area that you can feel adventurous visiting new places and meeting new people. Yet, we're not so different that you’ll miss the comforts of home — people who care about you as a person and an open door waiting for your entrance.

Invest in yourself. We do.

One in four students who come to BW are from states other than Ohio. We value the diverse experiences and insights you bring to BW as an out-of-state student. That's why we generously award out-of-state students an annual $5,000 grant in addition to other BW scholarships and grants. (BW's Come Live the Experience (CLE) is a $5,000 grant for all out-of-state students except for some programs in the Conservatory of Music.)

Three hours from Buffalo.

BW is an easy three-hour drive from Buffalo via I-90. Our home city of Berea is welcoming, safe and walkable. Twenty minutes away is Cleveland, a vibrant, lakefront city on the rise. It’s a popular student destination for internships, entertainment and career opportunities.

We're here to help.

Nicole Gladish, your BW admission counselor, would be happy to answer your questions. Please send a quick email to or reach out by phone at (440) 826-2092.
