What makes Baldwin Wallace distinctive for me? The sense of community you feel the minute you step on campus. Everyone at BW makes you feel welcome and included. It's so important to see faculty and students passionate about their school. BW offers so many great opportunities in academics, student organizations and athletics while also providing once-in-a-lifetime experiences such as studying abroad. There is something for everyone at BW.

What do I love most about Berea and Cleveland? Berea has that small town feel with Cleveland just minutes away, giving you the best of both worlds. Cleveland has so much to offer including shows, sports (Go Cavs!) and so many great restaurants. There is always something to do and something new to discover in the area.

What is the most interesting place I have visited? Chengdu, China. I dream of the spicy noodles I ate there every day.

What am I currently reading in my spare time? "The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo" by Taylor Jenkins Reed.

What is my favorite movie? "Chef" with Jon Favreau. I've always wanted to go to New Orleans after seeing the beignets they eat in the movie.

What song can’t I get out of my head right now? "August" by Taylor Swift. I cannot stop listening to her new albums.

My message to prospective students thinking about the value of college and BW: Going to college is such a great opportunity for students to make their first big decision. Whether it's joining a new club, going to a sporting event or taking classes that you're passionate about, BW offers such a wide variety of opportunities for students to take advantage of while leveraging your interests and passions. College is all about trying new things and giving yourself opportunities for growth!
