Are We?

 Lydia Avery, YJ4L

Associate Director of Admission

Adult & Graduate Education


"I was lucky to attend BW as an adult student, so I know first-hand that BW is a great fit for adults. My experiences in the intimate learning environment that is fundamental to BW changed my life.  While I was challenged in my course work, I also felt validated for my intellect and creativity which led me to go outside my comfort zone and try several courses I otherwise wouldn't have taken.  I gained the knowledge, skills and confidence to later apply for positions that led to my current one here at BW!"

about me

YJ4L means Yellow Jacket For Life ... that's me!  I am part of a BW family:  my husband graduated in 1973 and again with a Master’s in 2002. Both of our daughters are BW alumni, along with one of our sons-in-law!  Since we live nearby, my  husband and I enjoy the wonderful Metroparks on our bikes, the library and all of the fun restaurants in the Berea and Middleburg Heights area.
