Questions and answers

Why did you choose to attend Baldwin-Wallace?

I looked into BW when I was a high school senior but ended up at a big state school. It was too big for me plus I liked being closer to home. The campus is absolutely beautiful. I also liked how personable and willing to help the counselors were. They helped me through the entire application process with patience and understanding.

What is your favorite thing about BW?

It is hard to pick but if I had to say one thing - it would be how supportive all the professors and counselors are.

What advice would you give to prospective students?

GO TO BW! It is an amazing university and if you invest just a little bit of energy you will find that there is support everywhere you turn. Try to apply early to make your application process even smoother. Be sure to look for outside scholarship for extra financial help.

Are you able to participate in student organizations?

I am currently in the NSSLA chapter and I hope to get invovled in a book club or some type of feminist organization.
