BW is great! As a mid-year transfer student I was really nervous having to start everything over again. I went from a huge state school to a very small school. The faculty & staff are very kind. My professors know me by name and want what's best for me, in & outside of the classroom. From understanding the course work to finding an internship or getting involved on campus, they truly make an effort to make sure that we are taking advantage of all the opportunities that are provided here at Baldwin Wallace University.

The class sizes is small, which is great becuase the professor gets to know the students on a personal and professional way. All of the professors care about the students development, if they're getting the work done correctly and making sure we are stretching ourselves to learn more. Each professor is different but they know how to explain the material in multiple ways so that all students will be able to follow along with them. It is all difficult work but that is expected. If extra help is needed, we have tutors in Ritter and online! Pretty much everything is flexible.
I love Baldwin Wallace! It is an amazing school! The faculty is extremely friendly. The music program is very strong at Baldwin Wallace, which is very important to me as a singer. They have so much going on there for the students to participate in like the largest collegiate Bach festival and the Beatles festival. Baldwin Wallace is a great school!
