I love BW. If I could describe my school in one word it word be "community." BW students are often over-involved because of so many great opportunities that this small, suburban school offers. I have personal relationships with each of my professors and I genuinely enjoy their lectures. If I could change one thing about my school, it would be the food because it upsets my stomach. Included, they just recently changed the meal plan which now refuses students the opportunity of being refunded for whatever amount of money they did not spend during the academic year.

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 best thing about this school is its professors. They are easily some of the most educated individuals I have ever come across, especially in the History and Political Science departments. The overall classes in turn are great and very easily manageable. The local area and overall safety of the campus are pretty good. I can't really say I have ever worried about that sort of thing. The only downside to this school is the party scene, if you are into that thing. It is almost nonexistent. Other than that though, this school offers a great education with fantastic professors, with some of the best financial aid scholarships/awards I have seen at a private university. This school has saved me a ton of money, which is always a great thing.
