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.
As an adult continuing education student, BW's advisors were there for me at every turn. My professors took the time to get to know me and the passion for what I was studying. Their passion for what they are teaching is felt and encourages to push yourself beyond your limits to discover yourself outside the box. BW does not hold you back from what you want to study. If you are struggling, they take the time to help reach your goals and then to step over your goals. They do not believe in having to except someone into a program, but allow you to study what it is that sets you into motion. The professors want you to reach your work in honesty and they want you think critically. I found my time at BW to be an enriching experince that can never be replaced.
