I love this school. It provides ample opportunity for students to get involved with not only the school but the opportunity too. The staff is incredible, in my time being here I’ve only had one professor that I was not too fond of. Other than that, every professor has a strong drive and is willing to help. I am an education major and all my classes and professors really take initiative to assure that myself and others are ready for the real world of teaching. The food is not the best but we are around a lot of restaurants/carry out places that make up for it. I am so happy with this school!

I personally love that Baldwin Wallace is so close to home for me. As an educator, it is wonderful to have the chance to form bonds with those that have always been close in location. The sense of community at Baldwin Wallace is incomparable! Of course friends make the community wonderful, but professors are the ones that make it so memorable; the are always willing to help you in any way!
I am a junior at BW, currently studying abroad in Australia for the Fall semester at the University of the Sunshine Coast, their sister school. I fell in love with BW on my first visit, telling my mom that we better check out some other schools quickly, as I was already taken with everything BW offered. I have not regretted my choice to attend BW at all, despite opportunities and scholarships at other local and respected universities. I love the beautiful campus, the caring faculty and all of the friends and connections I have made in my two years there. Most of all, I am thrilled at the opportunity I have to study in Australia, my dream location, for Fall 2019. BW was so helpful and supportive in making my dream come true. They are truly committed to their student base, and I am proud to be a member of that group!!
