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.
The professors at BW are, for the most part (there are exceptions to every rule, of course), fantastic. They, along with the college as a whole, care so much about their students, and take a vested interest in your success. The proximity to Cleveland gives you opportunity after opportunity, no matter what field of study you're into.
Honestly I can't say enough good things about BW. The price is pretty high, no lie, and it can be very difficult to justify spending so much, but the financial aid office is so generous and helpful, they all want you to have the best experience you can possibly have, and their resources are something that I personally have really appreciated.
The area is gorgeous, too, by the way. Campus is about two stones' throws away from the Metroparks, a sprawling park along a network of roads that connect the surrounding cities together.
Seriously, consider BW. I love it, and I hope you will, too.
