4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel generally safe while walking home late at night on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors (for the most part) are always ready and available to help me. As a con student, I don't have a lot of opportunities to explore other classes.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are definitely better than others, which is frustrating as we all pay the same room and board (except for Davidson).

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I feel it is very hard to find a good friend group without joining Greek life, however, Greek life isn't for me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There is no school spirit, however, I think the teams are adequately prepared from the facilities they have on campus.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I only chose BW for the strength of the program in which I would like to get a degree in. Otherwise, I wouldn't have gone there. I struggle with this everyday, for I am unhappy there, but I know that they have the strongest program for what I want to do. There is no school spirit (which I am used to from my high school) and it is very hard to find a good group of friends unless you join greek life (which is a no for me). I wish I could have attended a bigger school (like UC, OSU, OU, etc.) with the strength of the program that BW has!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Much better than average, although the safety of the area is due in large part to the location of campus. I haven't heard anything since my first semester about any active measures the school is taking to prevent sexual assault.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: In the Conservatory of Music, the level of instruction is average for a specialized music school. There are no TAs teaching classes. Everyone hears about everything (gossip), since the school is so small. The theory department is difficult to work with if you have trouble with theory. Disability services is just average. Overall, it's better than a state school, but it's definitely nowhere near a place like the Cleveland Institute of Music.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the residence halls, Kohler in particular, are dumps. There's an ongoing ant problem on the entire first floor, the rooms aren't very clean at all, and the showers are extremely old and outdated.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I hear the baseball team is good. Most conservatory students don't have time for athletic events.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm a conservatory student. If you don't have excellent time management skills, you won't do very well in the conservatory. There is a campus wide attendance policy that if you miss more than 20 percent of the scheduled class days during the semester, you automatically fail. This can be difficult for someone who has trouble with early morning classes.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: The health center is cheap. efficient, and easy to get into. They have actual doctors on campus during specific times in case you get very sick. Appointments are quick. It is easy to get a hold of counselors etc. Campus is generally very safe. I have been here for there years and I have not heard of any serious safety instances where anyone has been hurt, mugged, or sexually assaulted.

Overall Experience: Professors are very devoted to your success inside and outside of the classroom. They truly want you to succeed after you graduate. They help you find internships, scholarships, study groups, campus activities, and a wide variety of other things.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many alumni stay on campus and find jobs in the Berea and are there to connect with you about their experiences. Professors and advisers are helpful when trying to connect with careers and internships. There are many job fairs, and Baldwin Wallace is connected with so many different employers.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Other than the new freshman dorms that were built just two years ago, the dorms are a bit outdated but they have everything you need. There aren't very many restrictions on visitation and dorms are boy-girl, so the social aspects become very easy.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Depending on which sorority or fraternity you choose, you are a bit judged and stereotyped. The fraternities are seen as not masculine because a lot of homosexuals are in them. Being a school predominantly run by the conservatory, I suppose that is to be expected.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our athletics have recently (2016) been at the top of our division. However, I have never seen a full stadium. We don't get much fan support, but at a D3 school, most of us aren't there for the sports. We are there to get a good education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Small school with small classrooms. Very supportive community on campus, and there is ALWAYS help when you need it. Professors and advisers are amazing.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've personally never felt in danger while on campus, and I often walk around campus at night alone. I've also never felt at threat from the Berea area either. However, if you ever find yourself in a scary situation on campus, there are call boxes throughout that you can reach Safety and Security from and they will come get you and escort you to your room if needed.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are all really nice and friendly and really try their hardest to help you do your best in their classes. I really only ever had one professor in my three years as a student that i didn't care for. The classes for the most part are challenging, but there as with most schools, there are some that can be considered easy and some, but not many, that can be considered impossible. The classes are small, no more than 30 students in any one class, and generally only about 25 students. The professors try to come up with interesting courses that will keep students engaged.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I haven't really explored the job/internship prospects, but I know a lot of students who graduate from BW seem to go on to desirable career fields, and there are numerous opportunities in the Berea/Cleveland area.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't the worst, but they could also be better. I've lived in Lang for the past 2 years, and while I don't hate it, there are some things that could be better, like the heating situation. When it's actually cold, the heat is fantastic, however, for some reason they leave the heat on even when it starts to warm up, so your left sweating to death in your room. Also, sometimes the pipes make some crazy racket that's kind of annoying. There is a dining hall in the basement, though, that's open until midnight that mostly makes up for it.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I don't particularly care for Greek life. It's just not my thing, but there seems to be a place for everyone in one of our various sororities and fraternities, so no one need fear being not accepted.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Personally, I don't care for athletics, but for the people I know who do, they seem to enjoy it, and a lot of people utilize the athletic facilities.
