It is very difficult to choose something negative about a place that one holds dose to her heart. In five months, I have fallen in love with my college and find it almost impossible to say something that would lead another on a path away from BW. However ,if I must choose one thing I would say it is the snow that blows acroos Lake Erie in the winter! But I am someone who looks for the positive in all situations, so I also see this element of nature as something that drives me to arrive at class on time !
Even though all the buildings on campus are relatively close, it would be nice to have a transportation system. In the warmer months, a transportation system would not be needed as much, but in the winter, it would be convenient. It gets cold and very snowy where the college is located, so during these months students dread going out too far in the cold and snow. With a transportation system, though, students may be less likely to skip classes and feel better about going to them.
Some of the administration has been hard to work with and have made it hard to find a time to meet with them. I also don't think our student acivities director is fit for his position. He tends t be very unprofessional in his interactions with students. The food could also be improved and the amount of choices is pretty slim. It also tends to be difficult for people with dietary restrictions to find food to eat.
The worst thing about BW is that it is smaller which means there are less people with whom to interatct and communicate. Sometimes I wish BW was larger so we would have better representation of more ethnic minority groups than we do now. BW campus is predominantly caucasian which makes it hard to challenge comfort zones and be open with different cultures.
The location and the food are the two worst things about Baldwin Wallace. The food doesn't have much variation and they do not offer many choices, especially healthy choices. Since it is in Ohio, we have snow about 6-7 months out of the year, and the college doesn't give too many snow days.
The worst thing about my school is how overpriced the food is here. I am a 230 pound football player and when you have to eat alot for a sport, the cost can add up. It is also hard to find out information about living off campus, which led me to live on campus an extra year.
I think the worst thing about my school is the maitenance given to the sidewalks during the winter. It makes extremely hard to walk between my two classes when I have to trudge through snow, ice and slush. It makes it a challenge to make it to class on time.
The worst thing about Baldwin Wallace is the choice of food. I know it seems petty, but when you are living away from home sometimes you just want a really good meal. While there are days when the food is really good, those are few and far between.
My school isn't very diverse as far as race/ethnicity. It is a majority white school with maybe 8 % from other races. 85% of the school is from Ohio and many others are from New York and Pennsylvania.
I consider the worst thing about Baldwin-Wallace is the cold weather. Winter here can get fairly cold and walking to class with the wind blowing is not always the most pleasant experience.
