College Spotlight: Baldwin-Wallace College
Are you interested in studying opera or do you dream of performing on Broadway? Take a look at Baldwin-Wallace College located in Berea, Ohio (20 minutes southwest of Cleveland). Freshman can pursue the study and performance of opera, and musical education students go into the field. Not only is it a top musical theater program, this small private school is test optional (this means no SAT or ACT scores are required as part of the application!). Note: the music school begins the application and audition process six months before the general B-W application process. Baldwin-Wallace’s campus has many new buildings, including science labs, dorms and the athletic center. To learn more about Baldwin-Wallace click here.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers.

Did You Know?
Looking to apply Early Action (EA) or Early Decision (ED) to college this year? Many high school guidance counselors require students to provide their completed application two weeks prior to the deadline. This allows the guidance counselor enough time to complete the school forms and submit them in a timely manner. For the unprepared student this can be quite a shock. Suddenly that November 15 deadline becomes November 1. The best way to reduce your stress level is to ask your guidance office what they need and when they need it. Less surprise equals a smoother process for you and your guidance counselor.
