3 College Senior

Majors: Internships on campus never seem to be paid, I've had three… At least they look good on my resume!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have fallen in love with all this school has to offer, and I have yet to come across even one alum who disagrees with that!

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Rules anywhere suck. Luckily, living here isn't near as bad as the horror stories I have heard at other schools. RAs are pretty lax. I prefer Tower/Ferncliff, but it is important to find somewhere that suits your personality, and each of the halls' personalities change from year to year. Apartments/ houses are really nice and are nicely priced compared to other comparable schools. It is a great baby-step to being on your own!

4 College Senior

Nightlife: Go to the houses. The bar is not all it is cracked up to be, especially since it reopened.

3 College Senior

Facilities: They offer majors that they cannot even fully take care of;

Theatre: one black box theatre that seats 40 I believe, that's it

Performing Arts (Music): No stage. they usually perform in the chapel which does not have the proper acoustics for every song

3 College Senior

Scholarships: They give out amazing scholarships, but the ladies in the office are usually pretty grouchy. Who can blame them? They always seem to lose my FAFSA for the past three years though, hmm….

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The administration has good intentions, but I've seen many cases where two people do the same thing but get different punishments of differing degrees. Play suck up if you see yourself ever getting in trouble, it will pay off ten-fold.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most everyone is genuinely friendly and approachable. Most are stressed in upper-middle class garb, although we do have a few artsy types… Witt is very incestual when it comes to relationships though- if you don't want everyone knowing everything about your relationship, don't date a fellow student. It takes less than a night to spread through all of campus!

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Even as an ex-sorority girl, I can vouch that Greek life is great here. There are always a few exceptions, but it is worth it to see what it is all about. Watch out for the price tags though!

3 College Senior

Athletics: They just are not a huge part of campus- we're D3, what do you expect? Nice facilities though. Don't be surprised when you go to your first football games and there are maybe 15 people in the stands….

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I would not change my experience here for anything. Even Miami Univ students talk about how they wish they did the education program at Witt instead since we get bumped to the top of the hiring list when we apply. Come here and live the dream, academically, socially, and actively!

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: High 90 percentages of job placement within 6 months of graduation. That seriously amazing. Trust me. Most of our education students find jobs before they even walk Commencement Hollow!

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Plenty of parks and reservoirs to visit. Yellow Springs is only 20 minutes away, but it is well worth it.

3 College Senior

Majors: As a music major, there is an audition process. Witt's was easier than any others that I had gone through. Very laid back. At the end of sophomore year, there is a barrier test that you have to pass. This is also very easy. Think conservatory but not as strict. As long as you show progress, you pass.

5 College Senior

Majors: I had the opportunity my sophomore year to start a music program in an elementary school that had lost theirs due to budget cuts. It looks great on my resume, and because of my program, I was able to complete it successfully while counting as credit!

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Witt requires students to live on campus all four years unless they live within a certain mile radius, and for good reason. The immediate Springfield area is kinda sketch and very run down. Witt owns most properties within a 2-3 mile radius from the main campus, including residence halls, apartments, and bi-level houses. These are well taken care of and well-worth the money. (All Witt housing can be subsidized… aka they give scholarships to live in them!)

4 College Senior

Diversity: The four years that I have attended, Witt has become more diverse in every way. I did a diversity internship which really brought to the table issues that Witt still had in regards to diversity. These issues were immediately addressed, which proves how much Witt truly does care!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few Mom&Pop shops around the area, but they have limited hours. They are relatively cheap, and they do offer student discounts. Distance can sometimes be an issue if you don't want a 20+minute walk.

4 College Senior

Academics: The professors are excellent. All of our teachers have at least a Masters if not a higher degree unlike other schools. In other words, they truly know what they are teaching you. They get to know and treat you like professional peers rather than just students, which I find very valuable. Curriculum is fast paced, but not extremely difficult. Registration can be rough in the general ed classes for bigger majors, but in mine I have never had a problem.

5 College Senior

Academics: As a music education major, I believe we receive a more focused education than any other major on campus because we are so small with such a large work load. Because of our <10 students per class spanning all levels of years, our classes are very hands-on and diverse. I have been able to delve deeper into the material in order to grasp a greater understanding than those who study the same major at a larger school or conservatory.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: A big focus on campus lately is sexual assault prevention. All RA/CA/AC/ faculty/ staff go through specialized training to help prevent as well as know what to do after it has happened. I do not have a fear of being on campus. Walking off-campus is a whole other story...

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: There are many different themed stations in our one cafeteria. For the most part, there's always something you can find to eat. The hours really suck for anyone involved in sports, though, because it is usually closed by the time practice lets out.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am thinking of going greek myself. Greek people are great and do not judge people for not being greek.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Springfield is an okay city. There is not much to do for students and there is a big gap between the students and citizens of the town.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Woodlawn, the all girls dorm. The rooms are surprising spacious and the building is beautiful.

It all starts freshman year when you gather as a class in Commencement Hollow, nervous about starting over and making new friends. Little do you know that the upcoming four years will yield some of your closest friends and most unforgettable memories. No matter if you are interested in sports, leadership activities, the arts, or any other number of things, Wittenberg can give you a college experience that is the perfect fit for you. Once it's all said and done, graduates of Witt all say the same thing: "Wittenberg has become home."  

Whether it's sledding down the hollow after the first snowstorm of the year, cheering one of Witt's many athletic teams to victory, or simply just losing track of time in the CDR (Center Dining Room) with friends, Wittenberg leaves a mark on all students' lives. Wittenberg prepares its students for life after college—not just academically but socially. Students are prepared not only to be leaders in their field, but also leaders in their community. You can see this by the University's strong commitment to community service and through the motto, "having light, we pass it on to others." With Witt's beautiful campus, dedicated faculty, driven students, and overall welcoming atmosphere, it will remain a great university for years to come.
