4 College Freshman

Scholarships: In terms of normal universities, the financial aid is really good. But being an international studemt, there is a quota that the college can give upto. So not everyone cam afford it.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I am not a party person and do not like going to one. So I can't rate anything.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is full of variety and is occasionally delicious. Whether you want to eat healthy is upto you though.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The academics part is amazing. There are so many opportunities to move forward and the professors are very compassionate, qualified and great teachers.

The campus is in a small town, but the community is cery strong and welcoming, including the faculty, staff and the student community!

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They're not in the best financial situation right now, but they offer an okay amount if you have good enough grades in High School.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are literally no good options. Fraternities and Sororities were banned from houses so everyone lives in on campus dorms. School is so small that everyone ends up in the same place at the same time and few have any fun. The only passable experience is if a friend lives in a program house, but even then if it gets too big it'll inevitably be busted and clear out.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I'm a little picky with food, but food here is bad on anybody's scale. Bland, mushy veggies, dry meat, limited vegetarian options. It's liveable, but the best options are usually the customizable ones in Lowry or just snack food from the C-Store.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus dorms really vary for each building. Buildings like Douglass have big rooms and nice storage space while buildings like Wagner struggle to fit the bed frames into the room for a double. Move in is relatively easy though, and the housing process is simple and fairly accommodating.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The college is located in a small town outside of amish country. They aren't many activities outside of the school to participate in, but there are many places to shop.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Parties aren't a huge part of the social experience, but definitely are available if you so choose. Multiple parties are held every weekend on many spots throughout campus.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The College of Wooster is really great at giving financial aid to those who have worked hard in their previous high school careers and who are financially in need. The college tends to just give away mass amounts of money to students who need it without them even having to apply for them. Almost every student on campus is receiving some sort of financial aid.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The school is very lenient in their strictness to violations of policy. We have our own judicial process that varies in severity that a student is to go through if they were to violate the schools policies.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. It's very small, so it's very easy to get to your classes in a reasonable about of time. The longest walk may be a little less the ten minutes. Dorm rooms are very reasonable in size and the options of living spaces get greater as you advance through your school career.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The is no extravagant application process, which makes it relatively easy to declare a major or double major, if you so choose. The only difficulty I have encountered with this process is when declaring a double major you have to go through more steps, usually in the form of more signatures from higher ups, in order to be accepted.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The are emergency phones placed all over campus and security drives/walks around campus all day long. You have swipe card access to every building in case of an emergency. The school/staff/students take sexual assault very seriously and take many precautions to prevent and to help victims.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing is accepted but not encouraged.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've had a great overall experience here at the college. Of course there are things that are not perfect but I wouldn't trade my experiences for the world.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school could be a tad more diverse. However, it is a very accepting campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had a great experience at the college. Academics are fantastic. I have never had a class of over 25 people and have had very caring professors who are passionate and try to make classes interesting.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Great community of people. However, it is not the preppiest college if someone is looking more for that. We are a very diverse community that celebrates people's differences.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I have had no problems with my major and many of my friends never do as well. Most people major and minor in something or even double major. Students here are very passionate about learning and academics so hearing someone doing multiple majors or minors is not uncommon.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Internships are hard to find at Wooster. I have done a few event planning internships for my department but that is really it. The career center is great with cover letters and resumes but is not the best with finding people internships or jobs.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: The campus is beautiful and always has fun activities, events, and traditions.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was able to go to this school because of the scholarships I received!

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is great. However, their new party policy does need some fixing but it is still a new process for them so they are still learning what is best.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Wooster may not be perfect. But although there are aspects of the school that students wish they could change, most say that overall they couldn’t see themselves at any other college. They say the combination of its small size and involved campus community provides an atmosphere that makes them happy to call Wooster their home. Learning transcends beyond the classroom, and professors treat students as a person, not a number.

Wooster, Ohio is obviously not a glamorous destination spot, but the College of Wooster is much more than just where it is located. Instead, the memories you make and friendships you gain are what are important. And decades after graduating, alumni love to see the familiar cornfields and cows, reminding them of their college days at Wooster.
