4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Just wish we had air conditioning...

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Everyone is nice and they do a lot of activities.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Division 3 just isn't very popular.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are so many opportunities you can't be bored.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Better than enlisted man's barracks.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: I speak from experience as a former t&f & xc runner. We are in the process of paying for a 160 meter indoor track that will never be used because 160 meters is too much turning and leads to injuries. Too much to ask for the extra 40 meters. No one really follows athletics too closely that I know of because 60% of the students are athletes and solely into their own sports, which is respectable. Football gets their own gym but good luck to anyone else who wants to work out.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's pretty hellacious here. Mostly because of the lack of gluten free options for celiacs like me and the horrendous coaching staff for track and cross country that drove me to quit the teams.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All my professors accept for one my first year were very friendly and more then welcome to help you.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I heard the alumni network is very good.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Officers on campus are friendly.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing freshman and sophomore year are not too bad, but not great. Housing for junior and senior year is apartment style and is pretty nice. Senior year you get your own room in an apartment with three other roommates.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Not in Greek Life, but most people who are in it absolutely love it.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since it is a small school a lot of people are involved with sports. I do not attend a lot of sporting events, but there is normally a decent turn out since the school is small you go to sporting events to support your friends.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the small community. People are very friendly and professors are easy to talk to. Housing for freshman and sophomores are okay, but pretty nice for junior and senior. Not in greek life, but a lot of people really like it.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Once again I visited in a senior dorm and I loved it! However I'm not sure as to how realistic that is to the freshman.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: They have an outstanding track team however during the tour the skimmed across sports teams.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I had a scholarship overnight stay and I learned about how there isn't much diversity at all and that the frats and sororities welcome minorities but aren't very diverse either. The male to female ratio is good. The dorms were very nice however, I stayed in a senior dorm so it was very spacious and conditioned.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe but area surrounding is not

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school and there isn't much I would change about my experience. It may be a small school but if you put yourself out there you can get to know a lot of pretty great people. Also, the opportunities that have been presented to me through W&J I know I can't get anywhere else.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The network that comes from W&J is almost limitless. There are so many unknown connections that stem from this school that most people don't realize. It also has a terrific reputation that most people acknowledge when you are applying somewhere.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've only had to go to the health center a few times and every time they have been great. I have heard stories from people that are opposite of my experience.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is whatever you want to make of it. If you want to get to know people on your floor it's easy but other floors don't have that social aspect.

Greek Life: They do a lot of great things and bring a lot to campus.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

While some students may spend the week of finals cursing all of their classes and wishing that graduation would just get there already, after a couple of months in the real world, most alumni wish they could return to their good old days at W&J. The four years spent at W&J are undeniably difficult, but they are years well spent. W&J changes its students, and most leave completely different from how they came in. Even those who continue on in the career they have always dreamed of will leave with new interests and a new perspective on that career.

Over the years, W&J has changed and improved the experiences that students can have on campus and around the world. Students are able to do independent research with the multi-million-dollar laboratory equipment in Swanson, speak with professors who have taught in other countries, or take a trip halfway around the world to study another culture. If you come to W&J wanting to get involved and take advantage of all the opportunities offered, then there is no doubt that you will get a fantastic education and have terrific experiences. However, if you come and just want to stay on campus and stick to your normal routine, you will still get a fantastic education but just might not benefit from all the college has to offer.

W&J offers chances that larger colleges or universities could never offer. Most students have dinners with the president, deans, or different professors a few times a semester, and successful alumni are always happy to help out students with career advice. While there may be other colleges that match W&J in academics, any current student will tell you that there is no comparison to the experiences that you will get outside of the classroom.
