3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Haven't owned any off campus spots.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Nothing wrong with this. Kinda boring, but decent food.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Visitation is whenever honestly. Pretty cool with that. But let me say the internet connection is the worst in existence here. You cannot watch anything or do anything at all. Better like playing in the snow.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Pay enough money to park in the garage that is sort of out of the way and a hassle or pay less to park exiled across the river and a healthy 25 minute walk.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: A barren wasteland of frigid cold and lifeless streets awaits you here. Bring your bulletproof armor though, It's not scarce with crazy people.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: I like rifkin and gambinis, but the food in henry's just always leaves me at least a bit dissatisfied. Even if I did like my meal. Staff is nice though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are pretty old and have outdated appliances. Known to have bugs and bats in them sometimes. While some other halls are newer and obviously better.

Health & Safety: I feel safe with university public safety officers roaming around all the time to ensure safety. and in case any body feels insecure they provide officer escort service at a call away.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Its kind of good. The school must allow in-semester off if required because at times it helps student deal with situations better. otherwise teachers are very understanding and always ready to help and motivate fro excellence .student teacher sessions which i find to be very interesting concept breaks that ice of harsh strictness and creates a bond of understanding among students and teachers. teachers are excellent advisers with experience

2 College Sophomore

Administration: Public safety and local police are seen during the day. However, they are not always around at night and are not very proactive with patroling. Many assaults have occurred this year and they are not always prompt with taking action.

Off-Campus Housing: Prices typically are not too high for offcampus housing depending on the landlord and location. Housing near campus is somewhat safer than housing that is farther away.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: The campus itself is nice, but the local area is not always the safest to walk around in. There is a variety of things to do in the area, but they may require transportation. Locals are not always super receptive to college students but I have not had any issues personally.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many restaurants within ten minutes of campus that are easy to walk or drive to. They all have reasonable prices and hours.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: The people of Wilkes-barre are a little creepy but everyone on campus is great.

4 College Junior

Administration: The policies are far and just.

Athletics: I played on the basketball team for a year and there is a large sense of family and teamwork. The team is constantly doing things for the community as well as games dedicated to alumni and family days for parents to come enjoy the weekend with their students.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The cost of living on campus is very expensive and I lived in Evans my freshman year which is a co-ed dorm where there was a lot of noise and distractions.

4 College Junior

Local Area: There are many things to do in Wilkes-Barre that are only a short drive off campus. Many shopping stores and a mall. The arena hosts many concerts and productions that keep the area very busy with lots of different restaurants to choose from.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The overall experience reported by most Wilkes students is overwhelmingly positive. The outstanding mentoring environment, caring faculty, wide array of student activities, and some darn good academics overshadow the occasional blizzard and unfavorable happening on campus. The positive experiences had by students are backed up by Wilkes's positive retention rate, the percentage of people who start and finish at Wilkes. This means that people like the campus enough to hang around, rather than transfer out. Homecomings are bigger and better than ever, proving that the Wilkes experience was so positive, alumni love coming back to visit-and donating to the school. Finally, many Wilkes graduates return for a second Wilkes experience through the acclaimed MBA program or one of the other fine master's programs.

Hands-down, Wilkes is truly a school where undergrads get the full college experience. The campus is a beautiful place to be, a very green campus for an urban institution. The city of Wilkes-Barre has improved dramatically in the past few years, presenting tons of things for students to do off campus, but perhaps the asset most responsible for an overall positive experience is the mentoring environment fostered between students and faculty, students and alumni, students and administration and even students and students. At Wilkes, you feel truly cared about. And once you are gone, you are missed and remembered.
