4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There are a lot of school events held during the week at the SUB. Even when there isn't, there is an opportunity to spend time with your friends and do something fun on or off campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: It is not a big party school.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: My professors are very willing to help me succeed along with my advisor. There is a lot of offered help for any situation and you feel comfortable addressing someone about it.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: It is very diverse and differences are accepted so it is rare people feel left out unless they choose to be isolated.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: You do not have to feel obligated to do what others are doing and there is a good chance people are making the same decision you are.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Work study is available to many students and is willing to have students to work if they sign up. I have used work study to my advantage during my first year and plan to use it during my second year.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I enjoyed most of my professors. There is a couple that I believe do not focus on the class and the class as a whole usually does poorly. I think end of the semester evaluations should be highly considered in order to avoid these situations in the future and Wilkes can make classes more successful.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus often feels vary safe. Sometimes I am nervous to walk places alone during the night, but when a group I feel more comfortable. The alert buttons on campus are helpful and public safety is often around.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I made a lot of friends in my dorm. My floor wasn't as social as I may have liked, but there were many people I became friends with not only in my dorm, but closer dorms also.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am a part of the soccer team. Usually depending on the sport, the amount of people to show will vary. It can also be determined by who the opponent is. I believe sports are becoming a bigger part of campus as more sports are added to the school. Other things such as marching band are also being added to get more students involved.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I was terrified to move away and go to my school. Once I was there for two weeks, I loved it so much I didn't want to come home. It is very easy to get involved and make long lasting friendships. It is also easy to be successful as long as you are willing to work for it.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I am an online student, I don't know.

4 College Junior

4 College Freshman

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far school has taught me a lot in my field of environmental engineering. It helped me gain knowledge on the current internship I have.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: The nurses and staff on campus are not fantastic, but they still care about your wellbeing and are there to provide as much help as they are certified to do.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: the campus is very diverse regarding the courses, the professors, the students, and the options you can get when dining.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Wilkes University is a great school to graduate from and you will have plenty of oppurtunities after graduating.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: We have multiple housing types. The mansions are the best options, in my opinion. Each room is different and you never know what youre going to get. The cleaning services are pretty great and the dorms are new/modern. Some have air conditioning and others do not, but it is not too bad knowing that it is eastern pennsylvania.

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.
