4 College Sophomore

Academics: Jewell is great about offering a variety of courses, but I often feel weighed down by the amount of work I have to do. I basically do not have free time because each class acts like its the only class I have. The registration process is difficult to navigate and frustrating with so few options available and not very flexible options.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: There isn't much ethnic diversity, probably because Jewell is an expensive private school, which limits the diversity of its students. Additionally, most of the conservative political views are suffocated by not only other students, but faculty who do not give them a safe environment to express what they believe without being oppressed. There is also a lack of religious students who attend church regularly.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I can't count how many times I have left my wallet in a open area unguarded for hours and no one stole it. Campus is very safe and there a few people on campus who I do not trust, and those people are very easy to avoid.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There have been a couple of professors that I don't think ever came to really understand the perspective of a student studying something completely different from the topic they were teaching, but for the most part communication with my teachers has been excellent and I think they have helped me achieve my personal best in their classes, no matter the grade.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Being in the honors program allows me to put some pretty rare and valuable experiences on my resume, even as a sophomore. Being at Jewell allows me with a number of opportunities to pursue local internships and career opportunities that could jumpstart my future career.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms feel and look like prisons. There are few housing options that are nice and they are pricier, further away from campus, and mostly limited to Greek housing.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life can be very political and somewhat controversial at times, but for the most part, all Greek organizations on campus are very focused on their philanthropies. Parties are rare and usually not well attended.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: Jewell does not have very good athletic teams. We may have a winning season in a certain sport, but we generally do not win championships. The events are not well attended because the playing is mediocre.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Jewell is a great fit for me as far as size of classrooms and building strong relationships with professors, but sometimes the size of the school can be limited to the courses it can provide. For example, my major is music, and I'd like to go into music business, but Jewell only provides one course in music business.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Jewell is a place that every student is to feel safe. Security is easily accessible in every aspect of campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At Jewell, teachers care about the students in each class. The teacher to student ratio allows teachers to be able to interact and get to know each student. When one struggles in a class or with a topic, students feel comfortable to be able to approach their professor about problems that they are facing and the teachers are always willing to help the best they can. Jewell makes sure that you walk away with a life time of useful education, not just an education that you used to pass a test and then forget about.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Jewell makes sure that each student is on the right path to what they dream of. They provide internships throughout the Kansas City Metro to make that possible. Jewells' courses require dedication and some students feel the need to still hold a part time job outside of school. With that being said Jewell offers a ton of on campus jobs that either are in ones field of study or one that just helps campus community. This college makes sure to provide every opportunity to everyone while making sure one is still able to strive with their education.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus life is about opening up to making new friends. Not just friends to know through college but friends that become life long quintessences. Getting accepted to William Jewell means that you have to commit to living on campus all four years of college. Some might find that as a disadvantage but Jewell college courses require a commitment of hour long studies and sometimes a heavy work load. Committing to live on campus all four years gives one the advantage of surrounding themselves with people who are in the same major. One is never without help at anytime of day or night.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not about who is better then who. There really is not a difference between people who join and people who dont. Greek life is about making campus a community.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Of course sports is a big part of every school experience. But when it comes to sports in college, it is about coming together as a whole and supporting one another whether we win or lose.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: William Jewell is not just a school. Its a place of family. William Jewell believes in creating a family helping environment. If one is stumbling, it is very easy to find someone to help you get back up, whether that is a counselor, friend or teacher, everyone is willing to help everyone succeed. William Jewell is different then other schools and its well worth it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far every staff member has been helpful and friendly. I think it is a good fit for me with the class size and easy access to professors.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: William Jewell requires students to live on campus in the dorms all four years for several reasons. The main one being due to the vigorous nature of the academic programs at WJC. The faculty and staff of Jewell want to ensure that all of the students are successful, and therefore, living on campus puts all of the students near campus where they can easily have access to the resources provided for their academic success. Also, students are recommended to live on campus all four years because it allows them to have the true undergraduate experience, which is extremely rewarding! Only those who petition for health, financial, or other extreme reasons are permitted to live away from the campus. But trust me, living in the dormitories is beneficial, as you meet a lot of great people and it is extremely convenient!

4 College Freshman

Majors: I enjoy my program. It is hard, but I'm learning great things and I have amazing professors and a supporting staff

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I'd say students are average. Not ridiculously attractive nor horribly unattractive

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's mainly fast food, which gets old, but it does the trick when you're tired of the caf food.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's really great. All the financial aid workers are very helpful, and financial aid workshops are regularly held.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams themselves are good, but as for team spirit it is lacking.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: It's a very small, quiet town. It doesn't have much of a "college town" vibe.

5 College Freshman

Academics: With it being a liberal arts college they strive to personalize learning for every student.
