3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are enjoyable unless you are around the wrong people.

5 College Freshman

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Do not live off campus

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Love it great for late night

3 College Freshman

Administration: Cops Give out parking tickets a lot, always pulling people over

College Freshman

Scholarships: I did not apply for financial aid

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not that much of a night life since it's a small school. Some parties are lame, some are fun

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There should be more options at the dining hall

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Right now, I do not live on campus. All of my friends live on campus and say they love it. Can't wait to live on campus next semester :)

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Orientation was very helpful. Not only did I make friends, I also received plenty of information on how to finish my application process. They were quick to help you on things that you did not understand and you were able to finish some paperwork during orientation.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Overall their athletics are okay. They have a decent fan base and perform well in comparison to the local New Jersey colleges, but they are not known for their athletics. Being a transfer student from a school that focused so much on their football and basketball teams, WPU is honestly very different from that.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: From what I heard, its okay. I have been commuting to campus so I do not have an experience on trying to find off campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The academic department is great. They help you a lot and get your questions answered very quickly through email. Since I work and am a student at the same time, making an appointment with my adviser was difficult. But she was able to help me through my email so an appointment was not necessary. They are very convenient and overall very quick and informative.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: There are plenty of scholarships available for students. Unfortunately, details about these scholarships are limited. When I finished my application as a transfer student, I tried to apply for a transfer student scholarship and I was denied because I applied too late, even though the transfer student application deadline was way later. I wish I had more access to scholarship information before the deadlines.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Honestly, the party scene is very dry here. Most students go home on the weekends. Also, I tend to go to nearby house parties or end up going to Rutgers instead.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I only lived home and in White Hall & Overlook South. I know few people who have lived in off campus housing. It isn't provided. However, you can find flyers on campus occasionally looking for renting students.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Munchies good for Mexican cravings and is very cheap, but the staff is kind of rude. Brother Bruno's is slow and slightly more expensive. The local diners are moderately expensive, but friendly.

3 College Junior

Administration: Policies are in place to save trouble. However, when something happens only the University knows and little information is shared with the student body, which is both good and bad. Admin is helpful when they want to be.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The financial aid office are full of lifeless robots. They have little sympathy for problems that they cause themselves. They lose forms, give simple explanations, and seem to care little when something goes wrong.

2 College Junior

Party Scene: Parties were cancelled in 2012. Willy P students don't know how to restrain themselves when given party privileges due to drinking. You're more likely to have fun by joining a club/organization on campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The W is your best better. The food there is slightly pricey, but tastes good. The dining hall often has new lunch and dinner options with occasion cultural dishes. The meal plan is best used in the dining hall. The limit in the food court is too low.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Cost of dorms are pretty high, but adult dorms are a bit cheaper. Food and dining is average. Some events occur on campus, but not many. Parties were canceled my second year, but the school has tons of clubs and organizations.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never tried finding off-campus housing through my school. If anything I wouldn't try to because I'm sure it would be overpriced here in Wayne, NJ.
