My experience at Wilmington University has been amazing. I am an undergraduate in the College of Technology. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, they genuinely care about their students' success. There are abundant resources from the computer labs, to the library, and online resources. The courses are affordable, tailored to fit in any schedule, and actually helpful! I have never taken a class at Wilmington that I haven't used in further studies or work. They also have a wonderful co-op program that helps you get hands-on experience while getting class credit AND getting paid.

School so far has been good especially transferring to a new university! The transition has been good and I am now satisfy with the school that I am in. The teachers are amazing & helpful and the tuition isn't too bad compared to other universities. I changed my major to business because of the great program my school has. Overall, I look forward to my remaining two years at Wilmington University
