i love how my school makes me feel welcomed and its easy to talk to all staff and students. I would choose my school all over again because it is affordable and felxible with work and curricular activities. It a unique school because it has a little bit of all age groups.

My experience with Wilmington University has been amazing. The staff are very helpful and knowledgeable. The professors are the best; experts in their fields, and very interesting characters. I was apprehensive about my classes until I started attending because I had just graduated from another school that was very student friendly and I was afraid that the classes would be very impersonal, but they aren't. I Love Wilmington University and would recommend this school to anyone.
