I think Wittenberg University is a fine liberal arts college. The professors here expect a lot from their students, but also offer just as much. They take a personal interest in each of their students and are always willing and open to help, or even just talk! The course quality is also quite high - being a small university, class sizes are also quite small. This gives students more chances to be recognized as a name, rather than a number. I came to this school wanting a "hands on" and personal education, and that is definitely what I received.

I took classes at Wittenberg University as a College Credit Plus student when I was in high school. The campus is really beautiful- especially in the fall! The professors had really flexible office hours and were fairly easy to get in touch with. Witt offers a wide variety of classes, and they had lots of resources to help students succeed.

So far in my first year of attending Wittenberg University I have been exposed to many things that I otherwise wouldn't have been exposed to at a non liberal arts school. The people on campus are extremely inviting and although the campus has less than 3,000 students it feel a lot bigger. The only major disadvantage to coming to Wittenberg is the cost of tuition, which can easily be lowered with the amount of scholarships and grants the school gives. I would definitely recommend this school for any student looking for a exceptional liberal arts degree and to make close relationships.
