4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone I've met so far has been helpful and great

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have a career center that helps students find jobs on campus, off campus, internships, and eventually, jobs. I have only gone once, but the one time I did, they set me up on a site that would help me find a potential job in the future. They gave me names of alum who had graduated with similar degrees for connections, and answered all the questions I had.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall, Wittenberg is a very safe campus. The only downside is that we are located right next to the population that lives in Springfield ("Townies"), who will enter campus every once in a while. Most of the time, however, they do not cause any trouble. There is an escort service to pick up people at night, or if they feel endangered, and can be reached any time. The campus police often bike around campus and are pretty nice. (Just from having a conversation about some sketchy guy they had escorted off campus)

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Our housing is overall pretty good. I have been a little spoiled, living in the newest hall on campus (New Hall), but I lived in Tower Hall last year, and it was not all that bad. My room was bigger in Tower, but New Hall is cleaner and prettier. Woodlawn is the all-girls' dorm, Firestine is considered the "athlete" dorm, and Ferncliff is pretty far from everything (but a beautiful building). Myers is the honors dorm, but does not have air conditioning and has oddly shaped rooms. The cost of living is relatively high (lower 2K for doubles in everywhere except New, mid-upper 2K for singles and rooms in New)

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Again, I do not know too much about Greek Life, but the friends I do have really enjoyed their experiences so far. Greek life is pretty popular, but you do not have to be a part of it to attend all the parties or gatherings. They do a lot of philanthropy on and off campus, and are generally seen as good people. There are houses for most of the sororities and fraternities, if not, all of them.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I honestly do not know too much about athletics at my school - I know that our football team is one of the best when it comes to D3 schools. Our volleyball teams also do very well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The best thing about Wittenberg University is its professors - they are extremely engaging, helpful outside of class as well as in class, and actually care about their students' problems and success.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus itself is somewhat a bubble, i feel completely safe on campus. Although the city of Springfield raises a couple causes for concerns.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a verity of classes to pick from, the only negative i have to say about academics is the amount of Gen-Eds that are required. Class sizes are small, which makes for great relationships with professors and help is very accessible.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although I am only a freshmen, I am aware the great networking Wittenberg has in the real world. I take proud in knowing my whatever degree I choose to pursue, graduating from Witt is a prestigious accomplishment.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life plays a huge role on campus and is viewed as a positive thing around the campus. There are plenty of sorority and fraternity housing available.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: School gets behind athletic teams. Facilities are older but soon to be replaced with state of the arch facilities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wittenberg is a great university, that offers the best in academics as well as a great social life.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Wittenberg is located in an impoverished neighborhood that has a high crime rate so it is easy to feel unsafe however, the campus does a great job at keeping us up to date on issues around campus and ways in which we can keep safe.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that I get to work individually with my professors and that they show an interest in how the course pertains to my own major.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Since the first semester I have been working in schools which has allowed me to network within the community and find possible jobs for the future.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The rooms are a great size and the lottery system was easy. However, the hall is not kept clean and there isn't a sense of community.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is a huge part of Witts campus and creates great bonds within the community. It allows people to find a home apart from just being a Wittenberg tiger.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: A lot of people are involved in sports but they do not get a lot of support from the campus

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Witt is great because I am challenged academically and encouraged to partake in various activities and organizations

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Class times often overlapped and scheduling was very difficult. Often, classes filled up quickly or were only offered at certain times.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The alumni network is extensive and very helpful in future job opportunities and in giving back

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is common and under-reported due to the lack of resources on campus and ineffective handling of sexual assault.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

It all starts freshman year when you gather as a class in Commencement Hollow, nervous about starting over and making new friends. Little do you know that the upcoming four years will yield some of your closest friends and most unforgettable memories. No matter if you are interested in sports, leadership activities, the arts, or any other number of things, Wittenberg can give you a college experience that is the perfect fit for you. Once it's all said and done, graduates of Witt all say the same thing: "Wittenberg has become home."  

Whether it's sledding down the hollow after the first snowstorm of the year, cheering one of Witt's many athletic teams to victory, or simply just losing track of time in the CDR (Center Dining Room) with friends, Wittenberg leaves a mark on all students' lives. Wittenberg prepares its students for life after college—not just academically but socially. Students are prepared not only to be leaders in their field, but also leaders in their community. You can see this by the University's strong commitment to community service and through the motto, "having light, we pass it on to others." With Witt's beautiful campus, dedicated faculty, driven students, and overall welcoming atmosphere, it will remain a great university for years to come.
