4 College Freshman

Academics: To me it feels like an extended version of high school. The workload isn't too much, you can pretty much study anywhere you want and it'll be quiet, and TA's will always be willing to help you study at pretty much any time of the day.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Wittenberg is an incredible university from an academic stand point. Your entire academic experience is geared towards helping you grow as a person and helping you find what you are truly passionate about. The professors are absolutely incredible and genuinely care about your learning. Overall the work load is by no means overwhelming as most students are involved with many other things on campus.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Witt has a very solid academic program, which well-compliments the liberal-arts nature of the university

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Being that Wittenberg is a liberal arts university, students are required to take a selection of general education courses. This allows students to be creative in their choice of courses. Students are able to take courses that interest them, even if they don't pertain to their major or minor, because they may fall in the general education requirement. Also, there is a great deal of flexibility in course requirements. For example, two art credits are required before graduation, yet for those students who may not be the most "artistically gifted," there are different English courses that are available that count for an "A" credit, along with dance, theater, etc. This type of educational system helps students develop academically in a more well-rounded way.

Professors can be very challenging but helpful at the same time. If you walk through an academic building, you will see that professors keep their doors open so that any student can stop in and ask a question, or simply say "hello." The amazing faculty most likely ranks as one of the top reasons why students love Witt. Get to know your professors; they are always willing to help and will be crucial when it comes to graduate school/job searching. Witt academics is tough but fair. You'll be successful if you keep up on your studies and use the resources that are available to you. As much as studies are important, Witt students tend to be very actively involved on campus with different clubs and organizations. So take studying seriously, but have fun, too!
