profs and staff are always there to provide assistance, yet expect the performance and degree of high accountability that has become standard with the intelligent and enterprising students of the school

I am so glad I chose Wofford College! The class sizes are perfect, the instructors are super helpful and patient. The course work is manageable and relevant. Wofford is a small school with large school resources.

Wofford is a great tight knit community. Its very easy to get to know or at least recognize everyone on campus. The school has a work hard/play hard environment. All the students are dedicated to academics in the week but know how to have a good time on the weekends or wednesday nights for the bars. Greek life is important at wofford, its currently in an awkward stage as the old fraternity houses were torn down and are just now being finished. There is currently a little bit of a power struggle between the administration and greek life students as new rules for the houses are trying to be put in place. But overall, great college, if I could go back I would still do it all the same.
