4 College Freshman

Academics: Being a chemistry major means a lot of time in the lab. There is a study room specifically for chemistry majors. You get a cubby in the room. The professors are advisors for specific career paths (i.e. pre-med, pre-dentistry, etc.) There is also a lunch once a month for all chemistry majors and professors to get together.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Spartanburg could use some work, but most people don't leave campus to just hang out. Greenville is also not too far away.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Wofford is working its way to a more diverse college. They try to encourage acceptance.

5 College Freshman

Academics: They require a lot from you as a student, but if you put in effort, it'll work out. Professors are able to get to know you more than they would at larger colleges/universities, and they will work with you.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: They spend a lot of time on the landscape

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At first I was hesitant about Wofford, but I have grown to love it!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the small school atmosphere. The academics are rigorous, but the professors really care about you, and they will take the time to help you. There are small class sizes, so you have a better relationship with the professor. I'm not crazy about the liberal arts curriculum, but it allows students to explore different areas of study. The interim courses are a great opportunity to go beyond the typical major classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wofford does a great job of helping students get connected with opportunities outside of school, including internships, projects, graduate work, etc. The space is a wonderful resource to get students where they need to be in order to be successful after they graduate and while they're at Wofford.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: It's a private school. Most people come from money and aren't afraid to show it. A lot of people got in for a reason; they are smart, care about their grades, and have goals for their lives. Most everyone is friendly on campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I've only been once, but they were helpful. They were able to diagnose and treat everyone that I knew went there. They are good about informing professors as well.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Wofford is all about Greek life. It seems as if 85% of the school is Greek. You feel almost out of place if you aren't in a sorority or fraternity, but the small school eliminates the distance between Greeks and non-Greeks. You end up being friends with a lot of people. People in different fraternities or sororities aren't discriminatory against other fraternities or sororities either.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our basketball team gets the most recognition because of their success and appearances in the NCAA. We have nice facilities, and we are getting a new indoor stadium for basketball. I wish more people were involved with supporting the athletes at Wofford. It seems to revolve around academics and greek life more. There is always the dedicated people who consistently show school spirit, but it isn't as much as a public university.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Everyone goes to the row on the weekends, but it will be nonexistent while they build the new one. People sometimes go to seniors' apartments or just hang out in each other's dorms too.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to go around campus in about a 5 mile radius. Cookout is close, which seems to be a popular place to go as a late night meal. There are restaurants for pizza, crepes, Japanese, Thai, Mexican, etc. There are a lot of good local restaurants as well.

4 College Freshman

Administration: I don't feel as though we have a strict campus. There are some rules that they are big on, such as the honor code and underage drinking, but they offer options for students who make mistakes.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: It's a very expensive school! I did get scholarships, but I still had to get a student loan with the school grant, state grant, state scholarship, and federal loans. They do a good job of contributing some to most everyone.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It isn't bad, but I wish there were more options. Most people do not like Burwell, but it seems to be a hit or miss when you go there. I do like the convenience of Zacks. Having terrier bucks is very beneficial! I wish more places around the area let you use terrier bucks though.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You really can't go wrong living anywhere on campus as far as location goes. The campus is small enough where you could live in any dorm and get to class in a decent amount of time. I enjoy the fact that housing gets better each year, so freshman have the worst and seniors get the best. I wish that they renovated more than they have, but they are in the process of doing so. I think a little more time should be put towards housing. The cleanliness is really left up to the people in the dorm. I personally feel like the people I go to school with did not have enough courtesy to respect the property and keep it maintained as they should have.

2 College Senior

Greek Life: I think times are changing, but when I rushed the selection was very picky and people were dropped for no reason. I do not care for Sororities at Wofford College.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I live off campus only because of when I returned from studying abroad. It is rare for a student to live off campus and there is extra paperwork and exceptions that have to be made by the school.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: For the size of the city, there are tons of different options. Great local cheap and reasonably priced places. More and more places are adding student discounts or the ability to use student Terrier Bucks.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: In the past the parties have taken place at the Row. The Row is being relocated in the next year, so I assume the parties will be relocated. The best functions and parties are Frat organized or WAC parties.

4 College Senior

Administration: Wofford has the perfect balance of strictness and leniency. Do not do anything illegal or stupid and you will not get in trouble. Campus Safety is there to protect, not get students into trouble. I love all the officers!

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Food at Wofford is significantly better than many of the college campus' I toured. There are quite a few different options at Wofford that accept Terrier Bucks and meal trade out.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is fun. If you decide to go here, you should join.
