4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The guys are very nice. A portion of them can be very snobbish, but mostly the guys are friendly and willing to help if you ask. They are very well-mannered and have that "Southern Gentleman" style.

5 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic facilities are clean and proficient. The team performance in sports, such as basketball and baseball, are improving astronomically. There is a lot of school spirit and many students go across the country to support Wofford sports.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek housing is being relocated. Greeks are considered by non-Greeks as snobbish and believing they are the best on campus. There are very few Greek options. If you are attempting to find a minority Greek sororities such as Delta Sigma Theta or Alpha Kappa Alpha, this college would not be suitable for you.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of off campus housing is relatively low. Landlords are nice and willing to solve situations. However, some of the nice apartments are further away from campus. The nice apartments are not in walking distance, so a car would be essential. The areas are relatively safe and high quality.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The best parties are at the Row. However, it will be relocated since the new arts center is being built in that location.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The dining options are mostly fast food places. There are no organic markets or healthy options that are within reach. The best healthy options are the next town over. The student discounts are nice such as in places like Cribb's kitchen and Papa John's. All the dining options are in walking distance, but there isn't much variety.

4 College Junior

Administration: The campus is strict on violations such as drug violations and underage drinking. Also, violations in the honor code are not tolerated and are easily punished by the student judicial commission.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The campus food is fine, however the menu could be improved. There should be more healthy options especially for students who are vegans, vegetarians, or just want to eat healthy. Chick-fila, Boar's Head, and the Grille are some options provided for at Zach's. The other dining hall is Burwell, which has a lack of variety. Eating the same thing every day is not healthy.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: It is difficult to obtain the financial aid you need. Wofford College does not ensure that their students are able to pay for their tuition to return for another year. Tuition increases every year by a large percentage, while the merit scholarships provided by the college remains the same amount. I am attempting to save enough money to be able to graduate.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is a nice and quiet environment. The housing process usually goes quickly and efficiently. Some of the dorms need to be renovated, however most dorms are very nice. The cost for housing is relatively cheap. The social atmosphere is excellent with everyone willing to help each other. Students contribute to help freshmen move in to their dorms, and ensure they are transitioning well into the new atmosphere.

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.
