Living on campus is a double edged sword. Of course I wanted to live in a dorm an experience "real college life" at least my first year. The dorms at Wofford are horrendous, Especially Marsh. Luckily I got into Greene which was renovated last year, if you want to call it that. I'm afraid with my allergies, I would literally have died in Marsh! For the price of tuition/room/board at Wofford, I can see NO REASON that their dorms are in the shape they are I! I understand wanting to keep the original exterior look of the buildings, to keep the traditional feel campus in tact, but the interior of those dorms should have long since been gutted and been redone!

Wofford College has excellent academics. Although classes are rigorous, I truly believe Wofford will help you excel in all areas of life after graduation. Because it is a Liberal Arts College, you make many connections across studies that would not otherwise be noted at larger colleges or universities. Professors know each student by name in class, and are willing to invest time in and outside of class with them. I'm highly impressed with the travel abroad program at Wofford, as well as the special Interim (January Term) experience that allows students to learn about things they otherwise would never be able to learn about. I love Wofford and all that it has to offer!

One of the reasons I chose Wofford was the class sizes. Typically there are no more than 20 in a class, and sometimes much less! That is a big bonus for me. I also love the Interim term they have every January where they encourage you to step out of your box and take 4 credit hours that can be completely unrelated to your major.... just any off the wall, interesting, exciting, adventurous, artsy, crazy thing that strikes your fancy, to broaden your horizons or just fulfill some deep rooted fantasy or try something you never thought possible..... through school.
