What are the academics like at your school?
Wofford is known for being an academically challenging school. We are grouped with some of the finest schools in the South including Vanderbilt, Davidson, Wake Forest, and Furman. This year the Princeton review ranked Wofford as the best school in South Carolina. The advantage of going to a small, liberal arts school is that in order to graduate you are required to take a variety of classes which enables you to be sure of your major choice. Statistically at Wofford you are going to graduate in 4 years (It could take 5 years if you triple major and go abroad twice). Another great thing about a Wofford education is that Wofford only has an under-graduate program, which means the professor are focused on teaching and all classes are taught by professors, no graduate assistants. The professors are very accessible; in fact I have had dinner at my government professor’s house numerous times. Classes are small averaging about 20 students, so you have an opportunity to get to know you professor and classmates. Wofford is known for its pre-professional programs and is ranked very well for its Pre-Professional programs (Pre-Med, Pre-Law etc.). A good number of students continue their education at some of the top grad schools in the country.
