Gardner-Webb is a small, beautiful campus with plenty of clubs to join and plenty of friends to make and we come together when events happen to make the campus environment one to live for and not to just stay coopted up in our dorms. Gardner-Webb is maybe 15-20 minutes from a lot of restaurants and grocery stores, but that is the only bad thing about the Campus. The sporting events are big too. We just won the Big South conference and made the playoffs for the first time, which is really big for our school. So, we had a bond fire that was really cool to enjoy with friends and players. Overall, Gardner-Webb is a 10 of 10 for me.
Gardner-Webb is a private university that is small but not to small to find on a map. There are very few student activities on campus for students. Most students live close to campus so they go home on the weekends. The food in the cafe is really a hit and miss. There are a few places on campus to eat but there is no place open 24-hours. The student tucker center has good food and has more flexible hours. Housing needs to be updated because some rooms have mold in them while others have cracks in the walls. Carpets in the dorms have multiple unknown stains and Gardner-Webb cleaning staff does not always consider stains to be improatant. Other than the living conditions and food the classes are good. When it comes to taking classes on campus students are required to take two religion classes. These are an Old Testament and New Testament. Some of the professors in the religious departments say they are challenging you but when in the classroom it feels like they are shoving their beliefs at you. Other classes for your major are great because they do not feel a wase of time. There are student lead worship services held on Tuesdays which is fun to attend. Campus police are very nice and always roaming campus making everyone feel safe. Campus police offer rides on the golf carts to students which is great. Overall campus is nice to live at but for how much they charge it is not worth it in the long run.
Gardner-Webb University is a school that is very loving and helpful. They care about all that involved or just visiting. They make everyone feel that they are home away from home. Yes there may not be any greek life but they make up for it in other ways. But overall Gardner-Webb is a great place to be whether for getting your education or just for a visit such as game day.
Gardner-Webb is a place to find lifelong friends, grow in your faith, serve in the community, and prepare you for the greater plan that God has for you. Our 13:1 professor to student ratio allows you to really know your professors and learn at the pace that you need. Dimensions and student led worship services allow you to not only grow in your personal faith but to lead others in their faith as well. The small town atmosphere makes all students feel safe and at home. Gardner-Webb really is one, big happy family.

Respect yourself, family, God and others. Respecting one's self because college is a totally different atmosphere than that of high school. There are things that are happening around one, that if one participates in these things they could be lost and totally forget exactly why they have enrolled into college. There is ample peer pressure that is presented and if one do not respect themselves then they are surely to fail. By respecting one self, I also mean, not having sex with every female that is out there in the world. Come to school to make friends but most of all achieve a great college education. One must first understand that one's body is the "temple of God." Smoking weed or drining alcohol is not appreciating the great blessing that God has bestowed to us. Once one gets to college they must remember what they have been taught by one's family. Do not become overwhelmed by the college atmoshphere and lose sight of your family values. One must be able to decipher between what is wrong and what is right. Respect others because college is very social and to avoid arguments just learn to respect others.
My classmates come from many different backgrounds and have different opinions about things, but they are willing to come out of their comfort zones, are understanding, and, for the most part, care about their education.
It is a small, private college. Therefore, the teacher to student ratio is very small and I find that the professors are easily accessed if needed. They are also very passionate about helping in any way they possibly can. The other schools I considered did not have this luxury and I have found that it plays a large role in my success to be able to speak easily with professors.
My school is know for its wonderful friendly/sociable environment. Great professors is what this college is based upon and the student to teacher ratio is 13:1. Those numbers are significant because students have the liberty to talk to professors one-on-one. The different programs at this school is very accredited. This school has a wonderful Baptists foundation and the university incorporates those beliefs daily.
the people that are always here to help in any way...spiritual...personal..academic
I wish I would have known that tuition was only going to increase, and extra help would not be given. I also wish I would have known that I wouldn't get any more scholarship for achieving academic success.
A school that makes you feel at home.
The expense. The way it's dead on the weekends.
GWU excels at providing students an atmosphere that is familial. Students are not just a number on a role, or a means for the University to pay the bills. They are valued as individuals and collectively. At GWU, students are active participants in the educational process. Students learn as much from their peers, as they do through the instruction - as an intentional part of the educational process. During both my undergraduate and graduate degree pursuits, I felt the care and personal attention that is a trademark of GWU. They not only expect your best, but insure you reach heights you probably thought you never would.
The worst thing about Gardner-Webb is the location. I don't mind it being in the country because that's where I grew up, but there aren't really fun things to do outside of the campus. It's a nice area to live in, but as far as activities and fun things to participate in, you are out of luck.
A Christian who is looking to further their education in a more libral setting. Gardner -Webb is for students are willing to step up and become adults, students who are ready to fulfill their roles as individuals. This school allows you to take more responsibility for yourself, rather than being forced to do something, you are highly encouraged to go out and do it yourself. It is for a student who values Christ and can stick to what they believe.
What I brag abut most when I tell my friends about my school is having a small number of students in my classes, especially my classes for my major. Most classes at other universities have between 50-200 students in the class. At Gardner-Webb you will not find a class that has more than 20-25 students in them. Having a small number of students gives you a better one on one attention with the professor. In classes that have a large amount of students its hard to pay attention because your attention gets distracted by the other students.
GWU is in a small town and it can seem that nothing is going on, but if you want to find something to do it is not hard. A lot of the social life exists on the periphery of campus (aka house parties). Bottom line is that if you are bored and complain you have nothing to do you simply aren't trying to find anything to do.
Someone who is extremely against religion shouldn't attend this school.
Class size ratios are very student friendly. The professors are passionate about their subjects, and compassionate towards their students. Student failure is personal with them. Interaction among students-students and students-faculty occur on many levels. GWU is truly an academic community, not just a campus.
A lot of people think that the school is full of bible beaters. As an atheist who goes to a Christian university, I can say that this is NOT accurate. While most students are religious, they don't shove it down your throat.
