This past year was my first full year at the College of Wooster. Nothing this past year for me was a negative experience. I have enjoyed every single second of my time at Wooster during my freshman year. I'm involved in basketball and football. On top of that, academics. Being successful in all these things only happens because of the professors and coaches we have on campus. The coaches and professors are what make the experience very positive. Professors are there for students to access whenever they need help with studying or just homework. coaches are there for issues four academics, athletics, and life. Also, the people that I've been able to meet has made my experience even better. Without meeting these people, the transition to college would have been much harder. I'm so thankful to have met the people that I have met, and Wooster is the reason for that. Personally, I would not change a thing from my first year because it has been such a great experience for me regarding the beginning of my college journey. Because of the coaches, professors, and the students that I have met, the next three to four years are going to be very special.
The College of Wooster is a beautiful school that has all the best parts of a small campus. The class sizes are a reasonable size to learn and build a relationship with the professor. Everyone seems to be on campus which makes for involvement in many on campus activities.
It is a great school that offers a place for students to learn more about themselves and grow as intellectuals and scholars. Additionally, it offers students many resources, from academic support to health services to summer internship opportunities.
Wooster is a great school that is perfect for those who prioritize academics. I have made great friendships with both other students and professors. I feel very supported both academically and personally, and most importantly, I am having a great time.

The main advice I would give myself is ITS OKAY TO NOT KNOW! College is a time of learning who you are as a person in society. It is okay to change majors and explore new opportunities. It is okay to not know what you want to major in straight out of high school. It is okay to be unsure about what direction you want to take. It is all okay. College is about finding out who you really are. It is about learning how to truly develop well-rounded skills to use in all aspects of your life. So many high school seniors worry about their future; I certainly know I did. If I could tell myself anything that resonates more clearly now as a young professional than it ever did before, it is that everything will be okay. I promise.
Smart, engaging students who worked hard and had fun.
A very research and writing based curriculum with professors who put students first and a very diverse student base from all 50 states and many different racial, national, religious, and political backgrounds.
The professors. They are always so willing to help you and reach out to you. They really do care. I've been to my professor's house, and the president of the college's house. We've had academic discussions and pointless banter. You never feel inferior or left out. They are people and they want you to know that and they want you to feel like a person too.
One who wants to explore the reaches of the earth in a variety of fun, unique, and interesting classes and evolve into a well-rounded young adult with wonderful critical thinking skills. A student at Wooster wants to learn about not just their own area of interest, but about so many other world-wide interests they may not have an opportunity to do elsewhere. This person wants to take a fun new opportunity and go with it!
Those who need big cities, a large variety of restaurants or bars, and significant social involvement outside the school might not feel comfortable at Wooster. Some students who need contact with the great outdoors may also feel constrained here. There are no mountains on the horizon; students from the western states may have trouble with this. The "mountains" of West Virginia and Kentucky aren't the same as those in Oregon, Idaho and Montana.
Wooster is a wonderful school to explore and discover who you are as a person and teach the knowledge necessary to pursue your academic goals.
The independent study is incredibly difficult but it will define a large part of your college experience. It's worth every sleepless night spent at the computer or library.
the worst thing might be that the campus is really small. there's not much exciting here if you are a fun-seeker.
I talk most about the emphasis on helping those with special needs and the focus on teaching.
The meal plan was a problem when I went there, but they've since fixed it.
Wooster's Independent Study (IS), where you take a year and work on a self-directed project in your area of study, is still one of the most impactful events of my life. It taught me that I can do anything I put my mind to and the one-to-one interaction with my faculty advisor was superb.
Wooster prepares you for the future, but if you want to go on to a top graduate school, e.g., Stanford, Harvard, etc., a Wooster education is highly respected.
A good sized (1600 students) liberal arts college that gives you the freedom to pursue what really interests you. Highly dedicated professors. Great support staff. Wonderful and beautiful campus (Wooster really is one of the prettiest campuses in America).
It's Independent Study (IS) program that every student completes their senior year in order to graduate.
Wooster is not in a big city so you don't have the party atmosphere that you'll find at Pitt, WVU, Ohio State, which is good (or bad if you like that atmosphere). Even so, there is lots to do and a great social circle at Wooster.
Lots of students leave their door rooms open and the housing facilities encourage interaction.
The only stereotype I've heard is that we have an eccentric student body.
