Walsh University Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


Walsh Univeristy is a great school. I wish that I would have known that lot of the students attending the school are living on campus. I decided to commute to save money. I still love going to Walsh, but I may be missing out on some fun activities that are on campus. Although, I am also glad that I decided to commute because it seems like it is much easier for me to complete my homeowork than it is for students who live on campus. It also would have been nice to know some of the required classes.


With the contact the school has with the students, we are so well informed before we start that there is nothing I had to ask or wonder.


Before coming to this school, I wish I would have known all available options of majors and what they entail.


I wish that I would have known more about college and how different it is than from high school.


I would have liked to know how long exactly it takes to complete a degree because the timeline that they give you is for a person who is strictly a student and does not intend on trying to work and go to school at the same time.


I wish that I would have known more about financial aid before I came to this school because even though the members of the Financial Aid department are helpful, it is easier to have questions answered when you know what you're talking about.


I wish I would have know that the cafeteria food gets old fast! You definately get bored with it, so I buy a bunch of different foods to eat constantly. Cafeteria food is also never good for you, so watch your diet.


I wish I would have known more about the science programs here at Walsh University. The high school I graduated from the science program was very poor, so I wish I would have been able to have a stronger background with the science field considering that I did struggle in Chemistry and the Anatomy classes taught here because it is taught on a higher level, and Walsh is also known for their science programs, too.


I wish I knew that the school had many extra classes a student had to take due to the fact it is a university.


Before I came to Walsh University, I wish I would have known how demanding the nursing program was. I find it difficult at times to have a social life with the heavy workload of the nursing program. Also, nursing students must abide by a very strict grading scale, which makes it hard to achieve the grades one wants. I've heard that other majors are much easier and more manageable. I want my college experience to be a memorable and enjoyable one. So far it has not been. Many students have transferred to different schools because of this reason.


I wish I knew all of the possibilities that I would have had when I started to attend. This would have helped me to stay focused, but now I'm involved in so much. This isn't a bad thing and has kept me on my toes, but sometimes I wish I had time to focus on the things hat pertain to my majors a little bit more.


I wish I had not roomed with a teammate as you see them all the time and it makes it very difficult to make other friends. I also wish I had known about class credits and how they can impact your class scheduling and rooming assignments. I dropped a class and I did not pick one up so it affected me when I registered for classes a lot.


More information on student loans.


Honestly I had already known everything, when I came here nothing surprised me I knew what to expect. Shadowing someone at this school helped me very much I was able to have all my questions answered so I was well prepared when I came here.


I was well informed of almost everything I needed know prior to starting school. Orientation was a great thing to help students become aware of the campus and what it has to offer.


The type of displays set up by the conservative groups on campus. That tuition would rise as much as it did, as quickly as it did. Before I graduated, many of the buildings on campus closed before midnight and some buildings were off-limits unless you lived on campus. The price of food on campus is not suitable for students. There is not enough parking on campus for commuters (and residents).


I wish I would have known the kind of people that go here because it would have made my decision that much easier.


I wish I would have had better study habits before I came to college. That was the hardest thing to get used to.


Since I worry alot, It would have been nice to talk to someone and have them tell me that everything would be ok and een though tings will be difficult and challenging, I would still be able to succeed. I also with that i would have known more about my roomate and what on campus housing would be like before i moved in, instead of having to learn by experience. I think though, that I was able to learn these things quickly as I became more comfortable at Walsh Universtiy.


I wish I would've known more about this school first before I went to Akron U. Akron U. is a nice school, but its so large. You feel like just another number at that school where no one really knows you or even knows your name. When I finally started to attend Walsh I loved how the professors really were interested in educating their students, and the attention from the faculty is great! I just wished I would've known more about this school, b/c it would've been my top pick.


I wish I would have known about how strict they were becoming over little things.


I wish I would have known that if you don't live on campus your first year, you don't get a better dorm your second year.


nothing. It is fine just the way it is. Everything is easy to access and the staff are much freindlier than other Christian schools
