Washington & Jefferson College isn't far from what you'd expect from a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania. Pretty much all of the fun social attractions are an hour away in Pittsburgh --there' s the Carnegie Museums, better stores, I recently went to the annual Japanese Cultural Festival there, Tekko-- so it can get pretty boring here on the weekends. However, the faculty and classes offered here far outweigh that to me.
W&J is a good school. The sciences are fairly strong, though it faces similar challenges as other schools- namely, a few professors who have been here for too long and should probably retire but won't. The dorms are old and so are many of the buildings, but they work. Most professors are extremely open to students, and the chemistry faculty frequently invite students to their homes for a variety of activities. On the weekends, there isn't too much to do, but it is the reality when a school is in a small suburb.
W&J is a great college. Like most, if not all campuses, there is room for improvement. Yet, at W&J you're able to grow into yourself and become the best version of yourself. With challenging academics, unending extracurricular activities, and more opportunities on campus it is impossible to not find yourself getting involved in all sorts of activities. W&J is the best institution to attend if you're interested in continuing your education or getting a job immediately after graduating. The alumni and career services are amazing and provide a plethora of opportunities for students to find employment in their desired fields.
Overall the school is a good school to go to, if you like small class sizes, available professors, dry campus, Great Greek life, and nice down to earth people that are off of campus. Safety is a big priority for our Campus Security, the one thing that I don't really like is the food it isn't bad, its just I would rather have home cooked meals, and the only people that can live off of campus are commuters.

For myself, the advice would not be how to make the transition into college life because that transition never ends. My first year at school brought new people in and out of my life, some stay for good reasons and others you find are not fit to stay. That we learn every year, but my advice to myself in high school would have to be:
" Mia, after this year you will have to do things as an adult your parents will not be on your tail watching and nagging to make sure things are done. You must take the lead from now on, stop procrastinating and apply for school and their scholarships. Or else you will be trying to apply at odd hours in the morning and ramdom times of the year for them."
Maybe I would have listen to this advice or maybe not, but some things in life are just ment to be Such as winning scholarships some people are lucky and some not, but we are all lucky to have the opportunity to continue our schooling at any level and place.
This would be the advice I would have given myself in high school.
It is a very competative college. Being that it is an Liberal Arts College, Private College, the courses are extremly trying and you really need to concentrate and want to get good grades, developing great study habbits. I don't really have any complaints though truely.
The best thing at W&J College is the small campus (1400 students total) and the small sized classrooms. Being that this is a small college, you get more one on one from the Professors/Doctors teaching the classes. You cannot be forgotten in these small classrooms of 14-25 students. The wrestling team is great as well.
Washington and Jefferson offers a lot to students who are willing to learn, ready to make new friends, love small a small city campus and who love the personal attention of small classes.
There are a lot of different kinds of people at this school. There is no real "type" of people that would do well here. Most students are caucasian, come from upper middle class families, and are academically-minded. This campus is very oriented around its sorority/fraternity community, so it is a great school for those looking to join these organizations. Everyone here just wants to make friends, so negative personalities are often unwelcome.
My classmates are all there for the same reason I am, to get ready for our careers. There is nobody acting immature. They are all ready to help you with anything they are able to help you with by just asking them. If you are in a class with students that are in the upperclass's they are awesome in wanting to help you find your way around and studying. We all treat each other with the respect we give out.
Our campus provides a very intimate atmosphere, allowing students to not only approach, but bond with professors. Such a bond allows our student body to connect with each other as well as learning more through observation and provides us with the oppertunity to interact with a person already familiar with the field, thus giving us important experience before we even reach the internship stage.

Ursuline college is best known for the nursing department, followed by the fashion department. Ursuline College also is known for the Ursuline Sisters.
W&J offers a great traditional education while staying in the for fronts new materials and techniques in each field of study.
Everyone thinks that W&J is just a bunch of intelligent people, but honestly we are very smart but we have a wide variety of interest and a diverse population. We have tons of non-academic activities and clubs. Most of the students care about grades and everything, but we also get involved in other activities then just school work.
Some of the dorms are older, but most of them have been recently renovated. There are new dorms also that are very nice and modern, being less than 10 years old.
All of my professors have known me by name and are always willing to talk with students outside of the classroom.
