What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoyed the tour and the campus. Widener is definitely one of my top choices. I was able to have the opportunity to see the dorms, the classrooms, and get a feel of what the Widener college life is like. After spending a day at Widener, I applied right away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The curriculum is good however I am the target of bullying and do not feel taken seriously by the leaders of the nursing program. I'm being told that its only my perception when I complain of my concerns for safety. A student almost got me with her car and I am being told it was not caught on video after I was already told it was.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall this school is a rip off. They charge a ridiculous amount and find ways to constantly be billing students for something. There is constantly some kind of hacker alerts being sent to my email so I never know what information I can trust. I only had a good relationship with a few professors. I had multiple professors tell me I wouldn't make it in my chosen profession (based off my grades not my skills). I am excelling in my profession now that I left Widener. The professors only teach to accommodate one type of learning style and choose favorites. There are limited places to go unless you have a car. The whole surrounding area is very unsafe. I lived off campus because it was cheaper to buy a house next to the college than it was to stay in one of their old run down dorms. My house was robbed, and the school that has video cameras everywhere including facing directly at my house, would not release the tapes to the police for them to review and get our stuff back. If you choose to go here just know that everyone goes home on the weekends and campus will be empty. The cafeteria would only stay open until 7pm and never made accommodations for student athletes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Widener is the small school with a big heart. Faculty and staff care about students as human beings first. They are approachable and professional if students need help with anything academically, athletically or personally. Widener provides so much that students and staff at every level want to give back to the local community. The administration considers the global impact on faculty, staff and students with their decisions. Going to work everyday and being a graduate student brings me personal rewards knowing I am at a university that nurtures the mind and spirit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

it's awesome. The instructors are great. I take an online curriculum so as far as the actual school I can't say much. I know I get updates all the time about the goings on at the school from academics to sports and the school is very active in social problems. There is leadership training you can take outside of your classes to help promote yourself as a leader. There is great pride in the various sports programs. The online program I am taking is educational and filled with information that I can use to better myself in my chosen career. The instructors are always there for you if you have a problem.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Widener is Avery good school . The student culture is very friendly and interactive. The professors are very knowledgeable and crafty in ways to keep the class engaged. They also are accessible for the student as as well as return emails in a timely manner! I am not much of a sports buff, but I receive emails regarding sporting events regularly and see groups of sport participants in my travels on campus. Overall, my experience at Widener University had been exceptional!! I would truly encourage others to attend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I chose Widener University for nursing school because it has a very good reputation in the nursing community. I was a little bit hesitant to choose this school because of the area surrounding it. Widener university is an academic island surrounded by the drug ridden jungle of Chester, PA. It has one of the highest crime rates in the country. Last fall there was a span of 6 reported murders in a span of just 11 days. However, I feel safe with Widener University's campus safety and the local police department.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I actually really like Widener. I cannot to wait to go there for the 2018 Fall semester. The campus just feels like home. It is small, everyone is friendly, everything is close by, and etc. I am really looking forward to the education opportunities offered at Widener. I wish to major in Biology with a Pre-Med track. I will shadow doctors at Crozer Keystone hospital. I am also looking forward to participating in extracurricular activities such as fraternities and student government. Finally, I will work on providing service to the community of Chester.
