What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is mediocre at best. They lure students in with a scholarship and when they see the GPA disqualifies you they take it away instantly. Food isn’t good I typically use meal swipes or end up paying extra for food out side of the cafeteria. The class sizes aren’t that small most of the classes have 25 students in them. Professors also aren’t very friendly and tend to be busy. The campus is small and outdated for the cost of tuition. The dorms also are very small for freshmen and don’t have air conditioning. A state school could get you a better education for less.

So far, it is okay. However, the people are very nice, yet I still very lost. Even though, there a lot of resources. Financially it is very confusing and unorganized.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Widener University is a school where the university makes sure that you succeed. If you fall behind, someone is there with a solution or a plan that you can go with. the campus itself is doing great things for the community around it, with outreach programs and schooling opportunities for the children around the school. The people that make up the university are amazing and there to make sure that this is going to be the best college experience that you can get. Its a great school with not a lot of buzz around it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm only attending Widener University for graduate school. On the academic side, the school is amazing; there are some staff and professors that need a lesson in empathy and sympathy though. However, I have noticed that the campus does cater more to the undergraduate population. The amenities are not conducive for the graduate programs. I stayed in graduate housing for a little bit and it was definitely not the best and it wasn't located in the best type of neighborhood. You can tell that they haven't been renovated in a long time. In addition, the hotels and restaurant choices surrounding the institution, need a little upgrade as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At the univeristy I am in the Accelerated BSN program, I am not on campus during the day. The campus is very beautiful and feels like home. The program is big it does not require for students to take an entrance exam. They will just have to have good grades and not repeat the science course.

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.
