The college is great for educational purposes. The mission statement is really lived up to when enrolling at Wiley College. However, like any other university or college, students are a big distraction when one is trying to reach his/her academic potential. Overall, I have had some rough times and great times as well. I have successfully made it and will see the light at the end of the tunnel on May 7, 2016. Thank You Wiley College for all that you have given me in knowledge and finance.

Kezia

Wiley College is a great college for students who's not able to afford college and for having a close bond with the staff. If you're not used to going to a big college and in need of anything, this is the right place to be. There's some great staff here who will be there for you and gives you that support as if your family.

IYahny

Wiley college can be considered a wonderful college to attend , yet to me it’s not challenging enough. I want to be pushed out of my normal learning habits , I want to be forced out of my comfort zone , and I want to be able to interact in the class room more. Wiley college is the college for students who love a small community and land. Yet for myself I would love to see new faces on the daily , learning more people names, and coming across different cultures. Wiley overall is a wonderful hbcu if anything , abd I’m glad I started here but I want to end some where bigger.

N'dia

My overall opinion of Wiley is that it is a good school to attend because it is small and classes are small so that makes it easier to learn. The down side to it being a smaller campus is that everyone knows every ones business. but the administration and the staff are doing what they can so that they can improve the campus to make it better.

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

    Before coming to this school I wish I known how my decision to leave college at 19 would affect my adult life. Not that I have had a bad life but I believe things would be different if I had persevered through the hardships. Funds were limited and I was not mature enough to innovate ways to work through this. If I had I would not be a 49 year old college student now. On the bright side, I am enjoying college. Being an adult student proposes challenges but I have a sense of accomplishment just from returning to school.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about school is learning to manage and balance the stress from both school and social life. The school will stress you about needing so much financial aid but does not fully provide you with assistance. You would figure they would give a little hand with you having courses and coursework. so i have to fend for my higher GPA and finding financial aid. Not saying its not my responsibility, but that is pretty frustrating. I have to just shake it off and let my maturity shine through.
