The school has a close, tight-knit community feel for it in which everyone cares for each other. The professors are always around to help you learn something you are not understanding. Also, there are many good sports teams on campus as well as many activities so you are never bored.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I honestly love Wilkes and all it has to offer for students. It makes you constantly want to strive and compete for the batter and that’s what we all want. With the people and professors around campus there’s nothing that could ever go wrong. Wilkes is the place to be in my eyes.

Wilkes University is a good school but they are definitely biased towards sports and the Science majors; however, this is not to say that the other majors are severely lacking.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful, most professors are kind. As someone with health issues, I find it hard to reach out and ask for help. There doesn't seem to be much room for not being the best, which is discouraging for average students. I am embarrassed for having failed two classes. The dining hall food usually has a good variety. You are required to take certain classes that don't seem suitable for your major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Professors at Wilkes University are extremely educated in their discipline, and are urging students to pursue further research regardless of their major. I've had English professors encourage Pharmacy students to enrich their language skills. I've had lab instructors put peers on to research opportunities that are on campus, thus, extremely accessible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wilkes is a great school. I've been to one of there camps over the summer and I really like their programs and facilities. Being so close to my home is a great person too. I can save money by commuting and be close to my family. Hopefully I'll be a Colonel by Fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wilkes University is located in the sleepy little town of Wilke - Barre , Pennsylvania. Wilkes - Barre is a small town going nowhere fast. It is usually quiet and there is really not much to do after 9pm. However on the university campus there a lot of fun things going. The university tries to keep life interesting after dark. They sponsor many activities such as bingos and casino nights. These events are fun because you get to meet new people and maybe if you are lucky will win a prize. Prizes include but are not limited to electronic game systems, mac books and sometimes even televisions. Our professors sometimes mix and mingle at these events. It is a gun time for everyone who chooses to attend. Wilkes University also offers students the opportunity to purchase discount movie tickets for the movie theater in town. Students can purchase a movie ticket for three dollars. Then after class or in the evening students can walk into town and attend a movie. Downtown Wilkes- Barre also has many restaurants in the downtown alsomwithin walking distance of the University. The best thing about Wilkes is it’s a small campus with small class sizes. Professors are very accessible and approachable. They work very hard with the students to help them succeed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wilkes University provides excellent education programs. I completed my Master's Degree through Wilkes University and am now working on my Doctoral Degree. The professors are always available to help and are active outside of the classroom. Many of them travel the world helping spread education. Wilkes University prides itself in being a global university. The online courses provide a great discussion platform that allows all of us to share and discuss our ideas even though some of my classmates are in different countries.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a nice small university, with all the opportunities of a large university. There is a large number of majors to choice from as well as a variety of clubs to get involved with that may have nothing to do with your major. Everyone makes you feel welcome and professors want you to succeed, you aren't just a number at Wilkes. Wilkes-Barre can be sketchy at times and while I have never had a problem while on the beautiful campus or off campus in the small city, Public Safety is always available making sure everyone feels secure.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Wilkes. The town in which it is situated is dicey, but the Wilkes campus is beautiful and very well patrolled. I feel safe on campus. The cafeteria offers numerous selections and the food is delicious. Also, there are a number of smaller cafes right on campus and great, affordable restaurants a short walk off campus (10 minutes). Wilkes' buildings are a mixture of old, ivy, mansions, and brand new modern builds. It's a cool campus, cool vibe, and great institution.
