William Jewell is a fantastic school. It is more difficult for transfer students to fit in than it is coming in as a freshman. The campus is super small, which is actually a great thing, especially in the crazy Missouri weather. The faculty/student ratio is 16-1 and most of my class sizes are smaller than that, making it easy to access your professors and other students for questions. The academics are above average - they are super difficult but so worth it in the long run. You will gain a lot academically and real world experience wise attending Jewell.
William Jewell prides itself on critical thinking. This is something with which the college excels. The academics are rigorous, and the faculty is first rate. There is an incredible greek culture at the school, which retains a small, liberal arts feel. The college provides a great opportunity for athletics, and truly prepares its students for post-undergraduate life. The relationship with Oxford University is also a plus. There are certain headaches associated with the school, like a lack of off-campus housing, tuition costs, and outdated facilities, but the positives far outweigh the negatives.
Overall, this school is a good investment, though there are some things that are problematic. It is mandatory to live on campus, which really hurts the budgets of many students since on campus housing is more expensive than off campus housing. The cafeteria services are ok, generally fine, though the hours that they are open are really inconvenient to students, especially on weekends. The professors are almost always available and work hard to make sure you understand, which is easy with the small class sizes. The campus itself is very safe and the campus safety officers work hard to keep it that way.
William Jewell College is an exceptional school for driven students who plan on doing anything from rising the corporate ladders of a business to getting their doctorate. The students become extremely close and develop long-lasting relationships since you have to live on campus all our years.
It is a small college where almost everyone is in greek life and playing a sport. But it is a really great community, where everyone is willing to help. There are many different types of groups, so you probably won't feel out a place. The professors are always trying to help and always try to understand our dificulties.
I took a visit for football and absolutely loved the place and it felt like home even though I live no where close to the state nor campus and everything was so great about it from the classroom to the rooms and it’s a very nice campus
