Before going to William Jewell I wish I had invested more time looking into scholarships. The tuition is high because the college is private. William Jewell College hands out generous scholarships but it does not cover the rest of the cost. So I would suggest investing a great deal of time into looking at all kinds of scholarships. Even with the high cost of this college the education I am receiving is well worth it.
I wish I would have done more research into school spirit. The college lacks school spirit at every sporting event. It is hard to get people excited about the activities that take place at William Jewell.
I wish I would have known that William Jewell College has an extremely challenging curriculum and takes a lot of studying outside of the classroom. High school was not challenging for me, so I never really learned how to study but studying is crucial to being a successful student at WJC. I also wish I would have known to get involved. There are extracurricular clubs and activities for everyone and they help balance the stress from the coursework.
I do wish I had known about the core curriculeum and how my "electives" don't really count towards my major or the core. Meaning they were completely useless other than to be counted as hours attained for year status (example: sophomore, junior, senior status hours).
Tutition would continue to increase
How many opportunities there are available here, and how available and willing to help students the professors are. I also would've liked to know how much writing is involved academically.
I wish that I had known about the potential for tuition raise. They raised tuition 6.4% this year, but did not raise financial aid at all.
