I fell in love with the school. I will be attending here in the Fall, and I can't wait for the next school year. The people here are so welcoming, and they really want you to succeed. After my campus visit, I went on the website and saw the different programs and extracurriculars they offered. They had exactly what I needed, and I thank God for allowing me to attend the university.
The staff is very helpful and understanding. They are involved in their students lives and look out for their students‘ safety even setting up programs online for their students to attend class. The food is great. A few people live for the parties on the weekend but generally everyone is really focused on their schoolwork and I don’t believe I have witnessed any drug activity on campus.
Wingate University is a great practice care University. It offers plenty of opportunities in nd out of the classroom. Sports are big priority and 80% of the students of athletes. Social events are always happening to help people get more involved and always of what is happening around them. We have clubs like BSU, SGA, Chemistry club, Chess club,etc. our Greek life is exspanding dramatically and is causing our enrollment to increase. Overall Wingate University is an amazing school and will give any student a great experience.
I really love this school they will go above the usual standards to provide students with a great experience in and out of the classroom. When a school can adjust their needs to the student population I think that speaks volumes. And Wingate does they with the annual survey to improve student experience.

That i should have moved away from home sooner. My senior year i didnt know what i wanted to do for a career and i didn't even know where i wanted to go to college yet. I wish i could go back in time and tell myself to move down to NC sooner. The opportunities down here are endless for work in the field that i want to get into. I could have also prepared myself for the life of being alone and not being able to see my family but twice a year, a week for christmas and a week in the summer. That gets tough with a 7 year old sister and i wish i could have transitioned better with that.
The best thing about my school is the one on relationship you are able to have with professors and staff on campus. A lot of students are able to find at least one staff member on campus that is willing to help at a time when we as young adults may not have the answer whether that is in the classroom or the next step in out college career. The knowledge and the resorces that our university has is helpful to all students on similar but different paths.
Wingate is the best environment for you to learn about yourself, grow spiritually, and recieve a top notch education.
My classmates are talented.
People who are looking for a big school environment should not attend this school. This school does not offer large classes, huge stadiums and to many people to count. This school is all about the small town college feel and that usually does not go over well with those who want a big time school feel such as NC State.
Wingate offers a much smaller professor to student ratio. My professors know me by name and will strike a convesation with me no matter where they see me on campus. Wingate is a tight knit community, and everyone feels like family.
While Wingate's small size and location provide many excellent opportunities, it can also be somewhat limiting. Everything needed is within a short drive, but it is almost an hour (with traffic) to Charlotte to experience the cultural and educational opportunities of a large city. Great strides have been made to improve this, but course offerings sometimes overlap or are offered infrequently, causing some tight situations with scheduling.
The area around campus is pretty boring. Charlotte is less than an hour away but as for entertain closer the options are very limited.
Liberal arts and nursing
That there were not as many food options available as other colleges have. Which can be good and/or bad in different ways
I would tell my friends that my school is great because the class sizes are really small compared to public schools and this allows for students to get closer to their professors and learn better. Smaller class sizes allow for students to have more one on one time with their professor.
athletes should consider this school strongly, over one third of the student body is made up of athletes, male and female. it also helps to come from a family to has the financial meens to help you succeed at a univeristy which will cost over 30,000 dollars a year. People who are focused on college for the right reasons and are genuinley interested in exploring new opportunities and avenues for success will enjoy this school.
