Witt can either be the place you grow into yourself academically or the place where you waste your college years partying away. As an academically-inclined student, I found Wittenberg's professors and curriculum challenging & on-par with that of my friends who attended more "elite" institutions. You have to work hard for an "A." The profs here know their stuff. They are well-published in their respective fields & will make time for serious students. I graduated near the top of my class with multiple extracurricular, leadership, volunteer, & internship experiences & ended up with a prestigious national fellowship because of the opportunities Wittenberg provided me. However, the social scene here is *very* uncomfortable for more introverted/academic/quirky types of people (like me) due to the culture of social exclusion. Not-so-secret societies (which are basically private, invitation-only drinking clubs) haze hard. Students vie to make connections with the "right" kinds of people to be invited to join these clubs when they start "tapping" during the second semester of sophomore year. It is considered the top of the Witt totem pole to be in a secret society. Some faculty are a part of the societies. Even the clubs claiming to have more noble/humanitarian aims (shifters) have some scary initiation rites that seem to defeat the purpose of their aims. Additionally, the sports teams all haze too, as well as some Greek orgs (especially frats). I heard the hazing happening at night many times and it was honestly disturbing. This school has so much untapped potential that isn't being put to use because the administration cares more about promoting the sports and social aspects over promoting academics or career preparation like internships. The "cream of the crop" are choosing other schools, while many of the students Witt is admitting end up dropping out after a couple of semesters. If Witt continues down this path, then there will not be a strong alumni base to keep this school running.
You can easily fix dorms or serve better food or beautify the campus, but reputation is a more difficult attribute to sustain.
Wittenberg University is a college that is accepting of all cultures. It is a place that strives to help their students at all times in order for them to succeed in their chosen career paths. This is a place where the students free to come to their professors with any question at any time of the day and their questions are always welcomed because the professors want to help the students learn.

Small class size and accessbility to professors.
It has definitely made me step out of my comfort zone. In high school all I did was run track and field and participate in a few clubs. At college, its made me want to try all the new things that it offers and it has taught me how to balance school, work, clubs, and a social life. Before college I thought I would just focus on school and maybe a job...and NEVER join a sorority. Now, I'm in a sorority, have a job, am in Cave Club and Habitat for Humanity, and I'm still able to do great in school. I've taken classes I never thought I'd take and I've enjoyed them. Goin to college has really opened my eyes up to all the great things life has to offer and it has opened my eyes up to how much potential i have.
Witt's a small, liberal arts college, and it definitely has that feel. I've been on a first name basis with countless professors, many of them will invite full classes over for dinner at the end of a semester, and you really do get cell phone numbers on many of the syllabi. Professors will go out of their way to make sure you're understanding the material, and will generally be available outside of office hours-even just to say hi. The resources, such as the Oral Communication Center, the Foreign Language lab, the Math Workshop, and the Writing Center, are priceless.
Everyone here talks about the "Witt Light" and the "Witt Family," and while these sound really corny to prospectives, you learn within the first weeks and months what these really mean. You learn to embrace and pass on your light and that the people you're spending these four years with will always ask how high if you say to jump. Wittenberg is my home away from home.
There's so much to do at Witt. Nobody's ever bored. Somebody always wants to do something, and there's always somebody else to do it with. While we do sometimes tend to stay "in the bubble" of campus, leaving campus can provide some fun and memorable adventures. Intramurals are so much fun, and so competitive, and the championship shirt is definitely worth it. There's definitely stuff to do on campus other than drink, even if some people say that's all there is at Witt!
A stereotype about Wittenberg students is that we are all play and no work. But this is not the case! Wittenberg students exhibit the perfect balance between playing hard and working harder. We enjoy having fun and social experiences while at college, but are also very good at factoring in school work, academic commitments, and extracurriculars.
A lot of kids are from Ohio, yes, and we do have a lot of student athletes, but SO many of the students wouldn't be able to be here if it weren't for some sort of aid. There's a good racial mix. Witt has a lot to do once you stop hitting the books, other than drinking, if you know where to look.
Not many people like a small school for various reasons so a person attending Wittenberg needs to enjoy a small campus. Also, the person needs to be open to trying new things and meeting people outside of where they normally would. The people at Wittenberg challenge themselves and try as many new things as possible. A person isn't just an athlete or just a science major. People do community service, play sports, have a job, are on the cabinet, are in many of the different clubs. A person going to Witt needs to try new things.
The kind of friendly where it is almost creepy.
Sciences and east asian studies are among the best in the country
The best thing about my school is how small it is. The biggest classes on campus are the science classes, and even those only have a maximum of about 100 people.
I brag about our professors because they are the absoulte best! They always provide the class with their personal numbers and often have the class over for dinner a few times a semester. They are really flexible with their time and are willing to work around your schedule to make sure you are provided with the attention you need and deserve.
That I was not allowed to bring a rice cooker in my dorm.
The worst thing about my school would have to be the lack of on campus diversity. Our students aren't opposed to it, but the town around us is pretty ethnically, religiously, and politically bland, so differnt people stick out in a good way. But I'm used to a city with much more character and diversity, so it feels like I'm around the same kinds of people all the time. They are good people, but they all seem the same after a while.
Wittenberg University has a diverse student body; however, most students are deemed "preppy" and engage in drinking throughout the week. Therefore, students who do not relate to this stereotype or engage in such activies may not feel a part of the campus crowd.
