I came to MUW in 2004.Math
I came to MUW in 2004. I didn't really know where I wanted to go to college but I had a few friends from High School applying so I thought I would give it a shot. Well I am very happy I did. MUW gave me a full paid scholarship, wonderful education, and awesome experience in my 5 years there! This is not a research school so there is not much research for a Mathematics student to partake in. However, the Science program is excellent and has many labs in which to work. I feel that my Mathematics professors were as knowledgeable as any professor from any other Universities. These professors are caring and helpful and really go out of their way to help all their students. You won't find a better place to call home your undergraduate years! Now as far as student life goes, there are plenty of clubs and social clubs to get involved in. The food used to be better but gradually got worse as the years went on, haha...but isn't that everywhere? But there is always the Goose which has been on campus for I don't know how many years. They serve hamburgers and fries mostly! Anyway, I just wanted to give you a sense of what college at MUW is like! You will feel at home and welcome!

I am a transfer student form Thailand butQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I am a transfer student form Thailand but I've been here for almost six years already. I don't know much the sultural student life here in the US but in Mississippi, it is sort of hard to get along with people that are not your race or religion. It actually took me 2 years to get into the university. Overall of the university is very small, constantly in the process of maintenence year round. Professors are depends to the faculty, but my advisor is very nice (Dr. Dee Dee Larson), other than her I don't know any other professor that is friendly enough to even talk to.

The W taught me leadership skills that IMath
The W taught me leadership skills that I would not have developed elsewhere. The campus is great, small but not cramped. The professors were, and likely still are, superb. Because the W is a school for students and not research, my largest class had just over 35 students. Most classes had ten to fifteen. Being involved in campus activities makes all the difference. Great school for any girl who is looking for a place to shine as a leader, student, friend and person.
