Overall Wingate provided a great experience and goodBusiness - Management and Administration
Overall Wingate provided a great experience and good education. Alumni network and career planning are weak due to current staff.

Brittany, the person overseeing Alumni relations at the University has done little to foster an active Alumni network.

Other schools have better alumni associations that can help with getting your first job, career transitions, etc.

I transferred in andQuite BrightMusic Education
I transferred in and it was the best decision I have made concerning college. I love Wingate. I have a couple odd prof's but the majority care and really are passionate about the students and their area.

I have a very mixed review of WingateLanguage - French/Spanish/etc.
I have a very mixed review of Wingate University - I transferred in 2003 and graduated in 2005. Overall, I loved my professors, but found the campus social life stifling and administrators focused more on running the college like a business.

The good - the professors in my majors (Spanish and Sociology) were great. Very motivated, encouraging, and recognized my potential. I spent a good bit of time outside of class socializing with them. I do wish, however, that profs would have been more demanding.

The bad - I was accused of a felony by another student based on a series of events. Dean Bill Nash was horridly unprofessional about the matter. He sent me a threatening matter, even with lack of evidence to support the fellow student's claim. I was once made to wait for him 45 minutes after he asked me to visit him for a scheduled appt. - he was busy meeting with athletic coaches. I was ultimately sent a threatening letter from him warning me that my status as a student would be threatened if I ever spoke to the student again. Never did he listen to my side of the story. Talk about a lack of leadership!

Campus life - dominated by Greek life (despite having 1,000 or so students on campus), if you don't like sororities/fraternities, you probably won't like the campus.Word of Advice - Wingate is (and was when I attended) exorbitantly expensive for no good reason. The school has no notable alums, no outstanding programs, the campus life sucks, and the town smells of turkey plants and despite being semi-rural, you can hear the trains pass every hour or so. Unless you get a good scholarship, invest your money elsewhere.
