| This was not my first choice, however I knew it was the best fit. My peers are great and most profs go out of their way to help. I had high test scores but below average GPA. This school has encouraged me to do my best. My grades are good, I have a great social life, and I am able to play a varsity sport. Go WOO. |

| I am a rising sophomore at the college, and I am planning on majoring in Philosophy. The department is great, actually I think it is one of the best on campus. I highly recomment checking out a philosophy course even if you aren't thinking of majoring in it. |
Don't get me wrong, this is a great school. The profs are very helpful and friendly. They will take time out of their day to help you with any concerns you might have about coursework, homework, grades, etc. The academics are challenging. The other students are friendly and it is easy to make friends, especially the first few weeks.
As much as I love this school, there are things that still bug me. For one, the town sucks. Literally. There are a couple of restaurants, a Wal-mart, a movie theater, and a shopping mall, but not really anything as far as night life or fun activities. You can get the bare necessities but not much else. Cleveland and Cedar Point (amusement park) are close by via driving, but there is practically no way to get there unless you have a car. On a positive note, the school does offer a few trips to events and such during the year.
2. Quite a few people in town are racist, and there have been reports of students getting slushies and other things thrown at them while walking down the street (I am one of them). These are just a few points that you should be aware of if you choose to attend COW. I am sure that you will ahve a great time and make friends etc. All in all, this is a great school to spend your college years. Yes, it has its flaws, but so does any other college.

| Wooster is one of those places that might not look like much on paper, but when you visit, there is that magical "vibe" that this is the perfect school for me! If you are interested in a liberal arts education, Wooster is one of the best places to go. The faculty are amazing, the courses are challenging and interesting without killing you, and Woo will take you great places (like your first choice law school!). |
