This the type of school that is what you make it. If you're a person who makes friends and connections easily, you will love your time here.

Socially, it's very old school, work-hard-play-hard(er). The greek life here is tremendous and open to most anyone, and is the nucleus of social activity on the weekends.

As far as academics go, you will have endless opportunities thrown at you, everything from internships, research projects, extra-curriculars, anything to sculpt the ideal resume.

Whether or not you take advantage of them will largely define how happy you are. Being bored in some locations is more fun than in others. If you stay busy, and that's easier to do here than most places, you will be incredibly happy.

The professors are easy to get to, want you to succeed, and will bend over backwards to make you succeed. There aren't any 20-something TA's with master's degrees teaching you in classrooms with 400 kids; you'd learn from masters of their respective trades and classes of about twelve.Don't come here for the food though...

I've thoroughly enjoyed my time at W&J. The professors are helpful, the school rewards hard work, and students are barraged with a seemingly endless variety of opportunities. If you're looking for a party school or a place where you can slack off, W&J isn't for you. On the other hand, individuals who genuinely want a good education should consider this college. With the Magellan Project, ample opportunities to study abroad, and Intersession, W&J offers students the chance to experience the world in ways they might never be able to after graduating. Aside from one or two exceptions, I've had nothing but amazing student-teacher relationships. The class sizes are also exceptional; the largest class I?ve been in contained 25 students and the smallest had only 4. Essentially, if you come to W&J and are genuinely interested in learning, expect individual attention and success no matter WHAT your major. If you have goals and the drive to accomplish them, W&J is for you. If you're more concerned about parties or living in an exciting city, look elsewhere. As someone who has had the time of her life here despite the "boring" surroundings, I believe that any motivated and academic-minded individual should find a perfect fit with this college.
