I wish my parents would have let me transfer as I wanted to after my freshman year. WJ can best be described as a "no fun" school. There is no off campus housing although they consider the residence halls and frat houses off campus. The basically are glorified dorms run by the school. The surrounding area is a ghetto. Social activity even on the weekends is lame at best. They do a slick job of marketing the school and twist numbers of their alumni stats but in truth the career center is laughable. They basically tell you about public job fairs that ANYBODY could research or attend. Very few prospective employers come to campus to recruit. I am not even sure why they have the career development department to be honest. Compared to other schools, it is drastically lacking in helping their students attain jobs or post grad positions. As I mentioned, I am thankfully graduating in a month and not one single friend of mine has a job or solid lead on a job lined up. Spend your money and time else where, this place is over priced and really did not provide an enjoyable college experience.

I came here because I wanted to play D3 athletics and it was the worse decision of my life. The school just is not "student friendly". The campus security is constantly hassling students and the business office ridiculously nickel and dimes you to death. The meal and housing plans suck because it leaves little options especially when you compare the costs of the different plans that they do offer. No off campus housing except overpriced College owned glorified dorms that they call residence halls and frat houses. House keeping is just plain awful. Maintenance requests were ignored or untimely. Upkeep and cleaning didn't seem to exist. Of course, the business office always had a "community charge" for damages at the end of the term. The area and town immediately around the school is sketchy at best. Directly behind the "frat and sorority" houses are government housing projects. In short the school misleads its academic success, a dump and a terrible value for the money. Buyer beware!

The students are still stuck in high school and act like it and the professors are arrogant jerks who think your life revolves 100% around their class. Unless you want to get drunk every night there is nothing to do and no where to go. Overall I've been miserable and I think I might finally give in and leave.

Not much here fun or stimulating. Professors are arrogant and typical academia types that are more interested in getting some babbling research published than actually teaching and preparing students for real life. Area around campus is a dump and the city of Washington has so many sketchy parts that it is hard to find anything to do in town. The college's administrative marketing depart deserves kudos because the image the project to prospective students and their parents simple does not match the reality. Deep very deep into their published post graduate figures and you will see. I am transferring because although it isn't the worst place on earth it just has not been an enjoyable experience and the value proposition simply is not here. Buyer beware.

People on this campus are very friendly, both professors and students. The campus is small but this has never been a noticeable problem for me and it is nice to see friendly faces when walking around campus. Professors are very helpful and some of the classes are smaller than my high-school classes, which is nice because the professors know who you are and are truly invested in your education. One thing I wish I could change about this place is the food. While the food is not terrible here, it lacks variety and the options are not always the healthiest. Washington is not the best area but the campus is pretty safe. The campus is about 20 to 30 minutes away from Pittsburgh and there are shuttles you can use if you don't have a car. The course work is challenging here- especially the sciences. Professors really are aimed at you having a full understanding of the material versus just memorizing the subject. This is nice but depending on what high school you attended may take some getting used to. The liberal arts education is very present as you will look at the same issues from multiple perspectives. Weekends are fun, some more than others, but if you are looking to attend large parties this may not be the place for you. Getting in is not terribly hard as long as you have decent grades and a okay ACT score. The college gave me very good scholarship finical aid. Altogether so far, I have really enjoyed my experience here. Tue, 05 May 2015 02:55:11 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/PA/WJC_comments.html
