    Great for these types of students

    Music majors; we have a tremendous music department. Education majors; heard to be the best in the surrounding area, all but positive news about this field. Missions minors; there is a missionary training program located behind Warner.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you're looking for a small school this is where to go. I dont want to say thats its a religious school but we do believe in God and if religion or Christianity scares you then reconsider. The people are great and the professors are top notch but experiencing it on your own will help you the most than reading reviews.

    Bang for the buck

    It is an expensive school because it is a private university, but its well worth it. There isnt much to do outside of the campus so its up to you to make your own fun. But besides the entertainment, academics wise; its definitely worth your money. The professors challenge you and stretch you sometimes. But you overall have to have the willingness to do good.

    Am enjoying being here

    With such a small campus, you are able to get to know everyone. Everyone knows you and its easy to get along with everyone. There are many different events that Student Life coordinates that are very fun and an awesome way to get to know other people in your school. Clubs are being started around campus and you're bound to find someone that you are similiar to on campus.

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers at Warner University are very intelligent and caring people. With the small amount of students enrolled here, each student is able to recieve that attention if needed. And teachers are willing to help any way they can to see the student succeed. Some teachers are different and are just lectured based at that point its up to you to make the most out of your education.

    Great for these types of students

    Student athletes, education, social work, ministry, and business majors. Those are our top majors. If you are an education major you are promiced a job teaching when you graduate because they have a 100% placement rate. The education program and the social work programs are phenominal.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply and get to know your admissions counselor because they are so helpful. Your scholarship award amount it sent to you with your acceptance letter, but that is just the base number. If you are considering Warner you should take a tour as well, and talk to some professors of your major. That really helped me make my decision.

    Bang for the buck

    For a private, Christian school, Warner is really reasonably priced. The also give out great academic and athletic scholarships. They work really hard to give every student a scholarship, and the financial aid people work with you to help you afford the school. I can attend Warner for less than what I would pay to go to a state university.

    Am enjoying being here

    The Student Government Association always has things going on during the weekends and most of the activities are free. The students, staff, and professors are all really friendly and kind. It's so easy to make friends here. Even though Warner is in Lake Wales and there is not much to do there, chances are the school is hosting an activity that night, or your friends have plans to do something fun.

    Am learning a lot

    The classes that I am required to take as a freshman like University experience and Christian Thought are fairly easy with little homework. The classes and interesting and I'm learning in them. All of the professors are really caring and honestly want you to learn. Classes are small, which is great because you can always ask questions. The professors are always willing to help you outside of class if you need additional assistance.

    Campus Safety

    they are very good. the secruity is driving around and walking around all of the time!! they are very good at protecting the students here at wu. my friend came to visit me and he got to my school around 10 pm and security actually followed him until he got to my dorms and then they came up to him and asked him what he was doing there. i came out and cleard things up.

    Greek Life

    we don't really have greek life. we do have two different social clubs for each gender, which is pretty close to the same thing. i was actually involved with one of the girls social groups but i didn't really like it. when i was in it we didn't do much of anything but this year they have done a lot more. you do have to rush but its not that bad, depending on which club you join. ha-ha

    Great for these types of students

    christians, christ followers, or anyone who might be interested in learning more about the christian beliefs. also if you dont really like the party atmosphere this school is great for you. there has been some problems with partying and stuch but they have been cracking down on it. you actually have to sign a life style agreement before you take your classes. no alcohol, drugs, or premarrital sex. honestly, they cant really stop you from doing any of that stuff on your on time but they are pretty strict on campus, or at least they try to be. it has happened on campus before but they are getting harsher with that.

    Bang for the buck

    the school is a private institution but compared to other private universities they are cheap. plus you truly get what you pay for. the education is very good and the professors truly are the best i have had. it is cheaper to live at home with your parents but if you compare living on your own off campus to living on campus its about the same with bills and such. they are very good at giving very student some kind of financial aid too. they have tons of jobs on campus as well, however they fill up fast so get to school early or start emailing the different departments before you actually move in in order to get a job lined up on campus.

    What to do for fun

    they have things that go on most weekends that sga puts on where they have free food and give away prizes and have games and competitions. we have a hang out/lounge area call the sub where we have pool tables, table tennis/ping-pong, snack foods, and video games as well as huge plasma tvs. there isn't much to do close off campus but we aren't too far from tampa and orlando. the beach is about 30-45 min drive as well.

    Food and Dining

    the food is decent. they always have a salad bar, pizza bar, sandwich bar, waffle bar and cereal available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. the hours they are open is very good too. they are only closed for like a hour in between each food time to prepare for the next meal. they also have 3 major lines to choose from, healthy, ethnic, and the normal lunch. they usually have different kinds of deserts available during each meal time. on sunday mornings they have an omelet bar which is really good.

    Dorm Life

    the dorms here are great. unlike many other universities you actually get to have a person relationship with your r.d. they truly care about getting to know each student individually. the r.a.s have been great each year as well. i didn't not give it 5 starts because it can get pretty loud at times and there is some drama as well. but you will get that where ever you go.

    Academic Rigor

    the professors are very hands on and truly have your best interest at hand. they are very understanding and help you out as much as you can. warner has a very good reputation when it comes to the students who have graduated and how they are prepare for the work force. they eduction program is very difficult but it is also one of the top programs. most of the seniors get jobs before they even finish their internship. the 2 years i have been here every teacher ed. student has graduated and had a job right a way working as a full time teacher and those who got subbing jobs chose that type of job.

    Campus Safety

    The campus safety is not exactly state of the art.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life is great on this campus. They are places where you can feel accepted without being judged and the participants are always willing to help.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs (also known as Greek life) on campus are epic. However, there is nothing to do in Lake Wales and the activities that the school provides are mostly for sports oriented people.

    Great for these types of students

    Education is the best major you could be in for this school but business is a close second.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Battle for the Paddle is the most anticipated tradition on campus. Warner and Webber International University students compete against each other in athletic tournaments to win the paddle for their school to display for an entire year.

    Bang for the buck

    The bang for your buck factor really depends upon your major. Education and Business majors can do fairly well here. But many of the other majors need more opportunities.

    What to do for fun

    Warner is not in a region that has many things to do and while student life tries cremate activities, it is only enough if you like sports.

    Food and Dining

    The food is literally unidentifiable. While they may have bought it fresh, it doesn't seem that way when they put it out on the serving trays.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty good. Williams Hall is really roomy, however, the carpets and ac units needed to be changed a long time ago. The biggest thing with utilities though are the washers and dryers that are out of order or are so old that they hardly do anything. The RA's in William's, while great people, allow the girls in the hall to much leeway. There where boys in the hall way past open dorm hours and violent arguments would break out in the lobby.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging without being difficult. Most of the teachers are nice and want to see you do well in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be careful with your financial aid and classes. The lack of communication that the school has amongst its offices causes some students to loose money and take the wrong classes. They don't mean for this to happen, but it does.

    In three sentences

    Warner University is the best place if you are sports person. While Warner constantly builds up its sports teams with the best, it leaves its academics behind with broken promises of new buildings and better class rooms. The only major that has not suffered is the education major because it is set in stone while the others keep changing which causes students much pain in their wallets.

    Campus Safety

    24 hour security that drive around the campus, offer rides to those who do not have a car and need to travel.

    Great for these types of students

    If you are an athlete, you will not be bored because you will constantly training and practicing.

    What to do for fun

    Although the campus is in the middle of no where, there are intramurals sports that happen on campus. There is a mall about 15 minutes away. Lego land is about 20 minutes away. Orlando is about an hour and thirty minutes away and the nearest beach is 2 hours either towards Tampa or Orlando.

    Food and Dining

    Enough to cater for the entire school. The professors dine with the student, therefore allowing for a closer community and eliminating the space between student and professor.

    Dorm Life

    Unisex dorms offer the opportunity for one to start a friendship before a relationship. Very spacious dorms and wonderful RA's.

    Academic Rigor

    Free tutoring, challenging classes but there is always a professor willing to answer your questions, even when you raise your hand in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't expect an extremely glamorous campus with huge buildings and fancy things, this school focuses on more than the material things. They concentrate on your academics and your spirituality, without being aggressive or reprimanding. The people are very loving and supportive.

    In three sentences

    Closely knit community that care about their students, faculty and staff. Wonderful opportunities to pursue religious degrees and be close to God. Small, but more than efficient.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic rigor at Warner is very focused and geared towards the proper implementation and balance between real world and textbook studies. The courses just seem to have balance and challenge for students.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking for a University that cares about education and not the numbers then Warner University is the place for you. This university is more then a school it is a school of learning and leader creation.

    In three sentences

    Warner University is a students university, the professors are willing to help students in learning and understanding. The staff is very helpful and help students to remain focused on their education. If you are looking for a university that cares then go to Warner University.

    Tips for prospective students

    Since Warner University is built on a Christian foundation, It is a Christian University. Prospective students should expect to gain a better relationship with God.

    In three sentences

    At first glance Warner University may seem like a typical private University--small, strict, and boring. There's more to Warner that meets the eye. Warner University if fun, the students and professors are really friendly, and it's very also open to the Christian community.

    What to do for fun

    Just talk and socialize around. They are some nice people from what I have met so far! If not, you can come to the Library and read. They have a nice range of books to chose from...Though just to warn you...Movie selections are not as good as others.

    Food and Dining

    Just one word...NOMS!! Food is awesome, bar none.

    Dorm Life

    Excellent. The freshman dorms, aka, the Williams dorms, are awesome. They are larger (or so i'm told) then the other types of dorms on the campus. The only bad thing about that is the walk to the classes, But a bike or car can cure that problem!

    Academic Rigor

    Not that hard, but It is a challenge. For a new freshman like me, it is something new for me to experience...but it's a good one to have.

    Tips for prospective students

    Understand your schedule and get to class on time. Talk to the Student life, Financial aid, and your teachers for aid, they are there to help you. If you want a christian based school, come here!

    In three sentences

    It is an excellent school. They have pleasant teachers, kind students, and wonderful food. I don't want to leave in two years, but I know I will have to.

    What to do for fun

    Not much to do on the campus itself, but the school is located in a spot where in nearly every direction, from 15 minutes to an hour and half drive I should say is a tourists town. Towns and cities such as Miami and Orlando. So I doubt that you will not be able to find entertainment on top of that less than ten minutes down the way is Webber international university.

    Food and Dining

    Now the food at times can look disturbing, but it is school so nothing is going to compare to what you are used to eating. However that disturbing morsel may very well surprise you, it just appears to be funny tasting at times. If still it does not appeal to you, you can make yourself a pizza or waffle or order delivery.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are nice. They may be somewhat on the smaller side but they are spacious enough. They give you some privacy as well so when you want to be alone there is a wall in between roommates.

    Academic Rigor

    Just staying focus, at times things become boring true; honestly there is not much around, unless you have a car, to relieve the stress of school. But that is when friends come in handy. Make sure to keep track of assignments, write them down or write a reminder to go online and check the class agenda. Well keep your syllabuses with you at all times. There are lots of extra credit opertunities so make sure you pay attention. The big thing though is just to study, studying in about thirty minutes to an hour's worth intervals a day, is all you need do not stress yourself out trying to cram it all in one sitting.

    Tips for prospective students

    If considering to attend to Warner university it is best to build relationships, although this is a small school it can be pretty overwhelming. Get to know the your professors and advisors, and stay in the financial aid office, for it shows a caring student personality and they will do a lot to help in return. Relax, make friends, and enjoy the experience the work is fairly easy so do not threat. Just make sureto learn how to type, it is a pain typing up essays and such.

    In three sentences

    Warner is an excellent school, with an excellent environment and atmosphere. The classes ,themselvesfor alone, make focusing on school easy, for they are small and very hands on; as are the the professors. Warner is not only home to the academic achiever, but is Aldo home to a vast amour of athletes, all striving to be successful.
