    Since I live in a completely different state, it was culture shock coming to a small school in Pennsylvania. However, as I grew to learn the school and people there, I fit right in. There are great clubs, athletic teams and weekend activities planned for every type of person. Although the weekends can get a little bit crazy (like most college campuses) there are alternatives. The school keeps me busy, too, so that I don't have much time to get homesick. Once you meet the right group of friends, which you will, it is a great school to attend and have fun at.

    I enjoy the environment here. W and J tries to offer activities for kids who do not want to drink or things like that. The people there are very friendly as well.

    I finished my freshman year last year and loved it. The upperclassmen are so welcoming toward the Freshmen, and the faculty/administrators are amazing. I felt at home when coming to W&J, and felt like I did not need to go home too often. It is NOT a suitcase campus. Most students who go here, stay here. I love the environment and the people. The surround is intimate and you are able to build close relationships. The President of the school knows your name, and she can be found in the cafeteria eating with other students. You see Deans and administrators around campus, and chatting with students. They are at different events and participate in many student activities. I am involved many activities on campus, and hold an active role in each organization. W&J opens the door to so many opportunties to get involved and make a difference. Students' opinions matter so much on this campus, which is evident in the surveys that they send out.
