I like being at Widener because of the people there. Most students are friendly and are easy to get along with. I am a student athlete and have enjoyed being part of my school and my team. it’s a little tricky to juggle extracurricular activities, work, studying, and fun- but if I can do it, most people should be able to too. The campus is pretty at times- and were getting renovations done throughout this summer. I have to admit I am excited to see it! There are couple of things I do not enjoy about Widener though. There is a lack of food options if you live on campus and the cafeteria can get really boring and dissatisfying. There is also a lack of study places and meeting places- most students resort to the library. I also wish there was more ethnic diversity at this school. There’s one more thing-a lot of students leave on certain breaks, weekends, and holidays, so if you live far away from campus like me, you can feel like your living in a ghost town.Read More
