Most Helpful Review for Widener University-Main Campus
  • Category: Tips for prospective students
  • Review by: Mike from Holmes, PA
  • 12 out of 12 people found this review helpful

Take advantage of as many Widener days as you can, even schedule a daily tour with the Admissions Office at Mueller Hall. Our average tuition is around $30,000 a year, but the school does offer many scholarships to help out the students. We have a great faculty, (75%+ possess a doctorate in their particular field). And we also have a student to teacher ratio of 12:1 meaning small class sizes. We have a large campus with plenty to do on weekends, along with nationally recognized varsity athletic teams and various club sports and student life organizations.

    Widener University is well known in the tri-state area for being one of the best schools around. The level of education that the students receive is amazing. Many of the local companies specifically look for Widener graduates when hiring new staff.

    I am a civil engineering student at Widener currently, I feel that Widener is the best fit for me. Great professors, available for help all the time, small class sizes, etc.

    They over charge for the same education you can get other places. The graduate school is basically like paying a school to learn on your own. It sucks.

    The school is really small everyone knows everyone. Professors can be great, but most of them are not very good. Campus is located in a dangerous area, Chester is rated number 2 as most dangerous places in the country. People here can be friendly, but there are a lot of clicks.

    Widener is one of the most friendly schools I have been too. The faculty cares about the students and how they learn. They (faculty) want all of their students to be successful and will strive to offer help and other opportunities in order to make their students have the best education.

    Widener University is a nice small school, if that is what you are looking for. Attracting mainly engineering and nursing majors, it is a good home for those interested in those majors. Also, the clubs, sports, and hobbies that they have to offer will keep you busy and involved.

    Widener University is a great school to learn not only academically but learn who you are as a person. Widener offers a variety of volunteer opportunities within the city of Chester and the partnership that has been built is amazing. This is a fantastic school and for anyone that wants one on one attention with professors and a great place to find yourself, Widener University might be the place for you!

    They have been nothing but helpful for. I am apart of their continuing studies program and they have made the transition easy for me. I would highly recommend them due to the fact that they have some very interesting classes that most colleges don't.

    Widener is over priced and too expensive. Widener's surrounding area is dangerous and dilapidated. You will not get your moneys worth at this school.
