    Great for these types of students

    Anyone who plans on taking any of the majors offered

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to ask questions. They will be answered. Also, make sure you can access the wireless internet before the first day of school (or so I've been told).

    Bang for the buck

    As compared to other schools, the cost is very good. I was planning on attending an online college for a while, but I found out that WDT cost less than even UoPhoenix Online.

    Will enjoy being here

    The school has approx. 1200 students. The people I've interacted with so far have been incredibly helpful and polite.

    Will learn a lot

    There are very few Gen. Eds so you will begin learning about your specific major in the first semester.

    Campus Safety

    There are windows all around the building, there is almost no blind spots. People are always around.

    Greek Life

    No Greek life going on here..

    Clubs and Activities

    WDT has over 100 clubs and they range from Hot Rod to Book Exchange.

    Great for these types of students

    If you're a hands on student and don't want to sit through classes that don't pertain to your career goal, this is the place to attend.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    You will have to walk down stairs or take the elevator from the top level to the floor level three or more times a day. The design of the new addition wasn't thought out to good, the whole top level isn't connected. Other than that, it's a great college.

    Bang for the buck

    Learn how to study your way, for me it's studying all alone and there is nothing wrong with that. Having finished with five As and one B in my first semester proves it worked for me....

    What to do for fun

    Join as much clubs as you can, talk to the instructors and get to know them personally, they'll make you comfortable and understand your personal situation.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good in the cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    WDT doesn't have dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The instructors at WDT challenge you in everything you are majoring. They do not teach what doesn't pertain to your career.

    Tips for prospective students

    If this is your first time attending college after a long break from High School, look into scholarships like P.E.O which is for young women attending college. Sit at the front of the every class, it is effective, and study the way you are most comfortable. I study all alone and there is nothing wrong with this at all.

    In three sentences

    Goals are achieved at WDT. The future looks bright and change is happening every year.

    Campus Safety

    This campus is the safest I have felt in a long time. I have no problem bringing my children here if I need to.

    Greek Life

    This life doesn't happen at our school, not sure why.

    Clubs and Activities

    The school does try and get the students involved as much as possible and there are a lot of things that they do for a lot of different people.

    Great for these types of students

    This campus is great for all types of students, and I think that is what I like about it . The diversity is amazing and there is so much to learn from other people.It sure does make study groups entertaining.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I'm not sure if there is any unusual ones, it's my first year, but I haven't heard of any.

    Bang for the buck

    I transferred from an online college to this campus and I would say it was well worth it. I feel I get more out of the physical interaction.

    What to do for fun

    In my free time I am part of a non profit group. We try to break the negative stereotypes associated with modified and tattooed women by supporting a different charity every month. We are called the Dakotas Modified Dolls.

    Food and Dining

    I love staying there for lunch and breakfast is amazing! Biscuits and gravy all the way!

    Dorm Life

    Unfortunantly we do not have dorms at my college, but I hear they are working on that. That I feel would be in their best interest in expanding and more students would stay.

    Academic Rigor

    I couldn't be more statisfied with my choice.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take advantage of the tutors, the teachers, and other students. Everyone is there for one purpose and that is success.

    In three sentences

    It is an amazing school. It makes you feel at home, like a family. I have had the best teachers, and learned so much.
