Most Helpful Review for Widener University
  • Category: Tips for prospective students
  • Review by: Mike from Holmes, PA

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.

    I enjoy Widener University a lot. I believe that the small class sizes help me tremendously throughout my academics. If I had to rate Widener, I would give it 1 7 out of 10 because there could definitely be some improvements.

    Enjoyed my tour of the college and not real sure what I'm going to do but it didn't seem overwhelming, or too small where you'd be smothered. Price of tuition is about the same depending on class and program.

    I rate my experience at Widener a 7 out of 10. This University academically meets my expectations. However, I feel the schools administration needs to make better efforts to help integrate minority students into the entire student body.

    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.
