    Widener makes sure that you experience college life at its fullest. During my first semester, they wanted all of the new freshman to join at least one club or sport to really experience Widener and make new friends. Even though the tuition is higher than public school, Widener offers many opportunities to their students and really get you involved to pack your resume full of different activities, community services, etc.
