What Students Are Saying

3.68 Average Rating
A close-knit community where people get to know each other in common fields of study. The professors know your name and call you by it when they see you in the hallway. Beautiful campus full of activities and things of interest.
Danielle from Macon, MS
The W is known for it's small size, historic campus, caring teachers, and great academic programs. I chose to go there because of its small classrooms, many awards, and the multiple wonderful teachers I met before I made my decision. On the W's campus you never meet a stranger, and you will learn more than just information from books: you will learn about who you are.
