What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Worthington is a calm and scenic campus with small class sizes and helpful teachers. On campus dining is limited, but the free food at the numerous school and club hosted events helps make up for it. This is a practical choice for anyone committed to earning a degree without a mountain of student loan debt.
