  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
The College of Wooster is a rigorous institution that prepares students for graduate-level schoolwork. While the classes can be difficult, classes are small and teachers are typically more than willing to answer questions and help you find a way to make the class suit your needs. If you have aspirations and a willingness to think outside the box, this school is probably a good choice.
Sarah from OH
Wooster has incredible professors that are always available and willing to help students. The students are smart and hard working individuals that know where and what they would like to be doing in life. The campus is social enough to be fun however education is always first with the students.
