What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
Visit. It's that simple. The thing that I like most about this campus day-to-day is the environment and the general feeling of community. Spend some time on campus, talk to students and see if you fit in. It can be tough for some to travel to Wooster, but I suspect a number of you will find it well worth the trip.
Scott from Wooster, OH
Come visit the campus! It really is beautiful and there's no better way to know if you'll fit in then by visiting for yourself. And don't be afraid to ask questions to anyone on campus, either. One of our greatest attributes is our friendliness and students, faculty and staff are always more than willing to tell you about their experiences.
If you come on a visit don't be afraid to walk around by yourself and get a real feel of the campus and the people. The tour guide will do a good job of showing that, but going out on your own will truly show the College.
Bob from Winter Park, FL
Make sure you talk to financial aid office if you need the help. If you do chose Wooster, or any other school for that matter, make sure you get involved in a variety of activities. Push yourself outside your comfort zone and experience new things.
Matthew from Delaware, OH
*Be prepared for rigorous work.
*Don't be afraid to ask questions! Whether it be your professors, advisers, or even fellow students.
*It's a small school where you'll encounter the same people often. Smile and make conversation--you'd be surprised how far that will get you.
*98% of the student body lives on campus, so the chances of a snow day will be slim to none. Filling the Kauke Arch with snow doesn't change that, no matter what they'll tell you when you visit
*Unless you plan on eating in the dining hall 3 times a day, Plan A on the meal plan will be your friend. It allows for roughly two meals in the dining hall per day, and also has the most flex dollars (a currency that can be used in the dining halls, as well as the coffee shop, convenience store, a small restaurant in downstairs Lowry, etc). Most people don't even use all the swipes in this plan, and if you do then you can always use the flex towards meals.
Sarah from OH
Make sure to visit and see if it is for you, its a small school.
Jeff from Parker, CO
Before you decide on Wooster: Take a student-led tour. Ask questions and talk to Financial Aid. Take a tour on your own and enjoy the beauty of the campus. Get a sense of if you would feel at home at Wooster for four years. Once you decide on Wooster: Get involved. Join clubs you know you'll love and try a new one each semester if possible. Talk to your professors outside class; build a rapport with them so when choosing your Senior Independent Study advisor comes around, you’ll know your first choice and they’ll know you. Utilize the reusable mug program when you buy your daily coffee. Listen to the school radio, Woo 91, especially when they start interviewing current seniors about their I.S. successes and mishaps. Go to the writing center if you need help with that final edit, or to the math center if, like me, you have avoided it since high school. Take archery or scuba diving or bowling or table tennis or yoga for an interesting athletic experience. If you’re applying for a campus job, e-mail the connections provided in the Student Employment Office directly instead of waiting for an interview call. Go to the Underground (the campus club) to dance or to Common Grounds (a chem-free program house) to enjoy cheap milkshakes and free video games. Have fun!
Leigh from NE Ohio
Get to know people and don't be afraid to get involved on campus. The earlier you do so, the easier the transition to college will be.
Wooster14 from Canton, OH
If you come to The College of Wooster and immediately feel as if you were at home, it is meant to be! This college is not for everyone, especially because it has such a small student body. Once you move in and meet your roommate and hall mates, you will feel at home, and the years will fly by, before you know it, you will be graduating.
