UWW is an outstanding school, due to its ability to cater to all types of students, its size, and its dynamic and stimulating student life. The university's size is small enough to allow for comfortable navigation around campus, and it also aids for student-to-professor ratios to be small; giving the student the opportunity to have closer relations and more access to academic assistance. There is also an abundance of activities outside of the classroom, as UWW features hundreds of student organizations, sports, and even Greek life.
