Am learning a lot
Great environment to learn...small classes and informative and helpful professors.
Am enjoying being here
It's a nice environment, but can get boring at times.
Bang for the buck
Received a lot of scholarships from the school so if you have the grades, you will get the aid.
Tips for prospective students
Tour the campus and spend the night with a student before deciding to attend. WU is very small and that should be considered.
Great for these types of students
laid-back, hard working, looking to meet people.

Am learning a lot
Waynesburg University at first just seemed to be another school. After talking to transfer students it is really worth the money and the time. Everyone goes into college wanting one time, a diploma but at WU you get more than that. This college has so much to offer you no matter what your main interest is. They have every possible club and you could help so many people. They offer so many mission trips and community service events. This school always has activities that are educational, for examples speakers in their area in which they have studied, also activities that are just for fun like Casino night and you could win really cool prizes. The teachers here actually care and a really understanding. I have talk to many people who have transferred here and said they have learned so much more here because of the smaller class sizes and because the teachers and really willing to work with you and help you. If you need help they can help you or even Pam, who takes care of tutoring, she is amazing in setting up tutors. This school is so great and there is so much to do, so much to learn, and everyone is super nice.
Tips for prospective students
Study hard, do not slack off, do your assignments and look to teachers and upperclassman to help you.

at waynesburg they not only want to grow as a student but as an individual as well. they place high priority on grades but also on getting involved in the community locally and nationally through things like community service and mission trips.
Am enjoying being here
yes but it is a challenge. Waynesburg is definately not for everyone. the school is very small and it can definately be boring on the weekends when you first get here but the more activities you get involved in the less time you spend being bored.
Bang for the buck
it is a little expensive but it does offer many different scholarships to incoming students. but the best thing about Waynesburg are the people. they make coming worthwhile. while the education you get here is great the people are what make you stay. they're so warm, understanding and sincere and so eager to help it makes leaving home that much easier.
Tips for prospective students
don't be afraid to talk to people you may not know, and if you smile at others they will smile back at you, but most important join an activity whether it be sports, student senate, student activities board whatever not only will it help you meet other students but it will keep you occupied when class is over and they give you free stuff
Great for these types of students
friendly, outgoing, hard working, easy to get along with

In three sentences
Waynesburg is a wonderful school! I love the people there and the teachers are very willing to help. I love this university!
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you study! I thought it would be as easy as high school, but I have really had to step up my game.
Academic Rigor
The courses are great and definitely geared towards our majors.
Dorm Life
Being on a floor with fifty girls can be a little bit...overwhelming sometimes, but it was a good experience and I made some wonderful friends.
Food and Dining
The food there is great, just watch out for weekends, since everyone leaves they don't serve much.
What to do for fun
Waynesburg is a small town so you kind of have to make your own fun, but Morgantown is close if you wanna spend a night out.
Bang for the buck
Since the classes are so small you get a lot of one on one time with professors. It's really awesome, plus a lot of the courses are more advanced then other schools.
Great for these types of students
If you like small schools where you can really get to know your fellow students and teachers, this is an excellent school.
Clubs and Activities
They offer tons of clubs and on campus activities you can get involved in. They really do a lot for students. Like we have bingo and Monte Carlo night. It's really fun.
Greek Life
There is none.
Campus Safety
Campus is very safe and they have security do rounds all the time.

Yes. The programs at WU are very rigorous, especially the sciences. They require a lot of work, but the teachers and other staff are always willing to help. There are even tutors for every subject so there is no need to not understand the material. The key is to stay on top of assignments and that means before it is due.
Am enjoying being here
I love it here. It's a small town and really not much to do on the weekends, but once you have that main group of friends it goes by so quickly. I enjoy the various activities they have almost everyday, which is where that activity fee comes from. Mainly people are in Pitt or WV, so you'll get to know people out there. Since I'm involved in a lot of clubs you get to know so many people on campus, who may know the surrounding areas and other fun places. The campus has a lot of hills, but that's where exercise comes in.
Bang for the buck
Of course! It's small, private, and affordable. Yes a huge bang. Plus, I was awarded many scholarships from the university. You just have to keep inquiring and stay in the financial aid office. Sometimes you have to ask a lot of questions to get the bucks you need. Also, people in the local community give out scholarships to students. You may think your paying a lot going in, but with the time spent there it's really priceless. I have had so much fun and I just finished my freshman year. You just have to make the money stretch and the memories count.
Tips for prospective students
Come into the university ready to learn and wanting to meet new people. It's great when you can build new relationships that can lead to that future career of yours. Be prepared for sleepless nights, but don't make it a habit. Learn how to manage your time before you get here. It will take some time, but by junior year you should have it down. Try to get involved in things you know you can commit to, but don't overwhelm yourself if you can't handle it. Make sure you get to know the staff because they come in handy. Try not to eat more than what you normally do because the freshman 15 maybe become the freshman 30, but the gym is always open and that's helpful too. Finally take advantge of all the free events because you are paying for it.
Great for these types of students
Students who are faith-based or wanting to strengthen their faith, wants a change from the area they are in, wants a small size campus, enjoys meeting friendly and caring people, wants a diverse campus and an encouraging academic environment.

Am learning a lot
I have had the chance to learn so much and do a lot of hands on experiences. I learned things within my field of study and beyond my field. I feel like you learn way more here than in high school but it is fun learning it because you are learning things that you are actually interested in!
Am enjoying being here
The University is so nice and all the professors make your stay here enjoyable! The campus is beautiful and there is lots to do! The kids on campus are all really nice, even the upperclassmen. You feel at home on this campus.
Tips for prospective students
Always get things in on time there are no late work allowed. Also be nice to everyone because you never know who can help you out in the future and who you may have to work with. Get to know your professors because they can be a big help.
Great for these types of students
Students who like small campuses. Students who like getting to know your professors one on one and vise verse. People who like living close with students around you and students who like hands on experiences.

Will enjoy being here
I have visited waynesburg and love the togetherness I felt when I visited. It's small and you don't feel like student#89690. It makes it easier to make friends.
Bang for the buck
Waynesburg is inexpensive compared to many other schools.
Great for these types of students
People who like smaller classes.
