If you're looking for an institution that reminds you of family, then Widener University is the place to go. It is a small community and many of the facilities are within walking distance. You become familiar with many of the nice, warm and smiling faces within a few months of being on campus.

widener is filled with friendly students and an even friendlier faculty. the sports teams, both athletes and coaches, are dedicated and hard working. the course load is tough yet manageable, depending of course on your major.
