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.

I honestly love it here. It is close enough to Philadelphia to go to do stuff there but far enough away for it to not be too city-like. The staff are very helpful and are always working to improve.
