Originally founded in 1821 as a Quaker boarding school, Widener University is a 4-year private institution in the Philadelphia metro area. Widener confers undergraduate degrees in over 60 academic majors and minors. In addition, many of Widener’s professors have connections to the industry and provide professional mentorship to students. In addition to classroom facilities, the Widener campus is home to an observatory, arboretum, and television studio.
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.
