What Students Are Saying

3.85 Average Rating
Come and get the best education in Pa.
Maya from Philadelphia, PA
If you do decide to come to Widener, join a club or two. Stay active on campus in extracurricular activities. Also get a planner, you will need to have good time management or you will be a mess.
Nicky from Collingdale, PA
I would recommend prospective students to get involved with a club and/or athletic team as soon as possible. They help you make friends faster and you get more involved with the school. Definitely get acquainted with time management and good work and study skills, you will need them. Make sure to take care of your work but don’t forget to have fun too. If you do fall behind and are having trouble, take advantage of the tutoring, office hours, and student programs. Be prepared to get bored of the cafeteria-buy some back up snacks or save money to order out/eat out. If your from really far away, don’t forget to experience Philly and get ready for cold weather. Also, don’t expect most students to be from a far off state like me. Most students will be from Pennsylvania and Jersey.
