What Students Are Saying

3.53 Average Rating
GO TO CLASS! Do not slack because you are sleepy and hung out the night before. Going to class is a must and some teachers do take off points if you miss class without a legitimate excuse.
Bahj from Trenton, NJ
Make sure to become a very active in activities and clubs and also make sure to remember that school always comes first before anything else. Very important.
Deziree from Paterson, NJ
First off this school when it comes to those who want to live on campus, try to get into the high mountains, because the overlook buildings are not the best. Also it is a really big commuter school so there is not too much to do on the weekends.
Jordan from Manalapan, NJ
Don't believe everything you're told about WPU. They say it's a party school - we DO party - but most of the time it is stictly academic. Get to know your professors (email them before the semester begins to introduce yourself). Smile, be as fake as you can haha - it' can be the difference between a B+ and a A-.
Asempa from Newark, NJ
try to do your best on the sat's. if your a.commuter, plan on leaving home early to find parking. if you can, it would probably be easier to stay on campus.
Monae from Neptune, NJ
Dorm if financially able! You'll have a blast!
Kierra from Newark, NJ
if you are looking for a great education and college experience, here is the place to start. classrooms are big, with a good student to professor ratio. you really get to know your professor well and other students. tutoring is always available for your struggles in a subject.
Student from Egg Harbor Township, NJ
i would definitely recommend this school because it is awesome. you have the opportunity to speak to people from all over the world. if you encounter any problems, the school has a great counseling center as well as a health and wellness center right on campus.
