What Students Are Saying

3.37 Average Rating
My experience with Winston Salem State University is currently a great experience. I absolutely love the small campus atmosphere. Not to mention my major department along with the professors are great. Not to mention the fact they see me as a student not as a number on the campus and knows me by name.
Briana from Salisbury, NC
I think WSSU is a good university to attend. The students have school spirit and attend the on campus events. The motto at WSSU is enter to learn and depart to serve and here at WSSU if you are serious about your education that is what will happen.
