I love Wittenberg. I definitely found the school that was right for me. It is small, but has endless things to do and get involved in.

Witt was my first choice because of the great molecular biology and biochemistry programs. Small classes and labs are important to me. Everyone here is friendly and helpful

I LOVE WITTENBERG! Witt is most definitely my home away from home, and coming here has been the best decision of my life. The professors genuinely care about you and your education and are willing to do anything they can to prepare you for the future.
Macy from Mount Gilead, OH
One of the best liberal arts colleges you could attend. Challenging classes that really make you have to think and consider things. It's really easy to connect with your professors and fellow students, everyone is always willing to help with anything you need.
