      • P
        2013 -2015, Master’s Degree

        WIDENER is a DIAMOND in the Rough!

        I loved being at Widener. I loved to hear what undergrads were doing and to hear all the excitement that was happening on campus. I loved to hear about the football games, student president for a day and best of all the ice cream social all over campus. The teaching was by professors not TAs and they were very interested and concerned about their students. I am a college admissions consultant and I have made others aware of Widener.... now I am going to broaden the base and recommend it to my students. I LOVED my experience at this school! This school prepared me so well, that what others see as a challenge right now, is something I can do on the back of my hand and ready to embrace! I studied undergrad at USC and another grad program at UCLA. I would put Widener next to these two school any day!

      • V
        1984 -1996, Bachelor's degree

        Widener gave me the skills and knowledge to be Successful!

        Widener looked at my past experience, past education and provided me with the best curriculum. It took me 9 years to complete my AS degree and 12 years to complete my BS degree in Business Administration as part time student who was working full time and raising 4 children. My eldest son also graduated from Widener with a Mechanical Engineering degree the year after I graduated. The professors were the KEY -- they brought real life experience to every course - they worked in their field and shared that knowledge with the students. The personal attention was the second major point. I always recommend Widener to anyone who is undecided on which school to attend.

        Widener provided me with the education with their highly competent professors, and the job skills through their Coop program, to prepare me to be successful in the business world.
