I really enjoyed my four years at the College of Wooster. Specifically, the professors have truly made a difference in my experience. Nowhere else can you build as strong of a bond with your professors at Wooster. They are not only friendly and helpful, but they put you first in every way possible. With roughly 130 student organizations to become a part of, coursework is not the only time commitment at Wooster. Wooster students truly build a community that orchestrates a seamless transition into the college experience. After considering academics, extracurriculars and campus community, Wooster perfectly sets students up for life after ungrad!

Wooster review

Coming to wooster was by far one of the best decisions I made. I’ve been able to get to know professors on a personal level which has lead to job opportunities, research opportunities, countless letters of recommendation, and more. As a sophomore I am a peer tutor, teaching assistant, and on the hiring committee for a new organic chemistry professor. As a sophomore! At Wooster there are also so many opportunities outside of the academics! I and all my peers have been able to find a wide variety of jobs on campus as well as student organizations to be involved in. There are so many things to do at Wooster that are unmatched at other schools, even other small liberal arts.
I've enjoyed my time at the college of Wooster. I have an incredible community of supportive friends, faculty, and staff. Wooster is a unique college because students are dedicated to pushing themselves academically while also supporting those around them to succeed. I can't imagine going anywhere else!
