I absolutely love the College of Wooster! When I visited for the first time, I fell in love with the atmosphere of the College. I felt welcomed right away and never lost this feeling. Additionally, I loved that the students seemed to really care about their campus and that most students are extremely involved on campus. This was all clear to me during my tour and then when I sat in on a class, I was sold. The professor I had was engaging and made the rather large classroom (by Wooster's standards) seem much more intimate. I remember hearing students talking about the class and other classes before and after the lecture, which made me realize how engaged in academics students here are. Fast forward four years and here I am typing this review as a junior at the College. I am so happy that I chose the College of Wooster and that every good thought I had about the College has been proven right ten-fold since coming here.

The College of Wooster is an amazing institution. The community is open and welcoming, and I quickly made friends. There are many extracuricular activities, including clubs, music groups, volunteer organizations, and sprots teams. The professors and faculty are incredible and care about their students. Wooster has APEX and the Center for Diversity and Inclusion, which help students academically and culturally. I feel very supported by my classmates, professors, and advisors.
But Wooster isn't pergect. There have been many problems with the administration not listening to the needs of students. The campus is virtually unaccesible to disabled people. Some of the dorms don't have airconditioning. And there have been incidents of racism, homophobia, and assualt.
I love the emphasis on Independent Study (IS) and the support students get in working towards this major project. From the beginning of your freshman year, you know you are valued as an individual. The small class size helps you really connect with professors and classmates, and my study abroad experience was absolutely amazing!
