Edward Waters College Reviews
I enjoyed EWC mostly due to dancing for the Triple Threat Marching Band (Purple Passion). The school has definitely improved over the years. Although they’ve built a criminal justice building that includes a police substation it is not a huge campus. The school is located in a high crime rate area but there is security on campus. Academically, the classes are not very challenging; at least my major (psychology) seemed that way. Although I enjoyed most of my time at EWC, it isn’t worth the money. Due to the school being private, most of my scholarships wouldn’t cover my tuition.
Edward Waters College is a historically black college located in Jacksonville, FL. I like this college because it offers smaller classroom settings which allow more time for one on one assistance with the professor. I am majoring in Psychology and my professors demonstrate concern in my ability to learn and grow as student and person. EWC also have a police sub-station located on campus for any parents concerned about safety. The staff and administrators are very knowledgeable in their fields
They help a lot, they want to make sure that the students are getting the help that they need and be successful in thiers life careers. Its a great school with great opportunities as long as you keep focus on your goal.
