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
Review Edward Waters College
I would say i have a lot of experience in everything like dance, art, basketball, football, swimming and also love working in groups i feel that i would more understand things when i would need help i would have my teammates to help me when needed. Although i Feel that Edwards water is the college i would love to be apart of cause i feel that i would learn much more that i don't know and also meeting new people and roommates.
Although Edward Waters was not my first pick, I have came to actually enjoy and like my HBCU. Its small, so the professors can actually focus on the students, your not just a number to them. All the staff wants is for you to succeed, its like a family. Even though the students do not particpate in everything they still try to make our college exprenice a great one.
