Gardner-Webb University Reviews
GW provides various aspects that make it appealing to everyone who learns about it. Their graduation rate is 98%, so there is excellent academic programs. I'm personally in the nursing program, both in the BSN and ADN. No other school would let me do both. I'm doing both to allow me to get a year of work experience before graduate school. GW encourages their students to further their education to graduate school. Additionally, GW has huge diversity within the campus. We have many students who live across the world just to come here, a lot of them for sports. Another benefit about going to GW is the security/safety. We have an actual police department on campus that consists of about eight to nine officers on call. Overall GW is one of the best colleges to go to whether you are looking to play sports, all about academics, a safe place away from home, or looking for a new environment!
Gardner-Webb University is one of the best schools nationwide by far! The people are incredible, the classes are exciting with professors who take time to know everyone's name and favorite music genre (literally). Some of the facilities could use some more funding, but overall an outstanding university.
I have truly found my home here at Gardner-Webb University. I am a student in the Degree Completion Program, so all of my classes are online. This program has allowed me to continue to work full time to support myself and help my family, while also saving for the future. Even though this program is online, I feel that my professors have been extremely thorough in their teachings. After transferring from another university to Gardner-Webb, I feel that this is where I am meant to be learning. I am even looking into MBA programs for after I graduate! I am so proud to be apart of the Running Bulldog community!
