The W is a school that I would recommend to anyone! In fact, three of my family members currently attend the W. The W's small classroom sizes and beautiful campus is what drew me to this school. I felt at home when I stepped onto campus. The professors are phenomenal and they always respond to emails in a timely manner. I am grateful that I was fortunate enough to attend this school!

The environment is supportive and people are friendly. The university contains great professor and even the administrative department are very helpful. The University gives its best to support its student in every way possible. It provides transportation to the nearby international airport which is helpful for both the domestic and international student. In addition, the university provides temporary accommodation for an international student, which allows the international student to understand the difference between living on campus or off campus.
I love my university! I’ve been here since I graduated high school and I am not in nursing school here. It is an awesome campus. Everyone is so friendly and kind. I would like to see more variety of restaurants on campus. It would be awesome if we could get a Chick-Fil-a on campus and maybe like an good burger place like Steak and Shake on campus.
