Generally I have a rather negative outlook on "For Profit" Universities, so when i decided to attend Walden University, I was skeptical to say the least. I was pleasantly surprised to find that despite many of the classes and undertones having a "Liberal" leaning, opinions and diversity of all schools of thought were not only accepted, but encouraged. The schools primary message of making positive social change rings true with everything.

They offer tremendous resources for all students including tutoring, writing help, tuition reductions in some cases and an extensive library. Even the schools bookstore is fairly priced.

The student body is diverse with students not only from all over the US but the world. The school does things quickly, offering 6 week classes as the norm, all of which are loaded with info, so it's not easy, but can finish quickly. The staff will also do anything in their power to help you succeed.
Review Walden University
The professors are really trying to ensure that your experience is the best at Walden! When I started at Walden, I was excited to complete the program. Then, tragedy struck. It took me a couple of years before I returned. Once I was readmitted to my program of study, each professor I encountered went above and beyond to reconnect me with resources that would enable me to better understand what I was studying. Their feedback was priceless!
Since initially attending Walden, I've met so many great professionals and colleagues via online as well as face-to-face during residency. I've encountered a few financial obstacles but with Walden's financial aid department, I've been able to get over these hurdles. Additionally, I enjoy the emails and newsletters for social change and community involvement. Thus, Walden is dedicated to social change and since attending, so am I! I am WALDEN UNIVERSITY!
