    Walsh is a great community and environment. The professors work personally with you to make sure you're understanding the material and actually learning, in turn making you more successful in the real world. The dorms have all been updated and are in pretty great condition. The freshman dorms don't have AC units yet, but it was never too bad. It's only really hot hot during August, then it cools into fall weather, and the campus is beautiful this time of year. The food could be better, but is manageable for college food. There are multiple gyms around campus which is really impressive for such a small school. I'm about halfway through my college experience at Walsh and I've been thoroughly pleased with the experience I've had here. If you like small class sizes, genuine professors who will know you by name and not just an ID number, this is the place for you.

    I attended multiple other college tours, but none of them had the "wow factor" that Walsh had. The people there are professional and welcoming as soon as you step foot on campus. The learning environment is one of encouraged excellence and positivity. Compared to all of the other colleges that I have had experiences with, Walsh University is a cut above the rest. The school pioneers personalized curriculums and promotes international experiences that it's competitors cannot even hope to offer.
    Walsh has became a second home. Surrounded by my best friends receiving an exceptional education. Everyone was always helpful and welcoming and the staff was always there to help!
