W&J is a small liberal arts college outside of Pittsburgh, PA. And I mean small with less than 2,00 students! This allows for an amazing student to teacher ratio with great academic support. I know all of my professors, and the small classes mean that everyone gets attention. Although the academics are challenging, every major is good at W&J since the college doesn't just throw facts down your throat, you learn how to learn. I can now say going into my senior year that W&J has really shaped me as an individual. The Student Life is very big, with many clubs to join and a thriving Greek organization including almost half of campus! I can't forget about sports either, we are a competitive D3 school and many students are able to play their sport as well as thrive academically. W&J really does have every opportunity available, and is a close knit community that supports everyone. If you want to really get to know the school and see if it is right for you, come for a visit!

The people in this campus, educators and students, are exceptional! My experience at Washington and Jefferson College have been nothing but pleasant and enjoyable. I definitely made the right choice picking Washington and Jefferson College. I feel right at home, as I should at College. The people you meet soon turn to people you consider family. If I had to pick my college again, it would be W&J without a doubt.
Socially W&J is pretty much as good as it can get. Starting from day 1 it is so easy to be friends with so many people. At least for me, the parties were great, especially on greek row. No matter what there's almost always a party at a fraternity house on the weekends if not at a couple. If anything I had fun in college. The campus really has this great unity and most people are really friendly. The staff is so nice and I always thought most teachers genuinely cared about what they were teaching. Even though the dorms were reallyyyy small, it was the best. Everyone on the floor gets really close and the weekend turnups are great. You could just walk down greek row on a saturday night and see basically fifty different people that you were friends with. I miss it!!
