Ever since the day I moved in sometime in August, I have felt like this college is home to me. It is a smaller college, which makes things easier to do such as talk with your professors and such. I have enjoyed my experience with friends as well, really allows you to connect with other people! Being that it is a Christian university also allows you to attend chapel and experience things that most colleges would not offer or do. The dorm/living situation is not bad either! A lot of freshman complain about the dorms, I feel that they are sufficient enough for me and make me feel comfortable in my living situation. The food is not too bad either, it all depends on what you get! I tend to stay away from the chicken, sometimes it is overcooked and hard to eat! There are also a lot of events monthly to get the students involved and I really enjoy that too! Overall, my experience as a freshman at Waynesburg University has been pretty good! I would definitely recommend this school to others!
Review Waynesburg University
The community at Waynesburg is so rich and tight. I have met some of the best friends and mentors I've ever known there. The campus ministry is amazing, the professors truly care about each and every student, and the students can connect through so many different classes, activities, and common interests. There's no Greek life and very little partying, which suits certain people better than others but I definitely view it as a blessing, since I can easily focus on school without peer pressure and distractions. The one thing I would change is the food, but even that isn't too bad. It's certainly edible if not gourmet.
The experience I had at Waynesburg was great. I learned several things about myself, what I want in a career, how certain people can help you get certain things, and what it takes to become successful. I wasn't a very outgoing person while I was there but there are things to do to get involved and have an entertaining time while still getting a solid education. The criminal justice program is one of the top programs around and our biology department is wonderful as well. I wasn't real interested in arts and theater, but that department is very good, too.

Waynesburg got my attention because it's located in a smaller town that is similar to where I grew up. The surroundings made it feel like I was still at home, except my parents and siblings weren't around so I was able to make decisions for myself. The opportunity to make those decisions is what helped make me who I am today.
