With a quick transition to online classes due to the pandemic, Waynesburg adjusted very quickly. They were able to provide faculty with enough time to adjust, and the services used worked efficiently. My online experience with Waynesburg was amazing!

Due to the virus, I had to finish my sophomore year of college online. Surprisingly, it was not as bad as I thought it would be! I finished the semester strong and only had a few issues here and there. Something I did struggle with was how one teacher taught our class. She had the class through our Canvas chat. No video, no call. It was really hard, but I made it through. Other than that, I enjoyed having the online classes!
This university did offer small class sizes, kind professors, and early field placements. However, the courses were not challenging, the dining options were horrific, and the dorms were outdated.
