Waynesburg University is a small Christian University that has provided me with some of the best experiences of my life. By attending Waynesburg I am able to have close interactions with my professors, who will consistently work with me until I succeed. I also have made life long friends who I now consider my family. I love my university!
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!
