They laid a foundation for my life’s successes!
Liberal arts education including theology and philosophy’s along with a major in psychology set the stage for mr to move on to greater achievements in my life. They were inspirational and academic. Quality professors who made you think and expand your horizons. Now all that occurred from 1967 to 1971.

1971 graduate. Came from a coal mining family. Received a good education to transition my life to the business world and later went on to obtain a law degree. The liberal arts education and Jesuit reputation have been keys to open my mind and many doors in my life. WJU needs better leadership, a more aggressive board of directors, and a financial foundation to grow into the future. On line classes are must for the future in all levels of education. WJU is far behind in using digital advancements and mobile messaging linking education to the current and ever advancing communication and connection in today's world. However my life was made possible in great part by attending Wheeling College aka as WJU.
Professors at Wheeling Jesuit University truly care about their students and wish the best for all of them. They are willing to go above and beyond to get to know the student and help them out in whatever way that they can. Every professor in my departments are incredibly knowledgable in their subject field and bring passionate vigor to teach every class period. Core classes fill up at 25 students and major classes are much smaller. Because of the small class sizes, it is easy to get to know the professors well and what they are looking for. Many of my professors have invited students over to their houses for beginning and end of the semester socials in addition to allowing students to get to know their families. The professors at Wheeling Jesuit University truly care for their students and are willing to make time for them outside of office hours.
