Wheeling Jesuit University Reviews

I graduated in 1971. I was appointed to the board of directors in 1973. The school was in financial straits but the new board rectified the financial situation, Fr Currie hired top notch development and admissions personnel and the Board raised money especially the McDonough contributions. After Currie left things slowly went downhill until the current board and the recent board members must have made some bad decisions for the recent announcements to occur. Now it will take a miracle to keep the school afloat. Leadership just is not there today! So disappointing!

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.
