Widener University Reviews
Most universities give you a chance to live off campus after a year and pick the meal plan that works best for you after your freshman year. Not Widener, their administration is inflexible & will make you pay for their expensive unlimited meal plan even if you have medical issues that require a special diet. They are more interested in their own profits then the well being of their students.
Making matters worse the school is located around the dangerous city of Chester so you can't really walk off campus to get food since the area is unsafe. I personally felt trapped at Widener's campus since I was forced to exclusively live & eat there. So I am transferring to another College that will allow me some more personal freedoms you would expect to be given as a student.
