Wilberforce University has made me more hungry, and competitive than ever before! I am from Detroit, MI, as If that Isn't already enough. This University has molded me into a bright light that will shine, through any and every dark day the world has to offer. I highly recommend Wilberforce for It's academic teachings, historical teachings, beliefs, values, and family oriented campus.

I love The fact that it’s the first private HBCU in America, but it’s very poorly funded. The Alumni should invest more in their HBCU and strive for it to get greater and better each year instead each year everyone graduates they just leave little ol WU behind. But nevertheless Wilberforce IS in a renaissance and will be GREAT again!
I am a first-year college student and my overall experience at Wilberforce University is amazing. I enjoy the school very much. The professors are really hands-on with the students and really take the time to work with each student. I enjoy the fact that campus is really small and the classes being small because I get to have a closer relationship with my professors. Since I have been there I have gotten the opportunity to have better relationships with the majority of my professors. Academic wise I understand the criteria really well. Athletics overall is great. I am living comfortably in the housing, I am always safe, Campus food is alright it could be better but no complaints and student life is great. I enjoy seeing different people from different areas and getting to know them.
