Wiley College Reviews
I like Wiley College because it is a historically black college/university (HBCU) college. I like Wiley College have a mission that committees to the principle of educational access, the College serves traditional and non-traditional students from diverse backgrounds who have expressed a desire and potential for learning in a Christian environment. Also it a lot of history into old Wiley dear. For example, Wiley College opened its doors just south of Marshall with two frame buildings and an overwhelming desire to succeed in a climate fraught with racism and Jim Crow laws. Wiley College became the first Black college west of the Mississippi River. I like it because it a small population and school because I love one on one learning. I think Wiley need to work on many things like professionalism, housing conditions, cafeteria food, scholarships, and informing students more about things on campus.
I like Wiley College because it has few students on the campus. It feels like a big family because almost everyone know each other, except if you are a freshman. I also like the fact that, because there is a few students, it is easier for the students to interact and get help from their professors. That it what I really like about Wiley College. I would like to see the administration be more involved with the student body and fulfil the promises they have made to us.
The college is very small and close-knit so you get a family vibe here. The classes are never too large, you won't have a class over fifty people and the professors do a great job teaching the material. Wiley College is the place where every student can succeed so it's impossible to fail!
