William Jewell College Reviews
William Jewell College is my home. It is a community of students who want to critically think together to achieve scholarship and higher learning. I am a varsity athlete, involved in Greek life, the Pryor Leadership Program and other organizations on campus. This place has changed me for the better and taught me that college is more than parties and fraternities, but actually getting to know individuals around you to grow with. I already have internships lined up thanks to my excellent accounting professors. Love this place, please give it a shot after your first year.
I enjoy the small community of William Jewell; it allows me to get to know all the students around me, and I’m able to have connections with the professors. The class sizes are small (biggest class I’ve had was about 25 students), and the core curriculum teaches you to think. I would like to see William Jewell improve housing, as some of the buildings are old and have problems. This wouldn’t be too much of an issue, except for students being required to live on campus all four years. I would be in favor of requiring first year students living on campus, but allowing other students to choose their residence.
William Jewell College is a fantastic school. The academics are very challenging, even for a former high school valedictorian like me, but they are very rewarding. Jewell doesn't just offer a degree, it offers an education. The student life is also very involved in campus activities and organizations, so many opportunities are present to make friends and get to know more people on campus. The campus is small, but it feels bigger with the amount of people you are able to meet when you become involved. Overall, I am having a fantastic college experience here, and I am glad I chose to come to William Jewell College.
