I love it here! They have amazing financial aid and one of my favorite parts of coming in was Summer Fling, a yearly tradition where the incoming freshman come to campus, tour around KC, and get to spend time with their future classmates ON CAMPUS

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 love love love it here! The academics, the campus, the spirit, all of it. I made so many friends even before school starts for me as a freshman.
