The academics on campus are great! If you get a high enough ACT score, you can apply for the Oxbridge Honors Program, which, if you qualify for, will allow you the chance to study at Oxford for an entire year. Even if you are unable to participate in Oxbridge, you still get an amazing education with small class sizes, meaning an easier time getting to speak to your professors.
William Jewell requires students to live on campus in the dorms all four years for several reasons. The main one being due to the vigorous nature of the academic programs at WJC. The faculty and staff of Jewell want to ensure that all of the students are successful, and therefore, living on campus puts all of the students near campus where they can easily have access to the resources provided for their academic success. Also, students are recommended to live on campus all four years because it allows them to have the true undergraduate experience, which is extremely rewarding! Only those who petition for health, financial, or other extreme reasons are permitted to live away from the campus. But trust me, living in the dormitories is beneficial, as you meet a lot of great people and it is extremely convenient!
All of the students enrolled at Jewell have access to an on campus nurse, counselor, and advisors to go to should they need anything. The staff and faculty are also very serious about campus crimes, and sexual assault. When I asked about the assault I was relieved to hear that they went to the authorities when something happened, but nothing had been heard about by any juniors since they had started; with a school like Jewell, only 1100 students or so, nothing stays quiet for long.
