William Penn University Reviews
William Penn supports students through out their academic time at Penn. They also strongly support athletics and other extra curricular activities. My favorite part of William Penn University is the relationships built while on campus. Due to its small size, you have the ability to know most of the other students that attend the university as well. The small class sizes allow for you to get to know your professor and your professor to get to know you! These relationships are very helpful for classes, internships, and future job opportunities.
From first year being over I can say I had a decent year. I met a lot of great people from around the world meaning there is a lot of diversity. There was some very great and easy to get along with professors. Many professors are kind when it comes to missing assignments, tests, due to sickness or to athletics. Classes are small as well as campus. Everyone tends to know everyone or at least see one another often due to it being a private school. One thing I disliked was there was nothing to really do outside of school. William Penn is in a small town with not many options do go out and do things.
It's a small school, so I like the teacher/student ratio. I'm not just a number. I could go to my professors for help during their office hours, without having to make an appointment necessarily. They knew my name and wanted me to succeed. The current Dean of Students (Dr. Stahle) is NOT good for the institution as a whole. I'm very disappointed that the school has not done anything about this yet.
