All of my classes have been online with Wilmington University. Canvas is your one-stop shop for knowledge related to all classes within the semester. Class syllabus, assignments due, discussion boards, group chats, announcements from professors, professor contact information, etc. are all available under each class tab. Professors quickly respond to questions via email and make connections with students in order to help them succeed. My professors checked in with me often during COVID-19, which showed how much they cared. Although this was my first year taking online courses, I could not have asked for a better experience!

Wilmington University is a great experience! I have just now finished my first year here and I loved every minute of it. I was on the cheerleading team and atmosphere was so fun. All of the professors at Wilmington University are so genuine and will help you succeed in your classes. If you go to them after class or email them they are always there to help you out! I am returning here for the fall semester and cheering again and also continuing my education. I got good grades both semester and my GPA is a 3.93. Even after all classes got moved to online, and some were harder than others I still tried really hard. First semester I made Dean's List with the help of my professors! They all truly care about your studies and pushing you to only become better! I love this school and I am happy that I get to go here next year.
My experience as a Wilmington University student so far has been super great! My professors have been very understanding and helpful, I have had no problem with anything from getting on campus safely to being provided help and assistance when needed. I highly recommend Wilmington University to anyone looking for a great school!
