Wingate University Reviews
There's so many volunteer opportunities on campus that will help keep someone involved in the community. It gives you an opportunity to network and meet the different kinds of people you find on this campus. The library's service is always on point! They've always been so helpful and it's never been too crowded for me to get a spot at the computer lab or have a place to study. My professors were amazing in every way and I never once left the classroom with unanswered questions. Communication is reliable with professors as long as you attend classes as regularly as possible. At Wingate, you'll get a nice exercise because walking is mostly how students get around.
I am currently a sophomore at Wingate University, but I love attending this school. When I moved in, I only had one friend and felt like I didn't belong there. But then as the first week went by, I made a lot of friends that lived in my dorm and I felt like I was at home. Wingate is most definitely my home away from home, and I cannot wait to go back in August!
Wingate University has an incredibly beautiful campus. It is small, but this is what makes it more like home. There is a strong sense of community and diversity because a large part of the students are international. I am from Spain and in these last four years I feel I have developed a second family here in America. Students build close relationships between themselves and with their professors, who are willing to help as much as possible. There is always something to do at Wingate, if you want to be involved, you for sure will have a huge variety of clubs and activities to choose from. My team signed up this year to the intramurals volleyball tournament and we had so much fun and met new people. On the other side, one thing I would change is the parking lots. Half of them are gravel and there is not enough room for students, commuters and faculty/staff. Overall, there are always pros and cons to anywhere you go, but I wouldn’t change my decision to study at Wingate.
