    Wittenberg University has helped me to break out of my "shell" and truly find who I am. My advisor and professors on campus are very supportive of helping me to figure out what I want to do and the steps to get there. The campus is so welcoming and has pushed me to do things I thought I would never do, like join a sorority! I have a campus job, a great social life and interesting classes. I believe Wittenberg is doing a great job of preparing me for my future.

    Wittenberg is a miraculous place. The environment is very welcoming, and the people are great. It may be a small school, but that is part of the beauty of it. You can meet someone and see them around campus, whereas if it were a larger school you may see someone and then not see them for a long while. I enjoy the fun activities, sporting events, and all the dogs on campus! The 4paws program is a wonderful thing that Wittenberg does. The only thing that I would change about Wittenberg is to have a better selection of food in the Dining hall.
    I really love this University! I wouldn’t go anywhere else. This is a very fun campus that also is very educationally involved. A lot of students drop their first year, due to academics. But if you stay, you are given so many opportunities here. The job placement rate is extremely high! The athletics here don’t disappoint us either. I would recommend this campus to people who like to work hard but love to have fun.
