    This school is very beautiful and the campus is easy to get around. The professors are super sweet and the classrooms are decent size so they get to know you pretty well over the course of a semester or year. They always are available and have posted office hours. The students are all very nice and 40% of the campus is greek life. The housing system has an honors floor and a substance free floor along with a gender inclusive floor so everyone feels comfortable. The diversity could be better and their could definitely be more representation for other races on campus. The language and culture departments host lots of events to celebrate other cultures, but it’s rare anyone attends unless they’re specifically interested in that study area. Overall, it’s a fun campus and i would recommend.

    Let me say this about Wittenberg. The academics here are incredible. I have learned so much and have grown so much as a student. There are so many opportunities to study abroad, research, and get to know your professors on an interpersonal level. The committed professors and generous scholarships are why I'm sticking with Witt.
    I have always felt welcomed by everyone at Witt and it is easy to make friends. There are plenty of clubs and organizations to join. Greek life is much better here than at big schools. Tiers really aren't a thing and there are large frats (Phi Psi, Delt, Beta) and small frats (Delt Sig and Lambda Chi) to choose from. All of the sororities are huge. Students are generally friendly but since it's a small school, gossip spreads fast.
    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.
