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.
Wittenberg University is a great place to learn about yourself as a young adult and for you to grow, evolve and change free of judgement. Professors and staff are quite supportive and always have your best interest at heart. I do however wish the college was more stringent on student advising . Getting a good adviser is really a hit or miss which is unfortunate for those who have terrible academic advisers. It really is a college where you get what you put in. There is alot more academic flexibility which can either be your downfall or pot of gold. Their health majors need more structure and need to deviate a bit more from the liberal style majors.
