The Wofford College campus is beautiful. The academics at Wofford College are superior with the small class size, professors that take the time to know their students both in and out of the classroom, and a large variety of majors to choose from. Wofford is a safe campus and has worked hard to show its diversity in the students that go there as well as the staff working there. The dorms are above average for a school their size and the food is good. Student life

Living on campus is a double edged sword. Of course I wanted to live in a dorm an experience "real college life" at least my first year. The dorms at Wofford are horrendous, Especially Marsh. Luckily I got into Greene which was renovated last year, if you want to call it that. I'm afraid with my allergies, I would literally have died in Marsh! For the price of tuition/room/board at Wofford, I can see NO REASON that their dorms are in the shape they are I! I understand wanting to keep the original exterior look of the buildings, to keep the traditional feel campus in tact, but the interior of those dorms should have long since been gutted and been redone!
Wofford was a great school academically. However, diversity lacked as well as poor housing for freshmen. I think Wofford would greatly benefit from making a more inclusive environment especially when it comes to diversity. Also, food could be a lot better looking at the cost of attendance.
