My overall experience has been awesome. The counselors are very friendly and approachable. They are easy to talk to, and the professors are helpful and open to answering any questions. They want to see you succeed in the classroom and outside in the real-world.
I have had a great experience at Wilkes University. I transferred to Wilkes University from Luzerne County Community College. When I first started looking for schools to transferred to I was looking for a college with the most opportunities and the best professors.
