Winston-Salem State University Graduate Reviews

5 reviews
I chose Winston Salem State for grad school based mostly for cost. However, during an open house, I felt positive energy from the professors---a real desire to teach and make future professionals. This is something I find consistently with this school: there is a desire to foster an attitude of service, respect, and energy toward purpose. The campus is not in a good area, not the prettiest, and the food is just so-so. Really, my biggest complaints about the school are not feeling terribly safe walking to my car at night and problems with the administration. The administration actually drives me crazy. I have had lots of hold ups and run into barrier after barrier when trying to deal with financial aid and parking, etc. There are a few great employees, but largely I have encountered inconsistency, poorly designed systems, and unhappy employees unwilling to work with you, which is a shame because I love the PT department and all the hard-working people in the Health Sciences school.

WSSU is a great HBCU. The only horrible thing about it - financial aid & office. Student life is amazing! It easy to find an awesome balance between work and play. SO proud to be a RAM!
As a graduate student, I am not typically involved with campus events. My program provides a strong education to prepare me to enter the workforce. The administration offices are very disorganized and difficult to deal with. Tuition is affordable compared to other universities.
