Advice to Prospective Students: Be open to new experiences and try everything once. Some of my
favorite memories and closest friends have been the result of campus activities or clubs I would never have thought twice about. But, I tried them and some of them have blossomed into passions that have helped guide my future career choice.
Why I Chose W&J: During my college search, I realized that it’s almost impossible to find a truly distinguished, small graduate school and that if I wanted to experience a small-school setting that offers small class sizes and a personalized education, it would have to be as an undergraduate. So, I came to W&J and it’s a decision I’ve never once regretted.
