Advice to prospective students:  Come into college with an open mind and be ready to take advantage of all the amazing opportunities W&J has to offer.  Look into different clubs and organizations to find what you like best and make sure when an elephant comes to campus, you go for a ride!

Why I chose W&J: I chose W&J because of the close-knit atmosphere of the school, the small class sizes and all the friendly people I met when I came to visit.  The free milkshakes at Monticello’s on Fridays also helped a little.
