Advice to Prospective Students:  Check out the cafeteria at any college you visit.  You will be eating there for the next four years of your life!

Why I Chose W&J: I graduated from a small high school, so I was looking for a small, liberal arts college where I could major in history and still be in the Pre-Health Program. I also looked for a college with a well-known, rigorous Pre-Health Program.
