Student Life

Your Community. Founded Here.

When you arrive at W&J, you become part of a talented and engaging student body that is recognized for its abilities, dedication and integrity. W&J offers exceptional opportunities to participate in activities outside of the classroom that all add value to your education and experience inside the classroom. You will have access to mentors, advisors, peer counselors and success consultants that will help you navigate your time on campus.

Living at W&J College

From our First Year Residence Halls to Residential Learning Communities, you'll find a place to call home. You'll join a safe and supportive community for sharing meals and making memories.

Thriving the First Year

All four years at W&J College are fun, but your first year is special. Meet your first roommates. Connect with your alumni mentor (who will send you cookies on your first day!). Find your tribe. Your first year is the beginning of belonging to a strong, lifelong community.

Finding Yourself at W&J College

Maybe you know your goal is medical school. Or maybe you're not sure yet where you're headed. Both paths are possible at W&J College. Here, you'll discover limitless connections. You might uncover connections between cuisine and communication that will make you a better cook and a better doctor, or unearth a passion for wildlife conservation through one of the student clubs.

My background with psychology from W&J helped me get this position (with Focus Behavioral Health). I want to be doing what I am currently doing for the rest of my life, and I could not be happier to start now.

What is one of your best W&J memories?

My favorite W&J memory (as corny as it sounds) is when I joined Delta Gamma my freshman year. Joining that sorority is what made my experience here at W&J whole. I was extremely close to transferring that year, but then I met 50+ girls who became my support system. From that day on, all my best memories have come from that house.

What are you going to miss the most about W&J?

I will miss the sense of community the most. As a small liberal arts college, you are given the opportunity to build meaningful relationships both within and outside of the classroom setting. I value the intimacy that this school provides and the opportunities that you are given to build life-long friendships, as well as professional connections.
