A good college overall.

Overall Rating:

The academics are great, and the class sizes are amazing. No complaints there.The problem is the dorms, parking, and meal plan. Seeing roaches and centipedes in dorm room is very bad. For the money it cost to go here you think they would clean the dorms, and actually fix roach issues. In some dorms, the starewells haven't even been cleaned this whole semester. Moving in on the first day and having to clean your own apartment is discusting. It's like they didn't even touch the room since the last people moved out. At least make it look clean!The bathrooms are not cleaned at all on the weekend so sometimes it gets really nasty.The parking pass price raised up even more, but yet if you want to drive anywhere during 8am-5pm your spot will be taken and you will have to hunt for 20 min at least to find one.With the meal plan, it is called unlimited. But you can not go 2 times in one period. Which is annoying if you just want a snack and then dinner later.

First, it is a beautiful campus and VERY safe! Just because it says Chester doesn't mean it is automatically a dangerous area. Police and campus safety make sure students on and off campus are safe. Second, the classes are a normal size, like a high school would be, so there is a bigger connection between student and professor. Third, the classes are rigorous and if you go to Widener and don't believe that then maybe your major is too easy for you, or you are taking easier classes. As an engineer, the professors push us as far as we can go, but this rigor is important in my eyes because it prepares us better. The research programs and opportunities are something you cannot beat! They also have a co-op program that is 12 months of experience in 4 years, and I HIGHLY suggest this! Honestly, it doesn't get any better, so keep Widener in your radar!

I have had a good experience taking online classes at Widener. I was reluctant to go back to school because I did not want to take more than one class at a time; at Widener I can do that, for the most part. My education has been a quality one.

Overall Rating:

Widener has been a true blessing for muy daughter! She is thriving thanks to the AMAZING PROFESSORS that truly care. They are able to have one on one time thanks to the small class size. Well worth the money!
