Student Reviews and Ratings for Wilmington College

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

All they care about is keeping face. This school is awful and the events that transpired there still haunt me I am glad I left when I did. The teacher rarely respond to emails, their idea of help is really to throw you to someone else, they want to make all these changes and have you do more online but their internet crashes repeatedly, if you have any problems they seem to prefer you keep quiet, they are very hypocritical with their teaching as well. This place is not only a waste of money but also time.

There a lot of great places on campus to hold meetings for 50 to 100 people!

Overall Rating:

I keep getting spam e-mails that talk about fungus, Hitler, and the like. A man named Dylan Whitehouse is the person sending these. The school itself might be great, but the students, or staff, are completely rude.

Overall Rating:

I transferred here for my last two years of school. One of the greatest decisions I could have made! I loved it here. I got the opportunities to join greek if I wanted, to go to other countries and even travels to other states for a marketing class. I love the professors and being able to have a relationship with them. I would definitely recommend this school for anyone.

Overall Rating:

If I could give no stars, I would. The administration takes the passive nature of Quakers much too seriously. I have never witnessed more passive aggressive, biased, hypocritical leadership in my life. The school runs backwards and discourages unique personalities and anyone that voices their own opinions that differ from those of the administration. They slander student organizations and will do anything in their power to sweep discrepancies under the rug. They have no sense of accountability.Do not fall for the "new student" propaganda. Once you commit, they couldn't give a rats ass about you.Do not even get me started about the academics. Most of the professors are wonderful, committed, and passionate about their work. However, the professors do what they can with what little they can provide. If you are outside the majors of Athletic training or Agriculture, the departments are seriously lacking in the tools and technology to truly provide you with a "hands on" experience. I graduated with a graphic design major without a single clue of how to put together a portfolio.The only reason I stayed all four years was because it was close to home and I cared too much about the organizations I was apart of to abandon them. That may be the only aspect worthy of the one star I have provided. The ability to be apart of multiple organizations at once was the back-bone of my resume. My education means nothing.The dorms, Greek houses, and most of the apartments outside The Village are run down and disgusting. There are students living in houses where half the building is condemned and unusable. The cleaning staff is completely inept. the food service, Sodexo, that continues to be contracted out (even after a landslide of complaints from students and staff) has failed inspection the past 3 years.I cannot stress this enough. DO NOT fall for the propaganda.
