I love going to COW. The dining experience isn’t the best, but everything else has surpassed my expectations!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Dining isn’t great. They are doing renovations right now and getting a new catering service, so I expect things to improve for the next class.

I really liked how kind and approachable the faculty are. I have yet to speak to a professor that's made me feel bad about my questions or myself.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think that the thing I like the least about Wooster isn't something that the College can really do anything about. Beall Avenue, the main road that runs through campus, isn't a super safe road. This is especially true at night and for minority students.

I love Wooster for its tight community. One reason why my anxiety and shyness disappeared is that nobody is looking for my failure. People are friendly and once you make that connection with professors, you are a step ahead of the game because they would make sure that you a top priority in every opportunity that opens. In general, the school is recognized alongside Princeton University as a preeminent college for undergraduate research opportunities, and it is the best liberal art school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I think this is a general school thing, but when there's a problem and students are protesting, it takes them a while to confront the matter which I detest.



I like that education is so highly valued here. I also like that diversity and issues surrounding diversity are of the utmost importance to the faculty and students that go here.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The food needs to be improved and the dorms need renovations.

The faculty and staff are 9/10 times, really great, and approachable. There are a decent amount of social activities but you need to get involved or start your own club to make friendships. It's not too difficult to start your own club, the administrative staff was helpful. Other students are generally nice. It's a smaller campus and amount of students so you can really get to know people. The senior research opportunity was a great experience personally and professionally.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Had some poor personal experiences that made things difficult socially when first attending. Moving from out of state and not having immediate access to peer support or mental health services made things more difficult than they should have been. It may be improved now. The school does not pay their workers a living wage which is unfair for what is preached in classrooms. Prepare to be on a campus with higher socio-economic, white, Midwest students. There are a decent amount of international students, and a lot of domestic and various racial groups stick to themselves socially. If you have work-study, you need to find employment, they won't remind or assist you in finding a position (it will be easier to get less competitive roles).

I loved The College of Wooster's academic focus and the outstanding commitment that the faculty and administration have to the students. Everyone in the Wooster community wants to see everyone around them succeed and will do anything in their power to help others do so. The campus community really becomes like a family and professors truly care about their students because of the unique mentorship and relationships that are able to be created with professors by students on campus.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I truly enjoyed my entire experience so far at Wooster. The only thing I wish I had known going into my first year would be that many of the dorms are quite small and some of the buildings are in worse shape than the ones displayed on tours.
