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.
