Does it Cost Money to get involved in clubs or other activites besides sororities?
Wingate University
Hi Noelle! There are no separate starter fees to participate in clubs and organizations on campus, besides sororities and fraternities. These are meant to be fun ways to get involved without placing a financial burden on students. However, there may be additional activities planned within clubs that could require personal money, but they are not typically a requirement!

Quiet place.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is only a one or two professors on the entire school that teach a specific class. More professors should be hired so there just won’t be one professor for a specific class.

Wingate is a good school to get started at. It is very easy to get involved, and the teachers genuinely care about you. They are a Christian liberal arts school, so that is something to be aware of.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It just does not feel like home to me. I came expecting it to be a Christian school, but it is only that in the title. I just do not feel at ease here. It is also a big party school which no one tells you beforehand.

What I like about Wingate University is that it is close to home. It's a small private university and is in a small town.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Once you take a class at Wingate you have to take it there, you can not take it anywhere else.
