I love how small the classes are. It allows you to really get to know the students and professors. Building relationships with your professors is very important in your college career. They can expose you to many opportunities on the campus and off-campus. Winston Salem State University has given me so many wonderful opportunities I feel I wouldn’t have gotten anywhere else.

Color Guard
Babysitting And Childcare



Winston Salem State University made me feel right at home the minute I step foot on campus. Everyone was nice and my advisor helped me with everything I needed help with even if it was something minor. She even reached out to me to make sure everything was going smoothly.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

What I did not like about WSSU is the lack of space on our campus.
