10th & 11th Graders

Are you considering Widener University as one of your college choices?

Cool. We like that.

Now, make sure you keep up your studies because all four years of high school are important – not just your junior year.

What Do I Like?

But since you’re here, you may have lots of questions about what you like:

  • Do I like working with numbers? Words? Concepts? Making things?
  • Do I like playing a sports? 
  • Do I like music or theatre? 
  • Do I like helping others in the community?

A Good Fit?

You may also be wondering whether you’ll be a “good fit” for Widener, or whether you’ll do well in classes with many other fellow students, or perhaps you’re thinking about what it might be like to be leader on campus.

At this point, it’s probably a good idea to meet with your high school counselor to discuss any questions you have about majors, degrees, or financial assistance; so that he or she can help you focus on making the best choices.

Don’t forget to personalize your Widener web experience!
