What Do I 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.
Learn more about Widener and what we have to offer by:
- Chatting with someone on our staff.
- Coming for a campus visit.
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.
