Variety is the spice of Campus Life.

Widener University students have big appetites for fun, learning, and connection, and Widener has the resources to feed those appetites.

Clubs and Organizations

Our 80 student clubs and organizations let you explore almost any interest. You can host a radio show, step out with the Widener Dance Company, or lead in student government. We do community service too, with literacy, neighborhood clean-up, and other outreach projects in Chester and around the world.

Sports and Recreation

Widener's motto is Mens Sana in Corpore Sano, which translates into "a sound mind in a sound body." So it should come as no surprise that at Widener, we believe that physical activity is just as important to your overall success as academic, civic, and social engagement. Whether you're a competitive athlete or just want to keep fit, you'll enjoy our modern recreational facilities and a variety of co-ed intramural and club sports.

Speakers and Events

We keep our neurons firing and our professional networks growing with cool lectures like the Philadelphia Speakers Series and the Sport Management Speakers Series. We even have our very own museum, observatory, and art gallery.

Residence Life

Our residence halls and apartments, are great places to relax with friends. And our dining halls and food court are perfect when we want to chow down or stock up on munchies.
