Pride Perspectives

Here from our international students about their experiences.

Daniel van der Spoel meets with Prof. Sachin Patil in an engineering lab.

This year really opened my eyes to other fields. I was really able to explore and bridge into different areas to see what I like and see what I don't like. I learned a lot about what I want to do in the future.

Widener has done a really good job preparing me for what hands-on work was going to look like, how I can use my major, and what options I have.

I know this was the right program for me. If someone was wondering if Widener was the right place for their MBA, I would just say go for it.

Karina's Story

Classes are small. So you can actually have that deep conversation with professors. It turns into an almost individual class and becomes better in the learning process.
