Your Second Home Awaits

Student Experience

You’ll know it when you feel it. The sense of belonging. The thrill of shared purpose. The excitement of life in a community where your fellow students care as much as you do—about learning, about connecting with others, about exploring their interests and their world.

Come Join the Pride 

A walk across this campus is like hanging out with friends. You’ll see classmates who are also teammates, professors who are also mentors, lab partners who have the same three lions on their shirts—people with the widest range of interests and talents you'll have ever encountered.

Known and supported at every step, you will find a second home in this dynamic community, enjoying life today while preparing for the future.

The thrill of exchange is the engine that drives us. Pride is the glue that holds us together.

Activities & Events

Explore Life on Campus

Everything starts with our people. (A finer bunch you'll never meet.) We make our home on a beautiful campus a stone's throw from the nation's greatest city (we are in no way biased). Here you'll live well (and eat even better) in the finest of company. 

Sports & Rec

Ways to Engage

Our students are multi-talented (and multi-interested), bringing energy and purpose to a wide range of clubs and ensembles. They play hard (and cheer even harder) for our many varsity and club teams (Go Pride!). When curiosity calls, they deepen their education with exploration of communities around the world.

Faculty Mentorship

Whatever You Need

All that's required to thrive in this community is a desire to succeed and a willingness to put in the work. Our faculty and staff will guide your path and applaud your progress. There's no shame in needing help sometimes (we all do). At Widener, we make each other better.
