Mamadou Keita is mentored by Professor Stephanie Schechner

I am very fortunate to have come to this country and received one of the best educations. My mindset now is ‘how can I give that type of opportunity to others back home in Guinea?’

Alanna's Story

At Widener I’ve been getting ready for my career by doing it, in the lab and at my internship. When I graduate, I won’t just be starting my career. I’ll be continuing the work that I’ve been doing all along.

DeShawn Ivey

DeShawn'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.
