At the heart of the Widener experience are the talented and caring professors who make their students' education and personal well-being their first priority.
Guidance and connections from mentors help place our students on the inside track to personal and professional success.
I’ve had one of the best experiences in education that I could have ever imagined.
Ultimately you have a place to come home to, and I feel that there’s a home for me at Widener.
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 knew that coming to Widener would mean opportunities to meet speakers working in the industry. And, I know that when the time comes, I will be able to turn to them to help find a job.
When I’m in a patient’s room, assessing and giving medications, I hear my professors’ voices from lectures. They’ve made me the best nurse I could possibly be and continue to grow into.
You make time for the things you love. I love chemistry and learning. I love being a leader on campus and learning how to be a better person every day.
