“At W&J you become part of a family. You have the chance to make connections in that family that will last you a lifetime, and you have the chance to take opportunities in this family that will foster your personal growth.”

“W&J encourages students to get out of their comfort zone and try something they only dreamed of doing. W&J prepared me (for my internship) in several ways, but the most notable thing that W&J has given me is the ability to talk with important figures comfortably. I think it has to do with how small the school is and how personable the staff is.”

"The support we have through W&J to be able to travel is unique. That’s specific to W&J. By the time I graduate from W&J, my goal is to have visited every continent. Thanks to the Magellan Project, I’m already halfway there."
