Best thing about being a student at Wilkes University:
It’s been the place to be. I’m very happy here because there are just so many opportunities at my fingertips. I have been able to expand my horizons so much. I come from a small town and a home that was more secluded. Coming to Wilkes, I moved into the dorms and was living on the tenth floor. It’s amazing, especially considering the fact that my Anthropology teacher, Dr. Merryman, is now talking about my going to China and Tibet this summer. My world is expanding thanks to Wilkes University. I’ve met new people, had new experiences, and as a result, I’m thriving.

Why Wilkes: The opportunity to take advantage of options I didn’t have back home.
