Texas Woman's University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (21)
I went to Texas Woman's University for my undergraduate degree. It is a great place for both women and men to be educated. The campus is not too big, so you are able to get the community feel that you aren't always able to experience at larger universities. The professors are warm and the classes are challenging yet engaging. I will always be grateful for the four years at Texas Woman's University where I was able to grow as a leader and a woman/
I am currently an undergraduate at Texas Woman's University pursing a Bachelors of Science in Public Health and will continue my education after my graduation in December 2017. I plan to pursue a Masters of Science in Public Health in Spring of 2018. The undergraduate degree plan consist of varies health studies courses. Students who pursue a degree in health studies have varies job opportunities, since they are needed in all areas of healthcare and wellness. TWU offers a list of resources for health studies students that include scholarships, career options, internships, professional organizations, and current job openings for health educators.
I entered TWU as a traditional college freshman, both away from home and away from family and friends. I initially chose the Denton campus because of the welcoming atmosphere, beautiful and clean grounds covered with Redbud trees, various student support services, and smaller class sizes, but I further learned they have so much more to offer. Required to live in the dorms for the first year and living in the on-campus apartments, I was never far from resources, such as free (black and white) printing, dining services, or student life. The core classes and electives that are usually taken the first two years offers incoming freshman a chance to become acclimated to the general class expectations before starting their major curriculum. I started out as a chemistry/ biology pre-med major, which meant lots of time spent in SLRC, the Science Learning Resource Center, one of the free student resources that offers tutoring, past lab reports and exams, and textbooks; every professor is also required to have office hours to help students and faculty have open communication. Deciding that pre-med was not the best suited for me, I took advantage of the career center and counseling services that ultimately led me to major in Social Work and graduate with a BSW. The Career Center also assisted me in getting two of my jobs that I had on campus, and having a student job was extremely helpful as only 20 hours a week are allowed, which is reasonable to allow students time for schoolwork, and the employer usually works with the students to ensure fair scheduling. By the time I graduated I had made several close friends and a connection to the area that I will never forget; Denton is not only the location of two major universities but is also the home to many supportive organizations like a local food bank and garden, United Way, and Friends of the Family for victims of domestic violence, as well as the Denton Square, which is in walking distance from TWU, that has restaurants and boutiques and a historical courthouse and holds several fun community activities like free yoga, live music, and old fashioned ice cream. Often the TWU Chancellor can be seen having tea with students or riding around on her bike or supporting the athletics department, allowing the student body to engage with her on a personal level. As the chancellor shared with me, attending TWU is like having a campus that has a private school feel, with a public school cost.
I really enjoyed my time at Texas Woman's University. I started right out of high school and moved to Denton onto a floor in the dorms specifically for nursing majors who would take a few core classes together. My sophomore year, I became a Resident Assistant and lived in a different dorm with the same nursing cohort idea. I moved to Dallas for nursing school and had to make friends all over, because my previous study group went to the Houston campus. I enjoyed the lectures and felt very connected with the campus and my teachers. I was in the Honors Program, so there was always more expected from me, and I was happy to work hard to be considered the best. I graduated, passed NCLEX, and felt very prepared for my first nursing job. I would recommend the Texas Woman's University Undergraduate Nursing Program to anyone who wants to excel in nursing.
As a Texas Woman's University undergraduate, I learned so much about myself as an individual. My instructors were amazing and very knowledgeable in the subject. I really did enjoy the experience and I met so many great individuals. I was part of the Food and Nutrition Network in which I volunteered and was able to meet some great people in the Dietetics field. Now I am looking forward to continue my education and obtain a Master's degree.
TWU is a great school for anyone who wants to have that college experience but not go to a large institution. The faculty and staff are so friendly and they know you by name and will do anything to assist you. The students have set multiple traditions that are done to this day. This is a great school if you want to pursue Nursing, Physical Therapy, Education, etc. TWU is family and we look out for one another. You won't regret your decision.
TWU is a well rounded school and provides a lot of opportunity for their students to have a valuable education. I highly recommend this school to students who are focused on the educational side of the college experience. There are still many opportunities to create a social life on campus but the definitely emphasize the educational side. You are valued on this campus and all your professors truly care and what the best for you.
I had the opportunity to study at TWU undergrads for my BS in Family study. TWU facilities were fantastic and work with each individual. They were also very respectful. I was able to value myself as black woman. I understood the important of education and using knowledge to achieved greatness. I was able to embrace my individualist, cultural background and diversity; that I was at one time to shy and scared to do. One thing I can take away from TWU is that everyone is different and it is up to us to have a open mind and learn from people that is different from you. By doing that you will be opening your mind to amazing horizons that one cannot reach if he/she is close minded
The theatre department here is small and focused so that every student has the option of one on one time with the instructors. All the faculty have connections to DFW theatre and beyond, consistently offering theatre jobs and summer stock. Great opportunities for networking and broadening horizons. The small class size allows students to get their hands on every aspect of theatre: design, construction, directing, analysis and more. A great department for experienced theatre kids and newcomers alike.
This school prepared me for anything that may come my way in the real world. I felt so safe the entire time I was on campus both living and commuting. The curriculum was incredible and as a woman I gained so much insight and awareness for my self, peers and society. I am so incredibly thankful for my education from Texas Woman's University and recommend it to all.
