Texas Woman's University Reviews
I was fortunate to do the Associates to Master's degree program they offered in 2003-2006. It was phenomenal and intense. I found it challenging and supportive at the same time. Texas Woman's University is a public college that feels like a private school. The access to instructors is commendable and the structure of classes almost felt tailored to my needs as a working student. The most impressive thing I found about TWU was how they accommodated working mothers. We had mothers breastfeeding in class while others would in infants in car seats during the lecture halls. This was a common sight during my Master's programme and I really appreciated seeing this. The mothers worked just as hard and anyone else and found acceptance in the school's culture.
I visited UTA, Baylor and TWU before decided on my BSN program. Baylor staff was supportive, but the school was out of my budget! UTA had a solid program, but TWU felt like the best fit. PROs: The staff was very supportive. I had a challenging time in Dr. T's pharmacology class, and would go to her with questions after each test. She took her personal time to help me understand what I had missed. Because of her help and A LOT of dedicated studying, I increased my test score from first test to last test by 30 points. They have a beautiful new campus and lot of room, so the environment is condusive to studying. Professional, I've now worked with several of their faculty who are innovative and work closely with area hospitals so their students are prepared for the workforce, and also so their alumnis have solid career choices. I felt prepared when I graduated to be a nurse. CONS: There are several classes that I felt didnt make the best use of my time. They weren't clinically based (like an aging class), so check the degree plan!
Texas Woman's University is an excellent choice for students interested in a smaller university and students who are interested in focusing on academics. TWU is an extremely inclusive community with exceptional health care programs. Classes are small and professors available to give attention to students.
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.
