Deanna Whitfield - 5/28/2019
Degree: Dental Hygiene
Graduation Year: 2009
"Texas Woman's University is a small school, but it does not lack anything that a large university has. Although the name implies women only, man are allowed into undergraduate and graduate programs. It has outstanding academics. The dental hygiene school is one of only five 4-year universities offered in Texas. With it's small campus, it caters to many non-traditional students."

"Texas Woman's University has been such a blessing to me. They are extremely flexible and work with you as students. They truly understand the work/life/balance so many of us are tackling. I had some of the greatest professors there and learned so much about my area of study. They really prepare you for the world whether you are ready or not. My area of study was in public health promotion and education and my professors kept encouraging my cohort to become Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES) after we complete our degree. They even encorporated some of the CHES content into their classroom materials. I am extremely happy to say that I obtained my CHES because of them and it has helped my resume become more attractive for the workforce."

Ms George - 1/24/2019
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"I would not recommend this school of Nursing. Nurses are familiar with the term 'older nurses eating their young'. The Dean's and Instructors at this school are very authoritarian and prefer nursing students kiss their behinds. They participate in arbitrary and capricious grading. Avoid this school if you are pursuing nursing education."

Michelle - 1/7/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2010
"I loved this school!! It was small enough to keep you from feeling overwhelmed, yet big enough to allow you to feel like you received the true college experience. The campus is easily walkable and the facilities are top notch. Just a few years ago, they built a new fitness center which is truly top of the line. In terms of academics, they are phenomenal! The teaching staff is highly-acclaimed and there are typically no more than 50 students in a classroom (this number may be greater now). I really loved the way the teachers connected with us during class, I always felt as though they were approachable after class and during office hours. One of the greatest benefits of attending TWU is the athletics. They have a phenomenal gymnastics team, which is the only college-level team in the state of Texas. Similarly, they have volleyball, basketball, soccer, and softball team who have won a number of awards. All of the games are free for students and the facilities are small and create a really welcoming environment. The school is located in a great city, very close to the University of North Texas. This is a nice touch for those looking to experience a college-level football game and gives you the opportunity to connect with more students. Denton is also a charming small-town city that has been upgraded to feel more modern. The downtown area, known as the square, is home to a number of great bars and restaurants, as well as coffee shops for studying. It is an incredibly safe area and school, one I would feel comfortable sending my own children to."

This school is a joke! - 12/2/2018
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school is such a joke. It's a shame that there are only 24 reviews. These reviews make the school seem reputable but students (especially graduate) have different opinions. Professors are low quality, lazy, and unethical. The school is cheap for a reason. BEWARE."

Catherine Kamau - 6/28/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2006
"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."

Angela - 12/9/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2007
"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!"

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2003
"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."

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012
"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/"
