"I wholeheartedly believe that education is the key to getting out of poverty and having career choices. I am the only person in my family to attend college and the only person in my family that is financially comfortable."

"Walsh University provided an individualized experience combined with a high quality education. Walsh has a safe,campus with a "home away from home" atmosphere. Catholic values, primarily that of serving the community, are instilled in students throughout the duration of their education. Many Walsh student are also athletes, so professors are generally accommodating towards the schedule of a student athlete as well."

"Walsh is has a very respected Counseling and Human Development (CHD) Master's program. However, the technology is not as good as it should be. Programs crash, the system lags, and the OS in the counseling center is not compatible with the server we use to record our sessions. The voicemail system is a joke, which makes it difficult to get messages from clients. Admittedly, they have been working on upgrades all year, so hopefully, these will be temporary problems. The teachers are great. They are available and helpful. They really help you learn your craft. One of the best things about the CHD program is the practicum opportunity. There is no need to locate a place for practicum; it is located on campus, at the Father Herttna Counseling Center. The Director of Counseling is on site and is very easy to talk to and is sincerely interested in helping students succeed."

"Pros: The counseling program is highly rated among professionals. The professors are helpful and approachable. The courses are intense, but concise. Cons: Only evening courses are available for the counseling program. Parking for commuter students is often difficult to find, due to designated lots being closed for other events."

"Pros: -Research based education that stays up to date with new research on effective physical therapy practice. -The professors are very approachable and treat all students like family. -The professors have won distinguished physical therapy awards and have had countless publications of research, not to mention published textbooks. -The PT program offers very diverse experiences to enhance learning (ex. clinical rotations in Italy, for MLB teams, etc.) -Classes bring in patients for hands-on learning to optimize clinical skills prior to clinical rotation. -Provide fundraising events so that students can afford to attend state and national PT conferences. -Mentorship program between second and first year students to build relationships and help with the undergraduate to graduate transition. -Very high standard for professionalism. Cons: -Days with long hours of class. -Very high workload."

  • Degree: Educational Leadership
"Walsh is a very positive enviroment for training of education administrators. The staff is quite well-versed on their subjects and material and prepare their students well for leadership roles in academia. The pros of the school are surely the teachers, as I have not a one that I would rate lower than fantastic in the four courses I have taken. As far as cons, the program itself doesn't really have any; as far as the school goes, as with any private school, tuition is a tad pricey."

"As a small campus of around 3000 students, class sizes are small and the professors are extremely knowledgable. The professors take the time to get to know each student, while relating the material to a real world environment. Walsh also has a great reputation within the local community and makes sure those resources are available to all students."

"Walsh is a true Catholic University of Distinction as the tagline suggests. Regardless if you are Catholic yourself (only about 50% of Walsh Students are), the Catholic education, service learning experiences, and overall friendliness of Walsh is hard to compete with. It is a beautiful campus with great people who want you to succeed."

"Walsh Universities program for Counseling and Human Development in Clinical Mental Health is one of the most competitive and well respected in the greater North East Ohio. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. I want to make a difference in the world and I know that Walsh will help me with that. Although this is the case, they do not provide great scholarship opportunities for Graduate Students. I hope to help change this one day."

"I attended Walsh University for my undergraduate degree (BSN completion) 20 years ago and am now starting my MSN-ANE. I attended a graduate student orientation this evening and was in awe with the number of programs supporting all students mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually! When I visited the university last month I was impressed with the growth of the campus. This is not the little college I had attended, it is a beautiful university with commuter areas, 2 work-out facilities, multiple parking areas, choice of dining facilities, numerous housing choices and state-of-the-art classrooms and labs. When I had attended Walsh previously, I commuted, did my class work and completed clinicals; never really feeling like I was a part of the student community. This evening, we were invited over and over to participate in a wellness program, exercise facilities, athletics, student organizations, counseling, and all the resources available to undergraduate students. It was wonderful hearing what is available to all students now. Looking over the on-line access to electronic resources for study and communication is exciting. Being in the "over-50" club (but having work experience on computers) it is looking user-friendly and I am enjoying the exploration of available resources."
