Student & Graduate Reviews (4)

3 out of 5
Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2018

I started going to Wilkes University, the Mesa Campus, because it was a really good school, great scholarship programs, great price and small classrooms. It was really nice and loved it, until in between my first semester there we were all told this campus was closing and the school was going online. I am a victim of bait and switch and if I were to move schools, I would loose all those scholarships that are allowing me to keep going to school to begin with . My school will now be all online and I loose the small class ambiance that allowed great networking , so I am quite upset. Do not go to this school. As a business major, networking is the most important thing and doing the degree online will ruin that, but I am in the middle of the degree and do not want to change as some classes might not transfer and I don't have the funds to replace those classes and it would lengthen my degree. As for my degree, I am in an accelerated program and I love that, because in a year and a half I can get my bachelors and I am one semester in there already, so one more year. I will be going to my masters directly, so I hope to have my master in 3 years total, if all goes accordingly.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2010

The teachers were excellent and recent construction has brought many advances in what is available. The small class sizes are very beneficial. The curriculum and research has helped me move on to graduate school.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2015

Class sizes are small with teachers getting to know their students well. The campus is small, making it easy to get to classes but facilities and extracurricular are more limited and the tuition rate is much higher than s public school. The school does not really stand out academically, athletically, or socially so I do not recommend coming here unless you have significant scholarships and don't have to live on-campus/ in an apartment.

Degree: Communication and Media Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

Wilkes is a liberal arts school so students are very well-rounded and receive not only an education but also a wordly view. There are so many things to get involved with and so many opportunities to take advantage of.
