Student life at Widener is second to none, proving that you don't have to go to a big university to be part of vibrant campus life. You can pursue an abundance of exciting options without ever leaving campus. Or you can venture off campus to enjoy esteemed museums, major metropolitan theatre and dance companies, professional sports teams such as the Philadelphia Eagles or the Philadelphia Phillies, and world-class shopping–all within minutes from campus. When you become part of the Pride, no matter who you are, where you're from, or where your passions and talents lie, you're bound to feel at home.

You'll be welcomed into a diverse and inclusive community where all backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives are respected and embraced.

Academic coaching is provided through one-on-one sessions or group meetings with a trained academic coach who will assist students in various areas. Academic coaches also perform many academic success workshops throughout the academic year. Any full-time undergraduate day student can sign up to meet with an academic coach.

The goal of the Office of Career Services is to empower you to become the leader of your professional destiny, connecting your unique passions with meaningful work. From helping you write your résumé and prepping you for an interview to coach you through a cooperative education (co-op) experience, our advisors are on hand.

The disability service office assists students with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, or psychological disabilities. We work cooperatively with students to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to access academic programs and other university life aspects.
