Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to visit Washtenaw International High School! I thoroughly enjoyed meeting with a few students and talking about Wittenberg. I was so impressed with WI, and the strong caliber of students you have! There were a few main things that seemed to excite the students I spoke with that I thought I would share with you!
The Wittenberg size and classroom experience
Wittenberg is a small, liberal arts university of 1800 students in Springfield, Ohio. What does this mean? It means you have incredible opportunities! With all PhD faculty and an average classroom size of 16-19 students, Wittenberg students have an abundance of options for hands-on experiences. Our professors are incredibly accessible and love to get to know their students. In fact, we were ranked fourth in the nation for Most Accessible Professors by the Princeton Review!
Wittenberg Academic Offerings
Our campus has top programs for Biology, Business and Education. Not only that, but we offer 80 other majors, minors and programs! We also have partnerships with other universities such as 3-2 programs in Engineering (Case Western Reserve & Columbia University), Environmental Studies (Duke University), and Occupational Therapy (Washington University). We also offer a 3-4 program in Nursing with Case Western. These programs allow students to earn a degree from Wittenberg in 3 years, and then go on to the partnering university to earn either an additional bachelor’s degree or a master’s degree. All of our degrees and course offerings can be found on our website at www.wittenberg.edu
Bill Martin Scholarship
Last, but certainly not least, is the Bill Martin Scholarship! This is a full-tuition scholarship awarded to a student residing in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Students must apply for Wittenberg Admission and for the Bill Martin Scholarship by the Early Action I deadline of December 1st. You can find more information online at http://www5.wittenberg.edu/admission/scholarship/martin.html .
I look forward to working with many WIHI students within the next few years, and I invite you all to come visit our campus! I work with all Michigan students and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can contact me at 937-327-6317 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
