Health & Safety:
Campus security makes sure that Wiley's campus is under lock and key about 22 hours a day. Although they can't be everywhere at one time, they sure do a great job at doing the best that they can. Campus is pretty small ,so that makes it easier for campus security to know what's going on at all times.

Guys & Girls:
Wiley College is the home of students from all walks of life. At Wiley you'll find a lot of guys and girls with a vintage/90's look. Everybody is really into the "blast from the past"/ retro feel. Outside of the "vintagers" you can also find the guys and girls that are very preppy. ALL of the girls at Wiley College represent a true Wiley woman. From beauty and brains to class and sass. Most of the guys have a hard shell, but they are mostly soft and sweet on the inside.

Unfortunately, there aren't many "hang-out" spots on Wiley's campus. A lot of students hang out in the lobby of the living learning center and hanging out on "the yard" is a very popular spot. Thanks to the Student Union Advisory Board, Pre-Alumni Council, the International Club, and the plethora of other organizations, there are always activities and events being held throughout the week.

Academically Wiley College is the ultimate place to be. EVERY professor is more than willing to work with each and every student. There is never a student left behind. Wiley College has recently opened the Haywood L. Strickland living learning center and are in the process of rebuilding our student union. Wiley College is the FIRST HBCU (historically black colleges and universities) west of the Mississippi. This prestigious institution provides every student with a n opportunity to be involved on campus and throughout the community. Wiley College is the place to be!

Greek life can so much better if all the greek organizations could get along and strive to be better as whole in stead of competing for who's the best.

I gave my school an A , because we are family oriented we love one another, and it shows. Even though we do not have a fancy student union
we still come together in different buildings as one to enjoy planned events. Also if someone sees you stuggling we help that person if they want help. The teachers show that they care and you are not just a number to them, you a adult that wants to better their situation. I love My HBCU.

My work load is pretty moderate at the beginning of the semester, but there is not just a work load that is outstanding and hard to stay on top of. If you do your work when it is assigned it will be alot easier to pass your classes as well as have a college experience.
The curriculum is standard , not so much advanced or to complicated. Like I stated if it is to hard to grasp all you have to do is ask for help.
My major being criminal justice , majority of my classes are organized pretty well. They're interesting of course , and I always leave with a better undetstanding of the criminal justice system I value that.

Wiley is designed to allow all students who give effort to succeed. Most of the teachers are there to do a service, it is not just a job but they enjoy teaching. It shows a great amount. This is what I appreciate most about my HBCU. Academic wise there is someone on the campus that will help you no matter what. If you try you will succeed. Not to say it is super easy but you must do the needful to pass your classes . Such as going to class, doing your homework, etc.

Wiley is a HBCU, most of our buildings are really historic. We are currently renovating our student union. I believe once it is finished then our campus will come together and more upgrades will be made in the future.

The computer labs are average. Almost every building that you go to has a computer lab so thats always nice.

Its small campus but some people from the community always seem to cause trouble and security do not really know how to handle it.

The athletic department is great. The home games are always very exciting and entertaining.

I think we should have more checks for drugs on campus.

I have enjoyed my academic college career. I am a double major and I have had some very intense classes, but my professors worked with me and allowed me to become a better student. I love that I have gained so much knowledge in the last 3 years then I have ever learned in my life. I have been on the presidents list the last 2 years. I know that anything is possible if you try in class, participate, and actually put forth effort. My instructors care so much and there dedication shows but the time that they dedicate to the school and the students.

The campus is strict however its for the safety of the students and faculty. Nothing in the handbook is not something that wont affect you at one point and time during your Wiley College career. The police are very important at this school because they keep us safe during parties and during the night. Wiley College is an open campus and does have to endure traffic from cars and people. Therefore to keep us safe police is very important. The school is understanding when it comes to student making mistakes, however they will not accept a student making the same mistake over and over again at that time they will then take action.

Greek Life is a big part of this college specially because most of the chapters here are the first chapters in Texas or some of the first in the nation. One example is Alpha Kappa Alpha chapter is 88 years old and in 2008 the Sorority itself reached centennial. Its not a big deal but it will make your experience so much better. I enjoy the atmosphere and I feel that the college would not be the same without Greek life.
College Senior 2013-01-22T23:02:29Z
I attend Wiley College, Although it is a small school it has allowed me the personal connection with my professors that I need in order to really understand my major and it also allows me to receive experiences that a large school would not provide. The ability to talk to my professor has helped me become the successful student I am today. Also the environment is very open and the people are very supportive when it involves someones goals, dreams, or aspirations.

The transportation at Wiley is fairly good. There is decent local transportation system that runs once every hour on weekdays, that is usually on time and pretty quick to take you to your destination, and aside from that the school has recently set up its own system to take you exactly where you need to go, although it is slightly less reliable than the public system.

Drug use at Wiley College is prominent and pretty belligerent. On any given night walking past Thirkield hall, our largest and most prestigious building, you can smell the pungent odor of marijuana wafting through the air. People are sometime so bold as to smoke in front of professor and members of the administration. However though, there isn't a lot of peer pressure to smoke, many students stick to an "to each his own philosophy" .

Some parties are off campus. Others happen on the same night. So some be boring.

Wiley is located in East Texas. Texas alone has the most unpredictable weather so you never know what to expect.
