ALUMNI STORIES & TESTIMONIALS
"While the challenges of my professonal career were relentless, Waynesburg College provided me with the mental, physical, and spiritual grounding to meet these challenges head on. I am still empowered by the mentoring relationships developed with my professors at Waynesburg, and the personal attention I received that enabled me to raise my intellectual skills to the next level.
I still continue to benefit from the long hours on the football field when I was a member of the Yellow Jacket football team and from the nurturing spiritual environment at Waynesburg. My Waynesburg experience did not end when I graduated...it only began."
"As a graduate of Waynesburg, I am very grateful for the personal attention I received. I oftentimes found myself in very small classes where I could have a one-on-one dialogue with the professor. The word that most reflects my experience at Waynesburg is opportunity. I had the opportunity to be involved in many activities and varsity sports. I had the opportunity to excel in and out of the classroom while being in a nurturing environment.
While attending medical school at a larger university, I often found myself yearning for the days of smaller classes and very personal attention I received at Waynesburg. Because of this attention, I had a very strong foundation in the basic sciences that made succeeding in medical school much easier.
The legacy of Waynesburg that is with me today is the commitment to service and learning. Now that I am finally a physician and practicing in a small community, I realized that Waynesburg was the perfect place for me. Waynesburg gave me the foundation to commit myself to a career in lifelong learning and service to others."
"Waynesburg prepared me not only for a challenging curriculum in law school, but also a successful career in federal law enforcement. As I consider my career as a special agent in the United States Secret Service (presently assigned to the presidential Protective Division), and a member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the Bar of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, it is quite clear that my experience at Waynesburg and the outstanding education I received there laid the groundwork for an exciting, rewarding, and challenging career.
As a student at Waynesburg, I enjoyed the small classes and personal attention I received during my course of study. The knowledgeable faculty, the diverse selection of courses in the criminal justice major, and the liberal arts education I received armed me with a thorough understanding and appreciation for the criminal justice system.
Waynesburg promotes excellence not only in the classroom, but in the community as well. As a student, I was exposed to local, state, and federal law enforcement officials, which supplemented my studies. I had the honor of working with the Waynesburg Borough Police Department as an intern during my junior and senior years at Waynesburg. This provided invaluable insight into the criminal justice system at work, which I will value throughout my career."
