Also a current Woo student here, but just wanted to add that I have had a completely different experience regarding friends, social scene, etc.
@AFM as someone who knows many people who work for admissions, I can guarantee that your daughter will have people to talk to if she comes over spring break because they make sure students can be there at all times to assist everyone.
As for the party scene, I spoke about this on my own thread but though it is prevalent, it is not the most popular thing on weekends nor is it the only thing for students to do on weekends. The school makes sure to have events during the week and weekend to ensure that students are entertained, and if a student is still not satisfied, they always have the opportunity to join the student activities board to have a say. Last weekend there was the annual Winter Gala, open to all students, where there was food, music, a photo booth and more. This weekend there is an International Food Festival, also open to all students, which will include students making a variety of dishes that represent them and their cultures. Yes, people party and people drink, but I do not think it is the only option here at Woo to have a good time.
In regards to friend groups and making friends, people are almost always more than happy and open to make more friends, as it is a smaller campus. I find it hard to not have a person to recognize and be able to at least have a small chat with on your way to class or in the dining hall, simply because we have so many interactions with everyone. Through the 120+ clubs and classes, everyone has a group to find, but also groups to expand. The students at Woo I find are also to be very approachable and welcoming, so making friends is possible with the right amount of effort, but obviously it depends on how comfortable and social a person is.
Finally, I am from Ohio. I never had been to OH, known anyone from OH or knew of anyone who had been to Wooster before attending. Though you will meet passionate Ohioans, it is very obvious that not everyone knew each other before school and that not everyone is from Ohio; and it is not something that I found to isolate me. There are only about 5-7 people from my state (yes, really) but I find that all students put aside where they are from when socializing initially. I’ve met people from Alaska, Utah, China, Vietnam, Italy, etc. There are people from everywhere.
