Welcome to Widener!

Hi! My name is Shelby and I am a third-year student here at Widener Law Commonwealth. I am also the President of the Student Ambassador Club, which is focused on providing both interested and incoming students with as much advice, information, and help as we can provide in making the decision to attend Widener. Each week, a Student Ambassador will be writing about a topic of his or her choosing. This is my week!

I will admit, at first, that I struggled in choosing a topic to write about. I think this is because my “school life” has changed significantly for myself and many others. We have made the transition from in-person, on-campus schooling to virtual, at-home schooling. This has been a weird transition, but a transition I will never forget.

This transition has made me appreciate the community that Widener Commonwealth offers, which I think many large schools do not. Due to our relatively small class sizes, I feel that I have been able to get to know my classmates, professors, and school administrators on a much deeper and more personal level than I would have been able to, had I gone to a larger school.

I think this is one of the biggest “positives” that Widener Commonwealth has to offer its students. I have made so many close friends and made connections with professors that I know will are here to help me through law school as well as with life after I graduate.

A small school is certainly a change from the large universities that many of us come from, but it has been a wonderful change. I will always appreciate the connections – both personal and professional – that I have made here at Widener.
