Located in the heart of Chester!
It is a place where you dont want to cross the bridge or else you might get shot. It has about 5,000 students yet the parties are always at the same few houses or andorn. You always know someone at a party; almost everyone. The drunk bus is very convenient. It is the only school that can order pizza at 3am in the morning from ACAPULCO! While walking on campus late at night, a car drives by, and the thought of "a drive by" or getting raped by a CHESTERITE runs through your head at least once. Gotta love Chester!!!
Widener University is a private, metropolitan university that connects curricula to social issues through civic engagement. Dynamic teaching, active scholarship, personal attention, and experiential learning are key components of the Widener experience. A comprehensive research university, Widener offers liberal arts and sciences and professional programs leading to associate's, baccalaureate, master's and doctoral degrees.
Widener University students use the Philadelphia metropolitan area as a learning laboratory. For example, communications students made a promotional video for the United Way of Southeastern Delaware County that is being shown on Chester Cable TV.
