  • I am a current student here

    I have absolutely enjoyed every minute that I've been at Gardner-Webb. I feel like this is exactly where I am supposed to be; it is my home away from home. From the campus and the courses, to the students and professors, to the clubs and activities - I love everything that Gardner-Webb has to offer. I fell in love with this school the first time I visited, and after living on campus for a year my admiration is still just as strong.

    I am living at my house, but as I said, I go to the campus once a week, and I really do enjoy it. I just started at GWU, as I stated, and I really do enjoy it! I always tell everyone that I come in contact with that I really am enjoying it. Also, everybody is so very kind here at GWU, the professors, employees, advisors, and other students.
