“As someone who is extremely busy with my new career, family life, volunteer work, etc., I needed a good quality program that would fit my schedule. Wilmington University provides everything I need with an outstanding curriculum and faculty. I am able to work at my own pace, from my computer 1,000 miles away from Wilmington University. I could not have made a better choice.” -Wayne Buchanan, M.S. in Administration of Justice

“I tell my friends, family and co-workers that WilmU is a great school for working adults and anyone who wants to go back to school to pursue a higher education, because the university really works with you—they want you to succeed.” -Farah Sabahat, B.S. in Elementary Education K-6
