The College of Wooster

Wooster is America’s premier college for mentored undergraduate research.

Wooster offers an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts education, culminating in a rigorous senior project, in which each student works one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, organize and complete a significant research project on a topic of the student’s own choosing. Through this distinctive program, every Wooster student develops abilities valued by employers and graduate schools alike: independent judgment, analytical ability, creativity, project-management and time-management skills, and strong written and oral communication skills. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately 2,000 students.

What do kids think of the president?

Children think about politics. And based on surveys from 1950 to today, it seems children hold far less favorable views of the president’s personal characteristics now than they did 70 years ago.
