3 College Freshman

Diversity: The school is very diverse in ways were they have brought many different types of people to the campus. We have people from Bahrain, Spain, Alaska, New jersey, and basically the entire USA. We have challenges because some of the teachers speak a different language and it is hard to understand them sometimes.

Computers: The wireless connection is very bad but that's because the school is not used to this many people on campus at one time. The printing on campus is reasonable they give us so many pages that we can print before it costs money The need for a personal computer and printer is up to you. I think it is convenient to have your own computer just in case you need it for a class. We have multiple computer labs spread out throughout the campus.

Campus Housing: The dorms I live it are like perfect distance away from everything. It does not take that long to get to any of the buildings. The people in the dorms are really nice and I have made some really close friends in my dorm. The cost was very convenient and affordable. The RAs helped make the transition easier and they are very helpful when any of us need help.

Local Atmosphere: Small town living; safe but not a lot of exciting things to do. Friendly people who take pride in the university. Beautiful parks nearby. Traveling about 30 min will bring you to movie theaters, shopping and more assortment of restaurants.{

Campus Strictness: I have not had any problems with the rules on campus. Clearly stated when you enter as a student. But all policies are consistent.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Typical mountainous weather in WV. Cold winters with snow, nice weather in the other seasons.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Small dorm rooms mostly; suite living is most common with up to 8 per suite. Several new dorms this year but still have 3 older dorms with a lot of needed maintenance. All dorms do have new furnishings however.

Off-Campus Dining: Only a few restaurants locally but food is good in the local pubs, restaurants. Few fast food restaurants in the small town. Traveling about 30 minutes brings you to many other offerings however.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships offered through the school based on merit. Also possible athletic scholarships. Work study is a plus as well. Nearly all students receive some type of financial aid.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Only a few greek clubs on the campus. No Greek housing only offered to my knowledge.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Like the Criminal Justice classes thus far and the professors. Solid curriculum and low ratio of students to professors makes it easier to get help when needed.

Academics: Diverse majors offered and adequate study areas throughout the campus. Also the ACES programs is available if you find yourself having problems in a particular class. Very good health science and music classes. Liberal arts school so you have the opportunity to have a well rounded education

3 College Freshman

Parking: Many students have their own cars so parking does fill up quickly near the dorms but there is always a place to park. More difficulty on evenings with sporting events or weekends with the football games.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Not a lot of peer pressure for drinking or drugs. Many students travel home on weekends. No alcohol allowed in the dorms or on the campus. Safety is very good at this university.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Like the smaller size of the campus and class size is small. Enjoy meeting students from many other states and countries. A lot of opportunities for athletes to continue to play sports. More updates coming to the campus and they are expanding their curriculum and majors along with graduate studies.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Love the small campus and the grounds are very nice. Easy to walk to and from class in short amount of time. Beautiful new football/multisports complex and plans for baseball field improvements. Some of the classrooms need updating. Not a lot to do beyond classes and sports.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Several options including cafeteria with salad bar and also sandwich/coffee shop but the hours are not always adequate for my schedule. Not a lot of variety in the cafeteria food.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is long but the FAO was wonderful in helping students and parents.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's on a mountain in rural West Virginia the weather is always what is expected for the season currently taking place. Less things happen in the winter, but not much can be done outside in the winter and a lot of the campus loves to be outdoors.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is a wonderful place to begin the future!!

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's located in a small town with not much to do off campus. The campus activities board and the intermural board always make sure the students have something to do. The closest place to go shopping, or a somewhere with a variety of food is a half hour away.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: There is only one main dining hall with limited hours. The diner on campus is where most students congregate as well as the coffee shop. The food is average and there isn't much of a variety. The hours on the weekends are also a problem.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: With such a small campus, in a rural part of the state there is not much diversity. The students that are not of the same background as the majority are mostly accepted.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are hardly any places to go off campus for night life. The places that are off campus do not let underage students in without appropriate I.D and card at the bar so even if underage students are there they cannot drink.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: With a small town, the off- campus housing is not something most students choose to do. The University built four new resident halls that more students are moving into. The proximity to the campus from off-campus housing is close, as well as everything in town.
