4 College Freshman

Majors: I'm an education major, so I am a Student teacher, which is kind of an internship. You don't get paid, but it's good experience and helps you have experience! Athletic training and nursing are the same here; you're always in the field learning.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process of getting into my English major was relatively easy. I didn't have to do a special application process when applying to the school. Once I was there, I just enrolled in English classes.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am an English Education major and love it! At AB, you get the experience you're looking for. My first time observing in an actual classroom was my Freshman semester. Professors are already helping me with a portfolio to find a job ater school, too.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: You're allowed to do as you please, with only a few rules. I personally love that it's a dry campus. The noise level is a lot less and it creates a good environment. Other than that, there aren't many rules that would affect us.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Since A-B is such a small school, everyone is involved and everyone is friends with everyone. We are all supportive of one another. The teams are new, so they aren't the greatest, but in coming years, I think they will win more often!

Computers: The Wifi could be a lot stronger. It doesn't reach the entire campus, and it kicks you off often. It hink with the expansion of the school, however, they will fix this problem soon.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: As of right now, there aren't really any options for living off campus, unless you want to live with your parents.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A-B has added a lot of new sports programs recently including Men's Volleyball, Men/Women Lacrosse. Few more programs are gonna start sometime next year. This gives a lot of incoming students opportunities campus wide.

4 College Freshman

Weather: It gets really cold at times in mid-January with some snow. Classes don't really get cancelled.

4 College Freshman

Majors: As a biology major, I enjoy all my classes. The thing with college is you take the classes that you enjoy. Professors are really easy to get along with. The fact that it's a small campus, you can access them easily one on one.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It's not that challenging as long as you have good grades from high school, take into account your SAT/ACT scores.

4 College Freshman

Majors: There are a variety of majors at A-B. My goal is to get to a pharmacy school once I graduate from A-B and I have no doubt in my mind that this college will fully prepare me for grad school.

3 College Junior

Majors: The challenges in getting into athletic training is very simple. One must do some clinical hours each semester and follow teams to learn if this is a good major for yourself. The Human Developement classes are the hardest but if you are able to learn the body it will help you through out the college experince. Pass certian class and hours are the criterea. And the one advice I would give to future students is to study hard and learn a way to learn and understand the material in their own way. Ask for HELP from fellow students they can help you more than the students.

2 College Junior

Majors: Most of the teachers are very respectful and caring about your college success and your college experince. There are a few though that like to play favorites. If you would have a problem it is more less that you must find a teacher who cares and is willing to help. I have enjoyed A-B but it was because of the friendships that you make up here. You will learn how to be a productive Athletic Trainer.

3 College Junior

Majors: With the experiences, I would probably do another major in mathematics. I have learned alot but am on edge because I am afraid of not being able to get into a the grad school I wish to attend. With the BOC being low passing rate it makes it harder. Hopefully the current sseniors can do better and improve the rep for Alderson-Broaddus Athletic Training.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing at Ab is very nice. There's decent space depending on which dorm you live in. The more costly dorms with the most space. Kincaid being the best with the apartment style dorms

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few small restaurants new the school, and they are okay. The better ones are in Clarksburg, which is about 30 minutes away.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I think this campus is very diverse. We have some international students and students from all over the country.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: This is a dry campus. No alcohol is allowed in dorms at all.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorm amenities are old and needs to be replaced but other than that, it's a great environment to be in.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love the small setting of the campus. The student to teacher ratio is outstanding.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Resident directors let some things slide sometimes.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: We're like in a mountain so there are no buses that come on campus. Usually, students have their own cars. Public transportation is hard to access here.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: You'll find a wide variety of guys and girls on campus.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Philippi is a small historical town. There are some good restaurants like Lil' Moes, Smokey Rays, and Fox's Pizza. There are parks and recreational places around the surrounding area. Philippi is a quite enjoyable town, but there are limited activites for college students.
