College Junior

Drug Safety: I am not on campus a lot other than to attend my classes so I can't say for sure what the drug scene is truly like. I know most kids seem to be pretty straight while attending and a lot of students in my program do not miss class. We are also subject to drug testing so I don't see a lot of drug use.

College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I really can't say for sure what experience students may have trying to find reasonable housing. I currently own my own home and when I did rent I had a full time job to cover the expenses so what may have been not so expensive to me, may be expensive to a student.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's small enough that you can get one on one time with your professors if needed and most of them are willing to go out of their way to help to the best of their ability. This is nice for me since I am a non traditional student, raising a family. It's also nice that you can pass by someone and they will say hello or smile, you really don't get a lot of that anymore.

3 College Junior

Weather: We have some pretty harsh winters which makes traveling somewhat difficult. Once we arrive on campus the roads and sidewalks are always nicely maintained. The only down fall is walking in negative temps outside from building to building to get to classes.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Since the campus is a small private campus located in a small community, I never feel that I am not safe. Everyone is very attentive and respectful of the campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are several chain restaurants and a lot of small privately owned businesses as well. My favorite is probably CJ Maggies. They offer a large portion for the cost, so there is always left overs to take home. Though they don't offer a discount to students, it is a nice place to go.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Living in a rural community we don't have things like public transportation or malls and things like that. However if you enjoy the outdoors this is a great place to be. The mountains are full of skiing, hiking, bike trials, fishing, hunting, etc.

4 College Junior

Academics: The program is very nice. All professors are helpful and provide as much insight to the field as possible.

College Junior

Greek Life: I wasn't sure how to answer these because our campus no longer offers fraternities or sororities.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Our campus is well taken care of and most if not all policies are followed and enforced

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It went well, its just I could have used more money to offset some of the tuition.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had a Internship yet, but I plan to have one soon.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love being a History major my teachers are entertaining and make me love my major more and more everyday. Although if I want a career in my major I will have to move.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms can be considered small, but the housing staff do an excellent job clean everything. So the campus is fairly clean even in the winter.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not big on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The campus does have rules, but they are understandable, and the security on campus is very helpful and are willing to pick you up in town if you have no way back to campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The Landlord of most of the apartments is excellent, she's very sweet and is flexible. Her names Shelly!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: their are a few original restaurants and diners. Also there is your basic fast food, like taco bell, Wendys and DQ.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wireless goes out a lot and everyone's on their xbox lives and it messes with the internet.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: It's quiet and not to far from Morgantown. I enjoy it, and the towns people are pretty decent.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: We only have one bar/ dance hall. It's called Lexis and it isn't the best, but it works.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: If it snows, no one goes anywhere. Our campus is on a mountain and it is very hard to drive on the roads in the winter.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are not the main purpose of our school, but we do have a great number of athletes on campus. With the school being a private school we have some decent players to represent us.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The whole process of applying was stressful, but once we got past the basic information it wasn't as dreadful.
