4 College Freshman

Weather: Though we had a really cold winter, this weather is getting much nicer and its nearly perfect weather. It rains occasionally. The weather is pretty standard though.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Good campus police service, many call boxes all over campus. The health center is not as great though. Diagnosis are not always accurate.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The music program here at WCU is one of the best in PA. The course load is intense but the more you learn, the more you will know and the better teacher you will become.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The music fraternities/sororities are great here on campus. It gave me a chance to make great friends and feel more comfortable here on campus. This had an intense process but it was all worth it in the end. This organization performs musically to promote music. It also provides service in the form of music.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: they offer off-campus opportunities that are helpful

2 College Sophomore

Campus permits are not that bad cost wise, but parking garages are kind of ridiculous

Transportation: As a freshman, the only way to get around locally is to get a rid with an upperclassmen or walk to your destination.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: The dorms are very strict concerning rules and regulations including underage drinking, drug use, visitation, and other policies. Violations of this usually call for involvement with public safety or the police who are just as strict and law abiding.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: While living off-campus is enjoyable, it is still a hassle because not only are houses costly, but obtaining one is a difficult process. House conditions can vary from very nice to falling apart, and amenities vary as well. Landlords can be difficult to reach as well as unhelpful. Parking is minimal. Usually a short walk to campus, but can be far. The nightly security guards that walk the streets are welcoming. It is a fun environment but also very strict with rules and regulations.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't participate so I'm not sure.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are quite a few places around campus that are affordable to students and offer student discounts.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: We have a very diverse campus that accepts all differences.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about our Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is decent, as are the options for housing. It is easy to make friends in the dorm halls with the availability of floor lobbies. Finding housing on campus is very hard to do, especially for those continuing into their sophomore year and on.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't go out to parties.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During the winter, especially this winter, we have experienced a lot of snow days.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The nursing program fully prepares students to enter into the health field. We do clinical work in notable hospitals such as A.I. DuPont and Paoli Hospitals. This major requires a lot of work, but it is required for this type of career.
