3 College Junior

Majors: For my particular major I've been the music librarian for the department chair, done mailings, and showed up at early hours for audition day. There is little pay for doing all of this. What makes it worthwhile is helping people and the department. My favorite internship pertaining to my major is teaching marching band.

5 College Junior

Majors: Although there are difficulties in my program and I have personal challenges, I would do it again. I plan to be either a high school or middle school band or orchestra director. I have a lot of concerns about finding a job in my field, but I am willing to travel.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are various physical descriptions of guys and girls that are too difficult to classify. There isn't just one "typical college student" appearance. Their interests are very diverse.

Off-Campus Dining: One has to drive twenty minutes to thirty minutes to the Highlands if they want to eat out at a decent restaurant. A lot of the time students resort to Dominos right down the street if they don't want the food on campus.

Greek Life: Greek life makes campus interesting. It's fun to watch the Greek week, rushes, and low-key hazing. A lot of non-Greeks views Greek activities as a wasted of time. As an ex-Greek I think it is splendid.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Entering as a Freshman I received two scholarships and got a decent amount of aid. The past few years the aid increased. I have no idea what I'll get for this coming school year.

Academics: You get the same education as you would anywhere else. The professors are very helpful and want you to succeed. You wouldn't guess their qualifications. The curriculum is fair. The registration process for classes is pretty fair too. You always want to schedule for the gen eds first to ensure you get in those classes. Sometimes the workload for each class is difficult, but a lot of my classes give projects or tests and.There are tutors that are very helpful. The popular study areas on campus include: the union, Jazzman's, the library, dorm lobbies, the quad, the English major lounge, the Media arts center, and the "table" in the music department.

3 College Junior

Academics: I tried being a double major in music education and English education. I recently made English education a minor. My workload was ridiculous. I had a lot of projects and skill based learning I had to master. The facilities could use updating. The library just had a computer lab ripped out. It would be nice if there were more printing options. The fine arts building needs updated in a lot of ways. There are internship/ job opportunities for both in work study and tutoring.

5 College Junior

Majors: My program accepts a lot of students to build it. The students get weened out the first year based on the work load and difficulty. An audition is expected of every music program.

3 College Junior

Majors: My program's difficulty increases with each year. A lot of the requirements have changed since I was a freshman and I'm kind of caught in the middle. For example, we now have a piano proficiency test. I feel we should not have group piano classes, and students should be required to take private lessons if there is going to be a proficiency test at all. We need a new building, a lounge, new practice rooms, and just more space. There aren't too many internships or job opportunities through the program that aren't work study or tutoring. Even then, some tutors don't want to have to go through the trouble with the learning and student development program.

Local Atmosphere: The closest shopping center is 20-30 minutes away. I'm okay with this, however they should build a gas station closer. The area is pretty rural near the college. The locals really seem to appreciate students. Our main attraction closest to the college is Oglebay. Wheeling is the closest city.

Health & Safety: The campus security is very strict in comparison to the student body which are mainly decent citizens. Sometimes they inconvenience students that actually care about their development in academics by treating them like criminals.

Campus Strictness: The visitation policy is to sign in only 3 visitors in a month. This does not help people who have family that live far away. Hopefully the family can stay at the bed and breakfast. The campus a smoke and alcohol free campus too. Although the administration may feel this will make students focus more on their academics some students just become more rebellious and participate in those activities anyway in hidden areas.

Campus Housing: The dorm rooms are small except for Bonar. Some of the dorms don't have very good storage space. Also, some dorms don not have air conditioning. Not many people actually attend the events run by resident assistants. A lot of students just keep within their friend groups. The cost to live in the dorms is pretty decent. It is more convenient to live on campus where everything is.

Campus Dining: Some of the meat they serve in the cafeteria isn't real so I stick to lunch meat a lot. Also they need more options. The less healthy food such as pizza hut and taco bell can be bought with the meal plan, but subway can't. I feel this is a problem. If Subway used the meal plan that is what I would be eating a lot.

Off-Campus Housing: The closest apartments that are off campus are in fowler and I have never been there.

4 College Junior

Athletics: A lot of the student body attends the football games, however sometimes they aren't the greatest. My school gets more support for the basketball team because of their success each year.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite college experience so far is meeting life-long friends through the campus in both events in my department and in my classes, and move-in day.

Facilities: Because the university is so small and old there are limited places to hang out on campus. Also there are time restrictions on certain areas which are inconvenient for studying. The university attempts to hold events through Homecoming, move in week, dead week, and finals week. I've always attempted to participate in the events.

Facilities: I really enjoy the academic programs compared to other schools. I feel the small student teacher ration really helps increase learning. During the day you see more people socialize on campus in the limited places there are to do so. The campus is in the process of updating some buildings and programs. For example the dental hygiene program got an entire new building. I hope other programs can eventually get new buildings more space. The fine arts building really could use updating as well as the location of the education department. There are a lot of student organizations that make campus life enjoyable.
