4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The campus diversity is rather noticeable in all of my classes. West Virginia State University is a very non traditional campus which creates many new opportunities for people.

Health & Safety: The cops routinely patrol the campus,but have a minimal presence.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: There is very little that the weather can do to prevent me from enjoying the campus.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: The only bad part about the parking is the parking spots not being able to accommodate larger vehicles.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I love the people at WVSU. Everybody is nice and easy to get a long with and talk to.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I am not from wv so i would rather live in Fl where i am from instead.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's too many fast food restaurants. There are some diners and small cafe's

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I haven't attended any events, however, our school just opened a new gym and it is big and beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: My family lives in Florida. If I want to go home, I drive with friends.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live off-campus. I have a room mate, which is the best route to take while in school. The more people the better sharing rent.

2 College Freshman

Nightlife: This area doesn't have the best night life, you will have to travel about 40 minutes or so for better clubs.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but from what my friends tell me, It is great.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I see the campus police everywhere. They even came to one of my classes to do a campus safety talk.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was able to get all of the financial aid i requested and needed. I am also able to get a summer grant that I was unaware of at first.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Winter time is AWFUL! when it snows, this campus rarely closes and it can prove to be extremely frustrating especially if professors are unmerciful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: For the most part, the attendance policy with most professors are reasonable. Some professors have ridiculous absence policies that are very difficult to achieve.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: WVSU is an ok school to attend. It is sometimes hard to get in contact with the right people at the right time. I wouldn't take any classes during the winter, as they rarely close campus, and you are expected to be in class even if it is dangerous driving conditions. Other than silly things, most professors have your best interest at heart and are very personable.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: It not to bad. Visitation you must have you id to enter into the buildings when necessary. Campus policies are set in place some are enforce and other they can be lax on them.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: It is a big thing on our campus. If you want student to come out of their dorms let them know that a Greek organization is throwing something. The best are the probates and everyone is out on the yard watching people cross.

3 College Senior

Diversity: My time being at this school I have yet to see anyone to be treated differently because of what they believe in or what they prefer. If you don't like someone you don't have to interact with them. And that what you see here. There is someone here for everybody.

3 College Senior

Weather: Because we are in the mountain the winter here can be pretty bad but if its not bad enough we still have to come to school. Spring is great. You see a lot of student hanging out, laughing and playing music.

Summer I really didn't like because of the A/C. It was hot in the rooms. Other than that it was great.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: There is security always driving around. The also have the emergency pole up so you can press the button. I have yet to hear of any crimes on campus.

4 College Senior

Academics: I like that it is very hands on now that I'm actually in my major. The workload can be overwhelming but it not to bad. The facility was just renovated so everything in the sports building is new. It is very nice.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: We are in the process of getting new dorm. People are very excited about it. The other dorms are ok. I dont hear a lot of people complaining about it. When I stayed on campus I like that everything was right there.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are not a lot of places to check out. It's the same. Subway, Wendy's, McDonald's, Italian and Mexican Restaurant. I know that subway give discounts. Other places I'm not so sure about.
