3 College Junior

Career Services: You don't really hear a whole lot about alumni networks but some of the older generations in the community put in a lot of work, money and time

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: In the business and economic we have the best best best chair and staff of the entire school! They are so helpful and knowledgable about real world experience while helping you with absolutely anything!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Our academics offered are very tailored to our communities work force. They are currently working on adding new programs.

4 College Junior

Student Body: We are a really friendly, help anyone out that we can, fun group of people.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Pretty normal college campus . Easy to get around and supplies all the necessary needs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was a transfer student who moved back home. Once I figured out what degree I was going to go after and accomplish I have had tons of help and tons of encouragement from all my professors, advisors and upper administration. I have made great friends and connections while being at school. I have really enjoyed it once I became apart

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have a lot of fun activities and clubs. Our student body is comprised of a decent size international community. They are really involved with the school

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Our wireless connection is pretty good, computer lab computers are great, printers are great.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online is always a challenge since it's not a face to face conversation but wvup really tries to make the best of it

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's really hard when they say you're not qualified for financial aid because you're not 24 even though you've been independent for 4 years on taxes. My dad makes more than average but he does not support me. It's been me paying out of pocket each semester because the school " can't help." Very frustrating.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's a great place that is convenient and close to home, semi affordable compared to most universities and you can still get a four year degree. Great professors and advisors once you get through the gen eds and start taking your degree serious.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I;m out of state but qualify for reduced tuition. It looks like a huge number on paper but when compared to in state tuition it hardly puts a dent in things.Out of state tuition is expected to be larger so I can't complain much I just wish the reduced tuition actually reduced it significantly.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: It kind of irritating that you always have to work around their time. They are all very nice and helpful but I work full time and love an hour away. It can get difficult to work around them.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: The student resources are great. The library and computer labs are filled with plenty of study space and resources to study and research.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: You can print for free which is awesome. Connecting your personal computer is really easy as well. I also love and hate the fact that in some classrooms the wifi is spotty. Good because it keeps me off my phone but bad because my laptop will run slow.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: I don't think a lot of the professors really understand how some of the tools work. We've switched online applications and they are just as confused as the students. I also do not like that we don't have a choice in eText or hard copy. I do very poorly with eText and have to use money from my own pocket to pay for both versions.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Everybody is very nice. They some times tend to stick to themselves and don't branch out much but when you find someone from one of your classes outside of class or need assistance with anything they are typically very sociable.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Accounting is a very than what you would think. I really love the accounting and business teachers. they are all very knowledgeable and have tons of experience. I thoroughly enjoy talking to them.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I really enjoy the range of classes that they offer. The only downside is they are switching to a heavier use of online courses and because the teachers aren't used to it either it makes for some very difficult course work.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I come from a very small school so it is odd coming to a school where I don't know anybody. This school is very large but the college I attended before this was a lot smaller and I had quite a few classmates that I went to high school with here. I really hate how the out of state students, even at reduced tuition, are doubled from in state. However, it is still very cheap compared to most schools.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Everything is located in a very von sway fashion. The school's lay out is very peaceful, if that makes sense. They have lot's of activities every week. We have a great study center. The library is located beside the student lounge. The food is great. I fell in love with the pizza. When i look around every student looks at peace with what they are doing, and that puts me at peace.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Well to start the library is loaded with computers. You can print off of the computers in the library or the labs all you want, and that helps. We have five computer labs downstairs side by side. So with all that the need for a personal computer at school is pointless. But a computer at home is a MUST. The network at school is up to speed. They notify everyone if their is going to be any changes either by text or e-mail. W.V.U.P. has all their duck's in a row,for sure.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am majoring in Multi-Craft Technology. I have worked this field all my life, and I know with this degree I will get the better positions for my old age, so I have a heads up on the teaching's. And that makes it unique to me, the way they are giving the hands on experience, after teaching you the written aspect of the situation. We are not over loaded, but they keep my nose in the books.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am getting two year degree. I am forty one years old. I haven't had use my brain like this in a long time. So it's like i'm stepping out of a long nap. As the weeks pass my confidence grows. W.V.U.P. knew exactly how to set my classes up for me to achieve my goals. The professors are very proud of what they do, you can tell by the way they do their job. They are kind, well spoken and know their trade. I am thankful for what they do. And I am proud of my college.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The school is five miles from my home. The staff was/is very helpful through out the whole process. My instructors have worked with me through a week of the flu. It seems that W.V.U.P. wants to see everyone succeed. And as far as transferring credits, I looked on my olsis account one day and there were my credits, and I didn't have to ask at all. I didn't have money for food my second week. They gave me a fifty dollar food card. It was to be paid back, but how convenient was that? No confusion or frustrations.
