3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is good, but the fees are annoying. The fees should be covered in our tuition but they aren't; we have to pay out of pocket for each visit and for any prescriptions.

4 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am not involved in greek life but I have many friends who are, and they love it.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't experienced off campus housing yet.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are so many good restaurants and places to eat near campus.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Visitation is annoying. We have to sign visitors in and can only have 2 people at a time.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid process was okay. However I did not receive any scholarships.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: In my opinion the campus food is really good. I have not had a bad experience yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms was a great experience. It was a nice environment and very close to the dining halls, classes, etc. The price of the nice dorms was too much, though. It was a difficult process to get into housing.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of options for off campus housing. You can get an apartment or a house, and have it as far or as close to campus as you may like. There are also a range of prices. Most apartments and houses include some amenities as well which makes it somewhat more affordable than on campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always somewhere to go during the weekend. The best days to go out are on Thursdays' and Fridays'. Most parties are at off campus houses on High Street or Walnut Street. Most are fraternity houses, while others are sports teams houses. There is always something to do whether you go to a party on the weekend of you decide to go downtown to do something.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus food is great. West Chester is a town that has a downtown area with a lot of restaurants and shops so there are always tons of options to choose from. If you pick a nicer restaurant it will be more expensive, but there are inexpensive options as well. I think it's also varied with the different selections of food around the downtown area.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: The police officers are very nice and helpful. The RA's and directors around the school and dorms are also helpful. They are strict with their rules which I understand because a rule is a rule. Professors are also very professional with the way they handle their classes.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I didn't get the financial aid that I think I deserved and needed. My family is not financially set enough to pay for me to make my way through college so I had to take out a huge loan. I also didn't get any type of scholarship and I think my grades from high school were good enough to receive something.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus food is not the worst that I've had. They have some good options, but they are not always the healthiest. I love that Starbucks and Einstein's Bagels are part of the meal plan as well as Chick-Fil-A. I personally don't like Lawrence dining hall, but I do know people that love it there. I like the Diner and Sykes the best. I think I like Sykes more because there are more options and you can always get something on the healthier side. Using flex dollars at Larry's is what my friends and I usually do. It's like a convenience store, so they have everything you need if you run out of some basics and don't want to spend actual money.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I love the housing at West Chester! The building I lived in this past year, Allegheny Hall, was just steps away from our academic buildings. It provided plenty of space for my roommate and I, and it was very clean. There were socials for our floor every month in our multi-purpose room. I think the best option for housing would be the affiliated dorms, they are pricey but I think it's worth it. You get tons of amenities such as study lounges, your own bathroom and free laundry.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: It looks promising if I want to go off-campus

4 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: Some great places that deliver late at night during finals.

3 College Student

Administration: The public safety put forth average work

3 College Student

Scholarships: It was a confusing process at first. And took awhile

3 College Student

Campus Food: The food gets boring after awhile on campus.

4 College Student

Campus Housing: Very organized, friendly, and social.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It is hard to find a good place for a good price! Zukin is lenient and willing to work with you and their prices are fair, but they're not always the easiest to work with. There are so great places but start looking early for them-- like October early!

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Town is right there and it is the perfect place for any food you want. For dinner you have everything from salad works to sit down steak dinners. For a midnight drunchies run, there's RIggtown Pizza and Chris's PIzza.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: It's a fun school with a lot to do. The best parties are either at the sports houses or at frat houses. It has a positive impact on student experience but you do have to be careful because public safety is strict!!!

2 College Freshman

Administration: West Chester is very strict with underage drinking. DO NOT come back to the dorms with alcohol in your system- they will stop you. They are more focused on underage drinking than anything else.
