5 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Administration: its just the right amount i think

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: didn't get enough money but process was easy

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: dorms are very close to classes, rooms are spacious

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have little experience with off-campus housing, but what I've seen is very nice and accommodating.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Chinese food here is okay but most of everything else is pretty good! There are a ton of pizza places to try but my favorite is Chris' Pizza. The little restaurants in town are so cute and most of them have really good food. However, most of them are pretty pricy. And everything is no more than a 15 minute walk from campus.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have never been to a party.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They make their rules clear and they are reasonable.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: All you have to do is file your fafsa and it usually goes smoothly from there unless of course you're chosen for verification which is a nightmare.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are enough good options to avoid the bad but there could be more.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Good amenities however the social atmosphere is awkward in the suites. Room assignments are provided quickly and efficiently. The cost for some dorms are outrageous but there cheaper options available. All dorms remain clean.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is very nice!!

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Options are great, but go quickly

5 College Junior

Campus Food: The food trucks options are amazing!

2 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Feel like I get a timely warning in the middle of the night Thursday-Saturday. Not very safe, most are sexual assaults.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The Rec center is great! Probably one of the few key features keeping me at this school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Joined a fraternity my first semester on campus. If we're being real its just okay. This isn't Penn State there aren't giant chapter houses, most are run down and greek life is slipping away on this campus. I give greek life a couple years at most before its gone. Kind of a waste of my money too. Brotherhood is almost as fake as sisterhood, don;t let anything fool you.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Tried to find an apartment or small house for my Sophomore year around the end of October. Everything was filled already and the prices were through the roof. Now I'm stuck in the traditional dorms again because I can't afford affiliated and will probably be miserable again for the next year.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: If you want to eat good, come to West Chester. The restaurants in town are great and there are so many options. I haven't had a bad meal in town yet. It seems that there is a restaurant every couple feet. Also the amount and quality of bars here is great. Can't wait to be 21.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Before I joined greek life, the party scene was AWFUL. No one would let you in and if you did get into a party it was usually a random weirdos house. Most of the fraternity parties are closed off, but you have to understand that its a liability not to and they could get in serious trouble. Join greek life or your social life won't exist here especially if you're a guy.

2 College Freshman

Administration: I can honestly say that I have never been caught drinking in the dorms. But, if you go out the cops are borderline harassing you if you seem even the slightest intoxicated. A friend of mine tripped over the sidewalk that was messed up and the cops followed him back to the dorm and arrested hum for public intoxication and underage drinking. Really dude? He wasn't bothering anyone leave him alone. Also when they do bag checks they aren't allowed to touch your bags, but some of the security guards disregard this rule and will feel up the bottom of your bag and move stuff around. too bad most students don't know their rights. Also I was written up for watching TV at a moderate level with my door open at 10:30 at night. So annoying. Nothing better to do. This school apparently used to be fun I don't know what happened.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I applied for financial aid twice and didn't get anything. Don't waste your time if you aren't a sibling of someone else in college or black.

Campus Housing: I've heard that affiliated housing isn't bad, but just wait till you get in the traditional housing. Tell me these aren't the dumpiest dorms you've ever seen and I'll call you a liar. I lived in Killinger Hall and had the worst nine or so months of my life. Want a bathroom with yellow pee stains all over the seat? Killinger's got it! Want an air conditioner that breaks when it actually gets warm out and you need it? Killingers got it! Want to feel like you live in a petri dish of germs all year round? What do you know, Killingers got it! This was the worst possible dorm I could of ever been placed in and I heard that the other traditional dorms aren't much better. If you get put in Killinger, don't bother coming here, it'll ruin your entire college experience.
