5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Even though registering for classes may be difficult it is a wonderful school to be a part of and I have learned a lot, not just from class material but from being able to be my own person and live away from home on a beautiful campus

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many graduates are getting job offers and soon to be graduates are able to attend job fairs to see what local companies have to offer. The career center on campus is a good place to go if there are questions that you have about resumes, interviews, etc

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I haven't had to utilize many resources on campus but I've heard good things

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I spent 2 years in on campus housing and enjoyed it

5 College Junior

Greek Life: As a member of a sorority I think that Greek life has a huge positive impact on our campus life and my life as well

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: No real houses maintained by nationals

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: For a school of 17,000+ very poor athletic department

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a real student! Many come for the party reputation school has. No one seems to take higher education seriously here. Since I'm paying for this I demand the best I can get. Go else where if had the money.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are regulations and rules set in place to punish those caught with alcohol and other drugs. However, alcohol use is common, and some more can be done to limit its use in the dorms and around campus.

Health & Safety: Overall, the security and Public safety system set up is very safe. However, there have been multiple crime occurrences that we have been alerted about as students. The campus overall is very safe, and I have yet to witness any obscene occurrences. The school simply must tighten up on the sexual assault incidents that have occurred in areas such as the parking lot, where there is limited security.

Overall Experience: The class structure on campus is great. Most professors are very passionate about what they teach and their teaching styles definitely are very helpful. Some teachers aren't as interactive with students, and that can improve but overall most teachers are very friendly. Class sizes are generally medium sized, except for some lectures, which are in the main hall. Overall, the content of the D2L online program should be used by all teachers for to better an already good experience.

Overall Experience: As a member of the 8 year medical program at West Chester University in conjunction with the Drexel College of medicine, I would say the value of a degree is very high for me. I have very high aspirations for my career and the help on campus for me is great. Not only do I have access to alumni in the program who are currently attending medical school at Drexel, I also have a great set of advisers on the pre-med board including Dr. Zimniski. They are always available to speak to in terms of research and internship opportunities. They are frequently in contact and always willing to help.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus in the dorms is one of the best options available. I reside in Allegheny Hall. The dorm is generally clean and it is very close to food options as well as classes. There are many social events in the building and living is very convenient. The building also allows for networks of friendships to form and a close-knit community.

Greek Life: There are lots of greek organizations on campus. However, they aren't too difficult to get into. I have many friends in organizations, but they aren't awalys fully devoting time to the organization. It is not much of a party school and thus greek life isn't too much of a factor.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The school does provide a gym and a great athletic center for all students to use. It has a variety of equipment and also provides basketball courts for use. The staff at the gym is very friendly, and the gym at times can be packed, but the hours allows for any one to get a workout in at any point in their schedule.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: West Chester University is a great school overall. The environment is nice and friendly and the school isn't too big which allows for a nice, closely-knit community. In terms of academics, there are great instructors here, although there could be better cooperation between teachers and students at times. There are many resources on campus to help students. The extra services such as food and activities are abundant on campus. The school overall is my type of school because of it's size and because of the resources that are so readily available. There may be minor improvements to be made, but overall it is a good school.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: I personally am not involved in the Greek life on campus but there is a large prevalence throughout the campus. They run many activities and hold many events.

Health & Safety: There are safety meters every so often so you can always have a place to go. The campus sends out crime alerts and updates to the students to keep every one in the know. They also look into any crimes or sexual assaults happen and resend out messages when he issue is resolved. There are security guards in buildings after eight o clock.

Drug Safety: You will smell marijuana every once in a while but the RA's are pretty good with caching it. Alcohol is more prevalent but the police are very on top of it. The campus is a dry campus and has police on the campus. However, you see drunk people often and they can be annoying.

Overall Experience: West Chester has one of the best education programs in the state. Therefore, I am going to have a very good stading in the teaching world once I graduate with a degree from here.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The theater department is amazing with all professors knowing their parts of theater extremely well.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Students are very accepting of everyone. There was actually a Donald Trump on 4-24-16 and there were over 500 people protesting the hate of Donald Trump. There were different things written on the signs, but everyone there shared the same common goal of going against Trump's hatred of minorities. There were many different minorities there as well.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: West Chester University is a dry campus and will not tolerate drugs or alcohol, even if you are 21 or older. I feel safer without alcohol present on campus.
