Overall Experience: I really like how different professors have different teaching styles; they all have their own way of teaching students their material. This interest me because I am able to learn in different ways. The class sizes are pretty standard for the most part, unless you take a big lecture class that can have at least 100 students in it. This may seem intimidating at first, but it's not that bad once you get used to it.

Overall Experience: I think West Chester University carries a pretty good name so if you're currently a student at WCU or and alumni of WCU people will probably already view you in better light than others. I really like the alumni network at WCU because they have already graduated, they still come back and talk to current students and offer great advice. Many of them even open up opportunities for current students at WCU, which is great.

Health & Safety: My second year at West Chester University, there were a plethora of sexual assaults going on. However, my third year at WCU I saw a drastic decline in the amount of sexual assaults that have occurred. This shows me that the campus takes this issue very seriously and work very hard to prevent these situations from happening. Now, I feel much safer walking around on campus, day and night.

Campus Housing: The traditional dorms are fairly small, but it is easy to meet new people while you're living there. The affiliated dorms are much bigger and modern but it's harder to meet new people. Both dormitory styles are located around the same area as the academic squad so traveling to class is fairly easy.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big at WCU. They host a plethora of events that students enjoy participating in. Some non-Greek students may view Greek students as snobby or cocky but many of the other non-Greek students actually like being around them.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Overall Ii think the athletics at WCU is pretty good. I think the most fan support lies with football and basketball. Everyone is always filled with high energy and school spirit at these games.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: West Chester University is a good school, but I do believe that there is lack of excitement as opposed to other schools. I will admit that Sykes After Dark is a good attribution to school and provide some enthusiasm for the students but there is still something missing.

Overall Experience: I love this school. There are some things I would change but overall I'm glad I decided to go here.

P.S. It would've gotten a higher rating if the school didn't bring Donald Trump to our campus during finals week.

Health & Safety: They try. But they also fail.

Campus Housing: I live in the south campus apartments. Dorm life was meh, but the apartments are great.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks exist. The system is a little sexist because of the fact that sororities are not allowed to have houses but fraternities are. The only greek-life I've been remotely interested in are the co-ed service based fraternities.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The athletic events are always well attended but aren't all consuming. You won't be shamed if you don't go football games but the people who do are always full of school spirit. Also I'm in love with the marching band. The recreational centers are fantastic; I use them to work out 2-4 times a week. There is a great variation of group classes if you're into that.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My choices were limited strictly to the schools in the PASSHE program. I think I chose the best in the bunch.

Campus Housing: Living on campus as a transfer student is the worst thing to ever do! You will never meet people.

Overall Experience: I feel prepared to go out into my field (communication) and do something with it. The classes at West Chester weren't very challenging, but I did become better organized and learned how to manage my time well.

Campus Housing: I will say that campus housing is very efficient when you switch rooms. They take roommate concerns very seriously and want to help you
