Sports Are a Big Deal! Varsity sports at West Liberty University are usually a big deal and everyone through out campus gets involved. We have very nice training facilities and the athletic staff are dedicated to helping improve everyone. Intramural sports could probably be a little bigger because I feel like they are covered by the varsity sports, but other then that sports at West Liberty University are great!

I am a psychology major and I love WLU's psych program! The teachers are passionate about the field and they properly prepare us for graduate school. (Although the WLU does not offer psychology/counseling past a bachelor's degree.) I am planning on going to grad school for counseling, so I will have to transfer, but the undergrad program is excellent. I am not concerned about finding a career in the field and I do not know what career services they offer.
